Preachers are often portrayed as pushovers and wimpy. This book recounts stories from the west that prove preachers can preach to save your soul and shoot to save your life.
I've worn out two copies and am working on the third.
Today's religious people quote, "One nation under God..." BUT only 2% of the people in that time had any religious background.
This book tells the amazing story of the need to evangelize early America! Folks fled England for religious freedom all right...some of them fled in order to be free from being forced to BE religious!
The early preachers rode on horseback, with a bible in their pocket and a gun in their hand, spreading the news of Christianity.
Gives a new perspective on the "early days" of our country and religious freedom.
A great read!
