      About The Soul of America #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Pulitzer Prize–winning author Jon Meacham helps us understand the present moment in American politics and life by looking back at critical times in our history when hope overcame division and fear. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • The Christian Science Monitor • Southern Living.   Battle Creek man wrote a book about hitchhiking, jail and youthful confusion. He hopes it will help others. “It was real therapeutic,” John Broughton : Trace Christenson.

    In Battle of the Soul, a supernatural thriller that is a combination of Constantine and The Exorcist, since graduating high school, Andy has left a long trail of demons in his wake while priests are dying while performing traditional rites of exorcism. Andy is the church and society's ultimate weapon in combating this growing epidemic. This book, devoted to infantry, not airpower, tries to learn why all that is so. II. What, then, is the soul of battle? A rare thing indeed that arises only when free men march unabashedly toward the heartland of their enemy in hopes of saving the doomed, when their vast armies are aimed at salvation and liberation, not conquest and enslavement.

      He has a new book called "The Soul Of America: The Battle For Our Better Angels." You talk about a number of moments in U.S. history where we faced times of bitterness and division and strife. But on a macro level this is a pitched battle for the soul of Marfa—whether it will be able to resist full-on commercialization of its renown or whether it will grow into something more mundane.
