Miracles of the American Revolution: Divine Intervention and the Birth of the Republic Reviews
Miracles of the American Revolution by Larkin SpiveyGod and Country press, 2010174 pagesNon-fiction; Christian; History3.5/5 starsSource: Received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewSummary: Spivey makes the argument that God has had an intimate hand in the history of the United States, specifically to make America an independent country and prepare it for future greatness.Part of his argument seemed to be that because the Founders believed that God was causing the so-called miraculous events, then that means He was. That's not an argument that I agree with. The other part is that events that could have ended one way ended in the specific way they did because of God.

John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, and George Washington are the obvious ones included but so is John Witherspoon, notable preacher and influencer of Madison. I felt his inclusion was less justified. Also receiving brief biographies are the main men on the side of the British, which I appreciated because I didn't really learn their names beyond King George III in school.His overall point is that the greatness of America stems from its freedom of religion. God offers everyone the opportunity to come to Him and perhaps He is bringing about a spiritual revival during these difficult times.Overall: I'm still skeptical.
This book was written by a Catholic who tells some pretty incredible stories (i.e. miracles) which lead to the winning of the Revolutionary War.
A responsible treatise on the actualities of the hand of God in the formation of the United States. May it ever be so.
