I believe that the premise of this book is an unspoken belief in dispensationalism, meaning that the Lord's new chosen people is the land of America. I fundamentally disagree with this philosophy. Although there are certain situations that are surely miraculous and the Lord's hand was clearly on America's founding, there are many nations and civilizations throughout history where we see this as well. To name a few: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Rome, and Great Britain.

This book is best enjoyed as a history book with highlights of American personalities and narratives. This is Mr. Medved's strength and his engaging writing about the early American past is second to none.
