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. This fascinating narrative!

Recommendations:

SusanRushing- Former homeschooler and  Current teacher at Cornerstone Academy writes: 

"If you were to read only one book in order to understand the basis of our form of government, The Story of Liberty would be it.  It tells the story of the Reformation in Europe which made possible the principles of freedom and self-government upon which our nation was established.

"But it is no dry history text.  It reads like a novel, bringing to life the amazing events and fascinating people who fought and sacrificed for the liberty we now enjoy.  I have read it for pure pleasure myself and also used it in teaching American history to my own children at home and in the classroom.  It instills a love for history and an appreciation for what we have as Americans."

From Nancy Drazga, Great Christian Books Editor...

"First published in 1879, The Story of Liberty has been reprinted for today's families who have lost the knowledge of the Christian foundations of the American struggle for freedom . . .The many black and white illustrations and commentary on the tale provided by the author make this book indispensable for readers of all ages.

"Even young children will enjoy having bits of the narrative read to them, and adults as well as children will find through reading this book that the drama of history really is better than any novel! Highly recommended."

  1. Understanding The Founder's Motive Helps Us Understand the Future! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2011

    This book was written in 1879 and reflects a common interpretation 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 analyze our own cultures assumptions and beliefs.


  2. I wish I read this in school! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2011

    I read this for pleasure, not for home schooling. It was outstanding! A fast and easy read, easily relating together the events over the past 700 years. Coffin clearly illustrates the slow struggle of the human race towards freedom ... tying events together in a literary time-line. With such a clear conception of the tyrants of the past, one can't help but draw parallels with contemporary tyrants. I wish I had read this when I was in school. I am recommending it to all of my friends
