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.

An excellent book!

I have this book several years ago, and needed to read it again, but had to buy again. So well researched, and so readable. It's the second of three books. Well worth purchasing!

This is a well written book, not dry history

The in depth research into our history sheds light on our current state! Many chapters discuss history in a relative manner and are a reflection of what is currently taking place in our country, politically, academically, in specific on our college campuses. I thought I was reading today's news when I saw how the same attitudes of pride, arrogance, and mockery toward Christianity and Christains were demonstrated in our political arena, the media and by the intelligencia on and off public school and college campuses in the 1800's. It shows the origins of this thinking, giving great insight into what did happen and what is now happening here and in Europe.
