This book is filled with beautiful color photographs and drawings on just about every page. The author stated the following on the dj flap: ""America's spiritual foundations and her evangelical thrust over two centuries bear directly, we believe, on the country's general prosperity and its position as a great world power. The dj flap goes on to state: What really motivated Columbus to launch into the dark unknown? Did the pilgrims of the Mayflower leave us any lasting spiritual legacy? How did evangelicals launch--and later lose--the ""Ivy League""? Did any strong Christians help shape the Declaration of Independence? What did the eastern and frontier revivals of early America contribute to the nation? What motivated the antislavery forces? Robert Floor has assembled a startling series of answers to these questions--and many more asked by those concerned with the anti-religious stance of many United States history books.
