Published by Providence Forum Press   

Dr. Peter Lillback's exhaustive fifteen years of research set’s George Washington's Sacred Fire apart from all previous works Washington’s faith. It presents a man driven by the highest of ideals using Washington's own writings, journals, letters, manuscripts, and those of his closest family and confidants to reveal the truth of this awe-inspiring role model for all generations. Dr. Lillback convincingly shows how when faced with unprecedented challenges and circumstances, Washington ultimately drew upon his persistent qualities of character - honesty, justice, equity, perseverence, piety, forgiveness, humility, and servant leadership, to become one of the most revered figures in world history. George Washington set the cornerstone for what would become one of the most prosperous, free nations in the history of civilization.


An enlightening, engaging and long overdue correction of the falsehood that Washington lacked faith.

-Rodney Stark, Baylor University



George Washington, the uniquely venerated Founding Father of our nation, valiant warrior of the American Revolution, and devoted family man has been the subject of countless writings by scholars and storytellers alike. What sets George Washington's Sacred Fire apart from all previous literary works on this man for the ages, is the exhaustive fifteen years of Dr. Peter Lillback's research, revealing a world icon driven by the highest of ideals, not the least of which was his genuine Christian faith.

Dr. Lillback paints a picture of a man, who, faced with unprecedented challenges and circumstances, ultimately drew upon his persistent qualities of character - honesty, justice, equity, perseverance, piety, forgiveness, humility, and servant leadership, to become one of the most revered figures in world history.

A vast number of books on George Washington are characterized by anecdotal recountings and factually unsubstantiated conclusions that, up to now, few have strived to correct. However, George Washington's own writings, journals, letters, manuscripts, and those of his closest family and confidants reveal the truth of this awe-inspiring role model for all generations.

George Washington set the cornerstone for what would become one of the most prosperous, free nations in the history of civilization. "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports," he said in his farewell address. Through this book, Dr. Lillback, assisted by Jerry Newcombe, reveals to the reader a highly inspirational image of General and President George Washington.

Arvustused

"Dr. Lillback buries the myth that Washington was an unbeliever, at most a 'deist', under an avalanche of facts." - Robert P. George, Princeton University, author Clash of Orthodoxies "Secular historians ignore George Washington's ward Nelly Custis, who wrote that doubting his Christian faith was as absurd as doubting his patriotism. But they cannot ignore this mountain of evidence suggesting Washington's religion was not deism, but just the sort of low-church Anglicanism one would expect in an eighteenth century Virginia gentleman. His 'sacred fire' lit America's path toward civil and religious liberty." - Walter A. McDougall, Pulitzer Prize-winning author"
