Top Highlights

“The name Ananias, meaning ‘Jehovah has been gracious,’ was common among the Jews and in its Hebrew form, Hananiah, is frequently found in the Old Testament.” (Page 117)

“Mark’s biography offers hope for those who have failed. There is hope for the coward, the deserter, if only he will turn back to Christ. The possibility of recovery, of renewed and enlarged usefulness, is open to all. Mark challenges us to learn the secret of success by taking advantage of our blunders and failures in turning them into stepping-stones in the struggle for respect and usefulness. One who has failed need not remain a failure.” (Page 78)

“They furnish the most beautiful example known to us in the apostolic age of the power for good that could be exerted by a husband and wife working in unison for the advancement of the Gospel.’” (Page 23)

“three of the great men of the apostolic church lean upon his arm for assistance and friendship” (Page 67)
