Overview

Because history is so rich and so resplendent, every day is an anniversary. Not a single date fails to offer great lessons in heroism or ignominy, brilliance or foolishness, inspiration or admonition. There is not a day in the year that does not point us toward the remarkable cultural and spiritual legacy of our Christian inheritance in Western civilization. And there is not even a wrinkle in time that does not bear the obvious imprint of God's own good providence. The Christian Almanac is a book of days that recounts the significant moments in Christian and Western history. Filled with famous births, deaths, events, and notable anniversaries of the last two thousand years, it is both a thorough daily almanac and a vast collection of fascinating information -- a book to browse and to study. The Christian Almanac is an informative and enlightening book that is ideal for every home, classroom, and library.

    If you love history you will love this informative book.

    I love bites and pieces of history, and I have a desire to read through the Bible in one year. This book has both. It is easy to read, and informative. This book is more than a list of interesting facts, it gives you insight into the culture of the day. A great gift for any Christian history buff.
