Radiant records the triumph of the gospel as Christian women faced kings and governors, soldiers and wild beasts, Japanese guards and Muslim raiders, fire, exile, the chopping block, Nazis, cannibals, riots and more. "Look to heaven and forsake the world" has been their cry for two thousand years, but being "spiritually minded" in this way hasn't made these women ethereal - it's made them invincible.
From South America to Europe, from China to Africa to the Wild West, in prisons and in throne rooms, the Christian heroines of this book have left a stunning legacy. These short and moving biographies introduce fifty often unfamiliar champions of the faith.
"From the time of Christ's ministry on earth until the present day, faithful women have left us a legacy of courage, sacrifice, and service in the midst of trials. In this new collection of stories, Richard Hannula has given us a rich resource of encouragement and inspiration." - Nancy Wilson, Author of True Companion and Praise Her in the Gates
