I thoroughly enjoyed having this as a part of my daily devotional time. Whilst there are several entries that surprised me, it is never easy to make a selection like this. I did like how they "grouped" the people, which allowed you to compare in a sense "similar" people. One could argue that many of the choices have controversial issues in their background, but I found the Authors did a good job of emphasising the positive aspects without overstating them - nor did they hide the controversy. It is good, as Christians, to learn a bit about those who have gone before us - even if we don't agree with them :) This is also a good way to develop an interest in Church History. If there are individuals that intrigue you, then go find out more about them!
