Overview
Have you ever wondered who fired "the shot heard round the world" that fateful morning of April 19, 1775? Who were those brave men who stood against the best-trained army in the world? This book contains Jonas Clark's Sermon on the one-year anniversary and his eyewitness narrative of those events. None other but Jonas Clark could give such an accounting, for he was the pastor of those "embattled farmers" who stood their ground. Clark is herein giving an honest and accurate accounting of the Battle of Lexington. He is also giving testimony of the events of April 19 and answers the great question, "Who fired the first shot?"

There was no better-prepared place to inaugurate the first battle of the War for Independence than the little village of Lexington. For pastor Clark "discussed from the pulpit the great questions at issue, and that powerful voice thundered forth the principles of personal, civil, and religious liberty, and the right of resistance, in tones as earnest and effective as it had the doctrines of salvation by the cross." (J. T. Headley, Heroes of Liberty: Chaplains and Clergy of the American Revolution, 21.) "It was to the congregation, educated by such a man, that Providence allowed to be entrusted the momentous events of April 19, events which were to decide the fate of a continent?that of civil liberty the world over." (Headley, 23)

Today, the Battle of Lexington is little spoken of, for as a nation we have forgotten our history. We have neglected the heroes of our freedom and liberty. But there was a time when this day was remembered and odes were written to commemorate the occasion. Paul Revere's Ride and the Concord Hymn are two examples. (See Appendix, pages 75?88.) Our history books no longer tell the true story of Lexington, so we must.

(See Appendix, pages 75 88.)Our history books no longer tell the true story of Lexington, so we must. America is perishing for the need of preachers who apply God?'s holy Word to every area of life including personal, civil and religious liberty. The Church needs more pastors like Jonas Clark, a preacher who taught the great doctrines of salvation in Christ alone and the Biblical right to resistance, which gave his congregation courage to stand in the face of great odds. The Battle of Lexington should inspire every man, in all stations of life, to stand and make a difference. Rev. Christopher Hoops, Roseville, California

More About Jonas Clark

Jonas Clark was born on Christmas day, marking his life in obedience to Jesus Christ. He had six sons and six daughters, all but four living at the time of his death. Four of the daughters married clergymen. Rev. Clark graduated from Cambridge in 1752 and was ordained in Lexington three years later. In addition to being a fulltime clergyman, he was an industrious, hard-working farmer. He cultivated sixty acres of land, which he still owned at the end of his life.

As the pastor of the church at Lexington, he typically gave four sermons a week, written out and orally presented nearly 2200 sermons in his lifetime. His preaching was vigorous in style, animated in manner, instructive in matter, and delivered with uncommon energy and zeal, with an agreeable and powerful voice. His sermons were rarely less than an hour, often more, and in theological opinions he was considered amongst the Trinitarians and Calvinists. The spirit and temper of his life were just what the Gospel was designed to produce. He was a Christian in the highest and best sense of the term, shown to be such by a long and exemplary life and a faithful practice of the virtues he had preached to others. He was considered a patriot of the most ardent and decided character. In addition to all this, he witnessed the first outbreak of the War for Independence at Lexington.

Jonas Clark lived in Fort Lauderdale Fort Lauderd. Jonas Clark was born in 1730 and died in 1805.

What Readers and Reviewers are Saying  Jan 13, 2009
It's American History Month, a great time to read recent books about the American Revolution!

For younger readers may I suggest

"The Battle of Lexington : a sermon and eyewitness narrative" by Jonas Clark, pastor, Church of Lexington (Nordskog Publishing)

The original title of this book was "The Fate of Blood-thirsty Oppressors, and GOD's Tender Care of His Distressed People, 1776". The little book also contains four poems about the era : "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; "Lexington" by Oliver Wendell Holms; "Lexington" by John Greenleaf Whittier; and "Concord Hymn" by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

This remarkable document is told by a pastor who found eight of his parishioners dead and many more wounded in the aftermath of the Battle of Lexington, where was fired "the shot heard 'round the world." Everything in the world changed on that day . Now we have an eyewitness to tell us about this earth-shattering event! Pastor Jonas Clark's witness reminds us that we must stand and make a difference for the Lord.

I'm Doc Kirby and that's a Book Bit!

"Patriot Pastor" Garrett LearI appreciate the scholarship of Nordskog Publishing by bringing the April 19, 1776 sermon of Patriot Pastor Jonas Clark in the beautifully produced "The Battle of Lexington".

This sermon, although 232 years old, is very much needed for today as it describes how a people can become far from life in CHRIST and how they can be restored to THE FATHER'S will... it is about what we today call revival.
This sermon message describes the proper role of government in men's lives and what happens when government becomes tyrannical.

"Patriot Pastor" Garrett LearThe Battle of Lexington is about the cause of mankind... freedom, liberty and reliance on THE GOD of THE BIBLE... even its colorful cover elicits an American response which touches posterity.

This book and the associated appendix is a must have. As a direct descendant myself of The Founding Fathers and having been born in Lexington, I am giving this book to every preacher, legislator and patriot that I can afford to.

As a companion to "Lexington", I also recommend "GOD'S Ten Commandments". One can not understand America's foundations with out the truth expressed in this little book with a very big message. Both books are economically priced and sized just right to be handed out for
pocket carrying.

No other king but KING JESUS!
