America in Perspective: LDS Perspectives on America's Past, Present and Future

( 2 )

Overview

Numerous books and pamphlets have been written on what the author calls the American theme. However, many of these publications are nothing more than a synopsis of American tragedy and government corruption.

This book "has a larger, more ideal ambition," says the author. "In the truest sense, America in Perspective is not as much a book about what's wrong with America as it is a book about what's right (or will be right) with America."

Overview

Numerous books and pamphlets have been written on what the author calls the American theme. However, many of these publications are nothing more than a synopsis of American tragedy and government corruption.

This book "has a larger, more ideal ambition," says the author. "In the truest sense, America in Perspective is not as much a book about what's wrong with America as it is a book about what's right (or will be right) with America."

America in Perspective is a hallmark of a book, far different than the masses. The author writes of America's past, present and future as seen through a religious perspective. Though primarily LDS (Latter-day Saint or Mormon) oriented, America in Perspective has the ability to reach out and touch the heart and mind of everyone who has even an inkling of American patriotism. With numerous quotes from scripture, past and present religious authorities, political leaders and other sources, America in Perspective is a classy distinction that fills a contemporary need.

    Informative

    Overall, this catchy-covered book is a good read. There's a few typographical errors but nothing major, and the thing I enjoyed most was the plethora of quotes and footnotes the author uses from LDS general authorities, historic personalities and scripture. He put in his time. Good job.

    I enjoyed this book, and recommend it to anyone interested in Latter-day Saint views on the United States. The author uses a lot of quotes from LDS authorities, and the book has a good overall feel to it.
