God often chooses unsuspecting heroes and writes unlikely endings to his stories. Many of the characters in the Bible are even unnamed, yet their adventures reveal the kind of lasting impact that God intends each of us to have.
Why do the vast majority of us live out unremarkable days in spite of our God-given hunger for significance? Unsung is one thing, but why settle for uninteresting? Or even worse, uninvolved? If you have the eyes of faith to see and the courage to act, you can join God's roster of unforgettable heroes.
Each of the eight chapters: • Focuses on one unnamed hero and shows how God works through everyday people • Gives insight into how God intends to fill our lives with significance and adventure • Combines stories of Bible heroes, incredible accounts of modern-day unnamed heroes, and solid biblical insight • Concludes with "Releasing Your Heroic Potential" questions to help individuals or small groups identify next steps
