About the Author
Lucile Johnston is a scholar with the enchanting gift of southern storytelling who has delighted readers for decades. Johnston was a forerunner in the movement to reclaim our Christian heritage and has been engaged across the country as the featured speaker for Professional Women’s Groups, Christian Women’s Clubs, Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs, and numerous radio and television programs.
Her first two books, The Space Secret of the Universe and Will We Find Our Way: A Space Age Odyssey are delightful and deeply moving accounts of personal and cultural transformation during the development and height of the U.S. space program.
With Celebrations of a Nation, Johnston gives us a compelling, thoroughly researched history of the Christian origins of American democracy and our foundation of faith. Her newly revised edition adds more insightful material and an Index, in addition to the previous editions’ References and Bibliography. The author’s story–telling skills turn history from merely an accounting of facts into engaging and meaningful adventures through time.
