Stewart is also the author of Seven Miracles That Saved America: Why They Matter and Why We Should Have Hope.

When the odds were stacked against us, and there have been many times when the great experiment we call America could have and should have failed, did God intervene to save us?

That question, posed by authors Chris and Ted Stewart, is the foundation for this remarkable book. And the examples they cite provide compelling evidence that the hand of Providence has indeed preserved the United States of America on multiple occasions. Skillfully weaving story vignettes with historical explanations, they examine seven instances that illustrate God’s protecting care:

-The unlikely discovery of America by Christopher Columbus

-How (and why) desperate English colonists were able to survive the starving time at Jamestown

-The Battle of New York during the Revolutionary War

-The miraculous creation of the United States Constitution

-Abraham Lincoln’s desperate prayer that turned the tide of the Civil War at Gettysburg

-How a series of extraordinary events changed the Battle of Midway during World War II

-The preservation of Ronald Reagan’s life from an assassin’s bullet, allowing him the time he needed to help extend freedom around the world

Never, at any of these critical junctures, was a positive outcome certain or even likely. Yet America prevailed. Why?

“No man is perfect,” write the authors. “And neither is any nation. Yet, despite our weakness, we are still, as Abraham Lincoln said, the best nation ever given to man. Despite our faults, this nation is still the last, best hope of earth.” In short, God still cares what happens here. This reassuring message is a bright light in a world that longs for such hope.

In Canada, the guy in charge of our science is a chiropractor and a YEC, so he has the alternative medicine woo, and the creationism woo covered.

Lucky for us our science is under the control of an expert in woo-woo.

The Jamestown claim made me laugh out loud. Virtually the entire colony was wiped out by starvation in a tough winter, and that’s viewed as a POSITIVE intervention from God? What a wacko.

GOP ‘rebranding’ will never work, because the wackiness isn’t a fringe effect that ‘economic reformers’ at the core of the party tolerate; it’s the other way around.
