Verna Hall's classic compliation of America's establishment as the world's first Christian Constitutional Republic restores the idea of the Providential approach to history and government. from this major volume springs the documentation of the Hand of God in the history of men and nations. Compiled with primary texts, one reads the very words of founders such as Samuel Adams, John Smith, John Locke and other notable figures in colonialized American history. The "Westward Chain of Christianity" is also emphasized with the idea of God moving man and government westward to appear as an American Constitutional Republic. Better documented footnoted and a revised layout and side margin notes make this comprehensive work even more impressive. 489 pages with glossary and index. Gold-stamped red vellum cover with embossed Paul Revere eagle.
