The series of sketches gathered here will enlighten American Christians about their heritage and uplift them by the godly examples of previous generations. The great men and women of American church history are represented here: Anne Bradstreet, Jonathan Edwards, Robert E. Lee, Noah Webster and others. Also found here are the great themes of church history: the persecution of believers, the role of women and numerous other topics. The authors write on a level accessible to the layman, but they neither trivialize their subjects not indulge in slipshod research. 179 indexed page, softcover.
