Benjamin Franklin Morris' book has been out of print for more than 100 years. If you can find an original copy, it's only because you have looked in the deep recesses of university libraries where the volume is probably collecting dust on dimly lit library shelves. Organizations like the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State have done their best to ignore the content of the massive compilation of original source material found in this book. If Americans ever become aware of the content assembled by the author, the arguments for a secular founding of America will turn to dust. 


Reprinted for the first time in over 100 years in 2007, this book has already been through its eighth printing.  Don't miss out on the fantastic wealth of information this book has in store!  Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States could very well be responsible for rediscovering the truth of America's Christian foundation.

About the author:

Reverend Morris was a historian (1810-1867), son of the Honorable Thomas Morris who was a pioneer opponent of slavery and United States Senator from Ohio. A minister of the Congregational Church, Morris pastored churches in Indiana and Ohio, retiring from ministry when his health began failing. Moving to Washington D.C. with his family where one of his sons became the Assistant Librarian of the Congressional Library, Morris worked as a clerk in one of the Federal Government departments and actively helped the establishment of the Congregational Church in the city. During this time, Morris undertook the epic task of compiling the facts to produce his magnum opus, The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. For over a decade, he worked tirelessly on this project, out of a concern of the loss of our Christian heritage in civil government and the threat of de-Christianization he saw in our nation's civil government, law and public life - in 1864! 


Morris wrote:

"This volume is committed to the American people, in the firm assurance that the invaluable facts which it records will be grateful to every patriotic and pious heart. In it, as from the richest mines, has been brought out the pure gold of our history. Its treasures have been gathered and placed in this casket for the instruction and benefit of the present and future. We have a noble historic life; for our ancestors were the worthies of the world. We have a noble nation, full of the evidences of the moulding presence of Christian truth, and of the power and goodness of Divine wisdom in rearing up a Christian republic for all time. That this was the spirit and aim of the early founders of our institutions, the facts in this volume fully testify." 

"As the common manual of the people [The Christian Life and Character] should be in the hands of every individual in all our borders, and, if diligently perused and faithfully improved, who can tell but, under the blessing of God, it may become the morning star of the mightiest day of national regeneration the world has yet beheld." - Byron Sunderland (1819-1901), Chaplain to the Senate of the United States in the 37th Congress
