The Portable Patriot~Book Review

The Portable Patriot
Documents, Speeches, and Sermons That Compose the American Soul
By Joel Miller and Kristen Parrish

This book came around Memorial Day and I have taken the time to digest it.  It was a wonderful book full of different speeches and documents that trace America's Christian heritage.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  It was set up in chronological order and was a very interesting read.    It makes it easy to trace our heritage and also you can then look up time-lines and see what was going on in America's history at the time each document was made.  Also the authors put in background for the documents and speeches.  As it was original documents it has a very colorful and vivid language which we have lost.  It makes wonderful oral reading to share with older children.  As it is "portable" as it's name says it makes great reading in the car!!  It also makes some wonderful conversation starters for the family.  It is a book that I would recommend with much gusto!
