Publisher's Summary

"America, America, God shed His grace on thee...." 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, many more. As we look at our nation's history from God's point of view, we begin to have an idea of how much we owe a very few, and how much is still at stake.

The great history of God's Covenant with America from Columbus through Washington's Presidency. A well researched and well written book, should be required reading for all citizens and high school seniiors in this country. The narrator was only average but articulate and is not a hinderance. The book spends a long time on discovery and the early settlements, telling stories unfortunately not often told. A must read for all Christians. Would make a great Sunday School series. Please do not let my verbal inadequacies hinder your purchase, as I believe the authors to have been inspired by the Lord. A story that needs to be known and shared, more now than ever. Learn, enjoy and share what you discover.

Lost and Found

This audio recording of Peter Marshal and David Manuel's "The Light and the Glory" retells the true history of America and its Christian heritage through the choices made by the men and women who formed it. It is a work of astonishing depth and clarity and meaning which should not be overlooked.
