We’ve read about Sergeant Alvin C. York…

In 1917, Alvin was drafted to go to World War I. His religious beliefs made him unsure whether it was even right to fight in a war. After much prayer and serious thought, Alvin decided that freedom was worth fighting for and set out to become the best soldier he could be.

Paul Revere was a topic of discussion…

Paul was a devoted patriot and joined a group of men called the Sons of Liberty who wanted to see America freed from British rule and unfair British laws…Paul joined the army and used his metalworking skills to fashion bullets and cannons for the American army.

We read the story of Dwight D. Eisenhower…

Throughout his presidency, President Eisenhower often spoke of the importance of faith in the stability and security of our nation. In one speech he said, “Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life.”

To celebrate and honor American heroes this Veteran’s Day, we’ve been looking to The Young American Patriot’s Bible for stories of men and women of honor and faith.

More about The Young American Patriot’s Bible from Tommy Nelson

Now, especially for children, a Bible that features the history of the American heroes who helped to shape our Christian nation.

The New King James Bible® text is wonderful for study, and the 64 color pages are packed with articles about the true American heroes who contributed to making this nation great. Children can learn about God’s word and how our country’s early leaders used God’s wisdom to make the country we live in today.

I’m not usually a NKJV kind of girl, but it fits well with the historical nature of this Bible!

The stories of American heroes throughout this Bible have been a central part of our homeschool social studies lessons this week and the boys have been asking to read more and more! Big J even read the story of Sergeant York with very little help from me!

I love the emphasis on how our nation was shaped by men and women of faith – religious freedom, the importance of prayer for our nation and the praying for the protection of our soldiers have all been discussed because of this Bible this week!

This jacketed hardcover Bible retails for $26.99, but can be found on Amazon for only $19.43 – totally worth adding to your home library!

{There is also an adult version of this Bible, which inspired the children’s version! You can find it on Amazon as well!}
