If Faith Cook wrote a comic book, I would buy it! Reading her mini-biographies, as in Stars in God's Sky (and a raft of others), is always a soul-nourishing, faith-fortifying exercise. I love her tendency to by-pass the all-stars and focus on the 'dirt disciples' who simply slug it out in faithfulness to Jesus. We are again in her debt. My father used to tell me, 'Anything J. C. Ryle writes is good!' And I've the same opinion of Faith Cook. I hope preachers read her stuff--it'll both nourish their souls and improve their sermon illustrations!

This is a selection of inspiring and easy to read biographies. These believers 'being dead yet speak' (Hebrews 11:4), and their stories in different ways highlight the reality of God's keeping grace. Remembering ordinary people, and how God cares for them through the most trying times is a certain antidote for discouragement, and an inspiration to persevere in following Christ.
