The Book of Amazing Stories


The Book of Amazing Stories is a 90 day devotion book filled with stories about people who have had an impact on the world.  I have read all of the devotions in the book, because I am a sucker for a good story…and there are many to be found in The Book of Amazing Stories by Robert Petterson.

Each day, Petterson tells the story of a memorable person from past. In each person’s story, there is a surprising turn or unexpected twist. I enjoyed the unknown stories of some people I knew and others I wasn’t familiar with at all. The days are numbered, but not dedicated to specific days.  At just a few pages in length, the daily devotion can be read in just a few minutes.

My favorite story Petterson tells is that of  Nellie Clyde Wilson. It is actually the first daily reading in the book! In fact, the first story is what made me interested in reading the book. Not every story is as riveting as the first, but I was I found each of the 90 interesting and inspiring.

This book would make an excellent graduation gift, stocking stuffer, or a gift for an employee.  I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher. I was not required to give an honest review. All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated.
