About the Book"If the Founding Fathers surveyed our nation today and together composed a single speech to America, what would they say? The prologue begins to answer that question as it chronicles a current-day reunion of America's Founding Fathers at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Through a stroke of Providence, the Founders have assembled once again to take up their pen and save the country they love. Their resulting work, THE FOUNDERS' SPEECH TO A NATION IN CRISIS, is a tapestry in ten chapters of the Founders' words woven into a seamless and powerful speech to America. Author Steven Rabb meticulously crafts a one-of-a-kind book that will leave readers stunned at the relevance of the Founders' words to the very threats to liberty that Americans face today. Taken directly from the Founders' letters and documents, this book is nothing less than a stand-and-cheer celebration of America's founding ethos and principles, a much need primer on the Constitution, a caution on human nature and government, voice for economic freedom, a clarion call to defend religious liberty, and a rallying cry for every patriot to reclaim their country, once again, from the outstretched arms of tyranny!"--Back cover

"The Founders' Speech to a Nation in Crisis" is a tapestry of the Founders' own words written in ten chapters and woven into a single, powerful speech and call to action for every American. The first few chapters remind readers of the God-given rights of man, along with the virtues and duties required in a people who seek to retain them.

As one reviewer stated: "I am a humble guy. A high school educator. A craftsman. A successful small business operator. Certainly not a scholar. Your book made my heart leap with excitement. We as a nation have fallen so far, but this gives me hope we can turn this immense vessel around. So glad this came across my radar. So many of my friends and fellow believers are going to have their own copy arriving very soon! After-dinner discussions this Thanksgiving? Yes sir, your book."

My dream is to get the Founder's Bible in every American's home and know I want to add this book to it as well!"
