Review: For You They Signed by Marilyn Boyer

This book is an amazing resource for homeschool parents as they study the foundation of the United States of America, or for parents who want to supplement their children's education with character study from the biographies of great men!

 

For You They Signed covers each of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence.  The book begins with the text of the declaration, as well as a list of the signatures.  A chapter is devoted to each man, divided by state.  The chapters vary in length from 3 pages, to 9 pages, depending on the man being discussed.   Each chapter contains the following information:

  • quick facts about the man in a sidebar

  • biographical sketch

  • portrait

  • character quality

  • summary of his public service

  • discussion questions for family use


 

This book can be used to enhance history studies, or family character and Bible study.  It is a wonderful reference book, with a Christian worldview.  Obviously, this book will not appeal to those looking for secular materials. It is clearly a Christian book.  I really can't say enough wonderful things about this book ... I just want to keep looking at it and reading more about the lives of these famous men who helped form our country.  It is a treasure for a Christian homeschool family.

  1. I enjoyed your review. The book by F. Schaffer - Christian Manifesto is also good on values of our founding fathers. Also I have values talks on my web site.
