Showcasing over one hundred of the oldest and most historic churches in Georgia, Faith of Our Fathers by author Don Joiner is a full color pictorial history of the remaining churches built before the years of the American Revolution and the end of the Civil War in 1865.

Respectfully dedicating his work to our forefathers, author Don Joiner, has given brief histories of the churches listed each by county, but also gives insight into the foundation of the Christian religion and Georgia’s participation in matters such as the signing of The Declaration of Independence.

The book also includes a list of the denominations in Georgia before the Civil War ended in 1865. With excerpts on the historical markers in the state of Georgia, the early Christian footprints in Georgia, the various religious denominations in Georgia and The Great Awakening, one will find this book filled with a plethora of early American history. This is truly a remarkable read filled with extensive research into such matters of history.

Being a retired school superintendent, the author began as a history teacher. Since then he has been a school principal, director of elementary school education, assistant superintendent and retired as an independent owner of a real estate appraisal firm.

His knowledge and love for history shine throughout the pages as he enlightens readers on the many sacrifices our fathers made in settling the colonies. This book is a wonderful and interesting read that is dedicated to authenticity and accuracy.

Developed by the author through the discovery of the fact that there was not a single publication devoted to, “. . . describing and portraying, the earliest still standing churches in Georgia.” With a highly informative and historical viewpoint, the author gives readers a rich history of not only the state of Georgia, but also a wonderfully well-written, historically correct perspective that intertwines the rich history of Christianity, the Civil War and the foundation of Christianity.
