What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Strong America Sample

What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Strong America Sample

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,419 |Likes:
Published by Zondervan
We know what works based on experience: The past and common sense. “Don’t touch that stove, honey, or you will get burned.” Why must we constantly re-fight the same battles over and over?
Our politics and even our spiritual lives too often resemble the film “Groundhog Day” in which actor Bill Murray wakes up and repeats the same event again and again and nothing ever changes, as in present-day Washington. Why don’t we consult the past and common sense in order to see that what others discovered still works.
In What Works, author Cal Thomas looks backward to see what the past can teach us about political, economic, relational, and spiritual issues that we’d like solutions for today.
