Overview

Chief Justice Roy Moore believes the state must acknowledge the moral principles on which America was founded and that it is not illegal to do so. While the separation of church and state may be a credible and legitimate tenet, it has been largely misconstrued and abused during the last forty years.

Moore was sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. His critics, both within conservative circles and without, have maintained that he violated the law by disobeying the order of a federal judge to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments. But Moore brilliantly argues that those who have ordered him to violate his oath have, in fact, broken the law.

So Help Me God will articulate why he believes elected and appointed government officials have the right and the obligation to acknowledge God as the foundation of American government and jurisprudence.

Editorial Reviews

His three-year battle to defend the public display of the Ten Commandments cost Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore cost him his seat on the bench but won him numerous supporters among conservatives and religious fundamentalists. In So Help Me God, the West Point graduate defends his stand and explains why those who ordered him to violate his oath have, in fact, broken the law.

Chief Justice Roy Moore's book So Help Me God is a fascinating story of a man who dared to stand up against judicial tyranny. Roy Moore shows us that all throughout our nation's history the right to acknowledge Almighty God as the Supreme Law Giver has been evident. More important than his own story, this book explains the background of the whole 'separation of Church and state' argument. Moore was removed from his position as chief justice because he stood by his oath to uphold the Constitution. Moore is a true illustration of how seriously every Christian leader should take his oath.

'SO HELP ME GOD' IS A VERY WELL WRITTION BOOK AND VERY HARD TO PUT DOWN. THE HONORABLE ROY MOORE PRESENTS EVIDENCE SHOWING THAT THIS IS A CHRISTIAN NATION AND WE SHOULD HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO DISPLAY THE 10 COMMANDMENTS IN PUBLIC AND IN THIS VERY MOVING BOOK HE PRESENTS SOME VERY HISTORTIC EVIDENCE TO PROVE BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT HE IS RIGHT. GET THIS BOOK FOR A FRIEND AND OR FAMILY MEMBER IT MAKES A GREAT GIFT. ITS A TRUE WAKE UP CALL.
