A Review of “America the Strong”, by William J. Bennett and John Cribb

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.  Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.  This is good and pleases God our Savior,  who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. - 1 Timothy 2:1-4

We live in a culture that often dismisses and ridicules conservative values. By the time liberal professors, the news media, and Hollywood get through with them, many young Americans are convinced “conservative” means extremist and intolerant. It’s a distortion that endangers America’s future. Bill Bennett and coauthor John Cribb explain what conservatism really means, using five fundamental principles summarized by the word FLINT: Free enterprise, Limited government, Individual liberty, National defense, and Traditional values. America the Strong shows the next generation how these principles have made the United States a great nation and why they are worth preserving. It answers more than one hundred questions, from “Do conservatives hate the government?” to “What’s wrong with having an open border?” to “Why can’t rich people pay all the taxes?”

Discover a strong, clear conservative vision of America for the next generation.

This book is a treasure I stumbled upon! I knew it would be interesting, but it really strengthened my gratefulness for being an American. The country's history, as well as the principles it was established and built on, are the foundation for Conservative values that, despite what the media would have us believe, are still just as relevant today as they were 200 years ago.

This book is perfectly timed in our country today. Especially our young people are under attack, as are we all, for our Christianity and our Conservative standards. I loved that the authors framed this book in an easy-to-understand manner that answers common questions. What is the difference between different sorts of political ideologies? What is American Exceptionalism? Should we legalize marijuana? All of this and so much more is covered in this great book.

Take your time reading this book. It is a great reference and a great gift for anyone from teens to seniors. It can be purchased in these places (among others):
