Publisher's summary

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.

A former journalist, Gragg is director of the Center for Military and Veterans Studies at Coastal Carolina University, where he also serves as an adjunct professor of history. His works have earned the Fletcher Pratt Award, the James I. Robertson Award, and other honors and have been selected for the Book-of-the-Month Club, the History Book Club, and the Military History Book Club.

Critic reviews

By the Hand of Providence skillfully examines the faith-based core beliefs of the revolutionaries - and convincingly refutes the contention that George Washington was an uncommitted Christian or a deist.” (Edward G. Longacre, historian and author of Cavalry of the Heartland)
“Fascinating…Gragg shows the decisive importance that Americans of the 1770s and ’80s attributed to the providential intervention of God in the momentous events of the Revolution.” (Dr. Steven Woodworth, author of This Great Struggle: America’s Civil War)
“Rod Gragg has done it again! A page-turner that reads like a novel! I found myself not only wanting to devour the next page, but praying for our nation, ‘O Lord, do it again.’” (Dr. Harry Reeder III, senior pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama, and author of The Leadership Dynamic)
