The World Religious Anecdote

If you are looking for a christian book with real value, look no further.

This is going to be the start of hopefully many posts, in which I will go through the whole seven hundred and twenty-one pages of, “The World Religious Anecdote.”  Published in 1872, this wonderful book, authored by Edwin Paxton Hood, is almost 140 years old.  In the Preface the author notes that, “The favourable reception of a previous volume, ‘The  World of Anecdote,’ has led to the compilation and publication of this, ‘The World of Religious Anecdote.’ ”  It is my hope that this forgotten book will one day be in full on the pages of this blog.

F Y I – I calculated that blogging two pages a week will take me six years to copy the whole book!


About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
