In 1776, 56 men signed their names on a document that they knew might well mean their certain deaths as traitors to England.
Standing on principles of faith and liberty, these men forged a powerful call for freedom and human dignity still resonating today in America. Yet, historical revisionists have distorted or attempted to wipe away every trace of this nation`s Christian heritage, including the heartfelt faith of these founding fathers.
More than simply facts and figures, For You They Signed provides an abundance of resources within one volume, including: a full year of life-changing, challenging family or group devotional character studies, over 90 illustrations, biographical summaries, and insightful quotes, character quality definitions, Patrick Henry`s speech delivered to the signers, the Christian nature of state constitutions, and the Christian nature of America`s universities.
The Declaration of Independence remains one of history`s most enduring achievements, and this text will help you value those freedoms these men fought for in an insightfully fresh way. It will also assist you in catching the God-given vision of these faithful new Americans, igniting a fire for your family, community, and the generations to come. Here is a volume that should be found in every private and public library in America...a meticulously documented look back to the true birth of our nation.

As part of the process, he constructed a “House of Heroes” (Neh. 3:16) by which those in his generation could learn of the courage and sacrifices made by previous ones. Through For You They Signed , Marilyn has created a much-needed inspirational “House of Heroes” for this generation." ~ David Barton /Wallbuilders

"What a unique generation they were, those men of 1776. The intellectual culmination of eighteen centuries of Christian civilization, they possessed not only the most profound intellectual attainments, but each one was prepared to sacrifice his life, liberty, and sacred honor for the ideals of liberty. They were inheritors from the faithful guardians of English common law and constitutional tradition but were now developing a new application for The United States of America.
In a day when Americans confuse heroism with celebrity, and sacrifice with the lateness of a government welfare check, the new book For You They Signed by Marilyn Boyer comes as a refreshing reminder that our Founding Fathers were different, not only different, but exemplars of what we as Americans once were and ought to be again.
Not since B.J. Lossing’s Lives of the Signers in 1848, has an historian so lovingly described the character and fortitude of the men who signed their names to the document that proclaimed independence from a tyrannical government. They risked their lives and those of their families and were forced to flee the invasion of a foreign army and attacks by their own neighbors. In the providence of God, most of them survived to celebrate the triumph of their cause. Most of the signers were men well known for their Christian lives; the legacy sealed by their autographs has blessed the whole world.
Mrs. Boyer has included a helpful study page and appropriate scriptures which make this book a handy teaching tool for learning the lives and lessons of the Founding Fathers. This is, in fact, one of those books that need to be in every family’s library, and parents would do well to insure that the next generation does not forget these men and the price they paid for our freedom."~ Bill Potter- Historian-The Circa History Guild- Roswell, Georgia

What our customers say:
"I wanted to sincerely thank you for the For You They Signed Book. My 17 year old step son--who has had a very on again, off again relationship with the Lord-started reading it this school year. He wasn`t too happy about it at first, but now he`s finding it fascinating. He`s learning about the Lord and our Founding Father`s faith. It`s been a great tool to get the Word in him, he`s even been quoting it on Facebook! It`s been really neat to see him seriously thinking about his faith.Thank you for your diligence in reporting on our founding fathers, in a way that`s helping my son grow closer to God!"
