For anyone desiring to educate themselves about the Constitution, and the religious (specifically, Christian) and moral foundations upon which it is based, I highly recommend this book as an excellent primer. It lays out, in a logical and consistent manner, the framework of our Constitution and the rationale of the Founding Fathers who created it.

Furthermore, it exposes the fallacies behind the modern-day love affair with a "living Constitution" and a dissolution of the separation of powers as e

A book like this should be a part of every family's study of the Constitution. In fact, I have a companion study guide for it that I am using to teach my children. It not only breaks down the Constitution into bite size pieces, but discusses the 3 main fundamental principles that it was based on; a religious foundation as a necessity to keeping freedom, a right to freedom of person and property, and that we must protect our freedom against human nature.

I'm so glad I read this. Horowitz lays out very clearly the differences between the way our Founding Fathers set up our country and where it is today. Even though it was written over 40 years ago, the book is just as applicable today.

One of the best books I've read on the constitution and the checks and balances put into place with the founding of the country. I count this as one of the foundational books I've read on the subject of the constitution, it really opened my eyes to a lot of principles of the constitution that I had never considered before. VERY highly recommended.

I loved this book. The author makes the intents of our Founding Fathers and The Constitution very understandable. Every LDS member, or American for that matter, should read this book. If you want to understand what is happening in our society today, this book is a great place to start. I would recommend it to everyone. Love it.

A very powerful book. I wish that all Latter-day Saints would read this book, take it's message to heart, and educate ourselves and those around us in the true principles of freedom with which we have been blessed as part of this "most glorious Constitution". It's message was timely when it was written in 1970. It is even more so today.
Adam Hinckley
Great book if you want to know what some the leaders of the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have said about the constitution. It states where our government has gone wrong, but in the end the author doesn't have recommendations of how to solve the problem, that was a bit of a let down.

I have not finished this book yet, but it has been excellent as far as I have read it. It is currently packed away somewhere since our last couple of moves.

This book solidified some of my political leanings. The book is pretty heavy reading and it has been a while so I need to read this again.
