Welcome To Cross Publications
This book by Lester M. Haddad MD MA introduces the history of Christianity, beginning with Jesus Christ our Savior, the development of Western Christian civilization, through the Christian foundation of our Nation, to our modern world. Jesus Christ teaches us to love God and our neighbor as ourselves. He taught us the Golden Rule in the Sermon on the Mount: "In everything do to others as you would have them do to you" (Matthew 7:12).
Religious Freedom is the hallmark of our Nation, the United States of America. Freedom from religious persecution and the lure of economic gain were the primary reasons for migration to America. Our Biblical heritage is apparent in our first settlers in search of religious freedom, as well as early American writings during the formation of our Republic.
The book concludes with a message of hope and a call for peace in our modern times.

This book presents the Gospel message of Jesus Christ through Scripture and the Tradition of the Church, and conveys how that Gospel significantly impacted the formation of Western Civilization and especially that of the United States of America. The author illustrates biblical values such as respect for life, freedom of conscience, and the dignity of each human being. Dr. Haddad presents the argument that the Bible provides a solid basis of religious freedom not only in the USA but in all cultures. Such a view of the freedom of religion was an essential principle to our Founding Fathers and is the hallmark of this Nation.
- Stephen F. Miletic, Ph.D, Professor of Scripture, Franciscan University, Steubenville, Ohio
There is no authority except from God, and those authorities that exist have been instituted by God (Romans 13:1).
Dr. Haddad has written a concise history of the Catholic Church and her profound historical influence on the world and the foundation of this country. As envisioned by our Founding Fathers and their Christian heritage, America must be one nation under God or it will not survive as one nation. Religious freedom comes from God Himself and no government has the authority to undermine that right. A very timely literary work!"

"The book spreads the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His message of love and peace.
The author supports traditional marriage and the right to life."
- Father Rudy Roxas, Chaplain, St. Joseph's Hospital, Savannah, Georgia
The author sketches in broad strokes the import of the person, life, death, and teaching of Jesus Christ and the formation of the Church He established for the development of Western Civilization. He holds the reader's attention by recounting in fine detail key moments in history that trace the development of Christianity in Europe and its migration to the Americas in the hearts of faith filled and hopeful men and women seeking freedom so as to form the backbone of culture and life here. He recounts a handful of landmark events in the Americas, such as the founding of the United States as a nation perilously and weakly situated among the European powers that still clamored for control of the New World, the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement, and the cultural and religious sea change in Latin and South America following the Marian apparition of Guadalupe. In God We Trust is interesting reading, informative, and guaranteed to inspire thoughtful re-examination of political, social, and religious ideas once taken for granted.
