Elementary Catechism on the United States Constitution
There have been many tributes to the Constitution but the highest tribute of all is the willingness of a person to take the time to study it.
The Constitution is an exciting charter for human freedom that establishes nearly 300 vested rights as they apply to various segments of the American society. Many people do not know the nature of these rights or how too protect them. This is why many of those rights have been eroded or lost.
This book is designed to revive a better understanding of America's great Charter of Liberty by using one of the oldest teaching methods ever invented - asking questions. It was used so extensively by the famous Greek philosopher, Socrates, that it is often referred to as the "Socratic method of teaching" -teaching by asking questions. For over one hundred years this book was the method used to teach America's youth to know and understand their Constitution. In 1831, when Alexis de Tocqueville came to America, he was amazed at how conversant the young people were with their charter of freedom. The Catechism was the vehicle to that learning.
