Spiritual Themes from the Life of Alexander Hamilton & the Broadway Musical He Inspired

Alexander Hamilton’s transformation from forgotten founding father to cultural icon occurred with breathtaking speed. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s unprecedented musical, Hamilton, brought this story to the center of our cultural consciousness. Hamilton has reached a level of cultural significance rarely experienced by historical figures or Broadway musicals. The ground-breaking Broadway musical resonates deeply with audiences because it offers a transcendent experience, reminding us of spiritual truths that draw us into the holy presence of God.

God and Hamilton explores the spiritual nature of Alexander Hamilton’s story. Hamilton’s story represents a story of grace, shame, brokenness, forgiveness, death, and ultimately redemption. The creative intersection of Hamilton’s story, the story of Scripture, and the story of our lives will spur imagination and give birth to hope. Readers will experience new insights into the power of these core truths of the spiritual life. Ultimately, readers will be challenged to transform their lives as a response to this deeply spiritual story.
