    This book, laid out in 365 daily readings, is a great introduction to people, places and events significant in the history of Christianity. We are transported over two thousand years of Christianity via stories, segments of historical documents and written personal accounts which add an air of authenticity to the facts.

    I am thrilled with this book because it is laid out in short, succinct daily readings that I can share with my son. He may not yet understand the significance of the events and people, but we have to start with him knowing about them. This book covers both so it can be used for children of all ages to teach them about Christianity. I particularly like that these bits of information provide a platform from which to base further investigation and study as Little Man grows and wants to know more.

    inspiration to persevere amid trials

    I'm thankful for the inspiration provided by this book.

    The entry about Paul - probably the greatest evangelist of all time - hit me hard. Paul talked a lot about patience, and accepting and learning from the obstacles of life - and he certainly had his share of hardship. This particular story talks about his shipwreck on Malta on his way to Rome after a two-year imprisonment in Caesarea.

    Paul's utmost goal was to proclaim "Christ and Him crucified." God blessed him for that, but man did everything in his power to stop him, delay him, discourage him, obstruct him and in all other ways try to keep him from proclaiming the Good News. Yet he persevered.

    Paul has taught me a lot about patience. As the book points out, "It was not in due time - but in divine time - that Paul reached Rome. His nerves held steady in the storm. His spirit remained patient in delay. He knew how to wait on his God."

    "On This Day in Christian History" is full of such stories, although you may not have heard of many of the people featured, or at least know much about them. Most of them are not "Bible characters" but mere historical figures whose names were in many ways obscure. Some were martyrs, some not, but all were heroes of the faith.

    If you need the courage to persevere amid trials, pick up this book and be inspired.

    This book has 365 amazing and Inspiring Stories about Saints, Martyrs, and Heroes in it. I received this book a while back from book sneeze.com and finally posting a review on it. As you open the book it starts from January 1st and ends on December 31st, every day has its own story of a person who served God and what took place during that time in history. The book made to be used as a devotional book but I'm sure you can read it any ways you want. The thing I like about this book is that I can use it as part of my son's homeschooling material when he gets older. I would recommend this book to those of you who like history.

    On This Day in Christian History is one of my favorite books. It can be read as a devotional or just for pleasure. It's also a great resource when looking for a short story to start a discussion/small group or Sunday school class. I'm so happy they reprinted this book. Now I can share it with friends.

    It has been said that if we don't learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. Lessons of great faith and perseverance are the forefront of this book by author Robert Morgan. Set up as a page-per-day read, I found it to be less of a devotional and more of a history text. There is a wealth of information on the perils of persecuted Christians in this book and as a history enthusiast myself, I really enjoyed it. While all of us need to be informed of the history of our faith, I wouldn't recommend this book to the faint-hearted, for most of the information could very well have been derived from Foxe's Book of Martyrs. I believe the person who would best benefit from this book would be one who already has a knowledge of church history and is seeking to deepen their knowlege of the past.

    Thomas Nelson Publishers provided a complimentary copy of this book for my review. The opinions are my own and I have not been required to publish a positive review.
