HAS GOD WITHDRAWN HIS SPECIAL BLESSINGS FROM THE UNITED STATES?

Americans ponder that painful question in troubled times. Yet somehow - on battle- fields, across western wildernesses, and in raucous convention halls - astounding events have reliably advanced America, restoring faith in the Republic's providential protection. 

This book builds on themes of The American Miracle, Medved's bestseller about America's remarkable rise. The confident heroes and stabborn misfits in these pages shared a common faith in a master plan, which cotinues to unfold in our time. 

In this sweeping and provocative historical narrative, Michael Medved brings to life ten haunting tales that reveal this purposeful pattern, including:

- A near-fatal carriage accident winds up saving Lincoln's secretary of state, just barely allowing him, two years later, to acquire Alaska for the United States.

- A sudden tital wave of Russian Jewish immigration, beginning in 1881, coincides with American's rise to world leadership, fulfilling a biblical promise that those blessing Abrahams's children will themselves be blessed. 

- Campaigning for present, Theordore Roosevelt taks a bullet in the chest, but a folded speech in his jacket pocket slows its progress and saves his life.

- The unlikely Democratic plot to replace FDR's sitting vice president- an unstable Stalinist- with future White House great Harry Trueman proves a fateful success.
