The Blessings of Liberty gives you the history most Americans never learned in school, but should have. The reason, of course, is that modern history books have been rewritten and God has been erased.
But in these pages, co-authors Dr. Peter Lillback and Dr. Jerry Newcomb endeavor to tell America’s true history. They provide example after example of what the Continental Congress called, in 1776, “the over ruling providence of God,” including:
- George Washington’s account of “the miraculous care of Providence, that protected me,” despite “4 Bullets through my Coat, and two Horses shot under . . . “
- The U.S. Constitution, which Washington termed a “miracle,” one that demonstrated the “finger of Providence in human affairs greater than any event in history.”
- The Great Seal of the United States, which alludes, the Journal of Congress reported, “to the many signal interpositions of providence in favor of the American cause.”
More than 230 years ago, Benjamin Franklin asserted in a speech to the Constitutional Convention that “God governs in the affairs of man.” This powerful book gives you compelling evidence for that claim and showcases God’s hand throughout our history right up to modern America.
