THE INSPIRED GENERALSHIP OF THE PEASANT GIRL OF LORRAINE
England and France had long been fighting over the domination of much of the French countryside by the time that St. Joan of Arc was born to a devout peasant family in the northeastern part of France. Despite her humble beginnings, this young girl was destined to change the course of history, and ultimately act to prevent France from falling into Henry VIII's schism less than 100 years after her death.
This magnificent recording by Mr. Check will bring to life this fascinating, but often complex story of the Hundred Years War, the checkered political map of France, the visions and sanctity of St. Joan, and most importantly, a deep understanding of the effect of Providence upon the lives of men. This is one story you will not want to miss!
The author, Christopher Check graduated from Rice University with a degree in Literature before serving for seven years as a Marine Corps officer in expeditions in the Far East and the Persian Gulf.
