This book has become my most favorite book I have ever read. It is just the kind of book Ive been looking for all my life. I will give you an overview of the back page and it says it all. Quote:
On June 25, 1962 , The Supreme Court first struck down school prayer by prohibiting students from using this simple invocation:" ALMIGHTY GOD, WE ACKNOWLEDGE OUR DEPENDENCE UPON THEE, AND BEG THY BLESSING UON US, OUR PARENTS, OUR TEACHER, AND OUR COUNTRY." Following this case, the Court began methodically expelling other religious principles; the effect have been evident. Teen pregnancies skyrocketed, Divorce has become all to common place, SAT scores have fallen drastically, Violent crime is sweeping like the black plague epidemic through our society. Indeed this book proves that since the Supreme Courts decision our country is worse off and the statistic are in this book from reliable and documentable sources to back it up. Maybe America we should throw off these activist judges and put back prayer in the school systems. I guarantee your jaws will drop no matter your faith or no faith at all after reading this most excellent book. I give it a 10.

Written in 1988 but the ideas are still relevant.
