Her conservative views do not, however, fit what should be the stereotype she represents. The values on which the country were built have eroded, liberty is as oppressed as it was when ...

This book tackles the issues of God's people and their responsibility of prayer. Swain's polarizing political views intrigued me. Though a tough read, this book causes people, not just believers, ...

On 6/11 Kelley wrote: A highly engaging book, Carol Swain's Be the People offered a unique perspective to us as citizens of the United States. She takes the time to overview her perspective and the background from which she comes from, detailing her journey to today. Rather than avoiding the 'harder' topics, she engages them ...

On 6/9 Cari Ray wrote: Dr. Swain’s approach, to speak directly without tiptoeing through he facts with political correctness, is refreshing. Her personal history allows her to stand her ground and withstand any claims of racism or bigotry. “The founders were certain that ‘piety and public virtue’ would help their new ...

On 5/22 Rhe Christine wrote: I gotta say, this was a fantastic book. It got me all riled up, and that's a good sign. It was a rare perspective from someone with her background. Because everything inside me would have guessed that she's the opposite. Now I know that might not be the most PC thing to say, but lets be real, I'm ... A wonderful book from a unique perspective

On 4/2 Ritsumei wrote: Be the People is broken into two parts: Part one lays out some of the threats to freedom, as well as some of the quiet losses of freedom we face in America today. Part two is a call to action in several different areas. I'd have to say that my feelings about the book are decidedly mixed. For much of ... Book Review: Be the People
