America is in the midst of a cultural and constitutional law crisis that began more than sixty years ago and was further exacerbated by the 2015 Supreme Court same-sex marriage decision. How did we become a culture that lacks objective morality and embraces secular ideas, hinging on the majority whim of nine justices? How do we get back to being a biblically moral, upright society and recognizing the U.S. Constitution as supreme law of the land?

In The Legal Basis for a Moral Constitution, Jenna Ellis makes a compelling case for the true roots of America's Founding Documents in objective morality and how our system of government is founded upon the Christian worldview and God's unchanging law, not a secular humanist worldview. She provides a unique perspective of the Founding Fathers as lawyers and how they understood the legitimate authority of biblical truth and appealed directly to God's law for the foundation of America.

Weaving together the legal history and underpinning worldview shifts in American culture, Ellis advocates how Christians must change the basic reasoning of our appeal and effectively engage our culture. Finally, she proposes the solution to reclaim objective, biblical morality in law that the Founders themselves provided for through Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

This book is for every Christian who seeks to understand the times and our constitutional and cultural crisis.

Review:

"Throughout, Ellis provides fascinating insights into what the Founders really meant--and what the Founding Documents should mean for us today."-Nancy Pearcey, author of 'Total Truth' and 'Finding Truth'

"Jenna Ellis has written a masterful book providing a foundation for the basic principle that all law is based in someone's morality. The question becomes, whose morality was intended by the Founders? This is an important question for America today..."-David Gibbs, III, president of National Center for Life & Liberty

"Jenna Ellis has provided an excellent, step-by-step overview of the Constitution's call for biblical morality, how court decisions have, over the past 60 years, eroded that call, and how we can effectively engage our system of government to renew within it the Judeo-Christian worldview our nation was founded upon."-Frank Peretti, Best-selling author of 'This Present Darkness' and 'The Oath'

"At a time in our nation where basic concepts of freedom and liberty are being re-imagined and re-defined, Jenna Ellis provides a timely and helpful exploration of 'why law and what law' against a rapidly changing cultural landscape.-Kerri Kupec, Legal Communications Director, Alliance Defending Freedom

"Well-written, easy to read, full of good information and explanation that the average American just does not know. This book will be a good reference for the Christian perspective of how our government works and where the flash points of conflict arise. I love the way Jenna Ellis keeps going back to worldview foundations."-Dr. William Brown, Senior Fellow for Worldview and Culture, The Colson Center for Christian Worldview
