Viewpoints expressed by key players of the Revolution are included in this amazing collection of inspiration and challenge. George Washington, Samuel Adams, Nathaniel Greene, Henry Knox, Benjamin Franklin, Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, John Adams, and King George III are among those that bring life to these individual examples of courage, conviction, and commitment.
Excerpts taken from original manuscripts, letters and speeches add greatly to the genuineness and authenticity of personal faith exercised in the decisions made during this period. These unique devotions include anecdotes that demonstrate the uplifting power of faith and reveal the personal battlefield of faith met by the leaders of the Revolution. The format of the book is designed for daily devotional use. Each week includes six days of stories built around individual faith and courage and are dsigned for reflection and contemplation. Each week includes a feature "The Revolution Today" directly related to incidents and issues relating to the war. The seventh day is dedicated to "Sabbath Rest" and features a sermon from a minister of the era. This is a book of patriotism and spiritual insight. It is the prayer of the author, Jane Hampton Cook, that: "As readers consider the meaning of the American Revolution, may they also experience a revolution in their own hearts one devotion at a time."
But her tools were not secret concoctions and potions, instead she transformed the theater-of-my-mind through the writings, short writings mind you, of the colonists themselves. Not through Op-Eds but by presenting the actual words and thoughts written by those individuals who were experiencing the search of unencumbered life, simple liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Ms. Cook waved the magic wand of eye witness accounts that revealed the full spectrum of triumph, defeat and the boundless hope of those who demonstrated faith and courage in the revolutionary quest for "a separate and equal station" from England. As I followed the persevering trail of those pioneers of liberty I lost track of the shortness of the stories.
But I digress. You MUST read the book and take the journey - Abra Ka Dabra.
