This book comes in two flavors, the "National" edition written for a mainstream Christian audience, biblical-based and introductory in nature. The National edition will release in late October 2011. The National edition is an in-depth but high level treatment of the subject. Enough to educate, inform, uplift and inspire. It is an ideal way to introduce and educate yourself or your neighbors on the topic. The "National" edition is a single volume of some 350 pages and will be titled: "The American Covenant - One Nation Under God" suitible for all audiences and geared toward a Christian reader.
The larger 2-Volume comprehensive "LDS Edition" is organized into two parts and is geared toward a Mormon audience. Volume I tells the covenant story from the time of Abraham to America?s discovery through the Revolutionary War. Volume II picks up at the end of the Revolution and takes us through the creation of the Constitution, the tragedy of the Civil War and on through to the present day. The "LDS Edition" reflects the background and perspective of the author which is LDS.
Have you ever wondered why similar spiritual feelings permeate your soul whether you are reading the prayerful words of the Hebrew military commander Joshua?or General Washington? Or why your eyes get equally misty, and your heart similarly joyous, whether you are singing Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing?or the Star Spangled Banner? Yes, you know it is a ?choice land? given by God, but have you ever considered that perhaps there is a deeper connection?even deeper than you ever imagined?between Heaven and America?
This book promises to open your eyes to this deeper connection. You will learn how and why ancient prophets?from Jacob (Israel), Joseph, Daniel, Jeremiah and Isaiah?foresaw the United States and knew of its divine ordination. Besides the advent of the Messiah, there were few things that almost all ancient prophets saw. America was one of them! More astonishing, perhaps, is the idea that the fathers of this nation?from the Pilgrims to the revolutionaries, to the patriots of the Civil War?knew they had been seen by the ancients!
Why else did the early settlers insist they were the ?New Israel?? Why was George Washington?s scripture of choice an Old Testament prophecy about the gospel destiny of America? Why did John Adams seek a "Restoration," and why did Jefferson directly prophecy that it would occur shortly after his death and that it would land upon the foundation of the Constitution? Why (and how) did Abraham Lincoln, like a prophet of old, fulfill ancient and modern prophecy? And how did God prepare him for the work he accomplished. You will learn why history has repeated itself in the founding of latter-day Israel, and why did the Founding Fathers feel such a profound connection (in life and death) to "temple" worship?
These are but samples of the many puzzle pieces that, when properly assembled, reveal the true nature and purpose of America. Other evidences include symbolic images on our dollar bill, miracles in war, a prophet?s warning, a president?s prayer, scriptures with cryptic meaning hiding in plain sight?pieces, clues, words and symbols that actually fit perfectly together. Upon finishing this book, you will ask, How did I not see all this before?
The key to assembling the pieces, to solving the puzzle, and to understanding the miracles, is found in an ancient promise from the God who created this nation. It is found in The American Covenant.
?By rereading American history in light of the Restoration, Ballard has given readers a clear path to follow in understanding just how God has guided history, resulting in the ushering in of the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times.?
