The Founders' Key

"The Founders' Key' by Larry P. Arnin is a book about the two most important documents in American history - the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Arnin makes the case for that these two documents have been "divorced" over the years, with Americans, historians, and even politicians picking and choosing which values are relevant and discarding those that they believed to be outdated or out of line with their own personal mantra. This book gives a short crash course on both the Declaration and the Constitution, which makes it easy to follow and understand even if you aren't a history buff. Arnin makes a good argument for uniting these two documents as one whole document, thereby ensuring entire freedoms for all. I thought this book was good, and made some very valid points. I would recommend this to anyone who has any interest in history or politics. I would give it a 4/5.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the BookSneeze program from Thomas Nelson publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.
