If you’re looking for a great book that expertly combines Christianity and history from the American Revolution, you might have found it. Jane Hampton Cook’s Stories of Faith and Courage from the Revolutionary War is a unique publication that you will be thrilled to own.

This book is laid out to cover every day of the year with excerpts from various contemporaries of the American Revolution. Quotes from those on both sides of the Ocean are used to explore the period and the test of faith. Each Sunday’s page comes from a minister or religious text of the time and explores Christianity during the trials and tribulations of the war period.

There are several things that make this a great book to have.
• It is an ebook and can be taken anywhere.
• Each ‘lesson’ is short and not overly wordy. They get straight to the point.
• It uses primary sources in showing how faith was exercised during the period.
• There is a ‘lesson’ for every day of the year.
• It has an extensive bibliography you can use for further study and research.

These are not fluff lessons. They are deep and can be great launching pads for worthwhile discussions.

Note: This book was provided to me by the publisher without expectation of a positive review.
