Researched and written by award-winning historian Rod Gragg, My Brother's Keeper reveals one gripping profile after another--thirty accounts of Christians from all walks of life who were granted the grace to face the forces of evil. With courage that was forged in faith, they were called to help protect and preserve the lives of thousands of Jewish individuals and families from the horrors of the Holocaust. Eventually, each of them would be honored by the nation of Israel with the title "The Righteous Among the Nations." Each story is extraordinary, and all deserve to be remembered and retold in "such a time as this."

England in the twentieth century was in the grips of theological liberalism. It was thought that no modern person could accept the claims of the Bible. Preaching was filled with maudlin platitudes and empty moralizing.

Into this dark atmosphere stepped the man known as "the Doctor." D. Martin Lloyd-Jones was a physician by training, and he embarked on a promising career in medicine. But after having been converted, Lloyd-Jones felt an irresistible call to preach. In answering this call, he engaged in a ministry that would exert profound influence on both sides of the Atlantic. From his pulpit at Westminster Chapel in London, he set a new standard for faithfully proclaiming the Word of God while combating the influence of liberalism in his day.
