A Constitution is Born by Norma Swanson and Barbara Aud A brief history of the Constitution of the United States of America, tracing the hand of God.
A Constitution is Born was written to be a clarion call, loud and clear, for renewed patriotism, a love for country and above all, a realization that our direction comes from God, not from man, and we are responsible to Him, our Maker. This brief history of the U.S. Constitution with relevant information is to be a sword of the Lord, piercing the heart and soul, invoking action to carry out His plan as He makes it known to us. Our continuing prayer is that this book will find a special place in the hearts of Americans and that they will read it to their children to provide insight and understanding as to what it means to be a free, courageous American with increased faith in our God who has brought us this far.
