Written by Peter Lillback president of Westminster Theological Seminary, and requiring more than 15 years to research and write, Lillback in George Washington's Sacred Fire directly challenges the claims of revisionist historians that George Washington was a dedicated deist.
Since the 1930's the belief that Washington was a dedicated Christian has been largely out of vogue among colonial era and presidential scholars. This was in large part the accomplishment of one book, a book that often failed to cite Washington's work were necessary, and patently ignored or lied about items in Washington's writings and correspondence indicating a deep belief in the Christian faith.
Lillback aims to set the record straight by providing a detailed examination of Washington's letters and writings, as well as Washington's historic milieu. Lillback shows that much of what has been used to justify the argument of Washington as deist is rooted in a poor understanding of his historical context, and what Washington himself did and wrote.
