"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 ~ Chancellor and Chief Executive Officer, The James M. Baird, Jr. Chair of Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina

"Readers will be moved to faithful obedience to Christ as they read the accounts." - Dennis P Hollinger ~ President and Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Christian Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, Massachusetts

"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

"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." - Ajith Fernando ~ Teaching Director, Youth for Christ, Sri Lanka
