Abandoning the rather common and cynical view that history is but a series of grim problems, SHARE THE INHERITANCE takes you on an exhilarating tour of historical gifts created by Brits. The book is packed with gold nuggets of information, little-known facts, colour illustrations, stories about the men and women who triumphed over hatred and oppression to create the gifts of the Inheritance, a timeline and a study guide.
Like the underground aquifers and pipes which supply us with water, the Inheritance is often overlooked though it is life-giving. The authors have experienced life without the Inheritance firsthand, and know how desperately hard it is to live without freedom, fair play, delight in reason, a covenant of justice between leader and people, equality of opportunity, forgiveness, and trust, to name a few of the gifts. This book can inspire young people, and give adults a refreshing review of crucial and positive events in British history. Intriguing facts are footnoted.
