From the authors of America’s Holy Ground: 61 Faithful Reflections on Our National Parks
Make your next vacation a spiritual pilgrimage. The National Park Service oversees more than the 61 national parks; hundreds more monuments and historic sites mark where important events in America’s story occurred, protect unique natural landmarks, and remember those who changed history. From the Statue of Liberty to Harper’s Ferry to Devil’s Thumb, these national landmarks offer more than nature and history — they offer opportunities to think about our faith and our values. America’s Sacred Sites digs deeper into America’s historic landmarks with scripture, reflections, and a trio of questions to help you consider how you can better live out your faith.
America’s Sacred Sites explores an NPS site in each of the 50 states, from Mount Rushmore, Pearl Harbor, and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, to the lesser known Knife River Villages, New Orleans Jazz Historical Park, and Dinosaur National Memorial, to name just a few. As authors Brad Lyons and Bruce Barkhauer reflect on the history and significance of each site, they consider a unique trait of each landmark and connect it to your own life. Courage, mercy, leadership, liberty – these are just a few of the themes you’ll explore on this unique journey through America’s sacred sites.
