The words “one nation under God” have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance of the United States in 1954 and have caused a great deal of controversy.

Pastor Curry explains: “In the United States of America these four words – added to the pledge in 1954 – have become more than controversial. They have turned into fighting words. The two extremes of the spectrum are polar opposites – the one willing to do anything to remove the words and the other willing to do anything to prevent that from happening. And both are willing to spare no expense or experience to make themselves heard and seen.”

His latest book aims to explore important questions related to the controversial phrase, including its meaning, the responsibilities that come with it, and the biblical foundations for the concept of “a nation under God”.

The book focuses on the Book of Jeremiah as the foundational text for a nation which accepts the guidance of God as its ultimate guiding force.

Choosing the biblical story of Jeremiah was motivated by the unique mission God gave him. After years of Israelite rebellion, Jeremiah was assigned the difficult task of revealing the sins of the Israelites and calling them back to accepting God’s guidance and rule.

The book explores the teachings of the Book of Jeremiah and its relevance for the modern meaning of the “one nation under God” concept as applied to the United States.
