From the authors of America’s Holy Ground: 61 Faithful Reflections on Our National Parks. The National Park Service oversees more than the 61 national parks; monuments and historic sites mark where important events in America’s story occurred, protect unique natural landmarks, and remember those who changed history. Brad Lyons and Bruce Barkhauer help you consider how your faith and values are reflected in those treasured places. America’s Holy Sites: 50 Faithful Reflections on Our National Monuments and Historic Landmarks visits an NPS site in each state, considering a unique trait of each place and connecting it to your own life. Courage, mercy, leadership, liberty – these are just a few of the themes you’ll explore on this unique journey. A scripture verse and a trio of questions take your experience deeper.
