The Bible has had a great influence on the founding of America, perhaps more so than any other book. Within its pages, both clergy and lay leaders found inspiration to move forward with the plans of founding a new nation, and building it on faith.
The book shows the verses and then shares how they played a part in a significant event in American history. Some of the events are well known, others are not, but each one had a role in building the country. Though each entry is around two or three pages, they are well written and detailed.
100 Bible Verses That Made America is both informative and interesting. There are stories that I had never heard before and more about ones that I had. The book sheds light on parts of our history that are not often taught in school. The Bible served as a basis for many of the ideals that make this country what it is.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
