From 1492 when Columbus discovered America to the terrible events of September 11, 2001---learning what happened on important dates helps us better understand the world in which we live! Packed with brief, compelling accounts of historic happenings, Janney's resource offers glimpses of God at work in "secular" events. Ages 12 to adult. 320 pages, softcover from AMG.
SEE GOD AT WORK THROUGHOUT AMERICAN'S HISTORY
Knowing what happened on noteworthy dates is important because it helps us better understand the world in which we live. We can see God at work in those events individually and corporately because history belongs to the Creator of the Universe, and he has a clear plan and purpose for everything that happens.
Great Events in American History covers memorable dates of America's story in two-to-four pages. Using compelling anecdotes, the author puts events that seem merely secular at first glance into the context of God's activity, sometimes individually, other times nationally.
Rather than a dry recounting of historical facts and figures, Great Events in American History will draw the reader into a fascinating account of major happenings as it conveys what happened from both a temporal and eternal perspective.
