Maybe I'm just spoiled by some of the better devotionals I've read, but this seemed very "light" in that category. A story, a one or two sentence "prayer" and a verse (or sometimes just a fraction of a verse!) for each day. If we ate food like that, we'd starve, and if that is the extent of your "devotions", you'll starve spiritually. The stories were great, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. The verses I had a problem with. The whole point of this book seems to be to teach the reader spiritual thin ...more

Not as good as I had hoped. The WWII title in this series is much better. This writer's attempts at application are often too forced. The work at times seems to have an agenda of conservative revisionism even though I expect some of that with this sort of work. One of her main sources seems to be History Channel programming.

This is a great way to spend your devotional time on a daily basis. You learn about the history of our country and how our Founding Fathers felt about the Christian religion. You also get a daily scripture reading that pertains to the founding of our country. What better way to spend your daily devotional time...

Ok, from a historical point of view. Each day had interesting stories about even some of the lesser known heroes. As a devotional book it was very light, theologically, not deep at all. Unfortunately, it left me unchallenged.
