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 more for history buffs. As readers look at their nation's history from God's point of view, they will begin to have an idea of how much we owe to a very few--and how much is still at stake. Now revised and expanded for the first time in more than thirty years, The Light and the Glory is poised to show new readers just how special their country is.

Adapted for children ages 8-12, The Light and the Glory for Young Readers explains American history through the lens of the providential-history approach, showing of God intervened over and over again in history just to create a place where His followers could worship. Telling the tale of Columbus, the Spanish missionaries, Roanoke Colony, and more, learn how Jamestown's proximity to swamps shows that they didn't seek the Lord's direction, how King Phillip's War was due to God lifting protective grace, and how "this fighting was more than a war over land. This was a spiritual battle... yet, God continued to take care of His people by showing them special favor." Study guide with questions and answers included. 186 pages, softcover. Ages 8-12.

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.

The third book in Peter Marshall's and David Manuel's God's Plan for America trilogy, Sounding Forth the Trumpet covers the events from 1837 through 1860. Dealing with the horrors of slavery, the work of the abolitionists and the confederates, the Civil War, this book puts forth the view that the war was not fought for economics, union solidarity, or to preserve a way of life, but over slavery. Looking at it from a spiritual perspective, the authors conclude that since the North was also guilty for its perpetuation, the Lord required a blood atonement of equal measure. Weaving together narratives of major players with an analysis of the politics and events that were happening around them, this final book exposes one of the dark aspects in our nation's history, while exploring the drive toward freedom and independence. 558 pages, indexed, softcover.
