Our country was founded on the principles of religious freedom and our forefathers were well aware of that freedom. In God’s Promises for the American Patriot the authors have outlined both stories of our forefathers and their writings along with Scriptural references that pair with those writings. One that I found so intriguing was the definition of patriotism and how it has changed from Noah Webster’s An American Dictionary of the English Language published in 1828 to Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary Eleventh Edition in 2004 (p. 8). The change reflected a lack of passion and defensiveness for someone who loves his/her country. However, as the authors has so eloquently pointed out, even though the definition has changed, the passion has not.
The design of this book (the Deluxe Edition) is perfect for one who wishes to carry the book to appointments or to visit local, state, or national leaders. It features a short historical synopsis of a forefather and then the relevant Scriptural references. I really enjoyed reading this small book and plan to read it frequently and encourage friends to read it as well. Our nation is currently undergoing trials and tribulations and rather than lamenting the demise of our nation, I will use the Scriptural references and stories to pray for the healing our nation.
I received this book free from Booksneeze.com for review.
