Light and the Glory by David Manuel, Peter Marshall. I bought this book at a friend's recommendation

Light and the Glory by David Manuel, Peter Marshall. This book quotes from historical writings, personal journals and papers, giving a first person view of many of our country's famous events and the people who risked everything to play their part in our nation's history. It is eye opening to see how deeply our founding fathers and others believed in God. Of course, there were some out for greed and power, most were not. This is not the history you currently learn in schools or in the media. оставлен godsmunchkin02.

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?

Excellent read on the founding of America (1492-1787). Marshall and Manuel do an excellent job at analyzing the causes behind the effects that resulted in America's birth as a nation. To this end the authors looked to ascertain the moral principles operating in the lives of the significant players, and how these influenced their thoughts and actions, and thus the effect it had on their individual lives and more generally the communal bodies. In the end it is made clear that the successful religious, intellectual, and social lives of the Puritans and the Pilgrims came to serve as the basic model for the American way of life. And without this model America would not be what it is. The authors are able to strip circumstances to the fewest and most significant variables thus revealing the hand of Israel's God working in the lives of people and specific events, with the result being America's emergence as the greatest and most successful experiment in modeling a society on the principles of God's Kingdom, and thus a free people where all are created equal.

Probably the most interesting thing revealed by the book is the linear relationship between cause and effect. The degree to which people pursue the will of God and the desire to practice the principles of His Kingdom, is the degree to which society works well. The more self-serving and hedonistic people become, the more society begins to reflect the "jungle" rather than the "Kingdom." A corollary is how easily this guiding rule is lost when distracted by all the clamoring of life's various egregious sensual offerings and indulgences (unbridled dissipation of the libido, recreational drug use, the unchecked want of material things, addiction to extreme adrenaline rush, etc.). Unless specifically guarded against, the inexorable outcome is toward corruption and thus toward the "jungle" of life. Simply put, man becomes a bottom feeder. Thus the state of America as a nation is but a reflection of which has the upper hand in the battle for the focus of the mind.

All-in-all, a very illuminating and engaging read on American history.

Excellent book on the history leading up to the formation of America and how God led men to create her. This is not an easy read, but it is full of material to think on. The authors (now gone to their reward in heaven) did a terrific job with this subject. Don't let mainstream media try to tell you that the signers of the Declaration of Independence did not believe in God or Christianity. Here is solid scholarly research presented from those signers own hand-written letters and from others that knew them that say they did believe. Looking forward to reading the next two books in this series.

I had actually purchased the 2nd and 3rd books of this 3 part series and absolutely loved reading them!! When I was finally able to find the 1st in the series I did not hesitate to purchase it!! There is so much history in these books, the authors were extremely resourceful in their research, that I learned things I never knew and even after re-reading them always found something new I had missed!! The faith-based influx into the writing is superb and really puts things into perspective, but putting that aspect aside, these books are a joy to read for all ages!!! I highly recommend getting all three books...they are a great read!!

Excellent book, the research about our nation is amazing. Everyone who is a citizen of the USA, or who is interested in the founding of our country needs to read this book. It will make you appreciate your citizenship; and will see God's providential Hand on this country. It doesn't just show all good, it discloses how flaws as well as when we humble ourselves and follow His plan.
  • Doath
One amazing read! This is a history book that reads like a novel and has you on the edge of your seat. TRUE history. It does not apologize or try to hide the fact that our nation was built on the freedom to practice faith in God, not faith separate from God. Well researched. Will change the way you view reading history books! Should be a mandatory read for all voting Americans.

This is at least the third time I have bought this book to give away. It presents an account of North American history, from the early explorers (Spanish, French and English) to the United States of America's founding. It emphasizes the godly influences which brought about the USA.

My favorite takeaway regards the 2 early Atlantic settlements: "Jamestown founders came for GOLD" (meaning riches), while "the Pilgrims came for GOD" (escaping persecution from the established Church in England).

Illuminating correction by famed American & author Peter Marshall thrillingly correcting current US history revisionism, with breathtaking aerial of God's point of view & providence, enabling greater appreciation of Spanish, French, & English missionaries/visionaries & God's support of our founding father's & revolutionaries who gave all to create our Bible-based beacon of freedom new nation unlike any other in man's short history. See the version for youth too.

To quote the 2nd verse of the Star Spangled Banner: "& thus be it ever where free men shall stand between our loved homes & wars' desolations. Blessed w/ victory & peace, may this Heaven's rescued land bless the Power that has made & preserved US our nation. Conquer we must when our cause is so just; & thus be our motto: "In God Is Our Trust. Oh say does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave o'er the land of the free & the home of the brave?"
