Book Review:

The book And There Was Light is a series of essays by former president of the United States and Pulitzer prize-winning author George W. Bush. The book is based on several lectures given by Bush during his presidency about faith and history. In these lectures, Bush described how he personally came to believe in Jesus Christ. He also discussed how his faith has changed his view of history and how he uses that knowledge to create better policies for the country.

In the book's introduction, former president George W . Bush describes the concept of history through his eyes. He explains that while most people see only darkness in history, he sees light. He says that seeing light in history helps us understand where we're going and what we should do. Essentially, seeing darkness can prevent us from seeing opportunities; seeing light leads to a better understanding of our past and creates a better understanding of where we're going. Through this interpretation, reading historical works can lead us to a better future.

The book's setting takes place primarily in Bush's childhood home in Midland, Texas. The house where Bush grew up is now a museum dedicated to him and his family. Inside the museum is an original copy of the book he wrote about faith and history. Though he did not write this book himself, he based it on lectures he gave about his own personal history with Jesus Christ. Throughout the book, Meacham discusses topics such as his mother reading him Bible stories as a child and how her faith helped her through difficult times. This gives insight into his childhood and introduces pre-history into his personal history with the Christian god.

The book then discusses some of the people from Bush's past who affected his faith. His maternal grandfather was a Protestant minister who inspired him with Christian values from an early age. He also credits his pious mother for instilling moral values in him at an early age. Both of these people helped shape Bush's personal relationship with Jesus Christ throughout his life and informed many parts of his lectures on faith and history. Through these historical examples, readers can see how Bush's faith has impacted his life and led him to become a good person- even toward political leaderships.

In the book, Meacham explores why believing in Jesus Christ has changed his views on history and changed the way he acts toward people. He describes how seeing the light in history leads him to act compassionately toward others. This comes from knowing that God loves everyone equally regardless of their beliefs or actions toward others. It also comes from knowing that all people will one day face judgment from God; those who have done good will go to heaven, while those who have done evil will go to hell. Seeing light makes it easy for us to understand these concepts and act accordingly toward others based on that knowledge.

Bush's book about believing in Jesus Christ and seeing light in history has enjoyed consistent praise from critics since its release in 2007. Throughout the essays, readers can see how believing in Christ has shaped Bush's views on history and led him to be a good person toward others. His historical references are insightful and easily understood thanks to them. In short, Meacham did an admirable job illustrating some very profound thoughts!
