In a world with disappearing values and with so many turning their backs on God, it was enlightening to read of America’s religious roots in Newt Gingrich’s book Rediscovering God in America. He starts off by acknowledging the fact that America started off as a country that “understands that our unalienable right come from God.” However, over time the government has written God out of our American history. In this book he takes us on a photo walking tour to the monuments and places that have religious connotations throughout our nation’s capital.
The photos in this book are simply beautiful. This would make a great coffee table book to browse through as well as a conversation starter. I enjoyed the introduction, even if the reading was a little tedious! I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge for each location he wrote about. I would highly recommend this book for a history buff, especially someone with religious interests.
