    A great book to read which let you be inspired by the giants of the faith. The author read an enormous amount of materials to compose this book. These Christian persons seemed to be unbreakable in their zeal for Christ and knew how to spend their time well. The beautiful thing from autobiographies is that every person is unique and have something to learn for us.
