My latest review for Booksneeze is On This Day in Christian History by Robert J. Morgan. Morgan also authored the book that I previously reviewed, Then Sings My Soul, which provided historical accounts of some of the world’s most beloved hymns and carols.
In On This Day in Christian History, Morgan gives a daily recount of notable figures of the Christian faith, ranging from the Roman Empire to modern times. The book contains 365 stories of martyrs, saints, preachers, and other heroes, one for each day of the year, designed for daily devotional reading. Each story also includes a Scripture reference.
There is a topical index at the back of the book, which makes the book a handy reference for preachers or speakers searching for stories on various topics to include in their sermons or speeches.
If, like me, you like history, I think you’ll find this book an enjoyable addition to your daily devotional time.
