"God's Promises"

God's Promises for the American Patriot – Deluxe Edition
Dr. Richard G. Lee
Jack Countryman

“Inside the Bible's pages lie the answers to all the problems mankind has ever known.” A quote by President Ronald Reagan that illustrates America's story and God's word are inseparable. This is taken from the introduction to “God's Promises for the American Patriot.”

Having received this book free from Booksneeze for the express purpose of this review, I did not know what to expect. I somehow envisioned a coffee table book that had nice phrases in it that referred to our nation's founding. Maybe some pictures of the purple mountains or the shining seas. Then I opened the package and beheld this little jewel of a book and immediately knew that I held something important.

The book is small yet substantial having a hard cover layered in heavy, American flag paper and cushioned on the front. Opening the pages reveals heavy stock paper with an antique background motif and beautiful images and drawings on nearly every page. The book is of very special quality.

Laid out in a way that has a page out of history on the left with complimenting Bible passages on the right, this book begs the reader to return again and again. It gives a little story out of the history of the country and then displays how our founding fathers and citizens relied on the bible for answers during the construction of this nation. Never does it fail to please.

This book has a dedication page and I would encourage everyone to present it to a young person or friend. It is very worthwhile and will create many moments of reflection and pause.
