America's Godly Heritage with David Barton
David Barton is the Founder and President of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America's forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on our moral, religious and constitutional heritage.
WallBuilders is a name taken from the Old Testament writings of Nehemiah, who led a grassroots movement to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore its strength and honor. In the same way, WallBuilders seeks to energize the grassroots today to become involved in strengthening their communities, states, and nation.
Mr. Barton is the author of numerous bestselling books, with the subjects being drawn largely from his massive library of tens of thousands of original writings from the Founding Era. He also addresses well over 400 groups each year.
His exhaustive research has rendered him an expert in historical and constitutional issues and he serves as a consultant to state and federal legislators, has participated in several cases at the Supreme Court, was involved in the development of the History/Social Studies standards for states such as Texas and California, and has helped produce history textbooks now used in schools across the nation.
Mr. Barton was named by Time magazine as one of America's 25 most influential evangelicals and has received numerous national and international awards, including Who’s Who in Education and DAR's highest award, the George Washington Honor Medal. His work in media has merited several Angel Awards, Telly Awards, and the Dove Foundation Seal of Approval.
He and his wife Cheryl have three grown children and reside in Aledo, Texas.
"Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it." Psalm 127:1
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. …
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
John Adams, Second President
