I've been reading a lot lately, mostly Christian novels, but also a few other things, and I have some new recommendations for you.
First we'll start with any book by Jane Kirkpatrick. This is an inspiring Christian author who writes Christian novels, mostly centered around women, and marriage. All have a historical basis, and most are set in the pioneer days. Each book will leave you satisfied, and yet, craving more. I recommend starting with "A Sweetness to the Soul." Be sure to also read her Memoir "Homestead" as well. You are sure to be touched and lifted up by all of her works. You can view her website here: http://www.jkbooks.com/
Next we'll move on to "What Hath God Wrought?" by William P. Grady. This is one of those wordy books that takes a little while to understand, but is well worth the effort! This book gives a detailed history of America's beginnings and how the values America holds today, including the Constitution, are founded deeply in Christian beliefs and Biblical values. This book takes us into the edgy world of the truth. We learn about persecution of varying faiths, the values our founding fathers and pioneers held, what was once right in America, and what has gone wrong since then. We have traveled a very slippery slope since the beginning of our country, and Grady takes us down a well documented path to the truth, one that you won't be likely to find in the history books of most public schools.
