The Theme is Freedom could have easily been titled "Everything You Were Ever Taught Was Wrong." Author M. Stanton Evans challenges nearly every concept most of us have learned in history classes from elementary school to college.
The Theme is Freedom presents a new reading of the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence, the constitutional founding, and the religious clauses of the First Amendment. Evans draws the conclusion that our liberties have always been dependent of the religious traditions of the West - directly contrary to accepted theory.
On every salient issue, The Theme is Freedom stands conventional wisdom on its head. It will disturb some, encourage others, inform many, and above all, provide a view of American political history that liberals and conservatives alike will find provocative and surprising.

Evans provides an air tight case, what we think we know about our founding - is purely propaganda and based on myth and legend. The truth about the founding is noble and biblical - not an enlightenment sewer like the French or the Russian Revolution's, Mao's China or the NWO.
His rendering is good in its inflection and rhythm. His voice is ill matched to the subject matter. His throaty and smoky voice does not match the intellectual foundation of the work. Overall, it was distracting at first, but is still very much worth listening to.
I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking truth about the Founders and the founding of our Constitutional Republic. It may not be too late?
