The Sweet Land of Liberty is the record of the contest between two different civilizations struggling for survival:
- The Old World Order of king, bishop, and pope ruling over the people.
- The Reformation Idea of the priesthood of the Believer and the people governing themselves from within by the Holy Spirit and under the rule of law.
What You Will Learn from This Book:
- Learn how the explorers discovered the New World, claimed the land for their kings and the true story of their interaction with the Indians.
- Read the story of the Providential Hand of God in founding the American Colonies.
- Follow the Pilgrims and Puritans as they are driven from England and crossed the Atlantic in their search for freedom to worship God.
- Watch the Christian idea of self-government develop to give the world the ideal of a written constitution based on Christian Principles that have given eagle wings to the human spirit!
- Learn how the ideals of Christian Charity developed as man's inhumanity to man gave way before the ideal of Christian love for one's neighbor and established just laws.
Our Founders believed that in history's record of the struggle of good and evil, that good would win out! They believed that the highest development in that struggle for good was Christianity. They proclaimed that the highest pinnacle toward which all history was moving was the day when the kingdoms of this world would become the Kingdoms of our God and of His Christ.
"Coffin's fondness for detail keeps the history from growing stale. He stitches the elements of early American life into a dramatic quilt. You will get a deeper understanding of history than that which the mere memorization of dates, people and places provides. You will see why Old World customs, habits and laws were gradually changed."
—Nancy Drazga, Editor of Great Christian Books
"Sweet Land Of Liberty will walk you through the founding of each of the thirteen colonies and open your eyes to the marvelous Providence of God in the founding of our great nation."
—Greg Harris, author of The Christian Home School and director of Noble Institute
