Writing at the threshold of the twentieth century, Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924) and Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1916) believed that a recovery of statesmanship was the only hope for the American nation—then mired in political corruption, bureaucratic wrangling, and legislative gridlock. Thus, the stories of the nation’s early days and early heroes were tales they were particularly eager to tell.
Over the course of the next two decades both men would rise meteorically to places of prominence and power. But, as they wrote these tales they were only beginning their public service careers. They were enthralled with the idealistic notion that they might be used to herald a new day of American greatness by recovering memories of an earlier day of national heroism.

This book’s primary intention is to look simply and briefly at what the Bible says about poverty relief. Because the Bible is itself by nature practical (Proverbs 3:5–6), this book is inevitably practical as well. In fact, we hope that it will prove to be helpful as a manual for action (James 1:22).PURCHASE THE BOOK ON AMAZON READ ON KINDLE RIGHT AWAY!

Other nations find their identity and cohesion in ethnicity, or geography, or partisan ideology, or cultural tradition, he argued. But America was founded on certain ideas—ideas about freedom, about human dignity, and about social responsibility.
I always felt that I should provide a moral philosophy thread to tie those artifacts together into a coherent narrative; thus, this book.PURCHASE THE BOOK ON AMAZON READ ON KINDLE RIGHT AWAY!
