About the Book

America is in trouble. Out of control spending! Massive debt! Political ineptness! Constitutional indifference! Corporate greed! Union corruption! Moral chaos! Biblical faith under attack! Militant Islam! Fifth column foes within and powerful enemies without! National weakness from top to bottom! Our very survival is at stake. Is there a way out or is it too late? Our founding Fathers would be appalled, but not surprised, at the depth to which our once legitimately proud nation has plunged. Understanding the biblical view of fallen human nature they built a cultural foundation based on Judeo-Christian Law and values unknown in the world before or since. But as brilliant as they were they could not win the battle to keep the foundation intact for posterity. They charged each generation with that. Restoring Cultural Foundations: A Wake Up Call to America shows through a study of the Ten Commandments that a return to the Judeo-Christian principles on which the Founders built our nation is imperative for an orderly society and lasting liberty. Departing from God’s ways, they believed, courted certain disaster. Written for families, businesses and churches the author lays out ways our nation can return to our foundation and regain our lost dignity, security and well-being.

About the Author

James Tasker is a priest in the Anglican Church in North America serving churches in New York and Ohio. He earned a BS in Biblical Education from Columbia Bible College, a Master of Divinity from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary and a Doctor Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. Jim gave his life to Christ at a Billy Graham Crusade in his home town of Adelaide, South Australia. Shortly thereafter he moved to Melbourne to work at The Age newspaper. Desiring further adventure he took a position with Namasu, a Lutheran Mission sponsored business, in Banz, New Guinea, training New Guineans in business. While there he received a call to further his education in the USA. Jim’s love for his adopted country, his concern as he watches it rapidly decline as it moves away from the cultural moorings that the Founders carefully laid, and love for the Lord, are the inspiration for Restoring Cultural Foundations: A Wake Up Call to America. He lives with his wife Rose-Marie, an intercessor with the world wide Anglican Communion, in Aurora, Ohio. They are blessed to be in close proximity to all of their 6 children and 13 grandchildren and enjoy their little dog, Daisy.
