G.K. Chesterton once quipped that America is the only nation founded on a creed. This book is the story of how that happened.
George Grant is not one of those historians who is obsessed with facts and dates. He is a seasoned storyteller, and in this short little book he gives the story of the American battle for independence, beginning with the background in the founding of the colonies and the French and Indian War, he chronicles the how and why of the American Revolution, down to the Constitutional convention.
The American Revolution was in many ways not like a revolution at all. Rather than being a revolt against authority, it was a revolt in favor of law and the duty of the lesser magistrate. If you live in America, there is a great story and a great heritage for you to uncover.

Baxter was one of the most influential of the Puritans. He recognised the value of writing about 170, which have sold in tens of millions since.
The amazing thing is that whilst he was such a prolific auhtor he also exercised an exemplary pastoral ministry, preached to Oliver Cromwell and Chalres II, and was hounded by the authorities.
Baxter was eventually imprisoned by the notorious ‘bloody’ judge Jeffreys whom Baxter obviously exasperated “I see the rogue in your face” said Jeffreys during the trial, “I was not aware my face was so true a mirror” shot back Baxter.
During his pastorate at Kidderminster in England he and one assistant, were catechising 800 hundred families per year by taking them in groups of 14 or 15 families on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Thursdays, Baxter acted as an informal judge, settling forms of conscience. The effect on the community was such that ‘the jails in Kidderminster were empty’ at this time – yet he considered all this as secondary to his writing.
Baxter’s autobiography is fascinating because you can read the thoughts behind his plans, actions and concerns. Not only do you get an insight into the Puritan mind but also a survey of the society.
“Written on the Wind is a sweeping saga of a historical romance, enhanced by complex characters and riveting period detail. A fascinating read.”–MIMI MATTHEWS, USA Today bestselling author of The Siren of Sussex
He carries a dangerous secret, but can he survive long enough to expose it?
Count Dimitri Sokolov has been charged with overseeing construction of the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway, but during this work, he witnesses an appalling crime, the truth of which threatens the Russian monarchy. In an effort to silence him, the czar has stripped Dimitri of his title, his lands, and his freedom . . . but Dimitri has one asset the czar knows nothing about: his deep and abiding friendship with Natalia Blackstone.
Natalia is the lead analyst for her father’s New York banking empire and manages their investment in the Trans-Siberian Railway. Her bond with Dimitri has flourished despite the miles between them, but when Dimitri goes unexpectedly missing, she sets the wheels in motion to find him. Once they join forces, they embark on a dangerous quest in which one wrong move could destroy them both.
A unique and validating look at the tension you feel between disillusionment and a desire for truth, Searching for Enough helps you see your doubt not as an emotion to fear but as an invitation to be followed.
Do you ever find yourself thinking, “I’m not enough, and I’m never going to be. And I know I’m not supposed to say this, but God’s not enough for me either.”
Whether or not we attend church, deep down we wonder if the biblical story of faith is really enough for the complexity of the world in which we live. We fill our lives with other things, hoping that maybe the next experience or accomplishment will complete us. Yet with every goal we reach, we still feel discouraged and anxious.
In Searching for Enough, Pastor Tyler Staton draws on ancient and modern insights to introduce us, as if for the first time, to Jesus’ disciple Thomas: history’s most notorious skeptic. Like Thomas, we are caught between two unsatisfying stories: We want to believe in God but can’t reconcile his presence with our circumstances and internal struggles.
