Got this as a Christmas gift and am enjoying it immensely! For each day there is a BIble verse, a prayer, and a devotion connected to a key person or event in Christian history, a very user-friendly way to delve into history and look at how our "spiritual ancestors" lived out their faith. I'm seeing a lot of familiar names here - John Wesley, Martin Luther, Corrie ten Boom, Billy Graham, Mother Teresa - but also some lesser-known Christians in all walks of life - not just preachers and missionaries but athletes, artists, musicians, even politicians! The variety here is wonderful - one day a devotion about someone from the 20th century like Billy Graham, the next a saint from the 3rd century who became a martyr for Christ. If you know someone who loves history - or even someone who doesn't, but enjoys making new friends for the soul - this is a delightful and engaging book, My only complaint is that it is so easy to read that it's tempting to sit down and read it straight through instead of reading one devotion per day.Was this review helpful?
