Every American citizen should be aware of/appreciate the miracles described in this book, October 30, 2009
By Becca

Good news! For those of us who's minds were elsewhere during American History class, we've been given a reprieve with this book! Seven Miracles that Saved America is full of those significant events and inspirational stories that we should not only be AWARE of, but value as American citizens. It is a reminder to all of us, that those critical events in our U.S. history were not coincidence, but necessary for the survival of freedom as we know it. God has had a hand in protecting this country from the beginning, read this book to find out how.

The book was enlightening and inspiring., October 30, 2009
By Lisa

At a time in our history that feels harder and harder to slog through, this book brought me comfort and insight. The information is critical to all citizens to know and understand and is told in a very simple and even handed manner. Information that seems to have been held captive unless the reader was earnestly seeking, was easily accessible and I already feel more intelligent. Patriotism is not and should not be dead, and I surely appreciate the authors for being willing to step out of the herd and lead the way for a return to believing that America really is a miracle.

--Amazon Reviews

One of my favorite books in the last couple of years. --Bob Lonsberry, Radio Host, KNRS

A MUST READ book for anyone that loves their country OR has ever felt cynical about the path our country seems to be taking! This book left me feeling hopeful and inspired.

I liked the narrative approach to each chapter that frankly made it more readable and enjoyable, as well as helping the people and events come to life. It helped put a face and personality to these historical individuals, making them more REAL and people I could relate to.

I enjoyed the new information and insights I gained into well-known historical events, but I also learned some fascinating new things about the history of our country (and this is coming from a former Social Studies teacher!!) The book was very well researched and documented, and thank goodness you don't have to be a devout student of history to understand the magnitude of the events discussed by the authors.

I am generally skeptical of any book that addresses US/American history because of the attempt by so many "new-age" and "progressive" authors that try to make me feel guilty for having an appreciation for the liberties I enjoy.

Reading this book is both enjoyable and informative: The way the authors help to make each discussed event personal to the reader makes it a good read... by mixing detailed and researched events with "fictional" dialogue really does work!

In reading this book, I was reminded of some historical events that I now look at differently and I learned about some events that I knew little about that really made me think...

What a great gift for the upcoming Holidays for family and friends.

A wonderful book, inspirationally written. The narration is thoughtful and provocative, and it draws the reader to consider the initial premise. There is something exceptional about America and it appears that God has an interest in its preservation.
Is there bias? Does it lean to the right? There is always bias, it is inescapable. The authors began with a faith in God and testimony of his purpose for the mortal existance of His children. Each chapter is well written and documents events that strongly support the notion that God has always been particularly intersted in the development and preservation of this land of liberty. It speaks favorably of both Roosevelt and Reagan; two Presidents leaning in opposite political directions. It stands in stark contrast to the "politically correct" propaganda that passes for textbooks in our public schools today.
When you read this book, read the last chapter twice. Then, read it again in a week.
Copies of this book are going to each of my children and their families.

When I first began a serious study of the history of America, I was repeatedly struck by how often I saw the divine hand of providence in the formation and protection of this country. This book is about 7 of those times...seven miracles both in the early and recent history of America. But I don't think that this is what that book is really (or totally) about. I think it is about hope and faith.

As I read the final chapter of this book, Naaman from 2 Kings 5 came to my mind. Wanting to be healed from the plague of leprosy, he goes to the prophet Elisha whom he had been told could heal him. The prophet sends a messenger to Naaman telling him to go and wash 7 times in the river Jordan. Naaman, insulted by this response, prepares to leave. His servants come to him and point out "if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?"

As we watch our own nation suffer economically, socially, and spiritually, I think most of us would do any great thing if we truly believed it would solve the problems we face, and yet we often overlook the simple things that we can and should do. Read this book and when you get to the last chapter, I think you will understand what I mean and why I think it gives us hope.

I would consider this a MUST READ. I really enjoyed this book. I love history and historical fiction; I read a lot so this book was right up my alley. It's written with historical facts and additional narrative in the story of each miracle. It really made me think more about the initial framework of our government and make better connections to events and ideas that I hadn't thought about. You also get an idea of the struggles the founders went through to develop the Constitution despite their personal beliefs. I especially love how they sought divine guidance in founding this country. The authors have given life to the founders and the historical events so when I read it; I felt it easy to get caught up in the story of each miracle. I am religious and this book does have a religious tone that might turn people away. But if you keep an open mind and are interested in the history of America I think this is an easy inspiring read.
