Description of Fistful of Heroes: Christians at the Forefront of Change by John Pollock
We shouldn't be surprised when we have the examples in the Bible of David and Saul of Tarsus! John Pollock's deft, biographical pen sweeps over great reformers, liberators and evangelists of the 18th & 19th centuries. He shows their spiritual development, often from unpromising beginnings, and encourages us to believe that God can use us too.
