Kindle Ebook America's Prophet Moses and the American Story Å Bruce Feiler – washcloths.co.uk
Tter This was a Rivals Break (Sharpe Donovan fascinating listen especially at this time of year 4th of July I loved how well interwoven Moses is in so much of America soundation It was interesting to discover how many past American presidents have not only identified with Moses his exodus and liberation of the Israelites but also have uoted distinct passages rom EXODUS IN THEIR SPEECHES IT WAS EUALLY COMPELLING TO in their speeches It was eually compelling to how opposing sides both associated with Moses but or obviously different reasons such as the Patriots and Loyalists during the Revolutionary War the North and the South during the Civil War and those anti and pro segregation during the 1960 s I enjoyed realizing how deep rooted the Judaic tradition is in this country how much is has shaped and influenced our society and culture and held the ideas behind super heroes like Superman and Captain America The chapters on Cecil B DeMille his desire to create biblical narratives Soft Focus for the big screen and his insistence on having Charleton Heston portray Moses as a strong confidentigure despite character differences Alien Chastity Belt found in the Old Testament helped me to appreciate his cinema genius and craftsmanship all the Throughout Feiler provides a very well rounded and structured basisor all of the uestions and arguments he raises including opinions Faker from top scholars and incorporating his ownamilies personal traditions into the mix. Ve inspired many of the most important igures and defining events in this country’s
History From The Mayflower from the Mayflower to the Civil Rights movement and how Moses can provide meaning in times of national crisis even today .
