BY JOEL J. MILLER
OVERVIEW: The story of Paul Revere is the story of the American Revolution. Always smack dab in the thick of things, he was an ordinary citizen living in extraordinarily turbulent times. Revere played key roles in colonial tax fights and riots, the infamous Boston Massacre, the Tea Party, the Battle of Lexington and Concord, and even the ratification of the U.S.Constitution. In this fast-paced, dramatic account, Paul Revere's life pulses with energy as author Joel J. Miller explores his family and church life along with his revolutionary contribution as a spy, entrepreneur, express rider, freemason, and commercial visionary.
AUTHOR: Joel J. Miller is the author of two previous books, Bad Trip and Size Matters. His shorter writing has been featured in, among other publications, the American Spectator and Reason. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, Megan and two children, Fionn and Felicity.
MY REVIEW: When Michael Hyatt, CEO,Thomas Nelson Publishing comes across a book he feels is special and should be read by as many as possible, he gives away several copies--sometimes as many as one hundred.The Revolutionary Paul Revere is one of those books. I feel blessed to have received one of the free copies.
The Revolutionary Paul Revere is a special book for all those interested in the story of America's founding and its growth as a force for freedom in the world. I agree with William J. Bennett who said, "The story of Paul Revere--a hero of Massachusetts, a hero of America--was never more timely. Nor has it ever been better told than by Joel J. Miller. The Revolutionary Paul Revere gallops along with all the drama and intrigue of a great novel. ...This is a vital, and wonderful story."
