"All of the factual information collected here is intended as a tool to help Americans rediscover their wonderful heritage; to reintroduce them to the preeminent men and women who had the courage, intelligence, wisdom, and foresight to look to God for guidance in putting together our foundational documents and our systems of government and commerce. Convincing evidence is abundant that our laws, customs, ethics, and moral codes were based upon precepts of the Judeo/Christian Bible and that the overwhelming majority of those involved in the discovery and founding of the United States of America were Christians on a Christian mission. That they fully expected this country to be governed according to those precepts is made clear in their speeches and voluminous writings."-- p. xi-xii.
