Description

Against the backdrop of world history shines the unprecedented Christlike selflessness of George Washington who twice chose life on the farm over concentration of power. Joseph in Egypt; the Judges of Israel; Josiah in Judah; Alexander the Great; Julius Caesar and the Roman Republic; Muhammad; the Crusades; the trade routes east and west by land and sea to the Orient and the Americas; the Vikings, Aztecs, Spaniards and British; Oliver Cromwell; Jan (John) Sobieski; Presidents Madison, Harrison and Coolidge; Hegel; Hitler and Marx; FDR and LBJ; the 9/11 Crisis ... Federer highlights the way each of these has played a part in giving us, who live at this time in history, a clearly defined choice to make between selfishness or self government: the centralization of power or the use of our liberty to serve one another in love.
