National Review;5/27/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 20, p615
The article discusses the uncertainties that have weakened the spirit of the Americans in the 20th century. The major ambiguities have come to decline the historical relationship between Christianity and the spirit of the United States. Success has only come to the civilization of the Americans in the fields of education, law, public morality, medical ethics and sociological developments when the wall between the church and the state has been broken.
