Summary:

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.

    I really enjoyed this book, well written, and narrated. As a Christian, it was great hearing about the parallel paths of our nation's history, and that of the biblical Moses. Interesting how far our country has strayed from the godly foundations of the founding fathers. The liberty bell if designed today, could never bear that scripture, someone would surely be taken to court!
