Revive Your Mind, Complete Your Education, and Converse Confidently About Our Nation's Past
by David S. Kidder & Noah D. Oppenheim
Synopsis: In the same stylish gift format of the best-selling series opener, this new Intellectual Devotional offers daily digests of wisdom from American history- 365 brief lessons to stimulate the mind every day of the year.
Modeled after those bedside books of prayer and contemplation that millions turn to for daily guidance and growth, the first book in the Intellectual Devotional series—offering secular wisdom and cerebral nourishment—was an instant hit when it appeared in 2006.
Now authors David Kidder and Noah Oppenheimer have turned to the rich legacy of American history for their selection of daily readings.
From Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin to Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Boston Tea Party to the Gettysburg Address, the giant figures and pivotal events in our national heritage provide a bountiful source of reflection and learning that will refresh knowledge, revitalize the mind, and open new horizons of intellectual discovery.
