Designed as a reading companion book to the Great Christian Classics: Five Remarkable Narratives of the Faith, this is a singular compilation of the most remarkable life narratives ever recorded in the history of the Christian church. For the first time, these outstanding autobiographical records are combined to form one powerful, penetrating compendium. Some stories are still read 1,000 years after they were written. But these stories will stand for eternity. They have already stood the test of time. Christian people everywhere have read these stories in every generation since they were first penned. But even more importantly, the men who tell their stories are great men, and they will stand in Godâ€™s hall of faith for eternity. They are men who worked hard to raise up a kingdom out of the dust of heathendom, paganism, statism, humanism, and ecclesiastical compromise and decay. All of them worked in the face of unbelievable dangers, including persecution, imprisonment, enslavement, and the devastation of war. Truly these are the patriarchs and the pioneers in the faith. They built the church from the bottom-up in places as far-flung as Africa, Ireland, Scotland, England, and the South Pacific.
