27 Sketches from Winthrop to Wilkerson
'We will not hide them from their children, telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and His strength and His wonderful works that He has done...' (Psalm 78:4)
History should never be boring because when we look at what is going on in the world, we are seeing the very works of God. While there are evil events and God's judgment visits the nations again and again through the centuries, there are always redemptive events. The kingdom of Jesus Christ emerges here and there, and it is for us to take note of it and praise God for these amazing events.
This unique introduction to American history provides a survey of important events in American history, while digging deep into the real lives of the people who were there. Here you will find 27 vignettes of great American lives, all portraits of American faith. In God's good providence, He uses men and women of the faith to accomplish remarkable things. America carved out liberties unlike many other nations, thanks to godly men and women. When we see instances of faith in these lives, it is for us to recognize them and point them out to our children. They are examples for us (Romans 15:4, 1 Corinthians 10:6), and we will do well to learn from them.
The 27 vignettes include John Winthrop, William Bradford, Jonathan Edwards, Phillis Wheatley, Patrick Henry, Noah Webster, Daniel Boone, John Quincy Adams, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, Elisabeth Elliot, David Wilkerson, and others.
What Others Are Saying
American history overflows with rip-roaring, chest-thumping, and tear-jerking adventure stories. It is a romantic moral drama. Thus, it most assuredly should be told with a measure of passion, unction, and verve. It is, after all, the story of remarkable heroes—heroes of faith, courage, and vision. This wonderful new survey of the American story is everything an historical narrative ought to be: in it you'll encounter all the blood and thunder, faith and chivalry, pluck and fury, mystery and intrigue of God's good providence as it is worked out in the lives of more than two dozen heroes. Kudos!

As educational elites strive to deconstruct American history—calling good evil and evil good—Kevin and Generations produces the superlatively excellent volume, American Faith. While our 'beautiful inheritance' is being perverted by the fake-history spin of the prophets of falsehood, Generations tells us the truth, and in such an engaging and winsome volume!
