God's Promises for the American Patriot

Absolutely love the Booksneeze program from Thomas Nelson. I received this book by Dr Richard G. Lee and Jack Countryman to read and review. This is my second book by them. I reviewed In God We Trust devotional earlier and loved it so I requested this book and was not disappointed. It is a small gift book with a beautiful flag cover with only 195 pages.
I have a daughter in the military and have become more interested in history and how our country has evolved.
This book enhanced how our country was founded by biblical principles and why it is so important that God directs our steps. Each page has an interesting tidbit of history or a historical person who has shaped America on the promises of God. On the other page are three scriptures that coincide with what was on the opposite page.
Loved the page where Ronald Reagan said on his famous "Shining City Upon a Hill" speech. We were indeed-and we are today-the last best hope of man on earth. Another interesting page is the Bible and the American Presidents and their quotes about the bible. This is something I never knew about President Lincoln. During the ravages of the Civil War, President Lincoln declared a National Fast Day on March 30, 1863 and explains why.
The authors have put together a wonderful book of stories of past and present heroes who have shaped America on their beliefs of God and the bible.
Excellent book for anyone who loves this country and what it stands for and how God's word is so important. This book will help you appreciate our history and God's promises.
Thank you to Thomas Nelson for sending me this book for my honest opinion of it.
