9781496406026: God & Churchill: How the Great Leader's Sense of Divine Destiny Changed His Troubled World and Offers Hope for Ours

When Winston Churchill was a boy of sixteen, he already had a vision for his purpose in life. “This country will be subjected somehow to a tremendous invasion . . . I shall be in command of the defences of London . . . it will fall to me to save the Capital, to save the Empire.”

It was a most unlikely prediction. Perceived as a failure for much of his life, Churchill was the last person anyone would have expected to rise to national prominence as prime minister and influence the fate of the world during World War II. But Churchill persevered, on a mission to achieve his purpose. God and Churchill tells the remarkable story of how one man, armed with belief in his divine destiny, embarked on a course to save Christian civilization when Adolf Hitler and the forces of evil stood opposed. It traces the personal, political, and spiritual path of one of history’s greatest leaders and offers hope for our own violent and troubled times.

More than a spiritual biography, God and Churchill is also a deeply personal quest. Written by Jonathan Sandys (Churchill’s great-grandson) and former White House staffer Wallace Henley, God and Churchill explores Sandys’ intense search to discover his great-grandfather―and how it changed his own destiny forever.

About the Author :

Jonathan Sandys is a great-grandson of Britain's wartime Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and is a public speaker. He has been communicating the morals, values, and leadership skills of his great-grandfather and those of the "Greatest Generation" to both young and old alike. Jonathan lives in Texas.

As a young aide in the Nixon White House, Henley became intrigued with the unseen forces behind the dynamics of nations. A conversation with Dr. Billy Graham regarding the clustering of demonic principalities around focal points of human power like the presidency opened Wallace s eyes. Following the collapse of communism, Henley conducted workshops throughout the former Soviet Bloc, and his understanding of the cosmic powers revealed in the Bible deepened. Now Senior Associate Pastor at Houston s 64,000-member Second Baptist Church and Adjunct Professor in Worldview Studies at Belhaven University, Wallace Henley teaches and writes often about the Spillover effect of the conflict between the Kingdom of God and the dominion of darkness. His column, Critical Confluences, appears regularly in The Christian Post, the world s largest online Christian news publication. Henley is the author of more than 20 books, several in collaboration with Dr. Ed Young.

James Baker was White House Chief of Staff and Secretary of the Treasury under President Ronald Reagan. He also served as White House Chief of Staff and Secretary of State under President George H.W. Bush. Mr. Baker is now Honorary Chair of the James Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University.

Review :

Having witnessed firsthand how God moves to influence major events in the world for the good of his people, I cannot imagine anyone better suited to tell the story of God’s work in the life and times of Churchill than Churchill’s own flesh and blood. Jonathan Sandys brings an unparalleled vibrancy and perspective on the great man and his times. He and Wallace Henley have artfully woven together the best-known and most obscure pieces of history to present the beautiful and compelling tapestry that is God and Churchill. An absolute must-read. (Joanne King Herring, International diplomat, author, and president/CEO of the Marshall Plan Charities)

Great leaders, and the times and circumstances in which they served, have long fascinated me. Winston Churchill has been of special interest to me for many years. I have read books about the British wartime leader, but they always seem to leave out a critical element. But Jonathan Sandys and Wallace Henley have captured it in this book. At last we have a detailed presentation not only of Churchill’s legendary exploits but also of the inner dynamic that compelled him with a vision for “Christian civilization” and an iron will to defend it at all costs. Sandys and Henley, to use a Churchillian idea, have brought the inspiration and lessons of the past into our present for the sake of the future. This is a must-read for our critical times. (Ed Young, Senior pastor, Second Baptist Church, Houston)

I have known four generations of the Churchill family. The noblest remaining of that family is Jonathan Sandys. He has both the vision and the voice to carry forth the legacy of his great-grandfather and is well worthy to offer this account of Churchill’s life and faith. God and Churchill has earned a place next to the greatest of books ever written on the master statesman. (James C. Humes, Author and former presidential speech writer)

A fascinating and well-argued book that adds a vital, missing component to understanding Churchill. As a lifelong admirer who as a boy met Churchill and who has read widely on his life, I was curious to know what Sandys and Henley would present as evidence. I was not only convinced but delighted at the realism and relevance of their portrayal of Churchill. He emerges as anything but ardently religious, but he was more personally aware of his destiny and more biblically literate and attuned to the Christian worldview and Christian civilization than many Christians today. (Os Guiness, author of A Free People's Suicide)

What a wonderfully enthusiastic book, written with the insights of a great-grandson of Winston Churchill who understands his great ancestor in unique and special ways. Jonathan is a fine Christian who grasps the spiritual dimensions of Churchill’s life and the struggle against the pure evil of Nazi tyranny. How fabulous, too, to see Churchill’s godly Christian nanny, Elizabeth Everest, given her true place in her charge’s life. And there is no doubt: It was Churchill as prime minister in 1940 who not only saved Britain from defeat but saved Christian civilization itself, as Jonathan and Wallace make so very clear. This is a book for Christians as well as for Churchill enthusiasts. Thank God for Jonathan’s ministry and historical perspective. (Dr. Christopher Catherwood, Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, Churchill Archives By-Fellow emeritus)

A graphic portrayal of the life and legacy of Winston Churchill, with emphasis on his guiding belief in divine providence. Long before “the clash of civilizations” had become a common term, Churchill knew what it meant and spent his life defending the civilization so decisively shaped by the Christian faith. A fascinating study! (Timothy George, Founding dean of Beeson Divinity School)
