Ten Boys Who Made a Difference
Would you like to make a big difference in the world with your life? These ten boys aimed to do that, too. John Knox courageously challenged his nation with the Word of God; Augustine discovered God’s love and equipped us to think better; Luther took the truth to ordinary people.
Calvin showed that salvation was a gift of God and not based on what we do; Tyndale got the Bible printed in English so everyone would understand; Latimer urged people to read the Bible for themselves and made a lot of enemies by doing so; Hus taught that God is in charge of the church and the world; Chalmers called the church to show Jesus’ compassion to the poor. Zwingli challenged people to obey God’s word in every area of their lives; Shaftesbury pushed the church into making Christ’s love a living reality for everyone
Another of the books in the Ten Boys series, with fascinating short biographical sketches of 10 more boys who grew up to become men of significance in the Christian church and the world. Study questions to think through are also included in all of these volumes too.
