For three decades the WHI has been researching and teaching the “cause and effect” paper-trail of personal liberty and human rights; of private enterprise and constitutional government; and of charity and the explosion of faith around the world. The Institute embraces the providential view of history, which observes history as a purposeful saga under the direction of a loving Creator. This historical perspective has been the dominant view of Western Civilization from the time of Augustine in the 4th century A.D. to the 20th century.
All of the resources, articles, conferences and tours of the World History Institute are created to help you in your quest to understand the world and its meaning.
Winston Churchill, the eminent statesman and historian of the 20th century, said “The greatest advances in human civilization have come when we recovered what we had lost: when we learned the lessons of history.” Like Churchill – who was faced with a great depression and then Nazi tyranny – we now face a world in economic chaos and at the brink of worldwide ideological war. We can stare down the evils of our time, as Churchill did, and see good triumph over evil and a better day for ourselves and our children’s children.
We hope you will be greatly encouraged by the powerful untold stories of history that are found in our DVD series, CDs, books, conferences and tours. These stories clearly document the fact that each individual has a vital role to play in shaping the future of the world. It is not power-seekers, tyrants and celebrities that lead the way in building successful and good civilizations. It has always been the outnumbered, principled people of faith who have led the way to freedom by following the universal, biblical principles of nation-building.
Thank you for visiting the World History Institute website.
We hope you will become a friend and join us in the great cause of spreading the liberating lessons of history with people in your community and nation. Together, following God’s wisdom, we can build a more prosperous and free world for coming generations.
