The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life. ~ Theodore Teddy Roosevelt, 26th U.S. President. 

It's refreshing to read a perspective on the foundations of our country that's not driven by partisan political parties. This book quotes ALL Presidents, BOTH Republican and Democrat. It tackles head on the mistakes and the triumphs of our flawed American history. ~ Rev. Rufus Smith, Sr. Pastor, Hope Presbyterian Church, Cordova, TN.

Exploring the Faith of America's Presidents is an engaging, enlightening and inspirational resource that examines the role faith has played in the presidency throughout American history.

Kendra Armstrong is an attorney, writer, speaker, patriotic American, and proud mother with a passion for seeking and teaching God's perspective on political and social issues and using that knowledge to change her world for Christ.

In addition to writing devotionals and Bible studies, Kendra is penning her first novel,a psychological thriller about an attorney who inherits a Mississippi plantation and is relentlessly haunted by her family's dark and deadly secret.
Kendra was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Rhodes College, her Master of Science in Psychology from the University of Memphis, and her Juris Doctor from the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law at the University of Memphis.
Kendra is a member of Hope Presbyterian Church in Cordova, Tennessee, where she has served as a Deacon, Women's Bible study and small group leader, Sunday School teacher, and member of the Women's Ministry Writing and Speaking Team.

My review

This book is based on a simple formula.  The US Presidents, chronological as far as I can tell, their religious affiliation and some famous and not some famous quotes by them. 
The quotes are backed up by biblical texts to support them.

The ease of the read really surprised me.  The next thing that stuck me was how well these quotes were chosen.  They all serve to inspire show leadership and help with growth in an individual. 
It is a really worthwhile read.

Thank you Amazon for the info on Deborah

Debbie Sprinkle is an ordinary woman who serves an extraordinary God. She grew up in St. Louis where she met and married her husband and attended college. She became a chemist and worked in research for a number of years.
Debbie's writing didn't actually start until much later when she and her husband had moved to Memphis and she had retired from teaching chemistry. Then Debbie began leading Bible studies at their church, Hope Presbyterian. The quality of her weekly emails led to an invitation to join the Women's Speaking and Writing Team at Hope, and to attend the 2009 "She Speaks" conference. At that conference, Debbie and Kendra Armstrong became friends and out of that friendship, their first book, "Common Sense and an Uncommon God" was born. It was later revised to "Exploring the Faith of America's Presidents."
Currently, Debbie is leading Bible studies at Hope and she and her husband are deacons. She is working on several books at the time--one of which is a mystery novel.
