    Very interesting and informativeThis is a daily devotional with an interesting bit of Christian history for each day all year I really enjoyed it and will probably read it again

  2. Keith Beasley-Topliffe says:

    This is a collection of brief accounts of significant people and events in Christian history arranged by date except Feb 29 usually the death or birth date for a person or the date of the event Some are famous some obscure Some are early a few modern mostly defenders of biblical literacy and the great bulk are between the beginning of the Reformation and the end of the 19th century Overwhelmingly white men I have been reading this as part of my daily devotions from 1 Nov 2017 until yesterday 31 Oct 18 I found many of the readings interesting a few irritating I found most of the prayers usually one sentence superficial or pat Often they served the place of morals in Aesop's Fables telling me what I was supposed to have gotten out of the readingWho's done it better W Paul Jones in An Eclectic Almanac for the Faithful Robert Ellsberg in All Saints Daily Reflections on Saints Prophets and Witnesses for Our Time Richard P McBrien in Lives of the Saints overwhelmingly Catholic and Orthodox Those were part of my devotions in 2014 15 2015 16 and 2016 17 respectively

  3. Joyce Day says:

    Okay but Could Have Been BetterI enjoyed reading the short bios of Christians throughout the ages but was disappointed at the unbalanced approach that ignored many of the women of faith Reading this book one gets the feeling that with a few exceptions men are the only Christian heroes Even some of the entries that started out being about women shifted to shine the light on men in their lives There are other biases as well I was especially disappointed in this uote “France was not always the land of culture good food and men afraid to fight” Culture and good food are indeed parts of the French society but “men afraid to fight” That statement is mean unfair and unnecessary in the point the author wanted to make

  4. Linda M Poole says:

    Excellent daily devotions I’ve include this devotional in my daily devotions for the last couple years will continue to use it Very well written full of historical stories of the Christian faith

  5. Brenda says:

    Excellent daily devotional Short and easy to read Not deep in terms of Scripture study but lots of inspiring stories

  6. Donna says:

    More of daily readings from Christian history than a devotional nevertheless I learned a lot from this book and would recommend it

  7. Jay A. George says:

    Enjoyed reading about people who made a difference in the history of Christianityk I think everyone whether a history buff or not could benefit from knowing about these individuals in our past

  8. Samantha says:

    First a confession I am horrible at sticking to reading devotionals That is why I bought this one I thought that getting a daily injection of historical fun facts would help me build a better habit Unfortunately most of the days that I read this were rather lackluster The stories were only sort of interesting and not at all inspiring Some of them were even stories of people who worked against Christianity or persecuted Christians which I found odd It read like a history of the day calendar than a devotional So I'm still horrible at reading devotionals Sigh

  9. Cindy Keiger says:

    This was a different kind of devotional in that each reading was written around some aspect of a historical person I enjoyed learning a little about some of the familiar names and was especially glad to be introduced to some new to me people who have had a part in the history of the church Scoundrels heroes and ordinary people have sculpted the face of Christianity

  10. Evelyn says:

    God's Sovereignty Seen in Church HistoryThis book is titled a devotional I would title it as informational It includes stories of all kinds of people some saints some villains that have over the past 2000 years been a part of God's master plan for the church God is sovereign and is not limited An interesting and worthwhile read
