“Here is one antidote to the historical amnesia of modern times, regarding one of the greatest men of our past… Read of him, learn, pass it on.”
~ Bill Potter, historian
“…a welcome opportunity to remind the rising generation of the great story of the faith in the past that laid the foundations for our liberty in the present.”
~ from the Foreword by George Grant
The teaching of history is a modern battleground. No longer content to rewrite history, today’s revolutionaries want yesterday’s heroes erased. Why? A people cut off from their history are a people cut off at their roots, making them easy prey for the refashioning of society to the revolutionaries’ liking.
Will the Father of our Country, George Washington, be remembered as a Christian hero, or thrown out like a tattered shoe and be forgotten forever? Will future generations recall the Providential protection of Washington in battle? Will they learn of his courage and humility? George Washington: A Life Lived for God and Country is actually two volumes in one. Book one examines the writings, speeches, and first-hand accounts of Washington’s actions to learn of his deeplyheld
religious convictions. Good works do not make one a Christian. Yet, Christ Himself said that a tree is known by its fruit, and this book lays out Washington’s spiritual fruit for all to examine. Book two is a fast-paced, adventure-filled biography of Washington, full of thrilling exploits, daring escapes, betrayal, and remarkable Providences, all in his devoted service to his country.
May this book serve to be an inspiration to all who–like Washington–face innumerable obstacles to the preservation of liberty.
