The eight-volume Welwyn Biography Series offers a glimpse into the fascinating lives of important figures in recent church history. From missionaries like David Brainerd to key Methodist leaders like Charles Wesley, the stories of these individuals will encourage your work and inspire your ministry. This collection contains valuable insights into the social and spiritual conditions of their times, and also reveals the depth of faith commitment to which God can bring his servants.
Although centuries have passed, separating our lives from theirs, their remarkable stories are instrumental in the encouragement of God’s people, and their influence continues to be felt wherever the church pursues its ministry to the world. Learn from the trials and triumphs of those who have gone before. From controversial figures to refugees, these important characters in the church’s history endured persecution, sparked revivals, and humbly discerned God’s calling at pivotal junctures in church history. Their sermons are still read, their songs are still sung, and their stories are still told. Meet them face-to-face in the Welwyn Biography Series.
Each book in the Welwyn Biography Series contains numerous illustrations and photos, along with maps, charts, and other materials to offer a comprehensive introduction to the historical context.
