Rick Santorum to Author American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom



Stand Your GroundVerona, PA – Patriot Voices Chairman and former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum announced today that Tyndale House Publishers will publish his upcoming book American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom. The book will release on October 2, 2012.

American Patriots highlights the heroic men and women who valiantly fought to secure our God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness-not only for themselves but also for countless future generations. Their stories provide reminders of the extraordinary faith, courage, and determination that set this country on the path to greatness centuries ago, as well as inspiration for future generations of great American patriots.

The book will include a foreword by William J. Bennett, former United States secretary of education and New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Virtues.

"This book was written to remind us who we are," Santorum says. "Americans today are faced with a decision. Do we want to leave our children a country that believes in the God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit happiness? Or do we want to entrust the state to provide for us in exchange for our freedom?"

The book is broken into three sections: Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness, each of which highlights unsung American heroes such as Peter Francisco, Nancy Morgan Hart, and Elias Boudinot-Patriots whose actions and contributions to the cause embody these ideals. The book concludes with a call to action from Santorum.

"Senator Santorum has done a phenomenal job articulating the values and ideals this country was founded on through the stories of these twenty-five unsung heroes and heroines of the Revolutionary War," says senior acquisitions editor at Tyndale Carol Traver. "In many ways, this book is this generation’s Profiles in Courage."

Senator Santorum continued, "Just as this book shares the stories of those who fought for our founding principles more than 200 years ago, Patriot Voices is fighting to protect those very same principles today."

Rick Santorum founded Patriot Voices in June 2012 as a grassroots and online community of Americans from across the country committed to promoting faith, family, freedom, and opportunity in accordance with the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Patriot Voices is uniting one million voices through a common belief in American exceptionalism, entrepreneurship, and personal responsibility.
