Overview

This book, In God We Trust: George Washington and the Spiritual Destiny of the United States of America, is a unique look into God’s hand in American history (American Providentialism), viewed through the life of George Washington. The book reflects the providential view that Washington and the other Founding Fathers had of the God of history (God of Abraham) a God in whom they placed their trust, lives, fortunes and sacred honor for the country’s future and their success in arms. The book attempts to document God’s hand in Washington’s life and the Revolutionary War using Washington’s own words and detailing the numerous miracles that led to the country’s eventual independence and subsequent Constitution. God’s hand in the founding of the United States of America and its history is perhaps one of the greatest stories seldom told. The book also explores the country’s reason for existence, God’s purpose in the founding of the United States, and what it portends for our future survival as a nation.

Editorial Reviews

The Union Leader - New Hampshire Sunday News - Nancy Bean Foster
With his new book, “In GOD We Trust: George Washington and the Spiritual Destiny
of the United States of America,” New Hampshire author Michael Shea takes readers back to look at how spirituality played a role in the founding of the country. Shea … said he wrote the book to help ensure future generations understand the role religion played in the victories and successes that men such as George Washington had on the battlefield and beyond.
LibertyQuest.net web site - Gary Kelly
“This book should be required reading in all American History curriculum! I can’t begin to tell you the impact it has had on me. I had to be compelled to put it down when working/family.”
LibertyQuest.net web site - Gerald Stills
"We tend to forget that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian foundations. This is the first book, which I have read, that has looked at U. S. History from a total Christian point of view. It is very refreshing."
LibertyQuest.net web site - Pat Buchanan
"Found most interesting the chapter on Tom Paine … Congratulations on having written the book."
