    The true drama of how faith motivated America's Founding Fathers, influenced the Declaration of Independence, and inspired the birth of the nation. Forged in Faith recounts how faith motivated Pilgrims, Puritans, Presbyterians, Baptists, Quakers, Catholics, and Anglicans alike in a unique and fascinating history of early America and the faith that forged a nation.

    Yes...there was a lot squeezed into this book, and it was incredible to walk through the history of various religions and how they affected one another throughout the forging of America.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    If you could sum up 1776 in three words, what would they be?

    Heaven shines down.


    What does David McCullough bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Some inflection...and an air of storytelling that kept me interested and involved.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could...but a tad too long for that.


    Any additional comments?

    Terrific story. A one year time capsule of various events, many times watching over the shoulder of historical greats like George Washington. I felt the description of the events of the time was very fair and vivid. It is incredible as to how much can happen in the frame of one year during the forging of the United States of America. Having listened to the book, now having a better understanding of how easily things could have tipped away from us, but how favor just happened to be on our side is incredible in and of itself. It was a good read for someone interested in digging a little deeper into stories around the Revolutionary War.
