Readers who want to better understand the founding principles of America, as expressed in the words of the Founding Fathers, will love this book. In developing The Founders’ Speech to a Nation in Crisis, author Steven Rabb spent two years compiling the words of the Founding Fathers into narrative form, weaving their texts into a single powerful speech to America. His purpose was to give depth to the current conversation and ongoing debate about the founding ideals of our nation. In so doing, Steven has also created a single source of “best of” quotes from the Founding Fathers that will be read and reread for generations to come.In a work described as “the best single source for the understanding of America’s Founding,” and reviews such as, “This book nearly made me stand and cheer!” The Founders’ Speech offers a powerful read through the synergized writings of America’s Founding Fathers. Through their own words, Steven has demonstrated with amazing clarity the continued relevance of America’s founding ideals and their resonance for our nation today. Framing the work as a reunion between the Founders in contemporary America, Steven gives voice to their views on modern-day issues from religious liberty and the rule of law to freedom of speech and the continuing threat of tyranny. The Founders’ Speech to a Nation in Crisis is a rich tapestry of the Founders’ own words presented in ten chapters and woven into a single, powerful speech and call to action for every American. The first few chapters remind readers of the God-given rights of man, along with the virtues and duties required in a people who seek to retain them. Through the writings of George Washington, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and many of their contemporaries, the speech builds as the Founders caution against the threats to liberty from unbounded power and unrestrained majorities. The continued relevance of our Founders’ words – as revealed in this unique, meticulously crafted work – is a clarion call to defend our natural rights that will both stun readers and leave them celebrating America’s Founders. Here is what some of the reviewers are saying:”In their own words, the founders and other free thinkers perfectly predict the corrupt and increasingly authoritarian country we now live in. Even with a very detailed list of the possible ways we could destroy ourselves from within, we’ve managed to do it. We’ve sold our liberty for security and we shall have neither. Anyone who values free thought, free speech and inalienable rights needs this book. I plan to give it to my kids as a resource for discussion.””The unity of this book is powerful, but the most impressive aspect of the book is the fact that the figures who arose from the enlightenment saw precisely the kinds of challenges which we face today. Their views are familiar; we need an educated, religious and virtuous populace but we also need a brave populace, willing to fight to the death to preserve our precious liberty. We must have no illusions with regard to man’s fallen nature and be ever vigilant with regard to the need of checks and balances on power (as Montesquieu here reminds us). We must resist the assumed power of elites, Jefferson points out; the government works for us and not us for them. In some ways this is a sort of commonplace book or a vade mecum, a book of common (political) prayer, something to which we can and must return when we need to be reminded of the stakes, the wishes of liberty’s adversaries and how their siren song of socialism has brought death and oceans of blood. One hopes that it will be shared widely and that readers will attend to its collected wisdom.”
