History is filled with examples of people we tend to think of as spiritual giants. Even though they had their own sins, struggles, and weaknesses, we can look to their examples to magnify the way we can model our own lives. The lessons they left behind through their example and teachings still have an impact today. Their stories should still be told and read today.
 
In this book, John Piper reviews the lives of 21 leaders from church history, presenting a close look at their perseverance in the face of opposition, weakness, and suffering. The endurance of these faithful, though flawed saints, can inspire you to live a life of Christ-exalting courage, passion, and joy.
