God's Promises for the American Patriot - By Richard Lee, Jack Countryman
God's Promises for the American Patriot - By Richard Lee, Jack Countryman is an impressive, illustrated pocket sized book of patriotic devotionals. This book contains short stories, anecdotes and historical information about well known historical figures such as George Washington Carver, as well as Abraham Lincoln. Contemporary American heros such as Gen Patton and President Reagan are to be found as well. Devotionals covering historical documents such as the declaration of Independance and the Gettysburg Address are also contained in the pages of this book. Furthermore, this is not only a quaint book of American quotes and trivia, but an inspriting book on American history and the role of faith in this country. It can not be denied by athiests or humanists that this nation was founded on the Christian faith as taught in the bible. Our inventors, and historical figures based their lives on the words of the bible. In contrast to today's world, where ambition and materialism are the basis of our consumeritic and selfish culture, faith took a large role in the history of our nation, from the greatest of politicians and generals to inventors, and families. As a blogger for booksneeze I recieved this book from Thomas Nelson publishers for the purpose of writing this review.
