Calvin, Luther, Zwingli, Moody and Wesly. Do any of these names ring a bell.
If not, I suggest that you get acquainted with them. Why? Because they are history’s most awe-inspiring Christians.
If you’re new to the Bible or even if you’re a veteran Christian, I highly recommend getting the book, 131 Christians Everyone Should Know (Holman Reference)You will not be disappointed.
Becoming familiar with the lives of those that have shaped Christianity (as well as history itself) helps to understand and see God’s plan for the Ages.
It also helps to understand the work of God in the life of His servants. You will gain knowledge of how Scripture came to be, how church traditions came to be and so much more.
From the editors of Christian History, these 131 biographies offer succinct and powerful portraits of remarkable believers such as St. Augustine, Johann Sebastian Bach, Constantine, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Teresa of Avila, Joan of Arc, Polycarp, and over one hundred others.
Spending time with just one of these great Christians will inspire you to deeper thought and a greater appreciation for the men and women who have given of themselves for the good news of the Gospel.
Timelines, quotes and background information reveal each figure’s place in history, how they lived, what they believed, and how their faith affected the course of history. The book also contains a topical index that will help you find illustrations for teaching and preaching.
