Item description for Plymouth in the Words of Her Founders (Plymouth Set) by Paul Jehle...
Overview Plymouth is a town that has been besieged by revisionist historians and special interest groups intent on presenting an anti-Christian and politically-correct history of America's spiritual birthplace. Thanks to the testimony of historian and pastor Dr. Paul Jehle, I am pleased to announce that the tide is turning. For the first time ever, visitors to Plymouth can have a well-documented overview of the monuments and sites of America's spiritual birthplace in the words of the founders of Plymouth and America themselves. Published as a special project of Vision Forum Ministries and the Plymouth Rock Foundation, this pocket guide is indispensable to the student of American history or the Christian who wants to defend the righteous actions of the Pilgrim Fathers.

Excellent antidote to revisionist history! Jul 29, 2005
This is a marvelous guide book. We intended to visit Plymouth on our vacation this year but did not make it. However, we plan to take this book with us when we go next year. Dr. Jehle goes through all the signifcant sites at Plymouth and takes you through the history (the real history, not the revisionist, politically correct nonesense that passes for history today) of that site/monument in detail. He acknowledges the contributions of both the Pilgrims and the native peoples and highlights the strong faith of our founders as well as that of many of those in the native population. I highly recommend this, especially if you want to teach your children the history of our founding.
Hear what the Pilgrims had to say Sep 25, 2004
This is an easy-to-read booklet for those off the beaten tourist path with an interest in history and philosophy/christianity. The second half is devoted to what is probably Plymouth's best kept secret: The Forefathers' Monument, a beautiful and impressive 81 ft. granite statue overlooking the town, which none of my friends had ever heard of. The monument artistically and philosophically depicts five main figures (Faith, Morality, Law, Education and Liberty), several smaller figures connected to the five larger ones and scenes of the history of the plantation. The worldview of the pilgrims and the citizens of the last century are explained through the interdependency and rich symbolism of the five figures of the monument: No liberty without education, no education without law, No law without morality, no morality without faith - an abbreviated version. The first half of the book is devoted to the history of the pilgrims and their settlement. Through personal accounts of 400 years ago, it brings to life the persecution, the aspirations and struggles of these pioneers, upon which our country was built. It gives brief descriptions of various monuments and other sights worth seeing and puts them into the historical context of the settlement. It made our return visit to Plymouth exceedingly rich.
