Augustine discovered the love of God and changed the way we think; John Knox focused on God's word and told his country the truth; Martin Luther rediscovered God's truth and gave it to ordinary people; John Calvin realized that salvation was a gift from God and not a reward for what he did; William Tyndale longed to print the Bible in a language that everyone would understand; Hugh Latimer urged people to read the Bible for themselves and made enemies as a result; Jan Hus taught that God is in charge of the church and the world; Ulrich Zwingli challenged people to obey God's word in every area of their lives; Thomas Chalmers called the church to show Christ's compassions to the poor; and Lord Shaftesbury pushed the church into making Christ's love a living reality for everyone. These true-to-life stories of "ordinary" boys and men tell how their lives made an impact because of their faithfulness to God. Each story is about ten pages, making this ideal for family read-alouds; short quiz questions are included at the end of the book. Read this book to find out what God wants you to do!
