I had heard some of the names and knew something about some of them but nothing in this much detail. This is very worthwhile read for anyone interested in revivals and spiritually gifted men and women. 2) Inspiring Christian History - By Sarah Flo This book is great for anyone who wants to live an inspiring life for Christ. There are ten different Christian "Generals" who made an impact on Christendom and their inspiring lives have made an impact on everyone I have given this book to. It is emboldening in living wholeheartedly as a christian soldier and encourages people to take their faith seriously. I have purchased maybe a dozen copies of this book to give to friends to help inspire them to live wholeheartedly for God in the great vision He has for their lives. The notes by the author are very insightful and he retains a tone of honor and respect even when describing and commenting on some failures the Generals experienced. I would recommend this book to anyone who aspires to be a pastor, missionary, bible teacher, church leader, or anyone who has felt the call to do something for God with this one life they have been given.
