Worldview Guides

"In a day when most anything can be rendered disposable, Americans are not accustomed to keeping things that remind them of times of darkness, sadness, or failure. We do not keep the nameplate from the job where we were fired. We do not keep the bad report card or the paper that got an F." -From Meador's Worldview Guide

Look Inside the Book

"Nationally, we do not build monuments to commemorate our nation’s greatest failures. There is no Richard Nixon Memorial in Washington, nor is there a pillar to commemorate the Great Depression erected anywhere near Wall Street, though one can’t help wondering if things might have played out differently in 2008 if there were. In America we forget the bad and try to remember the positive. We are the consummate optimists. This idea of a negative memorial, something we keep that serves as a warning to us of the dire consequences of falling into sin, is perhaps a useful starting place for considering Frederick Douglass’s remarkable Narrative. If we are to understand both the good and the bad in America, there may be no better text to begin with than with this book." -From Jake Meador's guide

I would love to review this once I receive it however this book, as well as the rest of my order, has been stuck “in transit” for almost a month.

Would definitely buy again. I wanted my children to learn 2 things. 1) that the BLM movement is based on falsehoods. Frederick Douglas was born a slave, escaped, taught himself to read, and rose to an important job position in national government. Your beginnings don’t have to determine your end and neither does your families history.
2) The hypocrisy often found in a church does not mean Christ is wrong, just that the people are wrong and it takes brave men to call this out into the light. I highly recommend this book.
