Myths America Lives By, led by Harold Houghton

In January and February, we will be studying Richard Hughes’ Myths America Lives By.  While it will not be necessary to have a copy of the book, Harold encourages you to consider doing so. He notes that it is a worthwhile book to read and is always hoping that one will correct his mis-readings and bring up important points that he fails to include. Hughes examines the origins and consequences of these myths. How many do you recognize as your myths?

  • Chosen Nation (God chose America for a special mission in the world)
  • Nature’s Nation (America’s ideals and institutions are rooted in the natural order)
  • Christian Nation (America is rooted in and guided by Christian values)
  • Millennial Nation (America’s modeling of truth, justice, and democracy will usher in a final golden age for all)
  • Innocent Nation (America is a fresh start from the corruption of the Old World, her intentions are noble)

I have found it a very meaningful, insightful, and eye-opening examination of what it means to be a Christian American.
