Overview What Liberty has Cost and What it Is Worth! The Story of Liberty: Written in 1879, Before the Progressive Rewrites! Yes, it's True! Our History was re-written in the early 20th Century by Progressives who wanted to erase the Christian Foundation of our nation from our history books! Now you can read what they did not want you to know! In his introduction to this book, Christian author and jornalist , Charles Coffin writes: "Men act freely in laying and executing their plans, but behind the turmoil and conflict of human wills there is an Unseen Power that shapes destiny. Nations rise and fall, generations come and go; yet through the ages there has been an advancement of Justice, Truth, Right and Liberty. To what end? Is it not the march of the human race toward an Eden of rest and peace?" This is an engrossing history of the people and key events that led to American self rule, and America's great freedoms and is the heritage of anyone enjoying freedom in any nation in the world. You will discover: How the Invention of the Printing Press and the Translation of the Bible into the Common Language from Latin led to the Development of the ideas of Freedom of Religion, Speech, Thought, Press, and Economic Prosperity How the Right to hold an Individual Opinion was a Freedom won through Preaching the Word of God How Religious Pesecution in Europe Led to the Founding of Our Nation How the Protestant Reformation's Insistence on the Priesthood of the Believer, Led to Foundation of Our Christian Republic Begins with the Signing of the Magna Carta 1215 and Shows How Our Liberty was Won Through the Work and Sacrifice of followers of Jesus and Christian Martyr's Concludes with Fifty Pilgrims sailing to the Shores of North America to Start a New World where Freedom to Worship God would be the Heritage of All A classic reference in the Christian education and home schooling communities, The Story of Liberty is a must-read for anyone eager for a view of history unedited by secular humanists.

Get a new perspective Jan 12, 2006
This book was written in 1879 and reflects a common intrepratation of English history at the time. Indeed, it is very similar to the view the founding fathers took of the events covered in this history. All too often, it is assumed that modern interpretations of history are somehow objective and unbiased. All historians write from their worldview, and there is nothing that says a naturalist/atheistic perspective is somehow more valid than the perspective that God directs that events of history for a purpose. The latter view is much closer to what was held by many of the people (Reformers, Pilgrims, & Catholics) that this history is about, and therefore, in my opinion, is capable of a deeper understanding of the motivation of these people to act against injustice. It is by reading books written by people in ages other than our own that we gain the perspective necessary to analize our own cultures assumptions and beliefs.
NOT a history book!! Dec 4, 2003
This book should be placed in the historical fiction section. It is NOT a history book! The author was so skewed and biased that it was laughable. I would not recommend that this book be used for any serious history class. His portrayal of the Roman Catholic Church was very biased as he narrated his own perspective on history. It was hard to take him very seriously because of his own personal prejudices. Homeschoolers beware!
