Robert Morgan says in the preface: "Christian history provides humanity's most riveting storehouse of adventures. Its menagerie of characters, both saintly and eccentric is the most colorful host of men and women ever assembled on one stage."
I love the book, all of the stories, and especially the Bible verse at the end of each page. What research! What a great idea for the younger generation who need a "firm foundation" for our faith. An index is very helpful - this author thinks of everything! Those to whom I have gifted this book thank me over and over. Read the stories out loud - discuss them with friends - all ages, all faiths can appreciate an overview of how and why Christianity continues to be practiced all over the earth. 365 stories are not enough, of course.
I recommend this book with no reservations. Wake up and be surprised. Thanks for reading my review and thanks to Robert J. Morgan for all his inspiring books.
What I find lacking from a "daily devotional" perspective is the seed of application, a question of "so what does it mean to me? Are we willing to speak out for truth in spite of accepted traditions, in the case of the two men I cited? There is room on almost all of the pages for a simple thought-provoking question. There have been a few days where the story leads to a "So, now what?" question in my own mind.
