Another Very Interesting Book

I read another very interesting book today:  America – To Pray? or Not To Pray?  By David Barton.  Whether you agree with what David Barton reveals in this very interesting and somewhat shocking book, it’s worth the read.    The basic idea of the book is what happened (and is still happening) in America when religious principles were separated from public affairs.  It is a Christian book that uses a boatload of government statistics from the Center for Disease Control, the US Department of Justice – FBI, The Department of Health and Human Services, the Census Bureau, and from the College Entrance Exam Board, etc.   I was amazed by the trends revealed in this book.  It also reveals the Christian heritage that made our country and leader in so many areas in the past.  One of the most interesting ideas presented in the book is that there is a direct correlation between the removal of prayer in public schools in 1962 and the immediate and rapid decline of SAT scores since that time.   Again – it’s a very interesting read.
