The American Covenant

The Untold Story


By Marshall Foster

First place Christian Indie Awards for Christian Education!

As our national fabric unravels before a watching world, the unanswered question of the twenty-first century cries for a response: What happened to the America that once led the world by example?

To put it bluntly, we have forgotten the covenant that our Founders made with our Creator. Its very meaning has been canceled by a secular elite at war with the truth.

The American Covenant: The Untold Story documents in exciting and vivid detail the Biblically based principles and personalities that formed the foundation for America’s economic, governmental, legal, educational, and spiritual institutions. The brilliant strategy of our Founders is contained in this volume and is providing hope for families and nations worldwide.

As seen on Kirk Cameron’s American Campfire Revival. Foreword by Kirk Cameron.


Marshall Foster has a passion to teach Americans about our rich Christian legacy and the incredible impact of Christianity on Western civilization. I am honored to recommend his work.

Marshall Foster is a premier historian who has the unique gift of making history truly come alive. His passion to teach the Biblical source of America’s freedoms inspires all who hear him. “Covenant keepers win, and covenant breakers lose.” His writings open the door to personalities and events of the past in vivid color. He connects dots that make sense of current events, and he stirs the hearts of his readers to engage in the struggle to pass our liberties on to a promising future generation! Marshall personally inspired me many years ago. I purchased and devoured his books and tapes, and I can unequivocally say that he is significantly responsible for my career in writing and teaching American history! I highly recommend the work of Marshall Foster to every freedom-loving individual.

In the early 1980s, I read and taught Marshall Foster’s The American Covenant and am delighted it is updated, revised, and put back into print in 2021. Marshall has crisscrossed America for decades, passionately teaching our providential history, covenantal understanding, and Christian self-government.  These are articulated here in his book The American Covenant in a fresh way for a new generation in America. This book is truly a tool to give you a passion and deeper understanding that the prayer Jesus taught us might be fulfilled: “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Dr. Paul Jehle, President, Plymouth Rock Foundation

A friend laid a copy of The American Covenant on the table between a group of us, put her hand firmly on the cover, looked us square in the eye, and said, “This is exactly what America needs right now. The American people have to have this book.” She’s exactly right. We need the American Covenant right now. There is no better study suited to provide answers for the challenges we are facing today. Don’t miss the opportunity to own a book that will thrill your heart, bolster your courage, and inspire your thinking.

Charcie Russell, Radio Talk Show Host; Founder and Director of Development, MOPS International

The American Covenant: The Untold Story has changed the lives of so many people. I was one of the first people to read it. I started a school as part of our church ministry. Marshall’s book became the primary textbook for the students in U.S. History. It opens the reader’s eyes to the reality of America’s greatness and the reason for it: God!

The World History Institute
Marshall and his wife, Trish, established the World History Institute in 1976. Its mission is to reintroduce the forgotten Biblical and historical foundations of liberty to Americans and others around the world. The World History Institute has become a major force in the movement to restore America to its Judeo-Christian heritage.

The Institute has developed resources, seminars, and tours to benefit Americans of all backgrounds. Marshall Foster has taught our nation’s authentic history from primary sources, writings, and the worldview of America’s ancestors. Americans have responded with overwhelming enthusiasm and new hope that our republic can be restored. An Army of Compassion is rising up, working to heal the brokenhearted and to peacefully restore our nation.

There is a tidal wave of truth breaking into the mainstream of American thought. That wave is not a “socialist utopia”—it is what C. S. Lewis called the “clean sea breeze of the centuries,” which needs to be “blowing through our minds” to help us see beyond our existential moment. The prevailing wave of history is being driven by our loving Creator, whose plan has been the only proven one to bring lasting liberty to any nation. The World History Institute is grateful to be a part—along with other fine organizations—of inspiring a new generation to remember that “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

Kirk Cameron’s America’s Campfire Revival is an answer to the prayers of millions of Americans. It is lighting the kindling of a new Great Awakening. Kirk’s teaching through The American Covenant: The Untold Story is providing the hope and the strategy of our forebears needed for the peaceful restoration of our nation.
