Publisher's Summary

When Winston Churchill was a boy of 16, he already had a vision for his purpose in life. "This country will be subjected somehow to a tremendous invasion...I shall be in command of the defenses of London...it will fall to me to save the Capital, to save the Empire." It was a most unlikely prediction. Perceived as a failure for much of his life, Churchill was the last person anyone would have expected to rise to national prominence as prime minister and influence the fate of the world during World War II. But Churchill persevered, on a mission to achieve his purpose.

God and Churchill tells the remarkable story of how one man, armed with belief in his divine destiny, embarked on a course to save Christian civilization when Adolf Hitler and the forces of evil stood opposed. It traces the personal, political, and spiritual path of one of history's greatest leaders and offers hope for our own violent and troubled times.

I listened while I walk my dog I listen while I wrote in my car I listen to while I was cleaning my kitchen the 15 chapters went through swiftly and I loved every bit of it

Just excellent

Very historically insightful. This is not an overly spiritualized biography. This is a reasoned appraisal of how God used an imperfect man to spare the world a devilish destiny. I very much enjoyed this book. There's a great deal of encouraging practical info here too.

Excellent

I was not disappointed, the writer was well informed, had a family connection to Winston and could explain in a clear and believable way the relationship between God and Churchill. I learnt allot about the man and his simple yet profound understanding of God while I also learnt about Churchill's struggles, his personal and professional life. Great book.

Fascinating

A really fascinating book telling the story of Churchill’s life with much information I suspect people will not know. As a Pastor, I think even those of no faith would find it interesting

Disappointing for Churchill

Some tenuous links and a bit preachy in places. It either needs a new title or more working on the list ms between Churchill and God.
