Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I commend this wonderful book to the Church with a prayer: read it slowly, carefully, and prayerfully before bed and let the faithfulness of God quiet your heart, calm your soul, and seal your sleep with a lamp of faithfulness that will cause you to dream dreams and have visions of how God's Word will change your life. ~ Michael A. Milton (President and Senior Fellow at D. James Kennedy Institute for Christianity and Culture)

I'm halfway through Peter Barnes' A Lamp unto my Feet and want to commend him for writing it, and you for publishing it. An outstanding and very helpful work. ~ David Robb (Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand)

These delightful sketches of Christian leaders remind us that Scripture shapes lives in many varied and rich ways. ~ Peter Sanlon (Vicar, St Mark's Church, Tunbridge Wells, Kent)

You may read it through completely, or simply dip into it reading a chapter or two when you want to be inspired by a "history treat," or you may read a specific chapter on someone in whom you are interested in knowing more about. ~ Ajith Fernando(Teaching Director, Youth for Christ, Sri Lanka )
