God's Promises for the American Patriot by Richard Lee and Jack Countryman

Truths expressed in the Bible have guided many of our greatest Presidents. John Quincy Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Ronald Regan, Benjamin Harrison, and Harry S. Truman gave testament to the importance of the Bible for them and for our country. One of my favorite sections of this book is the series of quotes from these men.

The book features historical events and documents important in American history coupled with appropriate Bible verses. I believe that anyone reading the two together will realize how the Bible formed the foundation of our country and guided the actions of many people. From the Declaration of Independence to the move westward, the Bible traveled with the people giving them courage and inspiration.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a passions for America. I believe it would make an excellent devotional, or a book for discussion in a small group setting.

I review this book as part of the Thomas Nelson BookSneeze Program.
