Book Review: The Founders' Key

Dr. Larry Arnn has written a very timely work perhaps not knowing how much so. Freedom and liberty are eroding and, one by one, our rights held by the Constitution and Declaration are being voided.

In his work, The Founders' Key: The Demise and Natural Connection Between the Declaration and the Constitution and What We Risk by Losing It, Dr, Arnn draws the connections our founding documents have with each other. Dr. Arnn speaks to the current political climate and how our elected officials seek to separate the two documents as if they were written mutually exclusive and cancel each other out, thus concluding them moot to our modern society.

With history on his side as well as a wonderful defense of our founding fathers, Dr. Arnn puts these false notions to rest that our Declaration and Constitution have run their course. Dr. Arnn decimates the idea that we as a modern society need new and more in-depth documents that speak to a culture that has a "better" grasp of equality, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We are indeed in perilous times. Dr. Arnn may not have known that even today our second amendment rights are being attacked in the name of civility and of protection. For the first time in a long time, the Constitution may be "officially" overridden in order to strip away rights granted by the documents that have prevented the overreach of government powers.

Dr. Arnn has written a master work in The Founders' Key. If you would like some insight into the writings of our founders, I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book. The Founders' Key should be in the library of everyone wanting to know more about our nation's founding documents.

I received this book free from the Thomas Nelson Publisher's Booksneeze review program. I was not required to write a favorable review. I was only asked to be honest. The words are my own.
