Daily Thoughts from Our Founders and Events from the Revolutionary War by Dwight Crisp is a book written in the spirit of daily devotionals, broken down into two sections per page, with each page designated to cover a single day of the year, including February 29th. The first section begins with a quote from one of the Founding Fathers, titled Thought from the Founders. The second section delivers a detailed historical reference of what occurred on that specific day of the year during the American Revolution, titled On This Day in the American Revolution. With meticulous research and detail, Crisp provides an inspiring and in-depth look at the values and actions that continue to carry through the thread of America even today.
Daily Thoughts from Our Founders and Events from the Revolutionary War is singular in its approach and format, and Dwight Crisp's compilation offers up bite-sized bits of Americana that are as stirring as they are unique. While most readers are likely accustomed to daily devotionals that are religious in context, Crisp has produced a patriotic devotional reminiscent of Leo Tolstoy's A Calendar of Wisdom, taking the powerful quotes of America's founders and adding a piece of history to it. This is a fantastic source that is actually quite difficult to take an entire year to read and I admit I devoured my first pass in just a few days. That said, the material—like America herself—is timeless...and the beauty of this devotional is that I will be able to read it afresh, a page a day as intended, for many years to come.
