Promises for the American Patriot


God’s promises for the American Patriot:

When I picked up this book I was looking forward to: the timely usage of scriptures in conjunction with patriotism, interesting anecdotes about patriotism, and stories from patriots both young and old. Upon reading God’s promises for the American patriot I was able to find all these things in the book, as well as something I hadn’t considered. The book contained not just quotes and stories from our founding fathers, as well as more modern examples of patriotism, but it contained and provided excerpts from some of America’s most famous legal documents.

However, something I did not expect is that it would be a “thought-a-day” book; every other page containing a small written piece utilizing excerpts or perhaps a mini-biography of a patriot with scriptures on the opposing page. For the first fifty pages, I enjoyed the stories, informative pieces, as well as quotes from our legal documents. Unfortunately, after fifty pages I found it becoming rote. Perhaps due to the subject matter covered, there simply wasn’t much possible fluctuation in the material presented. I found the book lacked holding power for me to read, and regret I wasn’t aware it was a thought-a-day book.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
