9780062123459 The New York Times bestselling author of Religious Literacy and God Is Not One presents a provocative crash course in the great â€œAmerican scripturesâ€â€”those texts that have both divided and defined our understanding of what it is to be American. Stephen Prothero gives readers an exciting and user-friendly introduction to American cultural history in The American Bible. Highlighting the touchstones of our collective cultural legacy, from Thomas Paineâ€™s Common Sense to Maya Linâ€™s Vietnam Veterans Memorial; from the speeches of Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan to the novels of Mark Twain and Ayn Rand, and beyond, Protheroâ€™s stirring and provocative handbook peels back the curtain on the inner workings of what makes America tick.
