Lynne Basham Tagawa’s new book, Sam Houston's Republic ($18.99, paperback, 978-1-61996-779-3; $9.49, e-book, 978-1-61996-780-9) focuses on the life of Sam Houston, a historical figure. Readers learn much about what was important to him: the rule of law, and in his later life, the gospel of Christ. Written from a Christian perspective, this book attempts to bring Texas history to life for both students and history lovers of all ages.
“[This] is a textbook that is not written by committee. To my knowledge there is no other book like it,” states the author. “[The takeaway is] a love of learning in general, and a recognition of the rule of God in history, especially as He works by raising up great men.”
Of her credentials, the author expresses “As an educator, my passion is to see students learn. They need good resources to entice them. Christian parents need resources that will reinforce what they teach their sons and daughters at home. This book was born out of this need.” Married and the mother of four sons, she has taught in Christian schools and at home. The Tagawas reside in Texas.
