Nicole5 Stars Out Of 5November 24, 2009NicoleThis 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!
