American Vision has just brought back into print another great book, The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. Originally published in 1864, it documents the Christian roots of our civil institutions in a way that would make modern secularists beg for mercy. Or as American Vision’s Gary DeMar says in their email marketing blurb:
I was debating an ACLU attorney at Christmas on an NPR station. I pulled out a Xerox copy of The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States and said to her: "Until you answer this book, the ACLU can’t make a case against America’s Christian founding." She was shocked when she saw it. She asked where I had gotten it. The only thing that gave her relief was the fact that the book was not in print. But now it is.
De Mar goes on to say
Be afraid ACLU. Be very afraid. Morris packs The Christian Life and Character with page after page of original source material making the case that American was founded as a Christian nation.

astound you and send enemies of Christianity into shock. Keep in mind
that it was published in 1864 and has been out of print for more than a
This book is now on my to-purchase list, along with another great history book recently republished from antiquity, Annals of the World,
a world history that covers from the beginning of known human history
up to the time of the book’s publication in the 17th century.
