The stories, testimonies and profiles of our godly forebears are a powerful and direct link to the past, allowing us to see major historical events and eras through the eyes of those who lived through and participated in them. Such a unique perspective serves not only to enlarge our understanding of history, it also provides insight into the character of these men and women we study.

There are valuable lessons to be learned from the lives of these trailblazing figures.

Christians called to public office have a responsibility to be true salt and light in their position; social policy is reflective of social norms, and if we will not uphold a biblical standard for a just society, we will inevitably uphold an anti-biblical standard.
With a balanced, accessible style that will appeal to both the amateur and the art student, Calvin Seerveld explains that art is a fundamental cultural activity, and art history is a key way to orient the next generation to understand our human task.
