Evangelical Heroes Vol. 1 & 2


What does it mean to be “evangelical?” In Evangelical Heroes, Joel Beeke and Douglas Bond present thirty biographical sketches of faithful evangelical leaders from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. From George Whitfield to Charles Spurgeon to R.C.

“Biographies of noted Christian men and women are a great encouragement and inspiration. I have found that the accounts of their lives are highly devotional, as they point us to God and His word. That is why I am excited for this first of two volumes, Evangelical Heroes. Joel Beeke and Douglas Bond are well-studied in the lives of these influential figures whom God used mightily in centuries past. I believe these life stories will spur you on in your Christian life.” 

—Steven J. Lawson, President of OnePassion Ministries, Professor at The Master’s Seminary, Teaching Fellow for Ligonier Ministries, Lead Preacher at Trinity Bible Church of Dallas  

“Their assumption of heroism is rare in an age of cynicism. Joel Beeke and Doug Bond don’t dwell on weaknesses compulsively but see true heroism coming out of a close walk with the Lord.” 

-Russ Pulliam, Indianapolis Star 

“It is a joy, then, to introduce this two-volume set of evangelical heroes by Joel Beeke and Douglas Bond. Like the biblical heroes, these are flawed men and women. But like the men and women in Scripture, their lives are on record for us to see what is possible in the walk of faith and, like them, (to paraphrase the words of one of my heroes, William Carey) to ‘expect great things from God and to attempt great things for Him.’” 

—Michael A. G. Haykin, from the foreword

Puritan Heroes


Who were the Puritans, and why are they important?

What can we learn from them today?

The Puritan movement began in England during the sixteenth century and continued all the way into the early eighteenth century. Although the Church of England was formed as a result of the Reformation, the Puritans believed it needed much more reform. Puritan Heroes is a beautifully illustrated book that gives the reader an idea of what the Puritan movement was about and offers a glimpse into the lives of more than twenty of its most well-known leaders (among them William Perkins, Richard Sibbes, Thomas Goodwin, Anne Bradstreet, and Jonathan Edwards).

The book concludes with ten important lessons readers can learn from the Puritans and study questions to help them retain these fascinating stories and assist them in applying the lessons to their lives. It also features a bibliography to encourage further study in greater depth, as well as a glossary and timeline to help readers understand historical context. Written for children and young people, it will prove a suitable introduction to the Puritans for adults as well.

  23. Conclusion


“A masterful summary of the pick of the Puritans, introducing a new generation to a gospel-centered, life-embracing, family-oriented people, and—yes—people who enjoyed life instead of the dour, sour, and twisted folk that a hundred years of prejudicial narratives have made them out to be. I wish it every success in dispelling the myths that plague these godly men and women.” — Derek W. H. Thomas, senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

“How refreshing it is to step into the past. We need perspective and we need heroes. This book provides both. Richly illustrated, these brief but substantive biographies point us to faithful and fruitful servants. They remind us of our calling to be disciples. They encourage us to press on through trials and suffering. They remind us to be joyful and grateful for all that God has done. Above all, they remind us to keep our eyes fixed on the one Hero, our faithful Lord and Savior.” — Stephen J. Nichols, president, Reformation Bible College, and chief academic officer, Ligonier Ministries

Reformation Heroes


The Reformation did not happen instantaneously; it was something God patiently arranged over a number of years.

As you read this book, you will learn how the Lord used some people to plant the seeds of church reform long before October 31, 1517, when Martin Luther published his ninety-five theses. Luther's story is well-known; we trust you will find it interesting and instructive to read about him and about forty others (John Knox, Peter Martyr Vermigli, Zacharias Ursinus, Willem Teellinck, etc.) who contributed to the Reformation - some well known and others not so - most of whom are Reformation heroes.

To provide a more full picture of the many sided Reformation, chapters are also included on the Anabaptist and Counter Reformation movements. The book concludes with a brief summary of the influence of the Reformation in different areas of life.
