Over one thousand quotes, scripture verses, and poetry selections are included in this sweet-sized devotional (4"x6") that will help inspire and guide you throughout the year. The Cloud of Witness is a high-quality reprint of the 1891 edition compiled by Edith Gell. It is a durable heirloom book printed in grayscale and housed in a rich coated-linen cover with a golden bookmark to hold your place. Each week a different theme is highlighted with selections from such luminaries as George MacDonald, William Wordsworth, Lord Tennyson, William Shakespeare, Ralph Waldo Emerson and others. A fresh forward has been added by Nancy Kelly of Sage Parnassus which elucidates Charlotte Mason's use of this book as a gift to her House of Education graduates. In addition, a high-quality color image of Holman Hunt's The Light of the World replaces the black and white image from the 1st edition. This thoughtful volume will comfort and guide anyone who wishes to meditate on the many truths found between the covers as well as make a perfect gift that will last a lifetime. We at Riverbend Press were very happy to work with Nancy Kelly on this project. Nancy had a vision for this wonderful little book and together we were able to make it a reality. We are pleased to add it to our growing list of Charlotte Mason books and look forward to future Charlotte Mason-related projects with Nancy involving books and other beautiful things.
