Coming Home: Reclaiming America's Conservative Soul

Ted McAllister, Edward L. Gaylord Chair and associate professor of public policy at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, and co-author with Bruce Frohnen, professor of law at Ohio Northern  University College of Law, recently launched their new book Coming Home: Reclaiming America's Conservative Soul.

McAllister and Frohnen argue that Americans are a conservative people whose institutions, ways of life, and fundamental beliefs, have been under assault by a progressive elite for several generations. The result has been a kind of cultural destruction that has left a great many Americans "homeless"—lacking the sense of belonging and attachment that are the hallmarks of healthy societies and cultures.

This book is part of an effort to reclaim America by stressing our common story (history) and by reinvigorating the natural institutions like family and voluntary associations that connect us to one another and to our common purposes. Underneath it all is the call by the authors to reclaim our most basic national identity as self-governing people from those who have foisted on us an administrative state to replace our republic and who are seeking to use their cultural and social power to change who we are as a people—to transform us.

 

This book is currently the #1 new release in Natural Law on Amazon.
