"Did Columbus believe that God called him west to undiscovered lands? Does American democracy owe its inception to the handful of Pilgrims that settled at Plymouth? If, indeed, there was a specific, divine call upon this nation, is it still valid today? The Light and the Glory answers these questions and many more for anyone interested in the founding of the "great experiment" called America. As you consider our nation's history as a part of God's plan, you will begin to have an idea of how much we owe to a very few--and how much is still at stake. Now revised and expanded for the first time in thirty years, The Light and the Glory is the perfect handbook to our nation's beginnings--and its future. Peter Marshall has gained national recognition as a preacher and teacher on Christian maturity. A graduate of Yale University and Princeton Theological Seminary, he lives in Massachusetts. David Manuel is the author or coauthor of several books, including Like a Mighty River and The Jesus Factor. He is a graduate of Yale University and lives in Massachusetts."
I already have a copy of this great book for teaching history. If you would like this one, just leave me a comment. A random generator will pick who receives the book! I will close this out on Monday, as I know many of you are busy right now celebrating Christmas!
