Be The People: A Call to Reclaim America's Faith & Promise

Carol M. Swain, PhD

The title of this book attracted me because I have felt for a long time that the direction of the United States of America has been drifting from the vision and hopes that the founding fathers had for it so many years ago. Since the Supreme Court decision in 1947 that there would be separation of church and state, the self-aggrandizing movement of the 1960's and 70's, to the legalization of abortion in 1973 this country has continued to be locked in a free fall of liberalization and selfishness that is breaking apart the links the nation has relied on.

Dr. Swain was born to a family of 12 in the rural poverty of the South in 1954, succeeded in graduating high school, put herself through college and graduate school to become a leading voice in bringing America back to the Judeo-Christian foundation of its beginning. She has seen the pain and the angst that the protests of the 1960's brought. She is a staunch supporter of what the country stood for and has the hopes that America will once again recognize the foundation that it was built upon.

The author addresses racism, prayer in school, abortion, immigration, the family, and our National Sovereignty in a straight-forward, pragmatic, well thought out discussion and gives solutions to the problems that plagued this nation. Written with a strong Christian voice, the book makes reasonable arguments for a return to the caring and family centric country that it was.

I recommend this book for those who have questions about the direction of the United States and concerns about the future. I received this book for free from Booksneeze.com in return for writing a review on line.
