After reading the stories, I was awed by their devotion to freedom. In a time of divisive, partisan politics, it was a relief to read something about what we have in common. It's a timely and timeless book.
I would highly recommend you read it and share it with friends.
Santorum includes a variety of individuals and does not limit the selection to "dead, white males." Included are individuals of varying racial and ethnic groups as well as many women. Perusing the table of contents prior to reading the book, I found that all of the individuals listed except for three were unfamiliar to me. While reading the brief biographies of each individual, I found that several are considered regional heroes and would be quite familiar to individuals who live in those regions. Santorum also includes multiple references for individuals who may wish to further research any of these individuals.
American Patriots is recommended for multiple audiences. As Christmas is coming, American Patriots would be a great gift for a history buff. Teachers and home school families would appreciate the behind the scenes information beyond dates and battles American Patriots would add to a unit on the American Revolution. Families who enjoy read-alouds will find this a great resource as each chapter is brief yet meaty enough to elicit great conversation and character building. Our family plans to add this to our read-aloud pile.Read more ›
You guessed it - Religion and Politics! Those are my two favorite subjects.
This book is not quite about politics. It is about the history of America and those who died to give us the right to talk about religion and politics.
I have always loved history, so I jumped at the chance to read this one. I have heard Rick speak and am very impressed. His writing is interesting and never boring.
This book is a great read. Santorum has taken small bite-size storys and created a very interesting book. Each story takes a segment of someone in history who gave their time, money and life to help in our struggle for independence.
Many lost everything they had. I thank God every chance I think about what our ancestors gave to make us free.
It is a short read, but almost imposible to put down. I read it in a day. Each story is short, to the point and will leave you wanting more.
I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
*I received this book, free of charge, from Tyndale House Books in exchange for an honest review.
Many forget the right to pursue happiness is not the right to do as one pleases in search of emotional well-being. Rather, the common understanding of happiness in the era of our Founding Fathers "was a result of doing what one ought to do according to God's laws." It is doing God's will that produces natural happiness.
I appreciated Santorum's reflection on John Witherspoon. The following quote is a great reflection of the pursuit of happiness. "To promote true religion is the best and most effectual way of making a virtuous and regular people. Love to God and love to man is the [substance] of religion; when these prevail, civil laws have litte to do..."
