God's Word directs people's lives. Over a hundred bite-sized, thrilling, biographical sketches from a wide range of cultures, times, gifts and status show how God's Word determined their story.
Here we meet theologians, missionaries, hymn writers, athletes and others including James (the Lord's brother), Augustine of Hippo, Martin Luther, William Tyndale, Jonathan Edwards, Fanny Crosby, Mary Slessor, C. S. Lewis and Helen Roseveare.
"These delightful sketches of Christian leaders remind us that Scripture shapes lives in many varied and rich ways." - Peter Sanlon, Lecturer in Doctrine and Church History, Oak Hill College, London
"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 Milton, President and Professor of Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina
