Honors Component: Book Review

It was truly a pleasure of mine to have read John Winthrop's book. He is an intelligent man full of many wonderful ideas. This book is all about John Winthrop's life and his famous "City on a Hill," speech. In his autobiography he gives us a better understanding of his "City on a Hill," speech and it is persuading enough for everyone to hop on board. This book was intended for the colonists to read, specifically those searching for a place in government in the colonies. The book offers examples from the past and shows what Winthrop's plan can do in order to make a positive change in the future. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
