is this book secular or Christian?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The book details the journey of a family from Sweden to America. It doesn't overtly speak about God but does not promote anti-Christian sentiment. Our family used it in connection with a Progeny Press guide. I highly recommend the guide and the book.
