American History

Discipling the NationsI Smell A Rat: Anti-Federalist Interpretation of American History by Dennis Oliver Woods

Approximately 35 minutes in run time, this DVD challenges the popular opinion among Christians that the U.S. Constitution represents the epitome of biblical civil government. It explores why Patrick Henry and other strong Christians of the founding era opposed ratification of the Constitution so vigorously. The legendary Patrick Henry argued almost single-handedly against ratification for 23 days in the Virginia Ratifying Convention. Many of his prophetic warnings have transpired: an imperial Supreme Court, two levels of oppressive taxation, a bloody civil war. Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is expensive. Ignorance is deadly. And now another anti-Federalist prediction fulfilled -- Muslims in the U.S. Congress and maybe our next President. Discover why Patrick Henry explained his rejection of James Madison's invitation to the Constitutional Convention with the pithy retort, "I smell a rat." What was the rat that Patrick Henry "smelt"? Get the truth now -- don't let them pull the wool over your eyes one more minute! Includes interviews with radio personality Larry Pratt, author Dr. George Grant, and others.
Discipling the NationsDiscipling the Nations by Dennis Oliver Woods

There was no Christian consensus on the U.S. Constitution at the time of ratification; it was enacted by the narrowest of margins in the midst of heated debate. This perfect bound book opens with anti-federalist and biblical analysis of the U.S. Constitution, paving the way for description of foundation, function, and form of biblical civil government. Provides alternative approach to that of many other contemporary, Christian authors, who typically adopt the Federalist view of the U.S. Constitution.

The Harsh Truth About Public SchoolsThe Harsh Truth About Public Schools by Bruce Shortt

The Harsh Truth about Public Schools combines a sound Biblical basis, rigorous research, straightforward, easily read language, and eminently sound reasoning. Whether one is a parent or parent-to-be, pastor, church staff member, or educator, this book has much to offer. It is based, first of all, upon a clear understanding of God's educational mandate to parents. Its second foundation is a thoroughly documented description of the inescapably anti-Christian thrust of any governmental school system and the inevitable results: moral relativism (no fixed standards), academic dumbing down, far-left programs, near absence of discipline, and the persistent but pitiable rationalizations offered by government education professionals.
