Book Review: Rediscovering God in America

One of the things I am thankful for in my life is my upbringing in a Christian school. For those of you who have not experienced that, let me assure you that American history seen through the eyes of a Christian curriculum is much different than what you were taught if you went to public school!

In this book, Newt Gingrich explores the subject of the role of God and the Christian religion in American history. He accomplishes this by taking us on a stroll through Washington DC. As he visits the memorials and monuments that most of us are familiar with, he explains the purpose of each monument and the deeper spiritual, Christian purpose behind each memorial.

My children did not have the privelege of a Christian school education, but one thing this mom made sure of is that I gave them quality literature that gave the truth behind American history and the rich Christian history we enjoy in this country. This book is a valuable addition to that collection.
