Format: Paperback
The impressive collaboration of George Grant (Professor of Moral Philosophy, Bannockburn College, Franklin, Tennessee) and Gregory Wilbur (Professor of Aesthetics, Bannockburn College, Franklin, Tennessee), The Christian Almanac: A Book Of Days Celebrating History's Most Significant People And Events is now in a newly revised and expanded second edition. Day by day, it recounts the births and great deeds of remarkable Christian individuals, essays concerning these notable figures' life and works, scripture readings that allow one to to read through the Bible in one year, liturgical feast days and holidays where appropriate, and much more. An immensely packed treasure trove of reminders why every day is sacred, compiled with an index for easy reference.

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.

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

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By L. L. Lynn on October 14, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is one of the most valuable resources in our home education "program".
The content and layout is very well thought out and effortless to follow.
We use it as a morning devotional and historical overlay to begin our day.
I read aloud the main story, the timeline of events, and the quote for the day.
My kids (ages 17 & 13) read aloud the OT & NT passages.

It serves as solid time of togetherness in building knowledge, vocabulary, and understanding.
The Bible reading is very do-able if you are willing to give the whole time of reading about 40 minutes.
That we do this together, makes it enjoyable and memorable for us all.
It whets the appetite for learning by exposing the vastness of HIStory in a few short minutes, one day at a time.

It would make a thoughtful graduation or wedding gift.
