Overview

What sets "George Washington's Sacred Fire" apart from all previous works on this man for the ages, is the exhaustive fifteen years of Dr. Peter Lillback's research, revealing a unique icon driven by the highest of ideals. Only do 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. 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, 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. Through this book, Dr. Lillback, assisted by Jerry Newcombe, will reveal to the reader a newly inspirational image of General and President George Washington.

A friend suggested this book. At first the size of the book intimidated me, but once I began it became a page turner all of the way through. Lillback does an excellent job of providing opposing view points and then backs up his point of view with documents from George Washington or Washington's peers. A forth of the book is appendix and footnotes that support the material presented. This book could easily be a text book, Bible study book, or all around reference book.

Contrary to popular belief, Washington was not a deist. You don't have to be an educated man to know that. You just have to be unbiased and accept that this country was founded on Christian principles. This book settles that argument. It needs to be over 700 pages so that we get the point, Washington was not a deist.
