America on the Cusp of Gods Grace issues a rousing call for true, Bible-believing patriots to save America by reverting back to the august principles of our Founding Fathers.

Hurst provides a history of the beginning of America, from its seventeenth-century colonies based on religious freedom to the Revolutionary Wars stunning impact on the world and to the Constitutional Conventions innovative ideas. Hurst shows how faith in God guided the Founders during every step of the process and compares and contrasts this history with the present state of American culture. In addition, he looks at the damaging effects of Islam on the United States and how it has brought about a decisive, polarizing effect on ideologies today.
But Hurst doesnt stop with mere commentary and historical scholarship. Instead, he offers a blueprint for how God-loving American citizens begin a revival in their country. This includes a return to character, leadership, and integrity, plus a steady focus on Christ.
