Product Description

Dr. Gaius Davies introduces us to Martin Luther, John Bunyan, William Cowper, Lord Shaftesbury, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Christina Rossetti, Amy Carmichael, J.B. Phillips, C.S. Lewis, Martyn Lloyd Jones and Frances Ridley Havergal.

After a brief biographical introduction to each person, he shows us how he or she all had their particular trial, and how grace operated in each of them. He is not afraid to show how anxiety, guilt, depression and doubt can be present in the finest of Christian lives, but also goes on to show how divine grace can transform human weakness.

Editorial Reviews

Davies writes well and in our suffering we can feel that we are not so far removed from the experiences of these 'giants' of the faith.'
This book is a celebration of God's Grace which transforms even those who suffer painful handicaps and disabilities. He offers no glib remedies. He tells the truth, the some of God's heroes and heroines have been eccentric and neurotic, and have suffered repeated breakdowns. He is well read and his book is well written. Its message in the end is Christ's word to Paul: "My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness"(2 Cor. 12:9)
"By teaching us not to be afraid of the scars and hang-ups that ran alongside the burning faith of twelve great Christians, Gaius Davies has taught us to love them even more."
"[Dr Gaius Davies] writes knowledgeably about some fascinating individuals - gifted, troubled Christians, whom he brings brilliantly to life."
Davies writes well and in our suffering we can feel that we are not so far removed from the experiences of these 'giants' of the faith.'
Gauis Davies has done us a great service in sketching the real lives of a number of great Christians.
"Highly readable, and very encouraging."
