    Excellent read, thought provoking and very much worth your investment of time and resources. I'm doing a study with friends from work and whatever we read it provokes great conversation.Unsolicited P.S.: The shipping/delivery time, any time I have ordered books from www.christianbook.com, is amazing.

    This is a great book for anyone wanting to learn about Christians of the past who have left their marks. I had to read this book for school, but ended up really enjoying reading about the authors that I had heard so much about. The book offers resources to other books if the reader wishes to learn more. Great book, I highly reccomend it!

    I look forward each morning to the thoughts I will encounter in this book. My thinking is challenged and deepened; my daily life reflects this. Presentation is very user-friendly and leads to more resources if reader desires. This book is a treasure.
