“SOCIAL JUSTICE EXPOSED — LIBERALISM IN THE CLOAK OF CHRISTIANITY”
Glenn Beck: America? This is a book that every household should have … the book is an avalanche of information … discredits ‘all of the scholars’ … ‘best book on faith and the founding I’ve ever read.’ Beck interviewed Peter Lillback, President of the Westminster Theological Seminary and author of Sacred Fire.
What sets “George Washington’s Sacred Fire” apart from all previous works on this man for the ages, is the exhaustive fifteen years of Dr. Peter Lillback’s research, revealing a unique icon driven by the highest of ideals. Only do George Washington’s own writings, journals, letters, manuscripts, and those of his closest family and confidants reveal the truth of this awe-inspiring role model for all generations. Dr. Lillback paints a picture of a man, who, faced with unprecedented challenges and circumstances, ultimately drew upon his persistent qualities of character – honesty, justice, equity, perseverence, piety, forgiveness, humility, and servant leadership, to become one of the most revered figures in world history. George Washington set the cornerstone for what would become one of the most prosperous, free nations in the history of civilization. Through this book, Dr. Lillback, assisted by Jerry Newcombe, will reveal to the reader a newly inspirational image of General and President George Washington.
An enlightening, engaging, and long overdue correction of the falsehood that Washington lacked faith.

Dr. Lillback burries the myth that Washington was an unbeliever – at most a “deist” – under an avalanche of facts . . . .
— Robert P. George, Princeton University
Ten appendices cover the rules of civility and decent behavior that Washington abided by, as well as representative biblical quotations and allusions that Washington used all of the time. The other appendices cover sermons, and other prayers by others that were impacting to Washington.
The book confronts the liberal revisionist history that faith was not a part of the founding of the United States of America.
