This book contains nine short, inspiring biographies of lesser-known Christians who made a difference. Perhaps best known is Patricia St John (the final chapter) to whom Mrs Cook pays a personal and moving tribute to someone who showed such kindness.
"I am tempted to say that no one can dig up saints like Faith Cook!... As she depicts (what is often) the sadness of their circumstances and the tenacity of their faith she encourages us to keep placing one foot in front of another for Jesus' sake."?
- Dale Ralph Davis, Teaching Pastor of Woodland Presbyterian Church, Hattiesburg, Mississippi
"... Many of the names will be unfamiliar, but their stories are full of interest and inspiration, each in its own way bearing witness to the faithfulness and goodness of the God whose love and mercy know no bounds. Not just education, but real encouragement, will be found in these pages."?
- William J. U. Philip, Minister, St George's-Tron Church, Glasgow
