  • They Were Soldiers

    $19.99

    They Were Soldiers showcases the inspiring true stories of 49 Vietnam veterans who returned home from the lost war to enrich America’s present and future.

    In this groundbreaking new book, Joseph L. Galloway, distinguished war correspondent and New York Times bestselling author of We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young, and Marvin J. Wolf, Vietnam veteran and award-winning author, reveal the private lives of those who returned from Vietnam to make astonishing contributions in science, medicine, business, and other arenas, and change America for the better.

    For decades, the soldiers who served in Vietnam were shunned by the American public and ignored by their government. Many were vilified or had their struggles to reintegrate into society magnified by distorted depictions of veterans as dangerous or demented. Even today, Vietnam veterans have not received their due. Until now. These profiles are touching and courageous, and often startling.

    They include veterans both known and unknown, including:

    *Frederick Wallace (“Fred”) Smith, CEO and founder of FedEx

    *Marshall Carter, chairman of the New York Stock Exchange

    *Justice Eileen Moore, appellate judge who also serves as a mentor in California’s Combat Veterans Court

    *Richard Armitage, former deputy secretary of state under Colin Powell

    *Guion “Guy” Bluford Jr., first African American in space

    Engrossing, moving, and eye-opening, They Were Soldiers is a magnificent tribute that gives long overdue honor and recognition to the soldiers of this forgotten generation.

  • Redeeming Our Thinking About History

    $24.99

    Why Is It Critical for Christians to Study the Past?

    How does knowledge of the past shape Christians’ views of God, Christ’s redemption, and humanity as a whole? In his new book, Vern S. Poythress teaches Christians how to study and write about the past by emphasizing God’s own command to remember his works and share them with the next generation. Readers will explore concepts such as providentialism, Christian historiography, divine purpose, and the 4 basic phases of biblical history: creation, fall, redemption, and consummation. By learning how to appropriately study history, believers will begin to recognize God’s lordship over all events and how even minor incidents fit into his overarching plan.

  • April 1945 : The Hinge Of History

    $28.99

    Acclaimed historian and New York Times bestselling author Craig Shirley delivers a compelling account of 1945, particularly the watershed events in the month of April, that details how America emerged from World War II as a leading superpower.

    In the long-awaited follow-up to the widely praised December 1941, Craig Shirley’s April 1945 paints a vivid portrait of America–her people, faith, economy, government, and culture. The year of 1945 bought a series of watershed events that transformed the country into an arsenal of democracy, one that no longer armed the world by necessity but henceforth protected the world by need.

    At the start of 1945, America and the rest of the world were grieving millions of lives lost in the global conflict. As President Roosevelt was sworn into his fourth term, optimism over an end to the bloody war had grown–then, in April, several events collided that changed the face of the world forever: the sudden death of President Roosevelt followed by Harry S. Truman’s rise to office; Adolph Hitler’s suicide; and the horrific discoveries of Dachau and Auschwitz. Americans doubled down on their completion of the atomic bomb and their plans to drop them on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the destruction ultimately leading the Japanese Empire to surrender on V-J day and ending World War II for good.

    Combining engaging anecdotes with deft research and details that are both diminutive and grand, April 1945 gives readers a front-row seat to the American stage at the birth of a brand-new world.

  • Pilgrim Legacy

    $9.99

    A story that must not be erased from America’s history or from the public squares of nations worldwide…

    “In all the history of the world, as nations have arisen and fallen amid endless war and bloodshed, the founding of America was utterly unique,” writes Derek Prince. “Reaching the shores of an unknown wilderness, a small group of people planted seeds–not of military might, or wealth, or power, but seeds of faith and freedom. And those seeds took hold and grew.”

    Such seeds affect the destinies of nations.

    A nation participates in shaping its own destiny through the process of sowing and reaping: what nations sow, they will reap. If they seek to align themselves with God’s purposes, they will experience His favor and blessing. But if they seek to align themselves with purposes that are in opposition to God’s, they will not prosper.

    Who were the Pilgrims? Why did they come to America? What difference did they make in the history of our country–and what does their legacy tell us about our country’s destiny?

    The seeds sown by our Pilgrim ancestors 400 years ago continue to influence our culture and government. The basic principles by which they lived–beliefs in personal liberty, freedom of religion, and living in covenant with others–laid a strong foundation for America’s religious and political freedom. Without question, what the Pilgrims sowed, America has reaped as an abundant harvest.

    Yet how long will the blessing of the Pilgrims’ influence continue? The light of this nation is still shining. But something is going wrong. Like a heavy, unanticipated fog, a spiritual darkness is gradually moving in to dim that light.

    In The Pilgrim Legacy, internationally recognized Bible teacher and scholar Derek Prince discloses the biblical principles and tools at work in the lives of this small group of Christians who were, in a sense, the spiritual ancestors of the United States. It was these principles that not only helped to establish the nation but enabled America to be a stepping-stone in spreading the light of the gospel of the kingdom around the world.

    By discovering and implementing the principles by which the Pilgrims lived, we can continue The Pilgrim Legacy today and preserve the spiritual destiny of our nation.

  • Beyond Valor : A World War II Story Of Extraordinary Heroism, Sacrificial L

    $18.99

    Beyond Valor is one soldier’s extraordinary tale of bravery, heroism, faith, and devotion.

    On April 12, 1945, a fleet of American B-29 bombers flew toward Japan. Their mission was simple: stop World War II by burning the cities, factories, and military bases of the Japanese em­pire, thereby forcing an unconditional surren­der. Yet the mission did not go as planned. On board one of the B-29s, the City of Los Angeles, a phosphorus bomb detonated inside the plane. Staff Sergeant Henry E. “Red” Erwin absorbed the blast of burning phosphorus yet managed to throw overboard the still-flaming bomb, before collapsing from the third-degree burns over much of his body.

    Breaking protocol, the plane diverted to a military hospital at Iwo Jima. President Truman quickly ordered that Erwin be awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest honor of the American military, before the young airman died of his wounds. There was just one problem: no Medals of Honor were available in the entire Pacific theater. General Curtis LeMay dispatched a squad of airmen on a 1,000-mile mission to smash their way into a display case and steal a medal to give to Erwin before time ran out.

    Meanwhile, Red’s courageous young bride set out on her own mission, one of against-all-odds healing. Her success would determine the fate of the twenty-three-year-old warrior–and years later make possible the birth of the book’s author: their grandson, Jon Erwin.

    Drawn from in-depth interviews with eyewitnesses and deep archival research, Beyond Valor is an extraordinary tale of bravery, heroism, faith, and devotion.

  • Short History Of Christian Zionism

    $36.00

    This book is about an idea–namely, that Scripture mandates a Jewish return to the historical region of Palestine–which in turn morphed into a political movement, rallied around a popular slogan (“A country without a nation for a nation without a country”), and eventually contributed to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.

    Christian Zionism continues to influence global politics, especially U.S. foreign policy, and has deeply affected Jewish-Christian and Muslim-Christian relations. Donald M. Lewis seeks to provide a fair-minded, longitudinal study of this dynamic yet controversial movement as he traces its lineage from biblical sources through the Reformation to various movements of today. He explores Christian Zionism’s interaction with other movements, forces, and discourses, especially in eschatological and political thought, and why it is now flourishing beyond the English-speaking world. Throughout he demonstrates how it has helped British and American Protestants frame and shape their identity. A Short History of Christian Zionism seeks to bring clarity and context to often-heated discussions.

  • Hunting The Unabomber

    $19.99

    The spellbinding account of the most complex and captivating manhunt in American history.

    On April 3, 1996, a team of FBI agents closed in on an isolated cabin in remote Montana, marking the end of the longest and most expensive investigation in FBI history. The cabin’s lone inhabitant was a former mathematics prodigy and professor who had abandoned society decades earlier. Few people knew his name, Theodore Kaczynski, but everyone knew the mayhem and death associated with his nickname: the Unabomber

    For two decades, Kaczynski had masterminded a campaign of random terror, killing and maiming innocent people through bombs sent in untraceable packages. The FBI task force charged with finding the perpetrator of these horrifying crimes grew to 150 people, yet his identity remained a maddening mystery. Then, in 1995, a “manifesto” from the Unabomber was published in the New York Times and Washington Post, resulting in a cascade of tips–including the one that cracked the case.

