    • Reclaiming the Republic: How Christians and Other Conservatives Can Win Back America

      Radical secularists have undermined the premise of the Founders to the detriment of our nation and its people. It s time to fight back. Reclaiming the Republic will show you how. While the election of Donald Trump as president may have slowed down the project of those who would continue to move America away from the laws of Nature and of Nature s God, the struggle is not over, and the next few elections may well prove decisive. This book shows Christians and all people of good will and traditional values how to use the levers of civil power to defeat anti-Christian and anti-Natural Law policies at all levels of government...and, what is more important, defeat the proponents of such policies before they gain access to those levers. Reclaiming the Republic pulls back the curtain on the structure of government so that motivated Christians can expose and defeat the work of secularists. Perhaps no person in the country is better qualified to write this book than Robert G. Delegate Bob Marshall. Having forgotten more than most Americans ever learned about our system of government, the thought of the Founders, state and local politics, and those aforementioned laws of Nature and of Nature s God as expressed politically, accompany Marshall as he takes readers on a crash course in Civics 101. Marshall is also uniquely qualified to write this book as he knows first-hand that the radical Left is pulling out all the stops to consolidate their gains and reverse their losses. After serving his neighbors for thirteen terms in the Virginia House of Delegates, he was defeated in 2017 by the first openly transgendered candidate to be seated in a US statehouse. His opponent received much outside help, both in terms of volunteers and out-of-state money. Why would a race for the Virginia House of Delegates attract such attention across the country? Again, the radical secularist Left knows what is at stake. Do you? Read this book, digest its lessons, share with your children and friends, and get involved. (learn more)

+  Psalm basics for Catholics (2 segments)

  • Description: For more than two thousand years, Christians have sung, chanted, and prayed the psalms, a practice of worship inherited from our Jewish ancestors in faith.

    • Stunned by Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic

      The Pope, devotion to Mary, confession ... just where are these topics in the Bible? Why does the Catholic Church seem to focus on so many things that aren't Scriptural? Or so thought former Protestant pastor John Bergsma. Stunned by Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic is an engaging examination of the things Dr. Bergsma once considered obstacles to ever becoming Catholic himself. Over an eighteen-month spiritual journey, Bergsma was stunned again and again by the biblical support he found for even the stickiest teachings of the Catholic Church. Weaving his personal story into clear explanations of Catholic teachings as found in Scripture, Dr. Bergsma explores seven key Catholic doctrines, including:

        • The Pope
        • Devotion to Mary
        • Confession
        • The Eucharist
        • The priesthood
        • Belief in the Bible alone
        • Salvation by faith alone theologies
      Stunned by Scripture will help Catholics understand, defend, and explain the biblical basis for the Faith and show them how the Bible solidly supports even the most frequently misunderstood Catholic teachings. (learn more)
