Editorial Reviews

Michael Milton
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.
Dennis P Hollinger
"Readers will be moved to faithful obedience to Christ as they read the accounts."
Peter Sanlon
These delightful sketches of Christian leaders remind us that Scripture shapes lives in many varied and rich ways.
Ajith Fernando
"This delightful book meets this need. 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."
