Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States: Developed in the Official and Historical Annals of the Republic
G. W. Childs, 1864 - 831 頁
Rev. B.F. Morris's magnum opus, the Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States, published in 1864, is nearly impossible to find. The debate over America's Christian heritage ends with this book. Morris leaves no historical document unturned in discovering America's rich Christian heritage, and he accomplished all of his detailed research 140 years ago before there were computers! No other work compares to it. We've never seen an original copy of this massive work. A few years ago, a well-known conservative publishing company considered printing the imposing book. For undisclosed reasons, the publisher declined. Two factors probably contributed to the decision: the overtly Christian character of the material and the exorbitant cost that would go into its production. American Vision is the exclusive distributor of an expertly scanned copy all 831 pages and 26 chapters of Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. The format is PDF. If you like, the book can be printed in its entirety or one page at a time. The choice is yours.

第 514 頁 - Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct: and can it be that good policy does not equally enjoin it? It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and at no distant period, a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence.
