Publisher's Summary

We all need inspiration to lead lives that honor God. When our faith is weak or the pressures of the world seem overwhelming, remembering the great men and women of the past can inspire us to renewed strength and purpose. Our spiritual struggles are not new, and the stories of those who have gone before can help lead the way to our own victories.

Combining the stories of 50 of these faithful men and women, beloved author Warren W. Wiersbe offers you insight and encouragement for life's uncertain journey.

Hard to absorb

Good short bios on a lot of people, but it's hard to remember who was who. So an overview reading wasn't too valuable.

Encouraging

I find it encouraging to hear about the lives and habits of those who have gone before me. I want to learn from their wisdom.

I Wanted To Like This Book

If you like to hear endless lists of dates followed by recommendations of other books about the person in question, you'll love this book. But I found it so boring. In an effort to find some reason to keep listening to this book I tried skipping over people I had never heard of and who had been dead for 200 years. I figured in a group of 50 people, someone must have an interesting story told in an interesting way. It didn't help. Even when the subject was someone I had heard of, the story telling was uninspired. I couldn't keep my mind from wandering. I have now given up.

Interesting historical sketches

Somewhat ecumenical in perspective, but great overview of some well-known and lesser-known preachers and notable Christians of Great Britain and the U.S.

Hard to listen to

I found the content excellent. However I found the narrator extremely difficult to listen to. Normally I can get used to a narrator, but never did on this one.

It is good

Even though I disagree with few of the choices I admit that the common desire to pray and study of Gods word was found in all the men and women of God. Should have included Smith Wigglesworth and his book "everlasting faith"

An inspiring read

Challenging. Inspiring. Centrality of God's Word uppermost. Avoidance of modernism and ritualism strongly advised.

Wonderful clarity of all subjects

I was encouraged to deepen my knowledge of the wonderful servants of the Lord and appreciate their obedience to Gods directing
