Each of the first 4 volumes contains 365 essays. Later volumes have fewer. Essays get longer as the issue get deeper. Rolwing examines nearly all of the major writers on our Basic Charter, most of whom , being Americans and liberals, repudiate it. He focuses on their manifold broadsides and rejections, reveals their multiple distortions and misunderstandings, rebukes their self-contradictions and inconsistencies, and pities their general Theo-phobia. He argues that while America was founded almost completely by Protestants (the only two so-called Deists were not that at all), what was founded was formally only a philosophical product, not a faith-based or Christian one, although the Philosophy used had been more Catholic than Protestant. Rolwing makes a great deal of American history, law, ethics, politics, philosophy, and religion easily accessible to the general public or average reader. Read any of these books and you will clap your hands that you are American. Certainly the Declaration is worth many an hour explaining and defending it. Mr. Rolwing seeks to make the problems brought up about the documents capable of being understood by both scholar and ordinary citizen Fr. James Schall, SJ
