By Richard R. Blake VINE VOICE on October 27, 2007
Format: Paperback
Jane Hampton Cook, has compiled, and edited a unique collection of writings of inspiration and courage. These writings are from the years of the Revolutionary War, a period when a committed group of men and women joined forces in a cause to maintain a freedom to exercise the personal conviction of their faith.

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."

If I were lost on an island and had only one other book (besides the Bible) I would hope it could be; Battlefields and Blessings. I love the well-researched historical facts coupled with Biblical impact on every page. We live in an awesome country! What a great way to start or finish a long day. I thought I was well studied on the Revolutionary war but...every page was packed full of insights I hadn't a clue. I highly recommend this book for people who love Jesus and have an interest in our country's history.

Jane Hampton Cook does not know she is a magician. Generally, I don't like to read and history is a topic that is low on my list. I thought perhaps I could read this book since it was a gift and it had stories, essays and writings that were short, very short, which is a good recipe for me. But there were a lot of them so I began slowly. Amazingly I was caught up in the sights, sounds, conversation and convictions of the colonists in such a manner that I thought I was there.

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.

I purchased this book about six months ago and haven't put it down since. OK, I have put it down, but constantly pick it back up. It is there for when I am upset or when I am happy, when I need inspiration or when I feel inspired, and when I want to escape or want to be embraced. There are 365 different inspirational stories - one for each day. To be honest, I have cheated and read several in one day, but that is not a problem because the stories continue to inspire even when re-read. This is not just for Revolutionary War buffs or military war hawks, but for any person who wants to know what inspires Americans in any generation. Thank you, Ms. Cook.

I love this book! The companion ones are great too from the Civil War, and others. The stories are meaningful, bite-size, and make for great devotional readings by yourself or with the family. God is amazing, and the stories here prove it! Some will leave you with tears in your eye, others will make you pump your fists and praising God.

This "devotional" can be read straight through or daily. Each reading gives interesting insight into the events leading up to the Rev. War and then throughout the war. I have discovered a lot of interesting history in my daily readings and the author does a good job of bringing in the pertinent scriptures to go with each days subject. If you have read and enjoyed any of the other books in this series then you will like this one. If not then you should give this book a try.......I think you will be pleased!
