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  Devotionals covering historical documents such as the declaration of Independance and the Gettysburg Address are also contained in the pages of this book.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. 


  1. How about their exegesis of biblical passages? Since many today would apply biblical promises which were given to Israel and/or the Church to the U.S.A., thus wrenching them from their original contexts, would this book give aid and comfort to such misguided tomfoolery?

  2. TY for commenting on my page but I don't think that promises to Israel apply specifically to the United States, but rather to the individual as each individual must be personally responsible for his own salvation. Allegance to a country or patriotism- even to a moral country does not save a person. Nor does membership to a church save a person but it must be a personal and indiviidual choice. Nevertheles, there are many individual examples of Americans and patriots that had faith and serve as good examples.
