520    Eric Metaxas offers a thrilling review of America's 
       uniqueness, and a sobering reminder that America's 
       greatness cannot continue unless people truly understand 
       what their founding fathers meant for them to be. The book
       includes a stirring call-to-action for every American to 
       understand the ideals behind the 'noble experiment in 
       ordered liberty' that is America. It also paints a vivid 
       picture of the tremendous fragility of that experiment and
       explains why that fragility has been dangerously forgotten
       - and in doing so it lays out our own responsibility to 
       live those ideals and carry on those freedoms. Metaxas 
       believes America is not a nation bounded by ethnic 
       identity or geography, but rather by a radical and 
       unprecedented idea, based upon liberty and freedom
