Rediscovering God in America by Newt Gingrich


Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has written a beautiful little book about the importance of godly faith in our nation. Rediscovering God in America takes the reader on a tour of Washington, D.C., reminding us of the godly leaders and their wisdom in guiding our country through perilous times. Gingrich's reflections are accompanied by the outstanding photographs of his wife, Callista.
From the Washington Monument, to the Library of Congress, to Arlington Cemetery, Gingrich gives historical background of the person honored and/or the planning and building of the memorial as well as discussion of the religious influences and inscriptions present in the monument. Some of the stories he relates are familiar, but many more are not. I was particularly impressed by FDR's prayer asking, "O Lord, give us faith in Thee," and his call to the American people for "devotion to the word of God." This example and others reminds us of our nation's rich Christian heritage.
Rediscovering God in America, published by Thomas Nelson, has a message important for all Americans, but is a must-read for anyone traveling to our capital. The only thing missing is a detailed map, so we can find our way around.

Hi Margaret

Happy New Year to you! I trust you are having an enjoyable day. My name is Todd Stepp and I work for BooksChristian.com, here in Franklin, TN. We are a Christian owned & operated company that sells over 200,000 Christian products.

I have visited margarettraudt.blogspot.com and have noticed that you post book reviews on your blog. I wanted to see if you would be interested in partnering with us, enabling visitors to your blog to purchase books that you review, as well as other books that you may suggest to them (books of the day etc.). In return we would pay you 9% on every sale made. There is very little work that would need to be done on your end, as we provide all the tools to create links and codes that you can post on your blog.

I would love to discuss this further with you at your earliest convenience. I look forward to hearing from you!
