In this stirring biography, Samuel Adams is brought into the first tier of founding fathers—a rank, argues Ira Stoll, that he has long deserved. With eloquence equal to that of Thomas Jefferson and Tom Paine, and with a passionate love of God, Adams helped ignite the flame of liberty and fanned it even during the Revolution's darkest hours.

"In order to understand the moral and religious roots of America's zeal for liberty, you need to know and appreciate Samuel Adams. Ira Stoll does a glorious job bringing to life this agitated and revolutionary apostle of liberty, whose passions still reverberate in our nation's soul."—Walter Isaacson
