Much like Thomas Paine's pamphlet, Common Sense, Rick Santorum's American Patriots is small in size but big in ideology. This book in not simply biographical sketch of Patriots who helped fight for liberty during the American Revolution. This book is more of a call to action for everyone who believes that we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Many of the people highlighted in this book played small roles in the Revolution. Individually, they did small things that together made a huge difference in America's fight for freedom. It is a reminder that even today, it is the small things that God calls us to do which may have a lasting effect on the world around us. We are wise to reflect on the contributions of these American Patriots. We are wiser still if we seek to be obedient to God who calls us to live in freedom.
