“Ben’s course equips Americans with the principles and mechanics of America’s form of government, allowing individuals to be confident in how to steward our nation for the next generation. It’s a must read! And I highly recommend it for teaching the next generation.” -Heather Hall, Homeschool Mom of 10

Principles of American Government is a timeless course in the guiding principles that form the bedrock of the Constitution of the United States of America. Through this book, nationally recognized author and teacher Ben Gilmore, instructs today’s Americans in the Biblical and governmental principles established at the founding of our nation. Studying these ideas will illuminate modern day issues and events for Americans, and equip them with the skills to reason well in order to restore the liberty and unity that our Founding Fathers had in mind.

It’s recommended for high school to adult.
