Great addition to your American Revolution library
This book brings to life again the great people that pledged their lives, their fortune and, most importantly, their sacred honor to the cause of liberty and freedom to worship their God. It reminds us that all 13 colonies were filled with God loving and God fearing people who sought a place to freely express their religious beliefs. Even the Congress declared days of prayer, fasting and supplication multiple times each year during the conflict to ask God for help in creating the country. Then when victory was achieved, they declared days of religious thanksgiving for all to celebrate the founding of this virtue based nation. George Washington was quoted throughout the book, certainly demonstrating that he sincerely believed that Providence was the reason the patriots won. It was a pleasure to listen to this great story. I found the quotes from George Washington, from the Congressional declarations and from others very interesting and they provided evidence for the author's statements about the colonists relationship with God. If you are interested in the history of the revolution, this book is an excellent addition to your library.

This book will let you know it is ok to have heroes. These men were great men who truly believed in God.They were not perfect but they followed the One who was perfect. This book will make you feel good about being an American. Which is something we desperately need in this day.
