This fascinating history, based on meticulous research into the correspondence and documentation of the Founding Fathers, from the crafting of the Declaration of Independence to the signing of the peace treaty with Britain, sheds light on how the Judeo-Christian worldview motivated the Founding Fathers, influenced national independence, inspired our foundational documents, and established the American nation. Written with the pacing and feeling of an enticing drama, By the Hand of Providence is crafted for popular appeal with a compelling mix of dramatized story and action-driven narrative—but with the authenticity and academic verity of historian Rod Gragg.
