Hurst shows how faith in God guided the Founders during every step of the process and compares and contrasts this history with the present state of American culture. In addition, he looks at the damaging effects of Islam on the United States and how it has brought about a decisive, polarizing effect on ideologies today.

Staring vacantly out the curtainless window as the drizzle outside turned into a steady downpour, he began to take stock of his life. As one who had experienced the exhilaration and rewards of professional sports, the perks and privileges of being a business executive, along with the prestige and position that such a lifestyle allows, he found his new, lowly station in life both unexpected and depressing. Or was it? To the worlds way of thinking, it seemed to be; it was one step away from living out on the street, under a bridge, fighting for survivala total unmitigated disaster.
Fortunately for Hurst, God had him exactly where he needed him and set him off on his personal journey of rediscovery.
