What people think about God affects the way they live; how people live, reveals what they think about God. Over the years, Americans have lived lives that reveal all too much about what they think about God. In this course, we will observe how Americans, starting from the beginning of the nation, lived and what they believed, as demonstrated through literature. We will see how history and worldview influence literature and how that same literature then influences the nation! Additionally, we will analyze and critique historical events, worldviews, and literature as it relates to the Word in order to see God’s truth in everything and His plan for everyone!

Join us as we go through history and literature to discover answers to the great question: What makes American Literature American?

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
