The Story of Liberty by Charles C. Coffin

For much of history humankind has been oppressed.

We have suffered religious persecution, the tyranny of cruel monarchs, and suffered untold horrors due to war and famine.

Yet, the modern world now has greater freedom than ever before.

So how did this rise of liberty occur?

Charles Carleton Coffin’s fascinating work The Story of Liberty charts this remarkable progress.

The history begins with King John of England and the civil war that developed during his reign when many barons refused to suffer anymore of his tyranny and forced him to sign the Magna Carta.

From this starting point Coffin explains how various countries across Europe developed religious and political freedom in the subsequent centuries.

He explains how Martin Luther questioned the hierarchy of the church and his powerful ideas were spread across the continent through the invention of the printing press
