From the book’s description:
“For more than 200 years God’s promises have led our country. Enjoy these stories of heroes, past and present, who’ve devoted their lives to establishing and shaping America on the promises of God. Experience those same promises from the Bible in your life today.”
God’s Promises for the American Patriot (by Dr. Richard G. Lee and Jack Countryman) should be read by every American. This book shows, in a very real way, the religious and moral principles on which our country was founded; making this book a timely read in this hour of uncertainty and unrest in our country (and around the world) is facing right now. I definitely would recommend this book to give as a gift or to keep for oneself.
On the left pages of the book you get to read snippets of text from our founding fathers, historical text (such as the Gettysburg Address) and mini faith-testimonials from other patriotic persons. On the right there are “patriotic” scripture verses along the same theme as the page next to it.
This isn’t a book that you have to read from front to back, as you would a novel, although you could. I choose to skip around reading the titles that interested me first and reflecting on the accompanying scripture verses. I followed this pattern until I finished reading the book, so I could write this review.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the quotes and stories of faith from our founding fathers and others highlighted in this book. I also gained insights about our founding fathers that I certainly never learned in history class. It’s books like this that makes me glad I am homeschooling, because I can (and will) use this fun and interesting book to teach my son history, rather than boring textbooks used in ‘regular’ school that does nothing more than forcing children to memorize facts.
This book was inspiring and gave me hope that no matter what difficulties our country is going through at the moment, IF we change our hearts and return to the Lord, we will come out a stronger and better nation.
I give this book 4 stars.
