Washington remarked that one could "trace the finger of Providence through" of framing the Constitution. From the first preaching of the Gospel in Israel across the west to Europe and America, America's Providential History defends the idea of the Westward Chain of Christianity, explaining how America was ripe for "cultured Indo-Europeans". From this perspective, the authors trace the hand of God throughout the founding and establishment of America. Quotes from historical figures, black and white art reproductions, biblical excerpts, and sermons bring a rich flavor to the text. 293 pages, indexed, softcover. This 3rd Edition features updated statistics.

Foundations of Character Homeschool Curriculum Kit (Drive Thru History America)


How unusual is it, really, in the history of all known human experience, to enjoy the blessings of living free? The answer may surprise you. In The Miracle of Freedom, Chris and Ted Stewart make a strong case that fewer than 5 percent of all people who have ever lived on the earth have lived under conditions that we could consider free. So where did freedom come from, and how are we fortunate enough to experience it in our day? A deeper look at the human record, write the authors, reveals a series of critical events, obvious forks in the road leading to very different outcomes, that resulted in this extraordinary period in which we live. They identify and discuss seven decisive tipping points: 1. The defeat of the Assyrians in their quest to destroy the kingdom of Judah 2. The victory of the Greeks over the Persians at Thermopylae and Salamis 3. Roman Emperor Constantine's conversion to Christianity 4. The defeat of the armies of Islam at Poitiers 5. The failure of the Mongols in their effort to conquer Europe 6. The discovery of the New World 7. The Battle of Britain in World War II The journey to freedom has been thousands of years long. Now that it has found its place in the world, the question for those of us who experience its benefits is simply this: Will we work to preserve the miracle of freedom that we enjoy today?

7 Tipping Points That Saved the World


An original collection of the most influential documents in American history, from the bestselling author of A Patriot's History of the United States

Since 2005, A Patriot's History of the United States has become a modern classic for its defense of America as a unique country founded on principles of justice, equality, and freedom for all. 

The Patriot's History Reader continues this tradition by going back to the original sources-the documents, speeches, and legal decisions that shaped our country into what it is today. 

The authors explore both oft-cited documents-the Declaration of Independence, Emancipation Proclamation, and Roe v. Wade--as well as those that are less famous. Among these are George Washington's letter to Alexander Hamilton, which essentially outline America's military strategy for the next 150 years, and Herbert Hoover's speech on business ethics, which examines the government's role in regulating private enterprise. 

By helping readers explore history at its source, this book sheds new light on the principles and personalities that have made America great.
