This book of historical writings expands ideas introduced in America’s Providential History. Reading primary source materials is the best way to learn of the faith and worldview of America’s founders. These writings show how the Founders had a Christian philosophy of government, they understood the divine purpose of civil government, and they knew that government begins internally in the heart of man with the ability to govern his own life. Over 25 selections including: Columbus’ Christian Character and Divine Mission; The Seige of Leyden, Holland (1574) by John Motley; The Fast and Thanksgiving Days of New England; Christianity the Key to the Character and Career of Washington; Election Day in Early America; Letter To A Young Gentleman Commencing His Education by Noah Webster; Letters of John Quincy Adams to His Son on the Bible and Its Teachings.
