Study American History before the Progressives Rewrote It to Erase the Roots of Christianity from Our Nationís Founding!
If there is any one book that explains the "why" of America, this is the book. This is a must read! The civil and religious liberty destined to make its home in the wilderness of North America did not come without a price tag, and that the price has been great, this story will tell. The rich heritage of Christian self-sacrifice, courage, and unceasing vigilance that bought our liberties and laid the foundation of our nation should be "set as a seal" upon the heart of every American. It is only by these virtues that we can continue to keep what our fore-bearers worked so hard to win.
You will notice that The Story of Liberty is not America's story alone. The story began over 2000 years ago on the day Jesus stood in the synagogue in Nazareth, looked down the corridors of time, and proclaimed His mission — to bring redemption and liberty to all earthís captives. The Story of Liberty belongs to all those who are enjoying liberty in any part of the world, and it belongs to all the nations that will yet serve Christ.
- Begins in 1215 when the Army of God — the nobility of England — forced King John to sign the Magna Carta that limited his power from able to steal from the people, take their property and tax and kill them at will.
- Documents the struggle and sacrifice for Liberty and religious freedom that was birthed during the Protestant Reformation when the Bible was taken out of Latin and published and preached in the common language of the people.
- Ends when a band of Pilgrims made their way across the Atlantic to establish a new church plant and to found a nation where religious freedom and self-government would be the heritage of all. These dedicated men and women, of whom the world was not worthy, envisioned starting the whole world over again, basing their new way of life on the teachings of Jesus Christ. They believed in the New world Jesus' teaching on Christian liberty and Christian self-government would be fully realized and thoroughly developed. They made a covenant with God for this nation and its future citizens. We must stand on that covenant today!
"The tracing of the relationship of one event upon another and showing their effect on the human race is the philosophy of history. We have spoken of the meaning of history. Surely history has a meaning, else what are we living for? You will notice that the one great question greater than all others has been in
regard of the right of men to think for themselves especially in the matters of religion.
You will notice that while the oppressors have had their way, there were other forces at work, which in time undermined their plans, as if a Divine Hand were directing the counter plan. Whoever fails to recognize this will fail to fully comprehend the meaning of history. Men act freely in laying and executing their plans; but behind the turmoil and conflict of human wills there is an unseen power that shapes destiny — nations rise and fall, generations come and go, yet through the ages there has been an advancement of Justice, Truth, Right, and Liberty. Men may die, but ideas founded in Truth are eternal — they live on." —Charles Coffin
"Even young children will enjoy having bits of the narrative read to them, and adults as well as children will find through reading this book that the drama of history really is better than any novel! Highly recommended."
—Nancy Drazga, Editor of Great Christian Books
"Coffin sticks to the facts on each page, so kids get a good dose of history while learning about the true cost of our hard-won freedoms. But what really sets this book apart is Mr. Coffin's genuine Christian worldview."
