50 People Every Christian Should Know:......Wersbe
April 10, 2017
Excellent Presentation of famous and not so famous writers, preachers, and leaders of the church who made an impact for Christ during the turn of the century and early 20th century. Far too much inspiration and information to assess and digest at one sitting, more like a proper reading of the book would take one chapter a day. Recommend for more mature Christians who are inspired by examples of individuals fully surrendered to the Lord's leading and can appreciate and discern the Biblical patterns expounded upon and can separate out trivial or mistaken individual marches down blind or wrong alleys.
If you ever wondered what some of the great men of our faith were like, this is the book to introduce you. Dr. Wiersbe does a great job providing an overview of the lives of these leaders of the faith. And, in usual Wiersbe fashion, provides a wealth of additional references to further your relationship with these great men. I started this book as a relaxing read but soon found myself reaching for pen and highlighter. An excellent resource for an enjoyable time and further study.
This is the second time I have purchased this book. After seeing and reading part of the book I feel this is one book that is great for all believers to have in their home. This second purchase was for a Christmas gift. The Christian heritage we have is brought out in the glimpses of the personalities of those written of in the book. It gives one a desire to get full biographies and also to it encourages us to be faithful to what the Lord calls us to do.
