From the crafting of the Declaration of Independence to the signing of the peace treaty with Britain, this follow-up to Rod Gragg's George Washington Book Prize nominee Forged in Faith sheds light on how the Judeo-Christian worldview motivated the Founding Fathers, influenced national independence, and inspired our foundational documents.
"[The book] examines the faith-based core beliefs of the revolutionaries—and convincingly refutes the contention that George Washington was an uncommitted Christian or a deist."—Edward G. Longacre
"Gragg shows the decisive importance that Americans of the 1770s and 80s attributed to the providential intervention of God in the momentous events of the Revolution."—Steven Woodworth
