Manly P. Hall's two classic works on the hidden history and occult mission of AmericaThe Secret Destiny of America and America's Assignment with Destiny each redesigned and reset in this special two-in-one volume.
Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, The Secret Destiny of America presents evidence for a mysterious Great Plan at the core of the nation's founding. Preeminent occult scholar Manly P. Hall argues that humanistic, esoteric, and mystical orders collaborated in setting aside the American continent for a world-shaking experiment in enlightened self-government and religious liberty.
The author locates the seeds for this plan one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian era, exploring figures such as the Pharaoh Akhnaton, Plato, and Plotinus. Once hatched in the colonial age, the great experiment involved: · Christopher Columbus, who may have been an agent of esoteric order connected with Lorenzo de' Medici and Leonardo da Vinci;
· English intellectuals Bacon and Raleigh, who played unique roles in the court intrigue surrounding the settlement of the continent;
· founders Washington and Franklin, who had esoteric associations;
· and a network of Rosicrucians, mystics, and Freemasons whose ideals of religious freedom traveled to American soil.
Whether discussing the symbolism of the Great Seal of the United States, the prophecy at George Washington's birth, or the role of a mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence, The Secret Destiny of America is the sole volume to link together the fascinating strands of esoteric history that lie at America's heart.

What I enjoyed about this book was perusing the broad smattering of quasi-esoteric tidbits, Masonic symbolism and philosophic lore. This book serves potentially as a springboard for the intuitive student. It may trigger within him a deeper understanding of the purpose behind 'Universal Brotherhood'. For the profane among us, this book will undoubtedly prove to be just 'down right interesting.'
