SPIRIT OF A NATION explodes the myth of Australia as a country with a godless, secular history and reveals the untold story of how Christianity has decisively shaped our national identity and values.

With clarity and warmth, historian Stuart Piggin reveals surprising stories about:

The first fleet and the birth of the modern missionary movement

The frequency of local religious revivals in Australian history

Spiritual vitality and Christian compassion that defined cherished national traits like mateship, trade unionism, social welfare and aboriginal land rights

How the Billy Graham Crusade in 1959 was our own Great Awakening and much more.

This book restores Christianity to its rightful place in the development of Australia's character, identity and values and shows how God has been quietly working in "The Southland of the Holy Spirit"
