Book Report: The Light and The Glory

The Light and the GloryHistory always seemed to have a boring connotation associated with it for me. U.S. history was especially confusing – all the dates seemed to be mixed up and isolated from each other. However, The Light and the Glory brought all the events of America’s early history together in an exciting new way from God’s perspective.

Rather than tediously recounting an overhwelming number of facts and dates, The Light and the Glory steps you through the thrilling years of America’s beginnings as God’s intricate plan for the young nation began to unfold. It clearly reveals how greatly she was blessed with divine intervention when her people committed to obeying God’s commands, and how lovingly He reproved her as they began to stray onto their own paths.

I thoroughly enjoyed this first book in the series, and am looking forward with great anticipation to reading the other two: “From Sea to Shining Sea” and “Sounding Forth the Trumpet”.

    That sounds like a very interesting book. I never liked history either but maybe I’ll read this book and change my mind.

    That is the best narrative on American history that I have ever read! Looking forward to posts on the next two books.
