America's Prophet: How the Story of Moses Shaped America (P.S.) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bruce Feilers New York Times bestsellers Abraham, Walking the Bible, and Where God Was Born brilliantly explored the roots of faith. With Americas Prophet, Feiler looks at Moses and the essential role the prophet has played in our nations history and development. Bruce Feilers most fascinating and thought-provoking book to date, Americas Prophet delves deeply into how the Exodus story and Americas true “Spiritual Founding Father” have inspired many of the most important figures and defining events in this countrys history—from the Mayflower Pilgrims to the Civil Rights movement—and how Moses can provide meaning in times of national crisis, even today.

 

Synopsis:

Hailed as one of the most original works of history in years, America's Prophet reveals how generations of Americans have been inspired by the story of Moses.

The pilgrims quoted his story. Franklin and Jefferson proposed he appear on the U.S. seal. Washington and Lincoln were called his incarnations. The Statue of Liberty and Superman were molded in his image. Martin Luther King Jr. invoked him the night before he died. Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama cited him as inspiration. For four hundred years, one figure has inspired more Americans than any other. His name is Moses.

Traveling through touchstones in American history, bestselling author Bruce Feiler traces the biblical prophet's influence from the Mayflower through today. Meticulously researched and highly readable, America's Prophet is a thrilling, original work of history that will forever change how we view America, our faith, and our future.
