Publisher Description

Does America still have a rendezvous with destiny? Is there yet a generation to come forth from this nation which will turn the hearts of not only its countrymen back to the living God, but the heart of the world as well?

Charles C. Coffin’s The Story of Liberty, originally published in 1879, reaches back into the records of history to observe the hand of the Great Author and give a direction for the days ahead. As we look at that which preceded our nation’s history and led to its founding, we will begin to have an idea of what liberty cost those who love the truth and how much still is at stake.

    " When we feel like the world is going bad, this keeps things all in perspective. How much worse during the Spanish Inquisition, or for the poor in the Middle Ages! This is a history told as story from the Magna Carta to modern day. Excellent read. "

    " I don't normally like reading history, but Coffin writes history like he's telling a story. This book begins with the Magna Charta and takes the reader through the middle ages and the reformation periods up to the Pilgrims. "

    " A look at some of the threads of European history from the 1200s to the late 1500s that shows the unwavering connection between spiritual truth and political truth, between spiritual freedom and political freedom. Another must-read to understand such important issues, in my opinion! "

    " This book really digs into the Catholic Church and is probably very biased. It opened my eyes as a teenager and taught me some very interesting things from history. If I read it again, I probably would end up filtering out a lot of the bias and doing some impartial research. Good Read. "
