The second book in Peter Marshall's and David Manuel's God's Plan for America trilogy, this revised account of the years 1787 to 1837 will rivet you to the page. After the Revolutionary War, America was growing. Was God intervening on behalf of the struggling nation, or the natural outpouring of technological and social changes? The authors make the case that America's future was threatened by greed, pride, and self-righteousness, but in the midst of turmoil, God raised up leaders to uniquely shape our country and character. This is the story of a country moving forward--but always with an eye on the Christian heritage of the past. 475 indexed pages, softcover.
