Our Review

The Puritans  who settled  Massachusetts Bay in the 1630s declared their intent to establish “a city on a hill” that would be a uniquely  pure society  and a beacon to the world.  Gamble  traces  this  conception  through American history  as it has developed into the  belief that the U.S. has a special relationship  with and a special mission from God to enlighten and reform the world—a  heretical religion of Americanism   that has been proclaimed by all the Presidents of recent times.
