“On This Day in Christian History” by Robert J. Morgan

On This Day in Christian History: 365 Amazing and Inspiring Stories about Saints, Martyrs and Heroes

The author of this book gives brief biographical sketches of 365 different men and women from Christian history. The stories are arranged in daily readings, one short story for each day of the year. The day of the year correlates with a significant date in the life of the person being written about.

I really enjoyed this book, and learning more about a myriad of different men and women from history. While I wouldn’t call all of the people mentioned in the book a “Saint, Martyr, or Hero” as the book claims, I did appreciate the vast majority of those he wrote about. It was great to have my memory refreshed about many faithful Christians that I have learned about in the past, and also to learn about new men and women who lived, and many times died, for Christ. Many of the stories left me eager to learn more about that individual.

This book would be great to use along with your devotions, or as a brief reading to start or end your day. I read it cover to cover, but I think it would be more enjoyable in small portions spread over a period of time as was intended.

Disclosure: I received this book free as part of the BookSneeze review program from Thomas Nelson Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