    Hunting the Unabomber includes:
    *Exclusive interviews with key law enforcement agents who attempted to track down Kaczynski, correcting the history distorted by earlier films and streaming series

    *Never-before-told stories of inter-agency law enforcement conflicts that changed the course of the investigation

    *An in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at why the hunt for the Unabomber was almost shut down by the FBI

    New York Times bestselling author and former federal prosecutor Lis Wiehl meticulously reconstructs the white-knuckle, tension-filled hunt to identify and capture the mysterious killer. This is a can’t-miss, true crime thriller of the years-long battle of wits between the FBI and the brilliant-but-criminally insane Ted Kaczynski.

  • Zambia Home : A Missionary Nurse Endures

One of the great unsung Christian heroes of our time, Arlene Schuiteman’s story will touch your heart and embolden your spirit to declare the glory of God to the next generation.

    At age nineteen, Arlene Schuiteman began keeping a journal. That daily discipline continued throughout her life, including thirty-four years of nursing and teaching in three African countries: South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Zambia. She then placed her Africa journals and letters into the hands of her friend, playwright Jeff Barker. He adapted Arlene’s writings into plays, and now they have become a book series: Sioux Center Sudan, Iowa Ethiopia, and Zambia Home.

    This third book in the trilogy covers the final decade of Arlene’s career, starting with the birth of a nation and passing through the death of Arlene’s mother. Arlene grapples with radically changing infrastructures and the Zambianization of medicine. Then, as she nears the end of her career, the HTLV-3 virus stuns the world. Arlene’s spiritual and emotional journal has never been richer or more complex than this fitting final chapter of her amazing journey.

    Arlene’s story has the power to transfix, pierce, and heal. This is more than historical record. Here is a winsome saga that declares the power of God to the next generation.

  • 100 Bible Verses That Made America

    $19.99

    Esteemed author Robert J. Morgan explores 100 Bible verses that powerfully impacted our leaders during defining moments in American history and reflects upon what these verses mean for us as a nation today.

    The Bible has played a starring role in American history from our nation’s beginnings. When George Washington was sworn into office as our first president, he did not place his hand on the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States, as hallowed as those documents are. Instead, he swore upon and even kissed the Bible to sanctify this important moment. The Bible, Washington knew, had ushered American history to this point.

    Trying to explain American history without its Bible is like trying to understand the human body without its bloodstream. Had there been no Bible, there would be no America as we know it. It is the Bible that made America.

    While not every Founding Father was a Christian, a Bible-believer, or a paragon of virtue and not every leader has honored the Bible nor appreciated its influence, there is an undeniable history of leaders who’ve been intimately acquainted with the contents of the Bible, who’ve studied its scriptures and respected its teachings. Journey with Robert J. Morgan as he teaches about the Bible’s role in the defining moments and impact on the people of our nation’s history, reminding us of the beauty at the intersection of faith and country and reigniting our hearts’ passions for both.

  • America : The Last Best Hope – One Volume Edition

    $29.99

    A single-volume edition of William J. Bennett’s bestselling series, thoroughly revised and updated.

    “The role of history is to inform, inspire, and sometimes provoke us, which is why Bill Bennett’s wonderfully readable book is so important.” –Walter Isaacson

    A decade ago, William J. Bennett published a magisterial three-volume account of our nation’s history. Now, Bennett returns to that bestselling trilogy, revising and condensing his epic tale into one volume, a page-turning narrative of our exceptional nation. In Bennett’s signature gripping prose, Washington, Franklin, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Reagan, and others reemerge not as marble icons or dust-dry names in a textbook, but as full-blooded, heroic pioneers whose far-reaching vision forged a nation that attracted and still attracts millions yearning to breathe free.

    From the heroism of the Revolution to the dire hours of the Civil War, from the progressive reforms of the early 1900s to the civil rights reforms of the 1960s, from the high drama of the Space Race to the gut-wrenching tension of the Cold War, from the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of global Communism to the attacks of 9-11 and the war on terror, William J. Bennett captures the players, personalities, and pivotal moments of American history with piercing insight and unrelenting optimism. In this gripping tale of a nation, the story of what Lincoln referred to as “the last best hope of earth” comes alive in all its drama and personality.

