Forward to Freedom - eBook
Dr. Combee delivers a fast-paced, informative, and inspiring account of the origins of the American Constitution, as well as what inspired the Founding Fathers to create and implement this world-changing document and its resulting form of government.
Forward To Freedom differs decisively from other works written on the Constitution and its historical background.
• It goes beyond examining America's colonial and revolutionary period—even our English political and legal heritage. It also traces the influence of political ideas reaching back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. ...and even earlier!
• It allows us to more understand the minds of the Founding Fathers by presenting America's history not as a meaningless mass of facts but as a process under the superintendence of Divine Providence. The Founding Fathers often spoke of Divine Providence and believed that God had entrusted them with the opportunity to not only establish free government in America but also to advance the future of freedom for all mankind.

A Welcome Positive Note for America in the Current Atmosphere of Slash and Burn Analysis

Enlightening and Educational
I learned here many details regarding the centuries long evolution of the concept of man's unalienable right to freedom. Confirms my belief that a government's role is to be more of a referee than a director. —CedarPhil
This Book is Amazing!
Until now, I did not understand the purpose of the Federalist Papers, and Dr. Combee explains this and more so clearly. I would have liked to have studied this book 50 years ago when I was in high school. I am glad to have read it now. Forward To Freedom should be required reading for each and every of our U. S. senators and representatives. —Fred Hinker
The author clearly explains the surprising (to me) origins of the US Constitution. He explains beautifully the history and process that led the Founding Fathers to the development of this incredible never-before-conceived recipe for governance without tyranny. As a naturalized citizen of the United States, I loved it! —M. Niland
