NASHVILLE – The Ten Commandments are being stripped from public buildings across our country. So why are they still posted over the heads of our Supreme Court Justices every time they hold court? They are posted there, insists New York Times best-selling author Pat Robertson, because it's where they belong. His new book, The Ten Offenses: Reclaim the Blessings of the Ten Commandments, asserts that America was founded as a Christian nation and that recent efforts to deny or revise that fact are dangerous to our society.

Pat Robertson believes there is a battle raging for the soul of America. He writes that courts run amok, fueled by secular allies, are eroding America's spiritual foundations. As a consequence, the historic blessings and benefits of the Ten Commandments are being spun as a great offense to our religiously diverse culture. Nothing, insists the author and broadcaster, could be further from the truth.

"Religious pluralism thrives in America as a result of our Christian heritage, not in spite of it," says Pat Robertson, veteran broadcaster and best-selling author. In The Ten Offenses, Robertson calls Americans to reclaim their spiritual roots – to reaffirm the central role of God's fundamental laws – before it is too late.

Some of the controversial questions Robertson tackles in his new book include:

  • Was America really founded on Christian principles including The Ten Commandments?
  • Does being a "Christian nation" result in oppression or freedom for people of other faiths?
  • Why are some people so offended by The Ten Commandments now – since they have been posted in public places for more than two centuries?
  • Do the Ten Commandments have relevancy to current culture?
  • Why have Supreme Court judges ordered the removal of The Ten Commandments from public areas while they still have them posted in their own court?
  • If Supreme Court justices do not have the constitutional authority to remove Bible reading, prayer and the Ten Commandments from public life, why are Americans letting them do it?
  • What blessings will America forfeit by removing the Ten Commandments from our personal and public lives?

Byron Williamson, President and CEO of Integrity Publishers, believes Robertson's new book is both timely and needed. "Pat Robertson is offering a wake up call, supported by historical data and current headlines, which Americans need to hear. His sound research and reasoned call for action are vital reading for people everywhere."