  • Did America Have A Christian Founding

    $18.99

    A distinguished professor debunks the assertion that America’s Founders were deists who desired the strict separation of church and state and instead shows that their political ideas were profoundly influenced by their Christian convictions.

    In 2010, David Mark Hall gave a lecture at the Heritage Foundation entitled “Did America Have a Christian Founding?” His balanced and thoughtful approach to this controversial question caused a sensation. C-SPAN televised his talk, and an essay based on it has been downloaded more than 300,000 times.

    In this new book, Hall expands upon this essay, making the airtight case that America’s Founders were not deists; that they did not create a “godless” Constitution; that even Jefferson and Madison did not want a high wall separating church and state; that most Founders believed the government should encourage Christianity; and that they embraced a robust understanding of religious liberty for biblical and theological reasons. In addition, Hall explains why and how the Founders’ views are absolutely relevant today.

    This compelling and utterly persuasive book will convince skeptics and equip believers and conservatives to defend the idea that Christian thought was crucial to the nation’s founding–and that this benefits all of us, whatever our faith (or lack of faith).

  • Americas Expiration Date

    $18.99

    A warning and a wake-up call to learn history so we are not doomed to repeat it. A must-read for anyone who longs for a promising future for our great nation.

    What is wrong with America today? Is it possible that America could crumble and our democracy fail?

    Questions like these plague Americans and cause us to be anxious about the future of the “land that we love.” Individuals may come to different conclusions, but there seems to be a common thread – the deep-seated feeling that we need to improve our country. Our culture is increasingly immoral, the family structure is threatened from all sides, and government programs consistently overreach, creating massive debt.

    In this powerful and prophetic book, nationally syndicated columnist and trusted political commentator Cal Thomas offers a diagnosis of what exactly is wrong with the United States by drawing parallels to once-great empires and nations that declined into oblivion. Citing the historically proven 250-year pattern of how superpowers rise and fall, he predicts that America’s expiration date is just around the corner and shows us how to escape their fate.

    Through biblical insights and hard-hitting truth, he reminds us that real change comes when America looks to God instead of Washington. Scripture, rather than politics, is the GPS he uses to point readers to the right road – a road of hope, life, and change. Because, he says, if we’re willing to seek God first, learn from history, and make changes at the individual and community level, we can not only survive, but thrive, again.

    This powerful, timely, and much-needed perspective is a must-read for anyone who longs for a promising future for our great nation.

    A miraculous true story of a soldier’s unspeakable heroism, a teenage woman’s unfailing love, and the faith that secured them all.

    On April 12, 1945, as a fleet of American B-29 bombers flew toward Japan, disaster struck: a phosphorous bomb detonated inside one of the planes. Staff Sergeant Henry E. “Red” Erwin absorbed the blast of burning phosphorous and threw overboard the still-flaming bomb, then collapsed from the third-degree burns over much of his body.

    Meanwhile, a courageous teenage bride set out on her own mission, one of against-all-odds healing. Her mission’s success would mean an entirely new destiny for the twenty-three-year-old warrior–and years later make possible the birth of the book’s author, Jon Erwin.

  • 1st Adam Vs Last Adam

    $5.99

    First Adam vs. Last Adam offers a viewpoint of America’s embrace of our national government and those citizens who also embrace the kingdom of God. The current inability of our political leaders to find workable solutions to our country’s problems is troubling for many Americans. Confidence in our leader’s ability to effectively govern is a low point.

    This brief commentary takes the reader back to the fundamental perspective of the original writers of the Declaration of Independence. This document forms the basis of America’s initial desire to be free from onerous laws imposed by the British sovereign.

    Today our government has reassumed the role of a sovereign king in many matters. That authority needs to be challenged with the authority of the kingdom of God.

    This is a call for Christians to reflect upon misguided leadership offering inadequate solutions.

In addition, Hall explains why and how the Founders’ views are absolutely relevant today.

    This compelling and utterly persuasive book will equip believers and conservatives to defend the idea that Christian thought was crucial to the nation’s founding and that this benefits all of us, whatever our faith (or lack of faith).

  • Opening The Red Door

    $30.00

    After the Berlin Wall fell, a group of Christian colleges in the U.S. seized the opportunity to begin strategic faculty and student exchanges with universities inside the Soviet Union.

