Experience the true story from American history about the spiritual roots and historical beginnings of Thanksgiving.


This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a twelve-year-old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims landed in a strange new world.

Whether it's essays, reviews, satire, or even poetry, Eric is a master communicator with the written word. He has even worked on Veggie Tales! His works have been translated into over twenty languages.

Eric is extensively involved in broadcasting, hosting his own syndicated radio program The Eric Metaxas Show since 2015, featuring in-depth interviews with high profile guests. He has also appeared on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News as a cultural commentator. He is an in-demand speaker internationally, and has delivered addresses at the White House, West Point, and many universities; he has also moderated public debates involving such high profile - and controversial - figures as Bishop John Spong, Peter Singer; and Bart Ehrman.

The American Booksellers Association chose Metaxas's The Birthday ABC as a 1995 Pick of the List and Amazon.com honored his Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving with their Number One Bestseller Award for Thanksgiving 1999.
