Whatever the causes, and they are varied, many a youth and also adult wanders through an abyss, sometimes compounded by his own decisions, often insulating himself against any light which might be available to him. For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, and hearts willing to understand, Stand Fast by Our Constitution holds many answers. As early as World War I, J. Reuben Clark, Jr. saw, and began to raise a warning voice against, influences in this country and abroad which he thought were threats to the integrity of the Constitution. As pertinent as were the contents of this book at the time each segment was prepared, they are even more timely today, to alert those who will of the critical political fundamentals built into the inspired Constitution. The events which have unfolded as the decades of this century have passed loudly attest to the wisdom and prophetic insight of J. Reuben Clark, Jr. as he warned of the consequences of apostatizing from those cherished Constitutional principles. This book is an eloquent statement of our historical foundations and a fervent and reasoned appeal, grounded in the inspiration of heaven, that America as a nation return to those principles which made her great, and will once again make her a great moral force in the world and make it possible for her to achieve her divine destiny.
