              In the first of two books on the topic, conservative radio host with 5 million daily listeners and bestselling author Michael Medved discovers amazements in early American history that each suggest an intelligent design to America's story, making the case that Divine Providence h...as steered crucial turns in the nation's story, and will again. America is a uniquely great nation, but does its power and prosperity stem from accidents of history, or the fulfillment of some pre-destined master plan? In The American Miracle, conservative radio host and best-selling author Michael Medved describes a stunning series of amazements in early American history that each suggest an intelligent design a higher power that has steered crucial turns in our nation's story, and will again. In the first of two books, The American Miracle traces the grace that shaped twelve decisive moments in our history from the desperate passengers of the Mayflower who were blown off course to the one spot in the region that gave them a fair chance for survival, to the casual discovery of three cigars wrapped in handwritten notes that assured Union victory in the Civil War. Sometimes Medved reveals the providential nature of well-known incidents, and at others he focuses on an unknown historical event that had long-term impact. This sweeping and engrossing historical narrative proves that to sustain our unparalleled power and world presence, America must understand the purpose that placed her at the forefront of history and rise to the challenge of that fateful mandate.

              LUCKY . . .OR BLESSED? The history of the United States displays an uncanny pattern: At moments of crisis, when the odds against success seem overwhelming and disaster looks imminent, fate intervenes to provide deliverance and progress. Historians may categorize these incidents a...s happy accidents, callous crimes, or the product of brilliant leadership, but the most notable leaders of the past four hundred years have identified this good fortune as something else--a reflection of divine providence. In The American Miracle, bestselling author and radio host Michael Medved recounts some of the most significant events in America's rise to prosperity and power, from the writing of the Constitution to the Civil War. He reveals a record of improbabilities and amazements that demonstrate what the Founders always believed: that events unfolded according to a master plan, with destiny playing an unmistakable role in lifting the nation to greatness. Among the stirring, illogical episodes described here: - A band of desperate religious refugees find themselves blown hopelessly off course, only to be deposited at the one spot on a wild continent best suited for their survival - George Washington's beaten army, surrounded by a ruthless foe and on the verge of annihilation, manages an impossible escape due to a freakish change in the weather - A famous conqueror known for seizing territory, frustrated by a slave rebellion and a frozen harbor, impulsively hands Thomas Jefferson a tract of land that doubles the size of the United States - A weary soldier picks up three cigars left behind in an open field and notices the stogies have been wrapped in a handwritten description of the enemy's secret battle plans--a revelation that gives Lincoln the supernatural sign he's awaited in order to free the slaves When millions worry over the nation losing its way, Medved's sweeping narrative, bursting with dramatic events and lively portraits of unforgettable, occasionally little-known charact

              CAN YOU ANSWER THE MOST COMMON ATTACKS AGAINST CAPITALISM? Talk radios Michael Medved, bestselling author of The 10 Big Lies About America, sets the record straight about the free-market system and the destructive distortions of its most determined detractors. WHY FEEL EMBARRASSE...D BY BUSINESS? Every American benefits every day from the phenomenal productivity of the free market, so why do so many people feel guilty or skeptical about our business system? In this passionately argued, eye-opening book, talk-radio star and bestselling author Michael Medved provides detailed and devastating rebuttals to the most widely circulated smears against capitalism. BIG LIE: When the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. TRUTH: When successful people earn more money, it doesnt mean less of anythingand in fact means more growth, more investment, more jobs. Creating wealth doesnt cause poverty, it brings progress. There is no such thing as obscene profitsonly obscene losses. BIG LIE: Government is more fair and reliable than business. TRUTH: Official bureaucracies never make money, they only take money thats been earned in the private sector by giving people some product that they choose to buy. The free marketplace allows individual choices every day, but government permits only group decisions by big electorates every few years. BIG LIE: The recent financial crisis means the death of capitalism. TRUTH: This isnt the first or worst downturn in the nations history, and the economy will come roaring back, as always, with enhanced efficiency. Socialists have celebrated the imminent death of capitalism for nearly 200 yearswhile big government experiments everywhere faced collapse or reform. Present pain cant erase the growth thats given Americans privileges and possibilities our own grandparents couldnt imagine. MYTH: Big business is bad, small business is good. TRUTH: Every big business began life as a small business, and every small business today yearns for enough success to become

              It aint so much the things we dont know that get us into trouble, nineteenth-century humorist Josh Billings remarked. Its the things we know that just aint so. In this bold and brilliantly argued book, acclaimed author and talk-radio host Michael Medved zeroes in on ten of the bi...ggest fallacies that millions of Americans believe about our countryin spite of incontrovertible facts to the contrary. In The 10 Big Lies About America, Medved pinpoints the most pernicious pieces of America-bashing disinformation that pollute current debates about the economy, race, religion in politics, the Iraq war and other contentious issues. The myths that Medved deftly debunks include: Myth: The United States is uniquely guilty for the crime of slavery and based its wealth on stolen African labor. Fact: The colonies that became the United States accounted for, at most, 3 percent of the abominable international slave trade; the persistence of slavery in America slowed economic progress; and the U.S. deserves unique credit for ending slavery. Myth: The alarming rise of big business hurts the United States and oppresses its people. Fact: Corporations played an indispensable role in building America and corporate growth has brought progress that benefits all with cheaper goods and better jobs. Myth: The Founders intended a secular, not Christian, nation. Fact: Even after ratifying the Constitution, fully half the state governments endorsed specific Chris-tian denominations. And just a day after approving the First Amendment, forbidding the establishment of religion, Congress called for a national day of public thanksgiving and prayer to acknowledge the many signal favors of Almighty God. Myth: A war on the middle class means less comfort and opportunity for the average American. Fact: Familiar campaign rhetoric about the victimized middle class ignores the overwhelming statistical evidence that the standard of living keeps rising for every segment of the population, as well as the real-l
