The Bible tells us in Ephesians 6:17 and Hebrews 4:12 that God's Word is ‘the Sword of the Spirit’ and that 'it is sharper than any two-edged sword'.
This means that when God's word is proclaimed those who teach and preach the Word of God they are wielding a mighty weapon.
This book looks at the lives of some of the men and women of God, like Anthony of Padua, John Wycliffe, Festo Kivengere, Priscilla, Monica, and Mary Lyon. Some of these saints, are well known New Testament characters, others were pivotal in bringing the Bible to the masses, and still others became famous for faithfully preaching the Gospel.
The second title in 'Defenders of the Faith' series - Wielding the Sword gives a great introduction and overview of some of the most important men and women in church history.
