Hillsdale College began it’s Constitution 201 course, “The Progressive Rejection of the Founding and the Rise of Bureaucratic Depotism” course on Sept. 4. If you haven’t yet signed up for the course, I encourage you to do so immediately. It will make the most sense if you’ve already taken Constitution 101, but even if you haven’t, this course will still help you understand the current state of our government and where it’s likely to go if Obama wins a second term.
You may also find a recent podcast at Al Mohler’s site interesting. It consists of a conversation with historian Gregg Frazer discussing his new book, The Religious Beliefs of America’s Founders: Reason, Revelation, Revolution. It’s important that Christians truly understand the beliefs of the founders so that we don’t misrepresent them or overstate our case that America was founded as a Christian nation. You might be surprised at what Frazer discovered as he researched his book. If you’d like to read the writings of the founders for yourself, check out the University of Virginia’s free online collection.
