The Great American Myth: American History, Part 2

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series The Great American Myth: American History

Are people who talk and write about history necessarily history scholars? No!

Christ’s example to us is richly illustrated, demonstrated, and exemplified by way of His many teachings and in His genius and spirit.
