Trailblazers - Christian Biography and Testimony

April 10, 2017  |  Ben House, R.A. Sheats, James K. A. Smith, and Joe Boot

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. It is instructive for us to consider particularly the impact of some of those saints of old who were concerned with building a godly social order. There are valuable lessons to be learned from the lives of these trailblazing figures.
