What does it mean to hear God’s voice and follow it? And can we be certain of the calling God has for us as His children? From Biblical times to the present, men and women have asked these questions and forged out answers that enabled them to become what we now describe as “the saints of the Church.” In this volume, the authors introduce us to a few of these saints. Some of them sacrificed riches and fame to fulfill their calling; others left home and country, while still others were led to share their revelations from God through sermons and books which still stir and provoke us to holy living.
Don’t read these biographies, however, if you are stuck within denominational boundaries. Don’t read them if you want a hard and fast blueprint for your lives. Don’t read them if you have decided exactly what you will or will not attempt for God. But read them if you feel within you the unquenchable desire to bless the world through following the call of the One Who made you, loved you, and redeemed you. His Voice still speaks to listening ears!
