The full title is On This Day in Christian History: 365 Amazing and Inspiring Stories About Saints, Martyrs, and Heroes, which pretty much gives you all you need to know about what this work entails. This book offers a year's worth of daily readings about various historical times, ranging nearly 2,000 years, including inspirational tales of believers standing strong and overcoming, heart-wrenching stories of the abuse Christians have been through while fighting for their beliefs, humorous anecdotes of current Christian history and interesting narratives of Christ followers, some well known, some simply unheard of.
Each day's reading holds a new reason to be thankful to those who have gone before us and helped us be able to live out our faith as we do. After each story, there is also a relevant scripture listed to help solidify the message. This book is full of interesting history you most likely never learned in school, or church for that matter. And for those that don't consider themselves history buffs, the readings are very short, easy to digest and offer a great way to look deeper into your faith and why you believe the way you do. On This Day in Christian History would make a neat way to invest a little time in God's Word and church history in 2011!
