So Help Me God
- Book Summary
"This book is a must-read in order to understand how judicial
supremacists have denied our inalienable right to acknowledge God."
-- Phyllis Schlafly, Founder, Eagle Forum
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Broadman & Holman Publishers is pleased to
announce the release of former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy S.
Moore's So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the
Battle for Religious Freedom.
Moore's unwavering stand against the removal of the Ten Commandments
monument from Alabama's state Judicial Building rotunda, which resulted in
his removal from the highest judicial office in Alabama, received
international attention. Moore, who has filed amicus briefs in the two
upcoming Ten Commandments cases before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 2,
2005, has said that one must acknowledge God to understand both the
Alabama and United States Constitutions, a topic he explores in his
upcoming Broadman & Holman release.
Kenneth H. Stephens, president of Broadman & Holman, said, "The
growing controversy over the issues of religious freedom and freedom of
speech, and the specific incident of the ruling to remove the Ten
Commandments monument from the Alabama state courthouse, is a topic of
concern for all Americans. Chief Justice Moore is uniquely qualified to
present the compelling Judeo-Christian views of our founding fathers on
the subject, backed by his firsthand experience and vast knowledge of the
legal foundations of our country."
Stephens continues, "It is an honor for me to be associated with the
publication of So Help Me God, by Chief Justice Roy Moore. As a brilliant
jurist, Moore takes on some of the most controversial issues of our day
and forces the question, "can the state acknowledge God?" His solid
arguments, based firmly on both American history and Constitutional law,
will inform both those who agree and those who do not share his views. So
Help Me God will clarify issues for both sides of the debate.
"As a graduate of West Point and a combat veteran, Chief Justice
Moore has demonstrated his character as a true patriot and defender of
liberty. By taking a stand, at considerable personal cost and sacrifice,
on the issue of the state's acknowledgement of God, he has demonstrated
his faith as a devout Christian as well as faithfulness as a public
servant to the intent and guarantees of our Constitution," Stephens said.
On his decision to publish So Help Me God, Moore said, "It is time
that the American people awake to the true meaning of separation of church
and state and our unique relationship to God as a Nation. No longer can we
afford to sit quietly by while the A.C.L.U. and others take away our right
to publicly acknowledge God secured by the First Amendment to the United
"As the Chief Justice has traveled around the country speaking on
this issue," said Wes Yoder, president of Ambassador Speakers Bureau,
literary representation for Moore, "I have been amazed at how many people
do not know the real story of his case. The book and the Chief Justice's
public forums will help Americans understand the changes needed in our
country. So Help Me God will be an important contribution to the public
Broadman & Holman plans a national publicity campaign in conjunction
with the March book release. The publisher has successfully published New
York Times bestsellers Payne Stewart: The Authorized Biography, Against
All Odds: My Story by Chuck Norris, along with the novels Mission
Compromised and The Jericho Sanction by Oliver North.
