Hailed as one of the most original works of history in years, America's Prophet reveals how generations of Americans have been inspired by the story of Moses. The pilgrims quoted his story. Franklin and Jefferson proposed he appear on the U.S. seal. Washington and Lincoln were called his incarnations. The Statue of Liberty and Superman were molded in his image. Martin Luther King Jr. invoked him the night before he died. Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama cited him as inspiration. For four hundred years, one figure has inspired more Americans than any other. His name is Moses.Traveling through touchstones in American history, bestselling author Bruce Feiler traces the biblical prophet's influence from the Mayflower through today. Meticulously researched and highly readable, America's Prophet is a thrilling, original work of history that will forever change how we view America, our faith, and our future.
Bruce Feiler is the bestselling author of eleven books, including The Council of Dads, Walking the Bible, Where God Was Born, and Abraham. He is the host of the PBS series Walking the Bible, a columnist for the New York Times, and a frequent contributor to NPR, CNN, and Fox News.
