On This Day In Christian History
History buffs will love this book! On This Day In Christian History provides a story for every day of the year and offers a wealth of information to those who are interested in Christian history. In the back of the book, the author has provided a topical index which makes it easy to find the subject you are looking for whether it be parenting, prayer, courage, envy, and more. Each story is told on the date it actually happened.
Turn to February 14th and find out how the legend of St. Valentine crept into history. The story for June 3rd tells how the Puritan preachers of New England made sure their congregation didn’t sleep during service. June 16th tells the background of William and Catherine Booth, the couple who founded The Salvation Army. Entertaining, inspiring, thought provoking, and sometimes humorous, these stories will keep you reading. The author states in the beginning of the book that he has researched and verified these facts to the best of his ability, and any corrections that need to be made, will be published in future editions.
