These Christian stalwarts were once young boys playing games, learning from mistakes and growing up in quite a different world. But was it that different? Irene Howat has researched the lives of these men of God and draws out lessons we can all relate to, especially youngsters today.
Samuel Rutherford showed people that love works better than fear; John Owen made friends with powerful rulers and humble craftsmen; Jonathan Edwards helped the Iroquois Indians and then was asked to teach at Princeton; George Whitfield preached Salvation to thousands and saved the lives of children; Robert Murray McCheyne lost his brother but found Jesus; DwightL. Moodysold shoes in a shop and then taught children in a caravan; Billy Sunday played professional baseball and then preached the gospel; Charles Spurgeon became a Christian in a snowstorm and then told the world about Jesus; Aiden W. Tozer rescued orphan lambs and then he was saved by Jesus; Martin Lloyd Jones became a doctor but found a better medicine for souls
