Publisher's Description

When Winston Churchill was a boy of sixteen, he already had a vision for his purpose in life. “This country will be subjected somehow to a tremendous invasion . . . I shall be in command of the defences of London . . . it will fall to me to save the Capital, to save the Empire.”

It was a most unlikely prediction. Perceived as a failure for much of his life, Churchill was the last person anyone would have expected to rise to national prominence as prime minister and influence the fate of the world during World War II. But Churchill persevered, on a mission to achieve his purpose. God and Churchill tells the remarkable story of how one man, armed with belief in his divine destiny, embarked on a course to save Christian civilization when Adolf Hitler and the forces of evil stood opposed. It traces the personal, political, and spiritual path of one of history’s greatest leaders and offers hope for our own violent and troubled times.

More than a spiritual biography, God and Churchill is also a deeply personal quest. Written by Jonathan Sandys (Churchill’s great-grandson) and former White House staffer Wallace Henley, God and Churchill explores Sandys’ intense search to discover his great-grandfather—and how it changed his own destiny forever.

Editorial Reviews

Sandys, a great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, is an international public speaker on Churchill’s life, times, and leadership skills. Henley was a White House congressional aide, journalist, and columnist, and he serves at Second Baptist Church in Houston, TX. Together, this writing duo creates a robust picture of Churchill as a boy, young adult, politician, leader, and a man of strong faith values. Readers will delightfully discover much they have never known about Churchill. Neglectful parents scarred Churchill’s childhood. He didn’t naturally succeed at every level, but he is described as having a sense of destiny from early on, which drove him to never give up. As the text progresses, the focus shifts to Churchill’s religious convictions and how they deeply influenced the way he conducted his life. Throughout this meaty primer on Churchill’s personal beliefs and public life, there are countless intersections where he made tough choices based on Christian principles. The authors conclude their study of Churchill by offering his practical recommendations on sound leadership characteristics for today’s readers. Benefiting from Sandys’ intimate knowledge of Churchill’s life and Henley’s fine journalistic acumen for convincing facts, this is an excellent read.
