In God’s Hand on America, national radio host and bestselling author of The American Miracle reveals the happy accidents, bizarre coincidences and flat-out miracles that continue to shape America’s destiny. In this provocative historical narrative, Michael
Medved brings to life ten haunting tales that reveal this purposeful pattern, including:
- A near-fatal carriage accident forces Lincoln’s secretary of state into a canvas-and-steel neck brace that protects him from a would-be assassin’s knife thrusts, allowing him two years later to acquire Alaska for the United States.
- A sudden tidal wave of Russian Jewish immigration, beginning in 1881, coincides with America’s rise to world leadership, fulfilling a biblical promise that those blessing Abraham’s children will themselves be blessed.
- Campaigning for president, Theodore Roosevelt takes a bullet in the chest, but a folded speech in his jacket pocket slows its progress and saves his life.
These and other little-known stories build on themes of The American Miracle, Medved’s bestseller about America’s remarkable rise. The confident heroes and stubborn misfits in these pages shared a common faith in a master plan, which continues to unfold in our time. God’s Hand on America con-firms that the founders were right about America’s destiny to lead and enlighten the world.
