The late Rev. Peter Marshall (1940-2010) was a Presbyterian minister who for over forty years gained national recognition as a preacher on Christian growth and discipleship and as a teacher and writer on America's Christian heritage. Because he believed that our nation is in moral and spiritual crisis and that the only hope for restoration is revival, his increasingly prophetic ministry focused on two major themes.
First, he emphasized the urgent necessity of recovering both the original American vision and the truth about our Christian heritage.
Second, he strongly emphasized the importance of putting II Chronicles 7:14 into practice: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land."
Son of the late Dr. Peter Marshall and author Catherine Marshall, he graduated from Yale University and Princeton Seminary, and then served as a pastor for twelve years. Beginning in 1977 he devoted himself to a continent-wide ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. He co-authored three best-selling books about God's call on America and His hand on our history — The Light and The Glory, From Sea to Shining Sea, and Sounding Forth the Trumpet. He lived on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
