A most embarrassing item to have on my shelf! But it's a part of my personal history that I cannot ignore so there it will regrettably stay. I purchased it while a member of a religious cult because the author was one of the so-called leading pillars in that cult, but even then I was educated enough in history to be a wee bit embarrassed by it. If one is looking for a ra-ra-razzamataz fictionalized "history" of the United States that views said nation as chosen of God, and their rise to power the divine reward for their sufficiency of godliness, and that the history of the world can comfortably fit in a manichaean view of righteous (and hence blessed) protestant types and licentious nefarious (and hence cursed) catholic or worse (unbelieving) types, then one cannot go past this. It is not history any more than the Bible is history: it is pure theology and unspeakably blind patriotism posing for the likeminded as "history".
