Ezra Taft Benson, the former Secretary of Agriculture in the Eisenhower administration, as well as the former president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, brings his knowledge of the gospel and his constitutional knowledge together in one place.He seeks to help us understand why the Constitution is important, why we need a republican form of government and what God's role was in the founding of our nation.He uses words of prophets as well as founding fathers to teach these important principles.
There's not a lot I can say to help you understand the wisdom contained in this book, so instead I'll just give you a few of my favorite quotes:
"Christ and all who followed Him stood for...freedom of choice; Satan stood for...coercion and force...And one of Lucifer's primary strategies has been to restrict our agency through the power of earthly governments." p. 3
"Freedom as we know it has been experienced by less than one percent of the human family." p. 4
"If we accept the premise that human rights are granted by government, then we must be willing to accept the corollary that they can be denied by government." p. 6
"Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws.On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place." - Frederic Bastiat p. 6
"Every true American and true friend of liberty should love our inspired Constitution.Its creation was a miracle." p. 11
"The Constitution of the United States is a glorious standard and is founded on the wisdom of God.It is a heavenly banner." - Joseph Smith p. 16
Those are just a few of the quotes.There was wisdom on every page.Definitely worth the read.
