Over one thousand quotes, scripture verses, and poetry selections are included in this sweet-sized devotional (4"x6") that will help inspire and guide you throughout the year. The Cloud of Witness is a high-quality reprint of the 1891 edition compiled by Edith Gell. It is a durable heirloom book printed in grayscale and housed in a rich coated-linen cover with a golden bookmark to hold your place. Each week a different theme is highlighted with selections from such luminaries as George MacDonald, William Wordsworth, Lord Tennyson, William Shakespeare, Ralph Waldo Emerson and others. A fresh forward has been added by Nancy Kelly of Sage Parnassus which elucidates Charlotte Mason’s use of this book as a gift to her House of Education graduates. In addition, a high-quality color image of Holman Hunt’s The Light of the World replaces the black and white image from the 1st edition. This thoughtful volume will comfort and guide anyone who wishes to meditate on the many truths found between the covers as well as make a perfect gift that will last a lifetime. We at Riverbend Press were very happy to work with Nancy Kelly on this project. Nancy had a vision for this wonderful little book and together we were able to make it a reality. We are pleased to add it to our growing list of Charlotte Mason books and look forward to future Charlotte Mason-related projects with Nancy involving books and other beautiful things.

The cover is a fitting promise of its contents. I've found reading from "The Cloud of Witness" is akin to having a new, satisfying gift to open each day and an encouragement knowing others are daily reaping from the same great thoughts as well. With the likes of Shakespeare, Ruskin, Browning, and Emerson sharing the same pages as Scripture, their words seem to catch and reflect the light, producing a kaleidoscope of Beauty for both morning revival and turning over throughout the day.
The quality of the book is wonderful (I catch my 11 year old daughter holding it because it just feels and looks so nice) and you can tell that the poem and scripture is printed as original. One more thing to love. If you are looking for the type of book described, you will not be disappointed.
Don't know the Liturgical calendar, no worries - one of the passionate readers for this treasure has put out a google calendar accessible on the Cloud Of Witness Facebook page that helps you follow along! Enjoy your reading.
I am so grateful to Nancy Kelly and the wonderful people at Riverbend Press for making this volume available again! As one reviewer mentioned, this was a gift that Charlotte Mason gave her students when they finished their time in her teacher's training school. What a creative and thoughtful person Charlotte was to think of a gift that would unite her alumni in spirit and purpose as they scattered across the world to share her ideas and educational methods.
As I follow along in this book with my fellow home educators, I am daily encouraged for the work ahead of me. Knowing that other like-minded people around the world are taking comfort and courage from these same words is thrilling!
It is tremendously difficult to describe the depth and breadth of this small (4x6) but mighty book. I'd urge you to buy one, so you can see for yourself!
