Book Review: On This Day in Christian History by Robert Morgan

Booksleeve.com sent me the book On This Day in Christian History by Robert Morgan to review. This book is a daily devotional that tells a brief story about a famous person in Christian History for every day of the year. The person was generally born on, or had something momentous happen to them on, that date in history.

I was excited to get this book to use with my children to help them (and me) learn about famous Christians from the past. I realized, as I read through it, that I would need to preview the stories. Most are wonderful, but a few deal with infidelity and such that are more "adult" topics than I want to get into with my children at this point. Overall, they are enjoying the stories about famous Christians though.

The daily readings are short and filled with good information and a nice devotional thought. The accompanying Bible verse generally seems to be a paraphrase of the actual verse, which isn't my preference, but overall, this is a great book for daily reading.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
