Book Review (Death of a Christian Nation)


REVIEWDeath of a Christian Nation


            Attorneys and Justices at the U.S. Supreme Court are typically dressed in black—the color of funerals.  Perhaps the Court's color scheme is appropriate.  America was founded on Christian principles and has a rich religious heritage.  But our "Christian nation" is terminally ill, and her funeral is imminent unless believers act quickly.


            Nearly 40 years ago, the Supreme Court enshrined the “fundamental right” of American women to kill their unborn children. Atheists across America attack our country’s religious heritage, trying to purge the public square of even the most benign religious symbols that do not compel anyone to do anything or believe anything—much less “establish a religion.”  LGBT activists aggressively try to redefine marriage and the American family—society’s basic building block—sometimes viciously attacking anyone who "discriminates" or refuses to facilitate the agenda.  What is going on? Are we about to bury our formerly Christian nation?  As a Christian attorney and citizen, Deborah Dewart became deeply concerned. That’s why she wrote Death of a Christian Nation—to help inform other believers, in English (not “legalese”), how we got here and how we can respond in a gracious, biblically faithful manner—showing others there is "equal protection" under the cross of Christ.   


            Deborah holds degrees in theology (Westminster Seminary, Escondido, CA) and law (Chapman School of Law, Orange, CA).  She is admitted to the bar in North Carolina, California, the U.S. Supreme Court, and five federal circuits.   She has written many friend-of-the-court briefs in the federal courts to protect our fundamental liberties. She writes on behalf of Justice and Freedom Fund, a nonprofit founded by James L. Hirsen, an author, law professor, and Fox News contributor.  You can find more information about her book, and order a copy, on the book’s website:
