Book summary

Does God really bless a nation that honors him? In From Sea to Shining Sea, Peter Marshall and David Manuel take us back to the post-revolutionary era to reveal how God intervened on behalf of our struggling young nation.

During this fifty-year period, Daniel Boone, Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston, and other American heroes carved out their place in history. Conestoga wagons and circuit riders became famous, Indian wars and slavery were major concerns, and the Louisiana Purchase and the Oregon Trail expanded Americas borders from sea to shining sea. The authors tell how Gods hand was evident in these and other key moments in the shaping of the young nation.

Marshall and Manuels stirring historical account of Gods working in America has found a large and loyal readership. This fast-paced, absorbing narrative tells not only how Americas divine plan became downgraded and its future threatened by greed, pride, and self-righteousness, but how in the midst of all this turmoil, God raised up the right men to shape the political structure and moral character that make America Gods country.

An audio version read by Peter Marshall is available on two 90-minute cassettes. [via]
