4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Most people know about the Archduke as the one who was assassinated that became the catalyst for the First World War.  Other than that little else is known about him not because there’s no information out there but I believe a large part of it is because Archduke Franz Ferdinand was not popular with the elites in the Austrian ruling family and its court and also because the horror of World War One eclipsed everything.  This book turned out to be quite interesting in its own right not just in relations to thing that led to the World War but also for the tragic love story of Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie.  Certainly the human interest is there in this book!

If you have followed our blogs for years, you know it’s that time again….I’ll be getting ready again to prepare to teach and train pastors overseas sometime in Spring 2020.  I can’t disclose the destination.  As usual I’ll be going somewhere where I won’t have stable internet access and also other restrictions.

Would you want to “keep the fort down” for this blog while I am away by writing a guest post that I can schedule and also interacting with those who comment on the blog for the day it is posted?

I’m taking requests right now and asking for submission by sometime in March.  Posts will have to be biblically sound (obviously) and can be on the topic of the Bible, theology, apologetics, Christian worldview, etc.

Drop us a comment and let us know!
