"What a smart, original, and deeply intriguing reflection on the role Moses played - yes, Moses - in U.S. history. America's Prophet is Bruce Feiler at his innovative best: compelling, sweeping and engaging. Highly recommended!"--Douglas Brinkley
"This is one of the most original, intelligent and endlessly fascinating books I have read in years: it should become a set book for anyone wanting to know what truly makes America tick."--Simon Winchester

"Astunning collective portrait of an ingrown community with its own history, hierarchy, and traditions."--The New Yorker on Under the Big Top
"With a journalist eye and an adventurers spirit, Bruce Feiler brings his prodigious gifts of biblical analysis to a reconsideration of Moses as the essential prophet of the American Experience. This is an accessible and engaging book of indispensible insight."--Tony Horwitz
