An Exciting and Inspiring Collection of Vividly Told Stories of Christians Who Really Made A Difference.
When you think of who could be considered a real hero or heroine, there are lots of people who come to mind, and probably different for everyone. World changers from the past and present. Household names and people who are little known. Perhaps even those we know personally. Brave people who lived to tell the tale and those who did not.
However long the list is, it must surely include a young girl who endured life in a Nazi concentration camp for hiding Jews under threat and survived it all to live a life free from bitterness. And a man who faced and overcame the power of a government in his attempts to smuggle Bibles to people who were denied the freedom to have what they so desperately wanted. Also, a man imprisoned in solitary confinement for years, for sharing the message he believed to be worth everything. Then there is the man with almost no resources, who spent his life providing for over 10,000 orphaned children in a time when they were considered of little value, and creating 117 schools. He even went to The White House. Lastly an athlete who achieved great success and fame, eventually being the focus of a major movie, but was prepared to give it all up, despite national pressure, and eventually did so, to live in obscurity doing what he truly loved.
All very different people with different stories, which may seem a million miles from our lives, but must certainly deserve a place in life’s hall of fame. Read and be inspired – you never know what your story may turn out to be…
