Daily Food For Christians

Interior Pages from our New Edition of "Daily Food for Christians."

In the 1800s, the American Tract Society published a little devotional book which was loved by many. It was beautifully bound and was called, "Daily Food for Christians." 

Original 1800s book, "Daily Food For Christians."

 We were able to obtain a copy of one of these books. The original edition is considered to be a miniature book because it measures a little over 2 inches by 3 inches in size.

   The book contains one year's worth of daily devotions. Each day includes 2 portions from Scripture and a selected verse from a hymn.  These are encouraging and inspiring.

This is a rare book and was difficult to find.  I wanted to reprint this book into a larger, easier-to-read volume.  I carefully transcribed the entire book into a new edition,using their same format.    It contains the complete text from the original. None of the words have been changed. 

 Our edition also includes these special features:
- Floral illustrations for each month from Currier & Ives. These drawings are from the 1800's.
- Photographs of some of the pages from the original 1800's edition.
- Printed on cream colored paper for easier reading.
- Preface by Mrs. Sharon White of "The Legacy of Home."  
This book was owned by Mrs. Elizabeth Prentiss, author of "Stepping Heavenward." She wrote about her love for this devotional:
 "I have had this little book thirty-three years, it has travelled with me wherever I have been, and it has been indeed my song in the house of my pilgrimage."
Our new edition is available in both paperback and hardcover.  Both editions are 215 pages.  The hardcover edition is especially sturdy and beautiful and will make an excellent addition to any home library.

If you are able to get a copy of this book, and like it, it would be a great help to me if you would post a review on Amazon. I would greatly appreciate it!
Thank you!
