God’s Promises for the American Patriot caught my eye right away. I have always loved history, and I love getting to have looks into some of the lesser known heroes of our country.
I really enjoyed this little book.
Each one of the 195 pages includes words taken from the speeches and writings of men like Abraham Lincoln, Alexander Hamilton, Longfellow and Thomas Jefferson. The focus is on the things that they lived or spoke that show their own commitment or observations of the place that God and His word have in the foundation and preservation of freedom and happiness as individuals and as a Nation.
While this book is aimed toward an “American Patriot”, the words inside aren’t just applicable to American citizens. I think that these excepts that talk about the place that God and the bible should hold in our lives applies to everyone, whether or not you live under the Stars and Stripes.
I enjoyed being reminded of where we have come from as a Nation, and of the promises from God’s word that God is faithful and true, even when we forget how He has led us in the past, and begin to forget how much freedom has cost us all.
This book would be a great homeschooling supplement as well, which just is one reason why I’m keeping this one on my shelf. I hope that one day, I can pass along not only a love for the facts of History, but for the principles of freedom in my own children, so that when they read books like these, they too will feel inspired by the men of the past to cherish liberty for the future.
