Rosman newest book is “A Christian Nation?: An examination of Christian nation theories and proofs.” (IVC Publishing, 2011) The book explores the objective evidence by the proponents of the Christian nation theories and examines each in terms of 1) does the proof exist, 2) is the proof being used within the context of the time and circumstances written, and 3) does it support the Christian nation theory?

Amazon Top 500 Reviewer J. Gomez said,

“A Christian Nation?” is a book that examines arguments for and against the notion of the United States being a Christian nation. David A. Rosman takes us on an educational ride of our founding documents as he provides compelling arguments for his conclusions.”

Dr. Swain is the author of “Be the People: A Call to Reclaim America’s Faith and Promise” (Thomas Nelson Press, 2011), is a frequent guest on Sean Hannity’s: Great American Panel on Fox News and appeared regularly on CNN’s Lou Dobbs Tonight. Be the People explores the biblical basis for the founding of our nation and government.

Hannity wrote,

“‘Be the People’ is a courageous analysis of today’s most pressing issues, exposing the deceptions by the cultural elite and urging ‘We the People’ to restore America’s faith and values.”

“Be the People” and “A Christian Nation?” are available as print or e-Books on

Dr. Swain is passionate about empowering others to confidently raise their conservative voices in the public square. Her education and experiences make her a credible and powerful force for change in today’s social and political climate where conservatives are intimidated to champion an often-unpopular message. She holds her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and her law degree from Yale University.
