What is America becoming? Or, more importantly, what can she be if we reclaim a vision for the things that made her great in the first place?
In America the Beautiful, Dr. Ben Carson helps us learn from our past in order to chart a better course for our future.
From his personal ascent from inner-city poverty to international medical and humanitarian acclaim, Carson shares experiential insights that help us understand
… what is good about America
… where we have gone astray
… which fundamental beliefs have guided America from her founding into preeminence among nations
Written by a man who has experienced Americas best and worst firsthand, America the Beautiful is at once alarming, convicting, and inspiring. Youll gain new perspectives on our nations origins, our Judeo-Christian heritage, our educational system, capitalism versus socialism, our moral fabric, healthcare, and much more.
An incisive manifesto of the values that shaped Americas past and must shape her future, America the Beautiful calls us all to use our God-given talents to improve our lives, our communities, our nation, and our world.

Marge5 Stars Out Of 5America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation GreatJanuary 7, 2015MargeHave to confess I have not read the book as yet. I purchased it as a gift for my husband who absolutely couldn't put it down until he had finished it. He handed it to me the other day and said "this is a really good book, the guy needs to be president"!! So from that review, I'd say the book is excellent!

I love Carson's insight and logical conclusions. I also love how he non-apologetically interweaves his faith throughout the book.
Highly recommend it!
