Have we been missing the most important lessons from the Pilgrims all along? What if what happened to the Pilgrims before they ever set sail on the Mayflower is happening in America today? A direct descendant of the Mayflower, Nate Grasz uses the story of the Pilgrims to illustrate how the hostile actions of the U.S. government and modern culture seek to undermine religious liberty, and why that is dangerous for all. "Religious liberty has never not been under assault, either by one creed seeking to exterminate all others, or by forces of secular absolutism, or in this age, by both. Every age needs new voices and new champions of the "first freedom," and Nate Grasz is one of those. In his eloquently and closely argued appeal for a renewal of commitment to religious liberty, Grasz lays down a marker for another generation of religious freedom defenders to follow." -Hugh Hewitt, law professor, host of a nationally syndicated radio talk show "An eye-opening, at times shocking, look at how far we have strayed from the religious freedom that set America on the path to greatness. It is a blow to the Left's monopoly of politically-correct intimidation of Christians. A timely and timeless read." -Nick Adams, Founder and Director of Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG), media commentator, and best-selling author "Nate Grasz is an eloquent and fearless new voice from the millennial generation, summoning us back to the fundamental freedom of them all, religious liberty. If you believe as I do that America must remain a nation under God if she is to remain a nation at all, you must read this wakeup call for faithful patriots to act before it's too late." -John Andrews, Founder of the Centennial Institute, former Colorado Senate President "The Pilgrims came to America to be free. They were determined to live in a place where their freedom of religion would not be at risk or be subject to the whims or preferences of government authorities. These admirable people have inspired generation after generation of those "yearning to breathe free." But now, as Nate Grasz eloquently points out, the government is constantly hectoring Americans to surrender their religious liberty rights. This book is a call to action by an outstanding young author who writes knowledgeably and with passion about the country he loves and the religious freedom he cherishes." -Bill Armstrong, President of Colorado Christian University, former U.S. Senator
