Sintesi dell'editore

"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.

©1977 Peter Marshall and David Manuel (P)2001 Blackstone Audiobooks

Quite a stretch

First, I am not anti religion. In fact, I am a Christian.

This book is exactly the kind of writing that alienates people from Christianity. The authors attribute everything positive that happens to God---and everything bad to either God giving discipline or Satan defending "his continent" from godly conquest.

Jamestown incurred the wrath of God but the Pilgrims were blessed---only half of them died the first year because they were godly and kind to the Indians. Actually the Pilgrims stole food from the Indians and later started a significant war with the Indians---see King Phillips War.

This book not only distorts history---there is much in here that simply is not true---but it gets almost silly trying to make a very misguided point about the United States being truly "one" nation under God.

Occasionally you'll hear an interesting historical tidbit but more often you'll get hysterical bullsh-t.

The entire Pilgrim bit is riddled with nonsense. From their wiley negotiations (false) to God's choosing of where they were to set up shop---false---they were put off by the Mayflower's captain who did not wish to go to further south to Virginia where they were supposed to go.

If you want inspiration, I suppose you can ignore fact and justify your beliefs through this largely fabricated fable. But if you want history, look elsewhere. Start with 1492---a much better book, researched by an actual historian.

Sorry folks, this makes nice entertainment but so much of it is false it will probably do more harm than good.

Enlightening!!

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.

Clears Up A Lot of Pre-Colonial History

The book does an excellent job of presenting little known facts about who the original settlers were, how many different groups (and types) attempted to make a life in N America, and the timeline of events that links their successes & failures here. Some of them were treasure-hunters, some were looking for an easy way to make a new start (lazy and condescending), and some (the Pilgrims) were just interested in a new life without religious persecution. Not every group who came here was interested in cohabitation with the Indians, but some were. The book also details many differences between the tribes in America- some were obviously friendly, and there were quite a few who were predatory to everybody (including other Indians).

The book goes into some great detail about the miraculous events that resulted in the United States becoming a country.

Great read that connects the very real religious affiliations of the country into being. If you're either truly neutral, or of a Judeo-Christian background, this is very worthwhile.

Something I'd like to mention unrelated to the book, is the American Indian issue of displacement- there were more tribes and languages (over 1000) here than different peoples in Europe, and yet we think of all of them as "The Indians". We also think of CA, as former Mexican territory, stolen by the US. But the 'real Mexicans' were Aztecs who did not speak Spanish, and were wiped out by the Spaniards, so the whole issue of who was wronged is heavily dependent on who & when are we talking about? It doesn't excuse the 'sins' of those involved, but everybody's guilty if you go back far enough.

Outstanding resource for Christian Americana

This was an excellent book which in my opinion should be taught as a history lesson in schools. It reaffirms with great zeal what our country was founded upon, Christianity. The words as written and recorded by our forefathers tell all about there utmost belief in our savior Jesus Christ. Not to mention there view of why America was founded in the first place, you'll have to read the book to find out.
The narrator took me a little while to tune into his repitoire but once done he was easy to listen to. Would have been nice for a Guidall or the like to have read it. All in all I highly recommend it.

An excellent volume

This is a revealing look at American history and how God orchestrated the founding of this country. It tells stories not often told in school or other history books. I heartily recommend this book.

Incredible book

Where does The Light and the Glory rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best books I've listened to. It is not only enjoyable, but extremely enlightening about our nation's history.

Any additional comments?

I give this book my highest possible recommendation. I hope that audible releases the other two books of this series in unabridged form as well.

Excellent book on early America History.

This book on the early American History is a must. Did God have a plan for America? Read or listen to this book and make the decision yourself.
