In G-d We Trust asks the reader to take a good, hard look at ourselves as a country and where we are heading. It emphasizes the vision of the Founding Fathers which gave each American the chance to attain the fullest expression of their potential by building a society on truths of the Torah, specifically the seven commandments given to the descendants of Noah. It discusses trust and belief, self-concern, morality, freedom and tolerance, unity and differences, democracy, self-interest, children and education, parenting, children and crime, education and spirituality, America as a world leader and their relations to other countries, and the effects of individual action and change. It emphasizes that these ideals, when implemented according to Torah principles, are important aspects in which society can and should attain lasting progress and foster the coming of the Messiah. The essays in this book are drawn from selected talks in which an identification was made with the the historical tradition of ethical values and principles of the Noahide Code, which lie at the heart of American culture. The many examples and excerpts from stories are used to clearly illustrate the subjects at hand.
