In one of the bleakest hours of the war, January 20, 1940, Winston Churchill addressed England in a radio broadcast, painting a picture of hope using words from John 14: “The Day will come when. . . victorious nations. . .will plan and build in justice, in tradition, and in freedom a house of many mansions where there will be room for all.”
Churchill’s speeches often used biblical language and style.
In an interview for the book, “God and Churchill,” co-authored by his great-grandson, Jonathan Sandys said “Churchill had read the Bible throughout many times.”
Iin Churchill’s own words, written in 1941, he said: “The more closely we follow the Sermon on the Mount, the more likely we are to succeed in our endeavors.”
