Book Review - Does God Still Bless The USA?: A Plea For A Better America by Lee Greenwood

In honor of Memorial Day, what better book to review than one from the man who gifted us with the beautiful song, "God Bless The USA."

In his new book, "Does God Still Bless The USA?: A Plea For A Better America," Greenwood takes a look at how his song has meant to much to Americans, and he sees for America's future.

About The Book:

What an incomparable gift Lee Greenwood gave us with 'God Bless the U.S.A', a song ingrained in America's soul. It endures as one of the most loved patriotic songs of the last century. This legendary, award-winning country music artist now offers personal insights into America's challenges and her future in his book, Does God Still Bless the U.S.A.? The book calls for citizens to embrace an authentic patriotism while pointing out problems that simply should not be happening in our country.

When our ancestors landed in America, they believed their 'inalienable' rights came from a God who loved them and blessed them with the opportunity to establish a new nation. Unapologetically, Lee urges the return to faith and the founding principles that have proven to be the strength of our civilization. Each chapter illuminates areas essential for maintaining our freedom, prosperity, and safety. Lee Greenwood believes America is at a crossroads and people are wanting someone to tell the truth.

Greenwood gives his readers a intimate look at his beliefs, both religious and patriotic, in this fascinating book. He tells it like he sees it - this country needs to find it's patriotic roots once again to bring it back to being the greatest country in the world. In addition to personal stories and contributions from his family, Greenwood includes personal letters from a selection of the many people for who the song "God Bless The USA" has meant so much.

Included with the book is a 30-day prayer plan, "Prayers Of A Patriot," that Greenwood and his wife have developed for those who feel a need to pray those so important prayers for our country.

I highly recommend this book.
