A devout Christian, Washington's religious beliefs influenced his life as a young surveyor on the dangerous frontier through his heroics as a militia leader in the French and Indian War to the dark days of Valley Forge and the triumph of the Presidency. He was held in the highest regard by his fellow citizens and history has canonized him as the most esteemed of the Founding Fathers. At the root of that esteem was his spirituality. In Faith of Our Founding Father, best-selling author Janice T. Connell examines the spiritual life of our first president. She takes us on a journey from his boyhood, scarred by the early death of his father, to the pinnacle of the Presidency. Washington was no stranger to sorrow, cold, hunger, persecution, violence or terrorism. His great accomplishment was to face misfortune and conquer it. He achieved his victory by discipline, commitment, prayer, and the graced ability to bend his will under the yoke of Divine Providence. Faith of Our Founding Father contains the entire text of the Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation, a text he learned by heart as a young schoolboy and which governed his code of behavior throughout his life. It also contains the full text of his daily prayers, which provided him solace and enriched his faith until the day he died. In a world wracked by wars, terrorism, disease, starvation, immorality and tyranny, George Washington has much to reveal to us. His accomplishments and writings disclose that Providence was in him, around him and always with him. George Washington's faith shines like a beacon to light the way for all to peace and liberty on earth and happiness thereafter.… (more)
