Character for Life: An American Heritage: Profiles of Great Men and Women of Faith Who Shaped Western Civilization

Portada
New Leaf Publishing Group, 2005 - 386 pàgines
An in depth study of famous American men and women who exhibited tremendous character in their respective eras. Meet Scripture-guided reformers like David Brainard and Sojourner Truth. Don Hawkinson has crafted an amazing book that records the true character and nature of early Americans, from the political, religious, and social justice arenas, includes well-known figures like George Washington, to more “obscure” great Americans like John Witherspoon and Benjamin Rush. Each profile runs 6–12 pages and provides readers/students with concise information for reports and presentations. Hawkinson has come to realize how Christians in American can impact the world for Jesus Christ. Character for Life, An American Heritage is the stories of people who were abandoned to the mission of Jesus Christ. Their love for God and their country should motivate us to not only treasure our “godly heritage” but inspire us to discover our role in the “Great Commission.”
