HILLSDALE, Mich., Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Few historical figures can teach us more about statesmanship than Sir Winston Churchill. In Churchill's Trial: Winston Churchill and the Salvation of Free Government, released Tuesday, Oct. 13 by Thomas Nelson publishers, Dr. Larry P. Arnn examines Churchill's unwavering defense of liberty in the face of Nazism, Soviet communism, and his own nation's drift toward socialism. As editor of Winston Churchill's official biography, Arnn draws from a deep knowledge to argue that Churchill's fight for liberty transcends into the 21st century.
"Churchill's trial is ultimately our trial," Arnn writes, "and we have a better chance to emerge victorious from ours because of the example of true statesmanship we have in Churchill. By understanding the challenges Churchill faced, we can better understand our own challenges and how to confront them. Having spent decades studying and learning from Winston Churchill, I look forward to telling a story that looks both to the past and the future."
