Inspiring true stories of men and women who answered God's call
A wealthy Irish girl rescuing children in India? An English maid preaching the gospel in China? An American pilot serving missionaries in Ecuador?
Christian Heroes: Then & Now chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory.
William Carey (1761-1834): William Carey watched from the dock as the magnificent sailing ship headed for the English Channel without him. Tears filled his eyes, and deep disappointment filled his heart. What would he tell the missionary society? So much work awaited him half a world away. He must get to India - and soon!
William's amazing jouney to India would prove to be just the beginning of a missionary quest filled with hardship and heartache as well as tremendous victories.
Often referred to as "the father of modern missions," William Carey displayed a single-minded determination to set his face like a flint to the task of bringing the gospel of those lost in darkness. His life of service and sacrifice is a guidepost for Christians of all generations.
