Needed now even more than when first published!

Throughout America's history, many people have discerned the hand of God operating in the unfolding of the nation's history. In this wonderful book, the author goes through America's history, from Columbus to George Washington, showing the religious thoughts of the people involved, and how they believed that God was using them to make a difference in the New World that He had given them. Overall, I found this to be a very interesting book. It is unashamedly Christian, in an era was such is not popular. And, it is unashamedly on the side of freedom, at a time when the nation itself seems to be turning against such. The original book, The Light and the Glory, was first published in 1977, and it became a classic in the Evangelical community. This children's book came out in 1992, and I would argue that it is needed even more now than it was then. It is a great book that I think should be made available to all Christian children - it is great food for though for young readers...and older ones as well!

A good book for Christian home-schoolers.

This is a good book for Christian homeschooling moms. I bought it for my daughter, who is homeschooling her children.

Must Read!

This book is a must read for children to get a proper perspective of history. Public school textbooks will not reflect our Christian roots. Parents should read the regular version. My 9 year old granddaughter says this is her favorite book.

a must for all

Great and educational book. My son loved it and he does not care to read. This is a must for all out there.

Children will gain insight about America's Christian roots.

Like the adult book of the same title, The Light and the Glory for Children examines evidence for America's Christian roots. The authors reveal a past that is not at all smooth. The challenges of settling this land and building a new nation are shown in their harsh reality. Equally, the faith that strengthened the people for these challenges is presented as inspiration for tomorrow's citizens and leaders. Review questions in the back of the book helped my children explore their own values and beliefs about their country. There could be no better way to raise responsible citizens than to have them investigate our Christian heritage through this book.
