What The Timetables of History did for the world at large, The Christian Almanac has done for Christianity. For each day of the year a two-page entry includes a famousquotation concerning virtue or faith, important events in Church history that occured on that day, a list of appropriateChristian feast days, a brief chronology of significant events in secular history, and a story or biography about a famous Christian. Scripture readings in both the Old and New Testaments at the beginning of each entry provide a program for reading through the Bible in one year.
Time is a deeply Christian concept, informing everything from our understanding of the Creation of the world to the doctrine of Christ's incarnation. This invaluable resource illuminates not only the progress of the Church throughout the last two millennia, but the relation of sacred events and people to secular ones, how they impact each other, how they are bound together to form history as designed by God. Excellent as an aid to serious study or just for browsing, The Christian Almanac is a book of days demonstrating Our Lord's hand among His people, and by extension the entire world.
