Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gragg shows how religion and politics were indelibly linked in colonial America…Offers an entertaining introduction to an important topic.” Library Journal
“The old proverb is accurate: ‘If you dwell in the past you lose an eye; if you forget the past you lose both eyes.’ Our beloved America is dangerously close to losing both eyes. Books like Forged in Faith, from men like Rod Gragg, are corrective lenses intensely focused on our national roots. It is what our founding fathers wisely called ‘a frequent recurrence to fundamentals.’ Read it and act.” Stu Weber, senior pastor of Good Shepherd Community Church; author of Tender Warrior
“An excellent and much-needed book by a veteran historian. Well-researched and engagingly written, Forged in Faith is a pleasure to read and an indispensable starting point for a clear understanding of the origins and nature of American government and society.” Steven E. Woodworth, author of While God Is Marching On: The Religious World of Civil War Soldiers
“No wonder Americans have always proclaimed, ‘In God We Trust!’ Finally—a work of history that skillfully and accurately reveals the extraordinary story of faith and the founding of our nation. This is truly a book ‘for such a time as this.’” J. C. Watts, former congressman from Oklahoma
