5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrating History's Most Significant People And Events September 12, 2004

5.0 out of 5 stars HIStory, just right July 8, 2009
Format:Paperback
Once in a while, one finds abundantly rich resources and depth at one's fingertips. This tool is a sampling of the many years of study by the authors. Many of us would prefer a better education in history, finding time to do so is next to impossible. While focusing on Christian history, this day by day reference allows those of us in the "normal" world a sampling of people, places and events that have shaped our past and, in turn, impact our future. In only a few minutes a day, we can learn and share with our children interesting and insightful glimses into history without setting aside hours and hours of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perspective February 3, 2012
By seeme
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading the Almanac puts life in perspective. Many things have been tried before my lifetime and some of them are repetitive. Love the quote they used in the introduction. 'Every day that passes should be lived in light of the past, in light of the future, and in light of eternity.' -Thomas Chalmers
