George Washington's Sacred Fire - (Paperback)
By Peter A. Lillback and Jerry Newcombe
George Washington – the Founding Father of our Nation – has been the subject of great confusion and debate about his faith, leading to the misconception that he was a deist. The purpose of "George Washington’s Sacred Fire" is to prove definitively that George Washington was indeed a devout, practicing Christian.
Through the 15 years of sound academic and scholarly research that has gone into this book, "George Washington’s Sacred Fire" supplies a thorough and historically accurate definition of deism and how it was impossible for Washington to have been a deist. The book addresses and critiques the evidence used by 20th-century scholars to “prove” that Washington was a deist and produce extensive primary source documents, illustrations and quotes from Washington’s own papers and those of his closest colleagues and family that categorically refute this claim, clarifying why the faith of our Founding Father matters in 21st-century America and beyond.
Most other books published about George Washington’s faith argue for Washington’s religious convictions based on anecdotal evidence that often either cannot be substantiated, or possesses questionable authenticity. "George Washington’s Sacred Fire" will leave you awestruck by the faith, values and ideals of this great founder of our nation – the reader will see him as a unique role model for generations of Americans.
