On This Day in Christian History

This devotional book brings an insight into poignant historical event throughout Church history. While some stories are inconsequential (what seemed to me to be "filler"), the majority carry a very inspiring, motivating message. It has brought some very interesting devotional reading, spurring me to do further research and reading on the lives of some of the great Christians showcased in this book.

This book is formatted as a daily devotional, offering a glimpse into that particular day in Christian History, as well as a short Bible passage to go along with the story.

Overall, this was a good read. It was thought-provoking, encouraging, and uplifting. It showed heroes of the faith at their best... but also sometimes at their worst, showing that God can use anyone who is willing - even if they are weak and fallible.
