The Founders' Speech to a Nation in Crisis: What the Founders Would Say to America Today (Paperback)
In a work described as "a timely reminder of what makes America great" and "a single source for the understanding of America's Founding," and reviews such as "I couldn't put this book down What a resource....I ordered a case for my local politicians," author Steven Rabb has created a powerful read through the synergized writings of America's Founding Fathers. Through the words of the Founders, Mr. Rabb has demonstrated with amazing clarity the relevance of America's founding ideals and their resonance for our nation today.
Framing the work as a reunion between the Founders in contemporary America, Mr. Rabb gives voice to their views on modern-day issues covering everything from religious liberty and the rule of law to freedom of speech and the threat tyranny poses still today. The Founders' Speech to a Nation in Crisis is a tapestry of the Founders' own words written in ten chapters and woven into a single, powerful speech to America.
In the first few chapters, we are reminded of the God-given rights of man along with the virtues and duties required in a people who seek to retain them. Through the writings of George Washington, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and many of their contemporaries, the speech builds as the Founders caution against the threats to liberty from unbounded power and unrestrained majorities. It brings home the purpose and promise of the Constitution that defends the rights of the people while defining and limiting the role of government. The final chapter is a powerful charge for every American to heed the call of the founding generation and stand to defend our threatened liberties.
The continuing relevance of our Founders' words, revealed in this meticulously crafted work like no other, is a clarion call to defend our natural rights that will stun readers and leave them celebrating America's founding ethos and principles.
