In this small booklet, Dr. D. James Kennedy shares invaluable information on the “deeds and words” of three of America’s most important presidents and greatest statesmen: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.
As he says in the introduction, “Empires that forget their founding ultimately collapse,” and so Dr. Kennedy introduces us to two of America’s founders and to a third who led our nation through one of its darkest trials.
What should we know about the lives of these great men? What caused Major General Henry Lee to say about Washington after his death that he was, “First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen”? What did Thomas Jefferson truly think about Christianity and the relation between church and state? What drove Abraham Lincoln to keep the Ten Commandments to the point he was known as “Honest Abe”?
In the chapters, “The Faith of Washington,” “The Real Thomas Jefferson,” and “Was Abraham Lincoln a Christian?” Dr. Kennedy shares essential points about the lives of these three presidents that will open the reader's eyes to their true significance for our nation’s history and heritage of faith.
Today we’re facing a crisis in America as our Christian heritage and history are being forgotten and ignored and stripped from the history books. But as Dr. Kennedy shows in this intriguing historical examination, when we look at the lives of these three presidents, we see ample examples to show that none of these men desired to see the voice of Christianity excluded from the public square.
This booklet is a must read for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the contributions three of our greatest leaders have made to America’s Christian heritage.
