America's Prophet CD: Moses and the American Story

America's Prophet CD: Moses and the American Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The exodus story is America's story.

Moses is our real founding father.

In this groundbreaking book, New York Times bestselling author Bruce Feiler travels through touchstones in American history and traces the biblical prophet's influence from the Mayflower through today. Feiler visits the island where the pilgrims spent their first Sabbath, climbs the bell tower where the Liberty Bell was inscribed with a quote from Moses, retraces the Underground Railroad where "Go Down, Moses" was the national anthem of slaves, and dons the robe Charlton Heston wore in The Ten Commandments.

One part adventure story, one part literary detective story, one part exploration of faith in contemporary life, America's Prophet takes readers from Gettysburg to Selma, the Silver Screen to the Oval Office, to understand how Moses shaped the nation's character. America's Prophet is a thrilling original work of history that will forever change how we view America, our faith and our future.

Synopsis:

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.
