While at times I found this book a little difficult to follow, and it required me to read it in solitude, without distraction in order to follow and understand, I fully admit that I am NOT a student of politics, nor of our judicial system. However, this is a read that I believe every American of voting age should read! And I believe it should be a mandatory read for High School and collegiate students, as well.

With our political arena as corrupt as it is today, and the very future of our personal rights at stake within this country, Arnn points out just what our founding father's wished for the future of this great nation, as well as our firm foundation of belief in God.

Speaking of the Declaration and Constitution, Arnn writes: "The Founders understood the documents to be connected, to supply together the principles and the details of government, to be persuasive and durable unity." He further writes, "The words of the Declaration have a way of continuing to ring across the ages."

One of his closing statements reads: "Because of the principles that our country serves, and the institutions by which it serves them, have a beauty hardly matched in all history, they sound a call that all can answer. In their attraction and in our response is the hope for a free people. That is the Founders' key."

A few years ago, I purchased copies of the Declaration and the Constitution to read. I had come to the point to believe that our Country was lost and without hope. Arnn uses those very documents to show us the path that was layed out for us in 1776, and even before that with Almighty God, for a Nation that would be self-governing, and with an endless supply of hope, and future never ending.

I give this work...

Five Stars and.... Thumbs Up!
