The One Year Christian History Devotional by E. Michael and Sharon Rusten
“All things happen just as God decided long ago.” (Ephesians 1:11)
In this daily devotional, the authors help the reader gain a deeper appreciation for the God of history who is sovereign over all people, circumstances and time. The authors state in their introduction that “God is the author of history and as such is intimately involved with every detail of life…In this book we highlight an event associated with each day of the year. These events teach us some things about God and His dealings with human-kind. Our desire is to make the stories come alive by giving readers a glimpse of real people behind the historical event. Each daily reading ends with a reflection designed to help readers interact with a historical account and learn the lesson God has for us.”
Some of the historical characters you will read about are D.L. Moody, Billy Graham, C.H. Spurgeon, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Shu-Tsu Nee (“Watchman” Nee), Tisquantum (Squanto) and many other lesser known saints that God mightily used. After reading and reflecting upon these historical figures and events, the reader can not help but see more clearly and have a deeper appreciation for God’s sovereignty over all events in history!
