In this secular day and age, it's refreshing to find a book that actually documents the Christianity, and more specifically the faith of our first president. After reading this great book, I came away knowing that George Washington was indeed a man of prayer who loved the Lord God with all his heart and soul. So many times he was found on his knees in prayer. And he demanded that his soldiers attend church services. He condemned profanity as well as gambling, wanting his soldiers to be Christians.
This secular world likes to say that George Washington was a deist. After reading Johnstone's book, there is no way you can come away with thinking for one second that he ever was anything but a God-fearing Christian.
For those who want to know the real George Washington, I recommend this book highly.
