“When the odds were stacked against us - and there have been many times when the great experiment we call America could have and should have failed - did God intervene to save us?”
That question, posed by authors Chris and Ted Stewart, is the foundation for this remarkable book. And the examples they cite provide compelling evidence that the hand of Providence has indeed preserved the United States of America on multiple occasions. Skillfully weaving story vignettes with historical explanations, they examine seven instances that illustrate God’s protecting care:
Never, at any of these critical junctures, was a positive outcome certain or even likely. Yet America prevailed. Why?
“No man is perfect,” write the authors. “And neither is any nation. Yet, despite our weakness, we are still, as Abraham Lincoln said, the best nation ever given to man. Despite our faults, this nation is still the last, best hope of earth.” In short, God still cares what happens here. This reassuring message is a bright light in a world that longs for such hope.

Every American needs to know this. I have always believed that God's hand has been in the formation and deliverance of this nation. I hope to secure this for my children. To do that, more need to understand these truths and recognize God's hand in our preservation.
I am thankful for the authors of this book because it truly does show perspective of hope. The narrators did a superb job making the book come alive. I have a renewed enthusiasm for our country. A deeper understanding of who we are and where we came from. I want to read it again! What a great gift for family and friends! Everyone should be aware of the miracles we as Americans are blessed with!
