A reminder of how God uses ordinary people for extraordinary purposes Mar 20, 2007
I received this book as a gift from my parents last year and I'm about to purchase a couple of copies for friends in my small group from church. This book shows how the rubber meets the road, how everyday men and women throughout history have LIVED their faith.
It's easy to say you believe and to be a believer in a relatively peaceful environment. It's another thing altogether to turn your beliefs into action when faced with adversity, including death. In all of the 365 stories, there is proof that God can use any circumstance for his glory. And it's a reminder that all we need to do is have faith that He can do anything and use anyone.
Following each daily segment is a question or two that's thought-provoking and then a bible verse that brings the point home. The fact that these stories are about real people and real events dating back from before Christ was born to the 1900's shows how timeless God's message is and how it applies to each and every one of us, regardless of circumstance.
The One Year Book of Christian History Mar 9, 2007
An eye-opening look into significant historical events in Christianity as a daily devotional. Painstaking detail is researched by the authors, but each day's entry is crisp and concise. The presentations seem generally very fair, but Reformed readers will like this much more than Arminian readers. A few respectful accounts of Roman Catholics are given, but that church does not fare well overall in this selection (unsurprising to this reviewer). Some days are devastatingly moving. Good daily Scripture verses and questions to the reader for further consideration.

I gave this book to several friends, of mine, who tell me they are thoroughly enjoying the book, and the information they are gaining. I purchased the book, after having read a daily excerpt, about Christians being discriminated against, in centuries past. The reading seemed quite relevant, in relation to current events, and I thought it would be beneficial to learn more about Christian history.

Wonderful, please keep our American heritage going. Most of our public schools don't have heritage about our faith roots of this nation; & our founding fathers & mothers. Please get accurate heritage books from: http://wallbuilders.com Thanks you, Jennine
Wonderful Devotional Mar 17, 2006
For someone who enjoys History, this devotional puts the two things together that I love most: God and History. This book gives the reader an inside look at what Christians throughout History have done with their faith. It is an inspiring work and filled with new facts for everyday. I recommend it to everyone who wants to further their faith and grow in their knowledge of history.
