Love
Review by debbie
I have absolutely loved going through this book as a group subject with my kids alongside the Foundations in Faith text! We've learned so much, and been challenged in good ways.
short missionary snippets
Review by Lindsey
This has been a fun book for our family to work through for our missionary focused time. Its nice to get a snippet into various missionaries lives and the way their lives were a love and service of Christ.
Wonderful Book
Review by Jess
My kids loved this book. One is in high school & the other is in middle school. This book is about several different Christians & their extraordinary lives.
Great overview
Review by Shannon
A quick read but also piques the interest for potentially learning more about each missionary.
Snapshot of missionaries
Review by Laura
This is a collection of short biographies of pioneering ministers and missionaries who have spread the gospel throughout the world. It includes a snapshot into the lives of William Carey, Amy Carmichael, Jim Elliot, Hudson Taylor, and many others. It is a great introduction to missionary work.
Beautiful Book
Review by Yulia
Great for God is an easy and enjoyable book to read. It is also very encouraging! One of the "Heroes" of Faith (Bill Bright) actually opened a church I went to in Moscow during my teenage years. It had a huge impact on the way I walk with God today. It was neat to read about him and his humble life for God. His ministry played a huge role in Russia alone.

It was edifying to read about other heroes and be reminded that the only difference between me and them is a decision they made to follow God's calling no matter what. Great book to read and build the faith that we do not need to be anyone extraordinary, just simply dedicate ourselves to God and His will for our lives!

Highly recommend!

Missionary stories all in one place
Review by D
I bought this book to read along with Elementary cultures and geography. We have Christian missionary biographies we will read as well, but it's nice to have a variety of life stories all in one place. I'm happy with this purchase.
Inspiring
Review by Kelli
Very inspiring.
Encouraing!
Review by Kristina
I had originally bought this to read to my younger kids, but found it to be too old for them, but I have enjoyed reading it for myself. It is super encouraging to read about other people who gave it all for Jesus and to see the fruit of their labor.
