Toward A More Perfect Union
In his new book, Toward a More Perfect Union: The Moral and Cultural Case for Teaching the Great American Story, Timothy S. Goeglein responds to the grave reality that generations of American students have been taught that the United States is not an exceptional but an abysmal country. This state of affairs has tragically contributed to a “fragmented America – child vs. parent, young vs. old, rich vs. poor, race vs. race, etc., with each looking out for their self-interests, rather than the greater interest of others and the nation.”
Goeglein argues that the solution lies in reclaiming and celebrating the American story. In Toward a More Perfect Union, Goeglein aims to deepen readers’ understanding and appreciation of America’s founding principles, including religious freedom, and to sharpen their ability to communicate these principles to others.
Join RFI Monday, February 13 at 12PM EST for a book launch event featuring a presentation and discussion led by Goeglein.
