In the first of two books on the topic, conservative radio host with 5 million daily listeners and bestselling author Michael Medved discovers amazements in early American history that each suggest an “intelligent design” to America’s story, making the case that Divine Providence has steered crucial turns in the nation’s story, and will again.

America is a uniquely great nation, but does its power and prosperity stem from accidents of history, or the fulfillment of some pre-destined master plan?

In The American Miracle, conservative radio host and best-selling author Michael Medved describes a stunning series of amazements in early American history that each suggest an “intelligent design”—a higher power that has steered crucial turns in our nation’s story, and will again. In the first of two books, The American Miracle traces the grace that shaped twelve decisive moments in our history—from the desperate passengers of the Mayflower who were blown off course to the one spot in the region that gave them a fair chance for survival, to the casual discovery of three cigars wrapped in handwritten notes that assured Union victory in the Civil War. Sometimes Medved reveals the providential nature of well-known incidents, and at others he focuses on an unknown historical event that had long-term impact.

This sweeping and engrossing historical narrative proves that to sustain our unparalleled power and world presence, America must understand the purpose that placed her at the forefront of history and rise to the challenge of that fateful mandate. Download and start listening now!

  • Michael Medved does a beautiful job of piecing together the most providential parts of our history—from the story of “indestructible” George Washington to “the miracle of Lincoln.” And I can’t help but agree with his argument: To believe America is exceptional is simply to be grateful for what God has given us. Paul Ryan, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

Dr. Arthur C. Brooks, president of American Enterprise Institute; author of The Conservative Heart
