American History

Miracles In American History

"Unlike most other commentaries, this book will both educate and edify, reminding the reader to look up when considering the history of this American nation." (Robert Wright, Ph.D., BYU-Idaho) Glorious moments have triumphed over the span of darkening centuries. These miracles - from the days of Adam to modern times - have combined to make possible the conditions under which the Gospel of Jesus Christ could be restored in its fullness upon the earth in this last dispensation of time. When we learn about, and appreciate the miracles in American History, we will have more faith and hope for miracles to occur in our own lives.
