Are you feeling discouraged in your efforts to reflect Christ each day in our broken world? Does it feel lonely? Too difficult? Too overwhelming? The saints can help you. Especially the ones whose stories Chris Armstrong tells here, because he's chosen them for the ways they've inspired him and deepened his own faith. A professor of church history, Armstrong provides rich portraits of ten people from the past who
- translated the gospel for their own times
- broke down barriers
- ministered out of the brokenness we all share
- knew what it feels like to live on the margins
- believed in the power of stories to bring transformation through Christ
