As part of my obligation to Book Sneeze, I need to write a review for a book they sent me.
The Portable Patriot: Documents, Speeches, and Sermons That Compose the American Soul
I feel that it is important for every American to know exactly how we came to be the country that we are. This book does exactly that. It’s a collection of many documents that many of us have heard of and have been exposed to-i.e. The Declaration of Independence. History classes seem to only gloss over the ideals and principles that our founding fathers had in mind when forming this union. Not only are you able to see these principles in the writing, but the passion as well. It’s easy to overlook the passion when we learn mere facts and dates about our country’s history.
Most importantly, I think this is a very important book to have in a collection for the reminder that our country was founded on faith, a faith in a Mighty Creator. A fact that has been ignored in our modern times.
There is absolutely no bias or media slant in this book. These are the very words of the men and women that lived, and died, for their beliefs and their freedom the freedom of their children and us today.
I’ll probably keep this book around and perhaps be able to use it one day to educate my children.
