Review: America the Beautiful by Sri Chinmaly

America the Beautiful is a one-of-a-kind meditation on the moral and spiritual roots of our nation. Written in approachable but inspired language, this book evokes the spirit of the Founding Fathers and the great luminaries who have graced our nation's soil, and presents their views clearly and simply in both poetry and prose. This is a rare glimpse into the soul of America presented by one of the greatest philosophers of our time. America the Beautiful is at once a reminder of our nation's deep moral heritage as well as a call-to-action to all Americans to broaden their commitment to the ideals upon which our nation was founded and upon which it is still sustained. This book is sure to inspire both young and old from all backgrounds and countries to the unlimited potential our great nation possessed and still possesses.

Received from the publisher for review.

This slim little volume certainly packs a punch. It offers an interesting perspective on our nation from a non-native author.  The little tidbits of information are beautifully sized so one can read one or more at a time and meditate on their message.  Think of them as truffles for the mind - rich morsels to be slowly savored.  This nice volume is a good option for those who wish for a positive perspective of America's past from someone who who truly did love our nation.

★★☆☆ = Liked It
