The Legal Basis for a Moral Constitution: A Guide for Christians to Understand America’s Constitutional Crisis by Jenna Ellis, Esq.

Tracing back to America’s founding legal documents, the author observes that the Founding Fathers of America were themselves lawyers and viewed legitimate authority in a biblical sense and laid the foundation of America through God’s unchanging law. She shows how the Founders declared that the only proper role of government is to preserve and protect the unalienable rights given to every human being by God.

In The Legal Basis for a Moral Constitution, constitutional law attorney Jenna Ellis posits that America is in a constitutional and cultural crisis. Author Ellis discusses the moral origins of the U.S. Constitution and presents an argument for biblical morality through the lens of the Founding Documents as legal documents. Ellis shows how the Supreme Court has consistently undermined the moral basis of constitutional philosophy over the past sixty years, and argues that America’s constitutional crisis was further aggravated by the 2015 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court regarding same-sex marriage in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. Moreover, she argues that the interpretation of the U.S. Constitution has changed into a secular humanist worldview, shifting dramatically from its original intent of a Christian worldview based on objective morality.

Ellis challenges Christians to reclaim the objective, biblical, and moral perspective of law provided for by the Founders and advocate for biblical morality in the U.S. Constitution. Specifically, Ellis encourages utilizing the Founders’ legal mechanism they provided for in Article V of the U.S. Constitution to return American government to its biblical moral origins and call for a Convention of the States.

Ellis’s book will be on display at the London Book Fair 2016 from April 12 to 14 in Olympia, London.
