Reviews - What do customers think about IN THEIR OWN WORDS: Founding Fathers & the Bible?

Religious fanaticism as history  Jan 18, 2008
Gingrich claims that Jefferson issued a prayer for peace on March 4, 1805. Unfortunately for the religious right, that was the day of Jefferson's second inauguration.

Nothing in the records supports the existence of the prayer for peace. On top of that, the prayer for peace is not in any way representative of jefferson's views on any deity.

Gingrich cites a 1944 book for the quote. I checked the book (like he did not) and the pages are letters to Martha Jefferson and a Colonel Dunsmore; nothing about any prayer.

He further says its in the "Compilation of the messages and papers of the Presidents" but its not. I have read the entire jefferson section. One can go to Guttenberg and read the entire book. It looks as if Mr Gingrich's religious fanaticism got in the way of scholarchip.
Founding Fathers speak out.  Feb 27, 2007
Reviewed by Richard R. Blake for Reader Views (02/07)

"In Their Own Words" is a wake up call for American Citizens to return to patriotism. Bob Gingrich skillfully exposes how history revisionist have duped unsuspecting citizens, unfamiliar with early American history, into thinking that the founding fathers of our country were something other than dedicated men that founded a government to be guided into the future by the precepts of the Judeo-Christian Bible.

This is a bold plea for parents and grandparents to counter the efforts of these history revisionists. The book is comprised of a collection of essays drawn from the lives of 18 prominent Founding Fathers using direct quotations from their published works. These chosen excerpts clearly illustrate their personal thinking on God, the Bible, government, the nature of man, and the importance of the inclusion of Christian principles in government.

A quote from John F. Kennedy sums up Gingrich's premise: "For more that three centuries, moral values have been the life-support system of this country. The men and women who planted their stand on these shores in the year 1607 vowed to build here a nation founded on virtue and moral integrity."

Gingrich shows how these Founding Fathers were men of virtue, men of character, living moral lives, strong in their Christian faith. Patrick Henry's word attests to this when he said: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians: not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Regarding the "separation of church and state", I found an observation from a quote by Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist of particular interest. "The framers intended the Establishment Clause to prohibit the designation of any church as a `national' one...There is simply no historical foundation for the proposition that the framers intended to build a wall of separation (between church and state) ...The recent court decisions are in no way based on either the language or intent of the framers."

The book is well researched and thoroughly documented. Gingrich has provided the reader with a list of important works for further reading in addition to the references provided in the end notes listed for each chapter.

"In Their Own Words" is a must read for every Christian educator. This is a book that should be on the required reading list of every American History teacher and professor at both secondary and college level, and in every American public library. It should be read, studied, and recommended for inclusion in history and social studies curriculum and be read by every parent of school age children. Gingrich's writing is hard hitting, important, and timely.
