Truth. Valor. Words of Honor. Faith. The 4th of July is not only about a moment in time for America's break away from the Kingdom of Great Britain(modern United Kingdom). It should remind us of how we as believers are free too. Free from the chains of the enemy if we believe on God's Son.

As Christians, we can take back what the enemy has taken. As you read these books ask yourself some questions:

  • How has the main character triumphed? At first, did they seek the Lord or tried their own way?
  • If you were the minor character, what would you have done?
  • Is every antagonist evil? Why or why not?
  • If the book is a part of a series, was this particular book better?
  • What does the 4th of July mean to you? How about your independence?

*You will find many of these books on Christianbook.com, however, check them out also on Amazon.com, Bn.com as well as your local public libraries.
