What started as a simple walk through Washington, D.C., to view the significant monuments, memorials, and artifacts found in our Nation's capital, began a profound journey of personal discovery and renewal for Newt Gingrich, one of America's most influential politicians and commentators.
His first stop was to the National Archives, where the immortal words from the Declaration of Independence that we "are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights," jumped off the page and into his heart with the simple truth that from day one in our country's history, the Author of freedom was not the state nor even the Founding Fathers.
Our basic human rights and freedoms, which have been the spark for all of America' ... more

The Muslim Brotherhood, or "Ikhwan," has engaged in terrorism, assassinations, and anti-Western, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence for almost a century--yet few Americans realize how powerful they really are. While we focus on al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, it's actually the Muslim Brotherhood, the world's oldest, most influential, and most anti-American Islamist group, that has become the preeminent voice and power in the Muslim world.
Hiding behind a cloak of respectability and expensive Western suits, the Muslim Brotherhood is installing vehemently anti-American governments and power structures throughout the Middle East and the world, as we sit back and cheer for the "democracy" of the Arab Spring.
Does God belong in the public arena of politics, business, law, and education? Or is religion a private matter only--personally comforting but publicly irrelevant? In today's cultural etiquette, it is not considered polite to mix public and private, or sacred and secular. This division is the single most potent force keeping Christianity contained in the private sphere--stripping it of its power to challenge and redeem the whole of culture.
With examples from the lives of real people past and present, Nancy Pearcey shows readers how to liberate Christianity from its cultural captivity. She walks readers through practical, hands-on steps for crafting a full-orbed Christian worldview, making a passionate case t ... more
mARK r. LEVIN HAS MADE THE CASE, IN NUMEROUS "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLING BOOKS "MEN IN BLACK," "LIBERTY AND TYRANNY," AND "AMERITOPIA" THAT THE PRINCIPLES UNDERGIRDING OUR SOCIETY AND GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM ARE UNRAVELING. IN "THE LIBERTY AMENDMENTS," HE TURNS TO THE FOUNDING FATHERS AND THE CONSTITUTION ITSELF FOR GUIDANCE IN RESTORING THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC.
For a century, the Statists have steadfastly constructed a federal Leviathan, distorting and evading our constitutional system in pursuit of an all-powerful, ubiquitous central government. The result is an ongoing and growing assault on individual liberty, state sovereignty, and the social compact. Levin argues that if we cherish our American heritage, it is ti ... more
