Wylie, James A.
Will the Father of our Country be remembered as a Christian hero, or thrown out like a tattered shoe and be forgotten forever?
George Washington: A Life Lived for God and Country examines the writings, speeches, and first-hand accounts of Washington's actions to learn of his deeplyheld religious convictions. Also includes a fast-paced, adventure-filled biography of Washington.
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.
May this book serve to be an inspiration to all who–like Washington–face innumerable obstacles to the preservation of liberty.
“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
