The story of the first Thanksgiving has become something of a hagiography. At the very least it typically under-emphasizes the profound hardship experienced by our nation’s first settlers. IVP’s 2013 release, _The First Thanksgiving: What the Real Story Tells Us About Loving God and Learning from History_ is a great guide to studying the history of the first thanksgiving. And the voice over is by one of my favorite IVP employees, Dr. Jon Boyd.
