Description of Lawrence Kimbrough, author of Words to Die for:
What was the verse that brought Augustine to his knees? The verse that helped Bonhoeffer make sense of his suffering? The verse that motivated Martin Luther King to look death in the eye? Throughout the years, God's Word has changed the course of history by changing the lives of men and women. And you can meet 30 of them through the inspiring short stories in this book--from Livingstone to Luther, Bach to Brainerd, Paul to Patrick, Tyndale to ten Boom. People from centuries far and near who found strength in the Scriptures and a passion for pursuing God's will. These characters are incredibly compelling. Their stories touch us, move us. Yet this book is not so much about people and their faith as it is about the Bible and its promises--the power of God that not only worked in the past but can still change the course of our day. Your day. Every day. Whether you like church history or not, you'll find a lot to like here. And find a lot of reasons to plant your trust in God by seeing what He can do when we take Him at His Word.
