The ACLU has not yet succeeded in removing In God We Trust from our money. When fanatical Muslims struck the Twin Towers on 9/11 in the name of Allah, almost the entire nation of America visibly and audibly turned to God. God Bless America may still be a prayer for some, but it has been a reality for America for centuries.
This book establishes the fact that America was conceived, birthed and nurtured in Christianity. The overpowering weight of evidence demonstrates that the Founding Fathers not only prayed to, and relied on God, but also gave thanks to God for His overarching providence and protection.
Many have dared to challenge America s undeniable Christian heritage. To do this they run to the Treaty of Tripoli for cover and they join the Supreme Court in hiding behind Jefferson s Wall. They point to the absence of God from the Constitution and even allude to the banning of religious tests by the Bill of Rights. This book acknowledges all such challenges and systematically demolishes them.
Interestingly enough, I have never heard any one challenge America s Christian heritage on the grounds that it caused the slavery of black people to flourish within its borders. And I agree. The fact is that the same God who blessed America, appropriately punished her for her involvement in the crime of slavery. How else could you explain that when fighting the British enemy in a legitimate War for Independence, only 25,000 Americans died. Yet when fighting the Civil War over uprooting the cancer of slavery, 600,000 Americans died at the hands of their own countrymen! And that was just the beginning of the price.
The 13th 14th & 15th Amendments were all post Civil War Amendments which in a machiavellian twist of poetic justice, snatched most of the freedoms that the Founding Fathers had constitutionally secured for the people of America and ceded them to the Federal Government. As a result of their involvement in slavery, Americans who fought and won their freedom from England and who protected their freedom from the Federal monster they created to protect them, became enslaved to the Federal Government immediately after losing the Civil War over slavery.
But even in the darkest days of America s criminal involvement in slavery, the Christian values of this nation continued to shine like a beacon. Not only were the majority of Americans always opposed to slavery, but the Founding Fathers constitutionally guaranteed that the Slave Trade be abolished by 1808. Harriet Beecher Stowe and leading anti-slavery Activists were all Americans and so were the brave Northerners who fought to end it. Despite slavery, America retains its Christian influence.
But despite millions of Christian lights shining from coast to coast in America, something has gone wrong. As a nation, and at great cost, America has turned her back on her Christian heritage. The Judiciary and especially the Supreme Court has hijacked power from the Executive and the Legislature and from the people, and through tyrannical legislations from the bench and with the help of the likes of the ACLU, have been redefining America. Today, under the guise of all-inclusivity and religious tolerance, America has officially renounced its allegiance to the God of the heavens and earth... the God of Washington, Franklin and Henry, Katrina, Gustav and Ike.
Put Him Back...America! is incisive, insightful, profound and intensive. It is a clarion call to Americans, and especially to confessed Christians in America to put God back into the public square and back into the center of life in America before this great nation implodes and be discarded on the scrap heap of history like all the great world powers before it.
Are you ready for the change?

Godfrey McAllister's interest in the United States of America dates back to 1979 when he first visited its shores. Since then, his professional life has repeatedly required him to interact with Americans at different levels. The result is that Godfrey has developed an abiding love and respect for the people of America. It is this love for Americans that has caused him great concern over the nation s rapid digression from the values on which it was founded and which made it great. Godfrey McAllister believes that it was God who laid it on his heart in 2004 to write the book, Put Him Back...America!
