Rediscovering God in America: Reflections on the Role of Faith in Our Nation's History and Future by Newt Gingrich


4 of 5 stars  ****

The book, Rediscovering God in America: Reflections on the Role of Faith in Our Nation's History and Future, by Newt Gingrich, is a review for this reader having read, listened, and viewed many books, Audiobooks, DVD's, and seminars by another American premier historian, David Barton. Newt Gingrich's account gives veracity to the claim that the United States of America is a Christian nation. It is evidenced in the written word of those who came before us and the Judao-Christian icons and symbols displayed in the architecture of our nation's most significant buildings. 

The book is an easy read and the audio version is read by Newt and his wife, Callista, who narrate beautifully together. This book also offers information about various buildings, past and present, their locations, and the times they are available to the public. A trip to Washington D.C. is a more complete and fulfilling experience once armed with a copy of this book. Newt makes the inanimate come alive with his expert prose and astute intellect.
