Apostle of Liberty: The World Changing Leadership of George Washington
This book is an absolute treasure. McDowell, with skilled, rich writing, goes well beyond just telling the story of George Washington’s life—he also illustrates, with inspiring, specific detail, the unique personal qualities that made Washington a successful leader and a man of such noble character. This book also beautifully explains the deeply rooted faith of Washington, and how it affected his decisions and actions and thus affected the destiny of the entire nation. I knew Washington was a man of faith, but I was surprised to learn just how much his faith played a role in his life. I like how McDowell uses factual accounts and information rather than just giving his opinion. This book inspired me in so many ways: to seek and value knowledge, to be humble, to have deeper faith, to give more service, and more!
