All they wanted was to pursue happiness by running their
businesses, managing their farms and raising their families.
They would have been content to die quietly and anonymously,
instead they found themselves living loudly for liberty.
Battlefields and Blessings: Stories of Faith and Courage
from the Revolutionary War takes you - in a 365-day devotional
format - from the starting point to the finishing line in America's
quest for Independence, revealing that the Revolution was more than
just a war, it was a changing of hearts and minds. Based upon
stories and documents from Revolutionary heroes along with sermons
of the period, the issue challenges are strikingly familiar to us
today. While most Revolutionary War books give you the
military strategy or the political struggles of independence,
Battlefields and Blessings gives you all that plus
something unique: the pulpit perspective.
What makes this book timely is its ability to connect readers to
our nation's roots of freedom, something essential to supporting
our service men and women today as they continue the Revolution by
living loudly for liberty.
