You might buy copies for your whole family! We did.

This daily read will bring new knowledge of how God works in lives that even a well-informed person will find helpful--even challenging. The authors have assembled events in the lives of people down through history that have occurred on each day of the year, ranging across the whole of life experiences. I have been brought to tears on reading of the sacrifice made by some, challenged by the dedication to following Christ by others, and thrilled to learn of how many met and overcame obstacles that seemed insurmountable.
Starting our day by reading this book together, we have grown in our faith in Christ, and look forward to each day's new material. We're especially delighted that our grandchildren have become daily readers.
This devotional stirs me as I read of the commitment of those who have gone before us. Highly recommend this as we just bought it for all our graduating senior boys to take to college with them. My own copy is nearly worn out after several years of use.
I suspected I would like this book, but I had NO idea how it would bless me. Every morning... a cup of coffee, my bible and this book on my back deck.... priceless! I was inspired, challenged, humbled, and blessed to read of the faithfulness of those whose faith preceded my own.
We all stand on the shoulders of GIANTS who made sacrifices and faced obstacles that make our own more bearable. I've even gone back to this book for a second year. It's just that good! Now I've got to find another book like this one, because these stories are something all Christians should know about.
Gave these as gifts to church board members. Many use the book as part of their daily devotions. They especially like that the daily readings are short, but provide interesting information and are inspirational. I've had my book for some time and have read through it three times.
