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.
These are the words on the back cover of the Deluxe Leather Edition of God’s Promises for the American Patriot. As a Christian who is passionate about her adopted country, I hoped for a book that would renew my faith in God and theUnited Statesand show that, despite attempts to show the contrary, America was truly founded on Christian principles.
Thankfully, this is a book that does just that. It begins with George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789, and continues through to The Battle Hymn of the Republic which was written by Julia Ward Howe in 1861. None of the writings are in chronological order – I think the earliest statement is from 1607 and the most recent from 1995 – which makes it more than a history lesson. Wherever you open the book, you are faced with a text about a historical figure and a quote regarding their faith on the left page, and Bible verses on a similar theme to the quote on the right.
With so much going on in the country today, this book should be a reassurance to us. No matter what others may say, this country was founded on Christian principles and faith has continued to a vital part of this country’s success. In today’s uncertain times, give this book to anyone who might be beginning to doubt this amazing truth.
