What People are Saying About This

"From the Old Testament through the birth of early Christianity and into the most cutting-edge trends in the church today, it's all here. I can't say that I could detect even a smidgen of order, logic or coherence to any of it, but it is all here."
---Alan G. Padgett, Ph.D., professor of systematic theology, Luther Seminary, and author of Christianity & Western Thought, Volume 2

"Almanacs are a wonderful American tradition. From Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac to The Farmer's Almanac, people have been able to count on them to provide useful information, helpful hints about everything under the sun and occasional heart-warming stories. Year after year, they enrich our lives. Dr. Steve's Almanac is not like that."
---Gary W. Moon, Ph.D., vice president and chair of integration at Psychological Studies Institute, and author of Falling for God

"First there was Aquinas's Summa Theologica. Then there was Barth's majestic Church Dogmatics. Now there's The Original Dr. Steve's Almanac. Anyway, I think that is the correct chronological order."
---Mark A. Noll, Ph.D., Francis McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

"I kept telling his dad that lead-based paint wasn't a very good idea when we repainted his bedroom."
---Dr. Steve's mom
