From the author of the landmark Secret Teachings of All Ages comes two classic works on the mysterious origins and unique mission of America: The Secret Destiny of America and America's Assignment with Destiny .

Focusing on often-forgotten moments in history, Manley P. Hall proposes that there was a Great Plan put forth one thousand years before our nation's founding: humanistic and mystical organizations wished for the continent to be the location for an experiment in self-government and religious freedom.

As one of the leading esoteric scholars of the twentieth century, Hall offers an intriguing view of our past, discussing everything from the symbolism of the Great Seal of the U.S. to the prophecy announced at George Washington's birth.

The Great Work That the "haters" do not want to see completed. My job is not chaos but to Bring ORDER

Dec 26, 2012

An interesting book written in 1944 in which the content does not deliver what the title would suggest. This book looks at numerous Mystical (secret) Societies across time and in different parts of the world providing alternative views about the development of mankind. At times the language becomes a bit flowery and this detracts from the main message. Personally I don't think Mr. Hall makes much of a connection between the hope for a democratic world and the 'Destiny of America'. Viewed in today's world it would appear that America has missed its calling. He does however make a case for where he thinks the spiritual direction mankind should be taking if we are to survive as a species. If nothing else it makes some interesting non-conventional assumptions about a number of historical figures.
