“Packed with a wealth of information for anyone interested in Christian history.”

What happened in Christian history on the day you were born, the day you were married, or any other special day? Find it all in On This Day in Christian History: 365 Amazing and Inspiring Stories about Saints, Martyrs and Heroes by Robert J. Morgan.

When I received this book for review, I instantly went to the special days in my life and found that John Calvin, the French Protestant Reformer, died on my birthday. His

I would like to learn more about Christian history, but the prospect seems rather daunting. I was quite happy, then, to receive a free review copy of the book "On This Day in Christian History." The author is Robert J. Morgan, who also wrote the best-selling "Then Sings My Soul." Each day's entry is brief, but compelling and informative, and accompanied by supportive Bible verses. The book is very readable, thanks to a well-chosen typeface and layout.

I found the book a very enjoyable read, thoug

I received a free copy of "On This Day in Christian History 365 Amazing and Inspiring Stories about Saints, Martyrs and Heroes" by Robert Morgan to review courtesy of BookSneeze.com. The book features stories of various religious figures throughout Christian history. It's similar to Catholicism having a saint of the day.

Each day you can read an inspiring short story about a saint, martyr, or hero. Like today is the birthday of Augustus Montague Toplady, according to the book. He wrote the famous

On this day in Christian History is a collection of 365 short stories about Saints, Martyrs and Heroes. The author, Robert J. Morgan, describes it as "an armchair tour of the chronicles of Christianity in a devotional format".

Each story is told in bite size form covering just one page and includes a quote from a relevant passage of the Bible at the bottom for easy reference.

The stories, told on the date they occurred, are interesting and in some cases inspiring, in others amusing. A nice way to

Robert Morgan ~On This Day In Christian History~
Robert Morgan shares with us 365 true stories about people from all walks of life from saints to sinners.


This book is very educational, shows you when, what and who did what, people that really made an impact on Christianity. Some names are very recent and when can recognise them right away for example mother Theresa and a very well known man who has helped millions of people all across the country, can you guess who he is? Billy Graham.

I have read many devotional books over the years, and this one is my favorite hands-down. Each day is like a small, fascinating history lesson, from some event that happened on that date in history. The writing is really good - and I found each day's event interesting.

Some devotional books feel like the author had to really work to make 365 days worth of content. This book felt curated, as if the author could kick out these historical gems forever. I looked forward to reading this every day.

I think this is the best Christian, history-related book I've read in a long while. It's jam-packed with dates, facts, names, places, events, and much more! I loved it so much that I finished it in well under a year, even though it's aupposed to be read in a year as a daily devotional.

I would definitely recommend this book to all my friends! You won't regret it; it's truly incredible!

Excellent, excellent book. I have bought it for gifts for two or three friends. I don't think any of them appreciated it like I wanted them to. I am going to begin reading this book again today. The title says what it is about. I am not one so much for daily inspirational readings, but I do like church history, and I do love a story.

Liked especially the "Index of Selected Illustrations" cross reference tool in the back. Used this book primarily as a devotional at first, but the index helped to find things later for a variety of topics.

It was much more enjoyable and entertaining than I expected. The geographical and temporal variety was also considerable. It was odd reading a devotional book in a 2-month span, but overall it was a pleasant and informative read.

Booksneeze.com provided my copy in exchange for an honest review.

Of course, whether this book is considered good can depend on what day of the year it is. Overall it's worthwhile and interesting, but the language is so lofty, that it's hard to just enjoy the stories.

This is a collection of daily readings built around an event in church history associated with today's date. A blend of trivia, history, inspiration, & challenge.

This is about the third time that I have tried to get through this book. It's just not happening. I can not get into this book.

"Fantastic book divided into 365 one-page sections about Christians who endured various trials for their faith in Jesus over the last 2,000 years. Inspiring, informative, and encouraging!"
