Adapted for children ages 8-12, The Light and the Glory for Young Readers explains American history through the lens of the providential-history approach, showing how God intervened over and over again in history just to create a place where His followers could worship. Telling the tale of Columbus, the Spanish missionaries, Roanoke Colony, and more, learn how Jamestown's proximity to swamps shows that they didn't seek the Lord's direction, how King Phillip's War was due to God lifting protective grace, and how 'this fighting was more than a war over land. This was a spiritual battle... yet, God continued to take care of His people by showing them special favor.' Study guide with questions and answers included. 186 pages, softcover. Ages 8-12.
