Within the pages of Barbara Schenkel’s new book, readers will view the original writings of the Founders of the United States, that reveal their personal conversations with God and prayers to God. The drama of each person's circumstance is experienced as historical facts and their intimate conversations with God in seeking guidance are shared. These writings show that the Founders believed true liberty and freedom come from God and each was willing to sacrifice all for that cause. This book includes scripture verses at the beginning of the life story of each Founder. Readers will share in the love of freedom and future dreams of such persons as George and Martha Washington, John and Abigail Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Noah Webster and many others – all written in present tense about their love for liberty and zeal to obtain it.
“In the past eighty years, most books on the lives of the Founders, have deleted all references to God and the Founder's prayers from their pages,” states the author. “This book carefully researched from original records, shows evidence that the Founders knew their vision was greater than their abilities, and depended on God for answers on how to establish a new nation founded on religious freedom.”
