Another masterpiece!

So far I've read all three books in the series, and I eagerly await the fourth! Marshall and Manuel describe the period leading up to the Civil War in a way that you will not see done in government schools today. Again, this is a must-read for anyone who is either home-schooling their children, or for those who have children in government schools. So much of history is distorted today. It is refreshing to read an historical account written from a Godly perspective.

Readable and fiercely inspiring!

I think that this is the best volume in Marshall and Manuel's "providential history" series. The material on the prayer revival of 1857-59 is easily worth the price of this book for any American believer.A word about this series as a whole:While I slightly prefer the treatment of the same subject in William P. Grady's WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT to the ongoing history presented in this series, I will say that M & M's treatment of Lincoln and the spiritual causes of the civil war were, to me, far superior. I would still, however, recommend that you read both this series AND Grady's wilder, more hardcore fundamentalist approach. Between the two you will have much to consider.All in all, a great read.

Sounding Forth the Trumpet

A very good historical look of the history in the USA between the years 1836 -1860. What I found interesting was that it tells of people and events that are not known to most Americans. Who were Presidents James Polk or Zachery Taylor? This book talks about any strengthes or weaknesses that they may have had. The authors go into details about what happened during the war with Mexico. The struggles of how new states would be added to the republic, either free or slaves. All of this with a Christian perspective that does not cram religion down one's throat. I would recommend all three volume of theirs.

Highly recommended for all!

"Sounding Forth the Trumpet" is an excellent book and has inspired me to study further into our American, and more importantly Christian, roots. Too many of us do not know where we have come from and certainly do not know where we are going. God does have a plan for us, we need to seek Him so we can know it!! I eagerly await the next volume in the series.

An Excellent account of the causes of the Civil War.

This is the third volume of the Author's Christian History of the United States. Sounding forth the trumpet covers the period from 1837 to 1860, The period leading up to the Civil war. The Authors give a very honest, detailed account of Negro slavery in the U.S.They point out that the Anti-slavery movement was born in the great revival of the 1830's. The Authors make a strong case that the Father of the movement was not William Lloyd Garrison or Wendell Philipps. But rather the great Evangelist Charles Finney. The book exsposes the fundamental dishonesty of Southern Church Leaders who tried to use the Bible to defend slavery, The book provides marvelous sketches of the marvelous cast of characters of this period especially Abraham Lincoln.The book also gives a new interpretation of the Mexican war that is worth reading. In fact the whole book is well worth reading, especially for those who don't realize that religion is the most important factor in human history.
