5 Cities that Ruled the World book review


Thomas Nelson sent me 5 Cities that Ruled the World to review at my request and I have to say it has been a great read. Author Douglas Wilson has done an amazing job of reviewing the historical impacts of five cities: Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, London and New York.

Walking the reader through the significance of the past, Wilson draws the reader's attention to history's fingers playing in the present. As a history buff, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and still learned many interesting facts and cultural pieces of knowledge. Written from a Christian perspective, it is a book I intend to keep in our home library for years to come.
As stated, Thomas Nelson Publishers sent me this book for free and I did not receive any monetary compensation for it's review nor did its "freeness" affect my review.

Hi! I am homeschooling mom at the other end of the line---finishing up the last few years. My oldest daughter is a young married (expecting #1 in August) and I found your blog through hers. You are a wonderful mother and wife and I enjoy reading about your life.
I am intrigued about the reviewing you do of books...how does one get the privilege of doing this. I am aan avid reader and my budget can hardly keep up with my reading. So, FREE books sound great! Can you tell me about it? Thanks!
