Publisher Comments:

Manly P. Hal‛s two classic works on the hidden history and occult mission of America—The Secret Destiny of America and Americ‛s Assignment with Destiny— each redesigned and reset in this special two-in-one volume.

Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, The Secret Destiny of America presents evidence for a mysterious Great Plan at the core of the natio‛s founding. Preeminent occult scholar Manly P. Hall argues that humanistic, esoteric, and mystical orders collaborated in setting aside the American continent for a world-shaking experiment in enlightened self-government and religious liberty.

The author locates the seeds for this plan one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian era, exploring figures such as the Pharaoh Akhnaton, Plato, and Plotinus. Once hatched in the colonial age, the great experiment involved: · Christopher Columbus, who may have been an agent of esoteric order connected with Lorenzo d‛ Medici and Leonardo da Vinci;

· English intellectuals Bacon and Raleigh, who played unique roles in the court intrigue surrounding the settlement of the continent;

· founders Washington and Franklin, who had esoteric associations;

· and a network of Rosicrucians, mystics, and Freemasons whose ideals of religious freedom traveled to American soil.

Whether discussing the symbolism of the Great Seal of the United States, the prophecy at George Washingto‛s birth, or the role of a mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence, The Secret Destiny of America is the sole volume to link together the fascinating strands of esoteric history that lie at Americ‛s heart.

Synopsis:

Is America an assignment of destiny? What is the symbolism of the Great Seal of the U.S.? Who was the mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence? According to Lord Bacon, The New Atlantis seems to have been set apart for the great experiment of enlightened self-government long before the founding fathers envisioned the rise of the American Republic. Investigating the often neglected fragments of history, evidence is presented indicating that the seeds of democracy were planted one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian Era.

New Connexion , July 14, 2010 (view all comments by New Connexion )
This book is a new compilation of two previous works, The Secret Destiny of America, published in 1944, and America’s Assignment with Destiny, published in 1951. Hall presents his evidence for a mysterious plan (think Templars and Masons) for the birth of the United States. Before our Founding Fathers, though, Hall presents his evidence that other civilizations were here long before even the Native Americans.

Sometimes his methods of numerology and coincidences seem a long stretch, but maybe everything is true. History is only what some writer or storyteller chooses to pass along as fact, leaving us to ponder what other information is missing. It’s those often neglected fragments of history that Hall presents. It’s fascinating to think about, and it could be right in plain sight all the time, in things we take for granted. Take the U.S. $1 bill, for instance. That mysterious eye above the pyramid on the reverse of our currency is on the cover of the book. Hall includes its symbolism in his findings. One wonders what additional evidence might have come to light in the decades — more than a half-century — since Hall wrote the original books.
