>On This Day in Christian History by Robert J. Morgan

>

Christian history is replete with fascinating stories and characters.  Some are inspiring.  Others are horrifying.  Some are widely known.  Others are rather obscure.  Whatever the case may be, however, all of the stories are absolutely fascinating.

Christian HistoryOn This Day in Christian History by Robert J. Morgan provides readers with an introduction to many of those people and events of Christian history.  Divided into 365 short stories, Morgan’s book provides just a small glimpse into the lives of heroes, villains, martyrs, and legends from 2000 years of Christian history. 

While not exactly a devotional, this book does provide food for thought as we walk through our daily lives.  Would we face hardships as boldly as the many  martyrs throughout Christian history?  Would we stand firm in our faith despite persecution from both government and church leadership?  Would we boldly journey to distant lands to proclaim Christ, knowing that an early death was practically guaranteed? 

Although brief one-page snapshots can never capture the depth of historical events and personalities, they can serve as an introduction of sorts, peaking the curiosity of the reader to learn more.  Morgan’s book is an excellent springboard for any lover of history. 

This book was provided to me for review by Book Sneeze.

I am a homeschooling preacher's wife and content editor for the Well Planned Gal. But, I also love to write just for the fun of it. I also process best through writing, and my thoughts tend to flow from things I learn through the Bible, interacting with my family, and moving through life in general. Thanks for joining me in my not quite ordinary journey.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
