Judeo-Christian Experience in American Literary History represents decades of research into a whole new landscape of American writers and writings that have been largely under-represented in college anthologies. This book offers readers a quick overview of lesser-known but brilliant Christians, Jews, and Bible-inspired passages. Are you ready to rediscover your true social heritage? Who was the first professional woman historian and author in the United States? She is virtually unknown, yet her writings transformed American society by attracting many thousands of European Jews to migrate across the Atlantic. Why is Teddy Roosevelt perhaps the most literary of all presidents? What kind of God did Mark Twain really believe in – and did you know he was a passionate defender of Jews? You’ve read St. Paul but have you read Martin Luther King’s work “Paul’s Letter to American Christians?” Did you know that Hemingway wrote a story about two Romans in a bar following the crucifixion? Much like declassified documents long suppressed, readers will better understand the robust current of spirituality and Judeo-Christian intellect that shaped our nation and its Bible-inspired dreams.
