My first exposure to America’s Christian history was in 1974 at the third annual Plymouth Rock Foundation Seminar in Plymouth, Massachusetts.   I was kept in a state of shock throughout the seminar as I was introduced to the Providential view of history and the evidence of the Biblical foundations of our American Christian Republic. I learned of America’s founding from the original historical writings, historic monuments and other evidences of our country’s Christian heritage.   As a result of this introduction to America’s Christian History, our school Christian Heritage Academy has from its early beginning embraced the Biblical principles upon which the world’s first Christian Republic was founded.

               Later Mrs. Ruth Smith, President of the Pilgrim Institute, and Mr. Jim Rose, President of American Christian Institute, became my two primary teachers of the Biblical principles of American Christian history and government; and they are the primary teachers of this study guide. The Biblical view of government, the Providential view of history, and the Principles of America’s Christian history and government which I was taught by these two outstanding Master Teachers are carefully and powerfully reproduced in this study guide.

               These principles have been taught at Christian Heritage for the past thirty-eight years. I have found that this new guide Restoring America’s Biblical Foundations is excellent for presenting the founding principles of America’s Christian history and government. I have used the DVDs, Study Guide and Leader’s Guide personally in teaching new school personnel. As expected, the materials are excellent for the introduction of the concepts. I believe the material will be equally effective in small groups or the classroom.

               Not only my life, but the ministry of a highly respected Christian school has been impacted by the teaching of these principles. I strongly recommend this educational package.

    Through the acquiescence of parents and pastors, at the turn of the Twentieth Century, the progressive philosophy of history and government have come to dominate public and private institutions of education, until, today, Americans have known nothing else but the revised, Marxist interpretation of all history. Restoring America's Biblical Foundations produced by Pilgrim Institute presents essential, primary ideas with ease and clarity which will bless and benefit today's American Christian who is unfamiliar with the true history of America that one discovers in her original documents and the primary sources of her history.  The study guide, which accompanies the lecture series, challenges the viewer to reason Biblically and inspires him to pursue its practical implications in every area of life and living, of home, church and civil government in particular.  Restoring America's Biblical Foundations is a most excellent study to begin one's course toward thinking governmentally.

       Upon receiving your most recent publication of “Restoring America’s Biblical Foundations,” Mary and I went through each of the sessions and found it an excellent review. I believe it would be a tremendous blessing to people who have attended Pilgrim Institute seminars in the past.

     I also believe it would serve as a great introduction to the philosophy of the Principle Approach to restoring America’s Christian heritage, how to think governmentally, and the Biblical basis of our American Christian Republic. . . .

    Thank you for your dedication to the cause of restoring America’s Christian Heritage and all the effort that has gone into producing this most recent project.
