- “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.
“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 America was founded as a Christian nation. The evidence is unanswerable and irrefutable. This 1000-page book will 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 century. It has been newly typeset using a very readable font and added subheads. A new Foreword written by my long-time friend Dr. Archie Jones describes the background of the book and provides a brief biography of the author.” – Gary DeMar
Benjamin Franklin Morris’ book has been out of print for over 100 years. If you can find an original copy, it’s only because you have looked in the deep recesses of university libraries where the volume is likely collecting dust on dimly lit library shelves.
Organizations like the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State have done their best to ignore the content of the massive compilation of original source material found in this book. If Americans ever become aware of the facts assembled by the author in this historic encyclopedia of knowledge, arguments for a secular founding of America will turn to dust.
Reprinted by American Vision for the first time in over 140 years in 2007, we can’t keep this book in print!
It is already in it’s tenth printing, again in a beautiful high-quality smythe-sewn hardback version with an updated cover and several formatting improvements.
Don’t miss out on the fantastic wealth of information this 1000+ page book has in store. Your children and grandchildren are not being taught the truth of history in public school, and this book will correct that travesty!
Christian Life and Character could very well be responsible for the rediscovering of the truth of America’s foundation in Christianity. This book should be the cornerstone of any personal, professional, church or school library for as Chaplain Sunderland (1819-1901) of the 37th Congress stated: “It may become the morning star of the mightiest day of national regeneration the world has yet beheld!”
