“This book should be required reading in all American History curriculum! I can’t begin to tell you the impact it has had on me. I had to be compelled to put it down when working/family.”

— Gary W. Kelly Sr., Author of the book “Lessons of the Holy Spirit”


"We tend to forget that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian foundations. This is the first book, which I have read, that has looked at U. S. History from a total Christian point of view. It is very refreshing."

— Gerald C. Still, Historian at the Liberty Bell Museum at Zion's Church, Allentown, PA


"Found most interesting the chapter on Tom Paine … Congratulations on having written the book."

— Pat Buchanan, Author and columnist


An incredibly insightful, historical & Spiritual accounting of our 1st president’s role in the formation of the United States -

"Based in part on thousands of detailed personal letters sent from & to George Washington while he was a Major in the Virginia Militia during the French & Indian War, Colonel under Major General Edward Braddock in the Massacre at Monongahela, Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, 2 term President of the United States, and one of the founding fathers of the US Constitution. Described as having God-Like virtues, Washington was resolute and determined to successfully establish US Independence with the helping hand of God and the divine guidance of Providence. Also in the book is a chapter on "Future History" which reminds us the hand of God and the divine guidance of Providence is still active and of what could happen to those liberties our forefathers fought & died for.

You'll love this book!"

An Engineer decides he wants to understand America -


"During the Clinton years, this engineer decided he had not been taught enough to understand what was going on in America. What about God, and America, and his own life. How does it all fit together. He wanted to know.

Since the national motto is "In God We Trust", can we understand God's hand on the discovery, the planting of first colonies, and subsequent growth of America? The chapter on the French and Indian War gives the reader an important picture of America before the Revolution of 1775-1776. References from Field Orders given by General Washington along with numerous other original sources all work together shining a bright light on the inner thoughts of this nation's founders. Newspapers, private diaries, last will and testament of leaders, and private writings are highlighted to focus this book on giving understanding to the reader of God's work in rising up America.

And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid ... Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanack, 1757 ... "America will never be destroyed from the outside.

The book even dares to talk about what could happen in America's future, possibly from the inside, and on our own soil. It is not in vain that it is written, To the pure God will show Himself pure; but to the froward, He will show Himself froward. (Psalm 18:26) Another words, the golden rule works in reverse as well. God will do unto us like we have done unto Him. Unless we return to our first love, our children are inheriting a love lost land. Christianity was the root of America's blessing. The book helps you see the faith of early Americans from their own words."
