Democracy in America (vol 2)

Tocqueville (1805-1859) was a French diplomat, historian, and scientist.  In the 1830s he came to America to examine our prison system but traveled extensively to study America as a whole.  His conclusions were printed in 1835 in two volumes called Democracy in America.  I have had both volumes in paperback for a while and decided […]

Blood Feud

My only interest in this book is that I, as an American citizen, am concerned about the leadership of our country.   The book is captivating for sure, and also plenty disgusting. If half the things Klein describes are true it is a scandal of epic proportions. The problem with the book is that Klein gets […]

Things That Matter

We have all been encouraged by the life story as well as the writings of this conservative commentator. For the Christian, there are a few things that cannot be accepted. Krauthammer does not believe that life begins at conception (p. 200) nor does he believe that creation is acceptable science (p. 210). However, his essays […]

How Christians Should Relate to Governme...

I read the Kindle version of this book.  I find that when I do that, my reading can get interrupted by several days or even weeks (because I’m also reading one or two other books on the same device).  For the most part I enjoyed Grudem’s thoughts and points on Christian involvement in government.  I […]

The Roots of Obama’s Rage

This is the book on which the movie 2014 is based.  What an eye-opener this is!  D’Souza is Indian born and a student of Obama’s life and what makes the man tick.  After thinking he had Obama figured out, he finally came to the conclusion that Obama is living out the life of his activist […]

Mein Kampf, Vol 2

Vol. I of Hitler’s philosophy is titled “Reckoning,” having to do with early history of his National Socialist movement and how he began his public meetings.  Vol. II is titled, “The National Socialist Movement.”  This includes 15 chapters of historically interesting material seen from Hitler’s personal animas toward everyone but the Aryan race.  Here we […]

Rediscovering God In America

This book is an attempt by the author to demonstrate that the history of the United States of America is indeed a nation founded “under God,” and must continue to hold that conviction. Throughout the book Gingrich shows that the history of the United States is one firmly rooted in the belief in the existence […]

Mein Kampf, Vol 1

Mein Kampf (“My Struggle”) is the autobiography and political philosophy of the 20th century’s most despicable human being. Written while in prison for his failed Munich revolution of November 1923, Hitler produced the first volume in 1925 and the second in 1926. I am sure that reading his words does not compare to observing his […]

Liberty and Tyranny

I’m not one to recommend books from radio personalities but I couldn’t refuse this one.  I read it and would recommend it to others who, like myself, need a refresher course in constitutional law and the founding documents of our country.  The contrast between what our founding fathers believed and what we are hearing today […]

Thomas Jefferson and the Wall of Separat...

Every Christian ought to read this book and be familiar with its arguments in light of the anti-Christian “separation of church and state” culture in our courts, many of them declaring any form of public Christianity unconstitutional. We have priceless religious freedom guaranteed in our Constitution, guarantees we are losing in the courts. In exploring […]
