Eric Metaxas offers a thrilling review of America's uniqueness, and a sobering reminder that America's greatness cannot continue unless people truly understand what their founding fathers meant for them to be. The book includes a stirring call-to-action for every American to understand the ideals behind the 'noble experiment in ordered liberty' that is America. It also paints a vivid picture of the tremendous fragility of that experiment and explains why that fragility has been dangerously forgotten - and in doing so it lays out our own responsibility to live those ideals and carry on those freedoms. Metaxas believes America is not a nation bounded by ethnic identity or geography, but rather by a radical and unprecedented idea, based upon liberty and freedom.

This book is awesome! Not only does Mr. Metaxas clearly explain his thesis, he does it in elegant, but very readable prose!
As a teacher, I would highly recommend it to 8th grade and above. Younger students with good vocabulary would appreciate it earlier also.
Have a history, social studies or current events class? Read this book!
Metaxas also wrote Amazing Grace, the story of how Wilberforce abolished slavery in England.
