This book, along with its companion title "Men of Destiny", provides an excellent introduction to the lives of several Christian men from all sorts of different backgrounds who have lived over the years. Written in an easy to read style these short biographies can be enjoyed by all ages. The aim of the book is to encourage readers to think seriously about the way in which conversion through Jesus Christ radically changed these men's lives for good and how such a experience can also be the readers. I thoroughly recommend this affordable challenging read.
