Lessons on Divine Providence: “As one small candle may light a thousand, so the light enkindled here has shone to many, yea, in a sense our whole nation…” were the visionary words of America’s Christian founding father, William Bradford—igniting the hope of a faithful people intent on freedom of worship.
In the true spirit of Plymouth’s illustrious Governor Bradford, evangelist/historian Richard “Little Bear” Wheeler vividly recreates and dramatically retells the fascinating history of the Pilgrims—spanning their epic adventures from religious persecution in England, to an unsettled sojourn in Holland, to the unknown, untamed and uncharted shores of the New World.
Historic highlights include the betrayal and foiled escape from English shores, the treacherous voyage to America, Plymouth Colony’s first tragic winter, and the providential story of Squanto. With a sense of urgency and resolve, “Little Bear” recounts the Pilgrims’ Christian legacy to insure that “the light enkindled here” will not be extinguished in our generation, nor in generations yet to come.