    They could not have foreseen the doors that would open next. During a 1990 visit to Russia, John Bernbaum and his colleagues received a surprising invitation from a Russian government official: come help build a faith-based university in Moscow. Thus, after seventy years of fierce religious persecution under communism, the Russian-American Christian University (RACU) was born. In Opening the Red Door, Bernbaum presents an insider’s account of the rise and fall of a Russian-American partnership. As a founder and later president of RACU, Bernbaum offers a ground-level perspective on Russia’s post-communist transition and the construction of a cultural-educational bridge between the two superpowers. He describes how American RACU staff worked to understand Russian history and culture–including the nation’s rich spiritual heritage–so they could support their new Russian friends in rebuilding an educational system and a society. He documents the story of the first private Christian liberal arts university to be accredited in Russia’s history, from its first steps, through its major successes, to its facing increasing opposition during the Putin era. Opening the Red Door offers unique insight not only into Russian culture and post-Cold War history but also traces the dynamics within international educational institutions and partnerships. When he first traveled to Russia, Bernbaum writes, he thought of it as a nation of mystery. But after more than twenty-five years of work there, he believes Russia can be understood. His journey of understanding will prove instructive to educators, administrators, students, missionaries, and anyone interested in international relations.

  • Gods Spies : The Stasi’s Cold War Espionage Campaign Inside The Church

    $25.00

    The real-life cloak-and-dagger story of how East Germany’s notorious spy agency infiltrated churches here and abroadEast Germany only existed for a short forty years, but in that time, the country’s secret police, the Stasi, developed a highly successful “church department” that-using persuasion rather than threats-managed to recruit an extraordinary stable of clergy spies. Pastors, professors, seminary students, and even bishops spied on colleagues, other Christians, and anyone else they could report about to their handlers in the Stasi. Thanks to its pastor spies, the Church Department (official name: Department XX/4) knew exactly what was happening and being planned in the country’s predominantly Lutheran churches. Yet ultimately it failed in its mission: despite knowing virtually everything about East German Christians, the Stasi couldn’t prevent the church-led protests that erupted in 1989 and brought down the Berlin Wall.

  • Story Of Freedom

    $16.95

    If the Son will set you free, you will be free indeed. Freedom is quickly disappearing in the Western world. Big government tyranny is on the rise just about everywhere. Liberty is hardly a value anymore in the minds of the masses. The question facing this generation is real and concerning: “Will we leave our children and grandchildren in prison camps and gulags?” The Christian West provided a legacy of liberty for over 800 years, and it is a heritage that is quickly disappearing and soon to be forgotten. Many have enjoyed the blessing of liberty over the centuries. Hundreds of millions of people have fled tyranny for safe haven in Christian countries. But, the heritage is almost gone now. Many have enjoyed the fruits of liberty but so few do anything to produce it. It is for Christians to regain a new appreciation for true liberty in Christ. Christians must relearn the biblical definition of freedom and the value of liberty. And Christians must teach their children the great heritage of Western liberties. This book recovers this heritage and tells the thrilling story of liberty in the Western world. These are the very best stories of history, as Western liberties developed through the influence of Christian pastors and leaders over 2,000 years. The reader will learn of the critical battle for the Magna Carta, the Swiss struggle for independence with William Tell, the Scottish War for Independence with William Wallace, the Dutch War for Independence with William the Silent, the battle for religious liberties in the 17th century, and America’s War for Independence and the securing of the Bill of Rights. The message of this book is simple – the time has come to recover the heritage and leave a legacy for liberty. This begins by defining liberty rightly and realizing that true freedom is only possible by the blood of Jesus Christ. This is freedom from sin, freedom indeed. It is the bedrock freedom that gives birth to all other freedoms. *2nd Edition, previously published as Freedom”

  • Jerusalem : A Biblical And Historical Case For The Jewish Capital

    $22.99

    In his new book, New York Times bestselling author Jay Sekulow presents a political and historical rationale for the existence of Israel as a sovereign nation.

    The State of Israel and its very right to exist is a lynchpin issue not only in the Middle-East, but is a critical issue to the world at large. Whether it is the blatant and stated desire of ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, or Iran to wipe Israel from the face of the earth, or the more subtle but equally insidious aim to delegitimize Israel’s existence through efforts at UNESCO, the goal is the same-to get rid of Israel.

