Has a unique perspective about the principles that inspired this country's origins. I remember learning about the different symbols that were created in Washington D.C. by our founding fathers in my history class in college, so it was a fun reminder while watching this movie.
If you are deeply disturbed by where our government has taken us and want to help your children and others understand how the Book of Mormon both foretold and supports our founding in America, you must have this video. Every home, not just every LDS home, but EVERY home must have this video.
I have eyes, but did not see... this point of view. This is definitely an eye opening experience. A must see!!!
Many times passages in the Book of Mormon are read and looked over thinking that they are not significant. This work is unique in that it goes through these passages and shows how they truly parallel our day. You will walk away with a stronger testimony of the Book of Mormon and knowing that the prophets did see our day. From the many parallels outlined in this DVD you will surely gain some new insight into the Book of Mormon.
I feel like this documentary is a must have. It makes you remember the role men that believed in God and God had in the founding of this country. The important role of deity in governing our country and keeping our freedoms.It also motivate you to research and find out why these facts are being wiped from our history. It really leaves you thinking.
In a day when we are greatly concerned about what’s going on in our government, this DVD sheds light on the fact that the Book of Mormon was written for our day, and has the answer to the kind of government that is "divinely sanctioned." It illustrates the amazing similarities of the inspired government on this land, as explained in The Book of Mormon, to our Constitutional government, and what we can learn from them. The video also points out the fore warnings contained in The Book of Mormon which apply to our day in regard to our government. I feel that this DVD covers so many critical points for all Americans that it should be watched over and over again.
Wonderful DVD to learn about our government, principles of freedom & the Book of Mormon. I really enjoyed these & learned so much! Kind of like "Monumental" for LDS. These are a must watch & I'm planning to get copies for all my friends & family!
