Publisher's Summary

“When the odds were stacked against us - and there have been many times when the great experiment we call America could have and should have failed - did God intervene to save us?”
That question, posed by authors Chris and Ted Stewart, is the foundation for this remarkable book. And the examples they cite provide compelling evidence that the hand of Providence has indeed preserved the United States of America on multiple occasions. Skillfully weaving story vignettes with historical explanations, they examine seven instances that illustrate God’s protecting care:

The unlikely discovery of America by Christopher Columbus
How (and why) desperate English colonists were able to survive the “starving time” at Jamestown
The Battle of New York during the Revolutionary War The miraculous creation of the United States Constitution
Abraham Lincoln’s desperate prayer that turned the tide of the Civil War at Gettysburg
How a series of extraordinary events changed the Battle of Midway during World War II
The preservation of Ronald Reagan’s life from an assassin’s bullet, allowing him the time he needed to help extend freedom around the world
Never, at any of these critical junctures, was a positive outcome certain or even likely. Yet America prevailed. Why?
“No man is perfect,” write the authors. “And neither is any nation. Yet, despite our weakness, we are still, as Abraham Lincoln said, the best nation ever given to man. Despite our faults, this nation is still the last, best hope of earth.” In short, God still cares what happens here. This reassuring message is a bright light in a world that longs for such hope.

Loved the content. Reading was clear and strong.

This book is good for the novice to expert history buff or even those who have never explored much of history. It discusses the ways America has been guided and protected by God as a vanguard of freedom for the world.

loved learning about our country. not a history buff and sometimes struggled to keep up. I'll be listening to this one over and over. the last chapter of the book is very important. I listened to it twice. God Bless America and the righteous.
