Looking Through History's Window
by David E. Young
Genre: Nonfiction, History
In growing up in a church, and then spending seven years in a Bible College and Seminary, I was blessed to hear many outstanding and gifted preachers and Bible teachers. Many used interesting stories or illustrations to drive their points home. In listing of some of these illustrations, I thought I would like to know more details. Sometimes I wondered (thankfully not too often) if the details of the story were really true or accurate as told. Beyond doubt, this could be partly attributed to years of reading “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” feature in virtually every newspaper’s Sunday comics section. With that in mind, I have included with each illustration not only a title, Scripture verse and topic word, but also the source of the historical story so anyone who is interested can, with the help of modern technology and internet databases, not only find more details regarding the story, but also find documentation to confirm that each story can be validated.
The details of every illustration are, as far as can be validated by historical records, are true.
David Young feels truly blessed! He is now retired and lives with his wife Ruth in Sequim, Washington where he enjoys spending time with his family, especially his 7 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren!
