On This Day In Christian History - Robert Morgan

Subtitle - 365 Amazing and inspiring stories about saints, martyrs and heroes. The author is pastor of the Donelson Fellowship in Nashville, TN. This book has a page dedicated to each day of the year with a short synopsis of that day in the history of the church. Everything from the middle ages to the 20th century is covered.

This book brings to light famous and not so famous people and events of the day including, Eric Lidell, Martin Luther, Gutenburg, Jonathan Edwards.. Some days lead into the next, which makes for an inspiring read, for instance, to see how Billy Graham preached his first sermon.
  This book would appeal to any fan of church history of any age. It would be an interesting book for for speakers, preachers, and teachers, and has a index by topic. I'm sure many students could use it as a resource for learning. The author has done exhaustive research on many areas, and has a way of making what some may see as a boring subject, very interesting. Even those who are not history buffs will enjoy this book.

I found it interesting that a lot of people are mentioned that a lot of us have never read about in any other resource, and the effect they have had on so many people.
