This is the expanded second edition of America in God's Providence, now available in two volumes.  

Here is the definitive Christian Worldview History covering the five-hundred year story of America, beginning with Christopher Columbus in 1492 and ending with the Post-Christian America in 2023. It is an epochal story of the rise and decline of the most powerful nation on earth. . . the United States of America.

The story of America stands out in the history of the world. In George Washington's words, it is the story of 'remarkable interpositions of Divine Providence.' It is the unique story of an experiment in freedom in a world that is filled with tyranny. It is the story of how a nation honored God, and then it didn't. It is the story of the rise and the decline of a Republic.

Finally! Here is a Christian worldview approach to American history that teaches reverence for the Almighty, and gives God the glory on every page! This wholly-unique approach to history is essential for the Christian student. This 10th-12th grade level American History Text presents history as Christians must understand it. We bring God's providential hand into practically every page. We honor Christ as Lord over all. We include hundreds upon hundreds of Scriptural texts, so the student will learn as much about God's Word and its relevance for life as they will learn about American history.

Worldviews matter when it comes to history. The wrong history books will ignore the influence of Jesus Christ and render dishonor to the Lord Jesus Christ and His church throughout the ages. These books will fail to capture the real story of what is going on. Indeed, history is really and truly 'His Story.' We can call it 'God's story' because God is directing all events on the stage of human history. This is what should make the story so interesting. There is something exciting going on, because God is writing the story.

In this seminal work on American History from a Christian worldview, Generations presents this Christian interpretation of America's story.

We provide a 1 year plan and a 2 year plan for the high school student, who wants to master the history of America from a Christian worldview perspective.