    Here is the book that defends, Israel’s right to exist as a sovereign nation. As Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow has fought with Israel hand-in-hand in some of Israel’s most strategic, international battles. Now, he has pulled together the definitive and comprehensive look at Israel-one of the world’s most controversial nations- and its importance to us as Americans and as a key focal point to the future of the world.

    He looks at the legal case for its prominence, as well as the historical and political rationale for its existence as a sovereign nation and homeland for Jews today, and encourages readers to stand with him against the hatred, lies, and efforts to delegitimize one of the world’s oldest nations.

  • Last Christians : Stories Of Persecution Flight And Resilience In The Middl

    $18.00

    A Westerner’s travels among the persecuted and displaced Christian remnant in Iraq and Syria teach him much about faith under fire.
    After three years of construction, the new Armenian church in Mosul, Iraq, was finally ready for the dedication ceremony. Instead, the architect Ziyad Hani found himself a witness as Islamic extremists dynamited the beautifully designed sanctuary. Still today, the pain can be seen in his face. As a Christian, he has fled his hometown and lives in Germany.
    In Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State, or ISIS, has been deliberately destroying the culture of a region that is the cradle of our own society’s spiritual roots. Andreas Knapp, a priest who works with refugees in Germany, decided to retrace the refugee trail, visiting camps for displaced people in northern Iraq. Here he found Christians who today still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus. The uprooted remnant of ancient churches, they doggedly continue to practice their faith despite the odds. Their shocking eyewitness reports help us understand why millions of people are fleeing the Middle East. And their indomitable spirit provides inspiration to religious minorities everywhere.

    Includes sixteen pages of color photographs.

    On the approach to Saigon, seeing the rice paddies and the jungle below, my detached feelings about the war began to emerge.

  • God Israel And You

    $16.95

    Issues like abortion, homosexuality, and old-young earth debate often drive wedges both between the church and the world. Another polarizing issue is the Arab-Israeli conflict. Evangelical support for Israel among the younger generation is dropping at an alarming rate. Why is there such division between the church and the world and even among believers themselves about this issue?

    God, Israel, and You attempts to bridge the gap by providing a courageous and honest look at Jesus, His involvement in the world, and how it relates to the issues of today. It makes the case for Israel by being pro-God and explaining His redemptive purposes for the Arabs to a new generation through scripture, history, and morality.

    Believers are called to be ready with an answer for the faith that is within us. God, Israel, and You is about answers; it’s about the knowledge of God, finding hope in this chaotic world, and recognizing the story where we find a faithful God who is intimately involved with the affairs of mankind. Rather than coming at the issues with an us-versus-them mentality, God, Israel, and You reveals a God who is involved, who gets His hands dirty, and embraces the paradoxes of the Bible: it is both straightforward and mysterious, accessible and infinite, supernatural and practical. When we can accept the supernatural, we can recognize that God is using both Jews and Arabs, and the next generation in a way that reflects the character of Jesus, and we can better understand God, Israel, and ourselves.

    Did you know that before the spread of Messiah’s message, Gentiles often sacrificed their children to their pagan gods? Did you know that there were temple prostitutes, working around the religious buildings in the Roman Empire to “help” citizens worship?

    You do know that the first followers of Yeshua (Jesus) were Jews. And everyone knows by now that Jews spread his message through the ministry of Paul, Peter, and the other apostles. But most people don’t know that these early Messianic Jews were influential in Ancient Judea, Syria, Asia Minor, Greece, Italy, Spain and the North African cities of Carthage, Cyrene and Alexandria. Not only were they influential, their impact transformed the behavior of the known world.

  • God In The Trenches

    Larkin Spivey believes that God is on America’s side, backing up his thesis with historical evidence: a phantom attack that caused George Washington to win a decisive battle; “random” events in the Pacific that gave a small American fleet victory; and a U-2 spy plane and the dead pilot that saved the world from a nuclear holocaust.

    Putting forth the idea that God’s providential hand intervened at critical junctures during America’s wars-and that Freedom is important to the Almighty-Spivey shows how miraculous events kept fate going America’s way. Miracles or mysteries, Spivey does not doubt that history has been swayed many times by a hidden hand, but will providence help America once again?
