Book Description:

God's ways are not our ways.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the lives of some of his servants: Newton changed from slave-trader to abolitionist: R.A. Torrey, the great Bible teacher, was on the verge of suicide: the polished Earl of Shaftesbury changed the fortunes of the less well off.

We shouldn't be surprised when we have the examples in the Bible of David and Saul of Tarsus! John Pollock's deft, biographical pen sweeps over great reformers, liberators and evangelists of the 18th & 19th centuries. He shows their spiritual development, often from unpromising beginnings, and encourages us to believe that God can use us too.

The 28 biographies are arranged in 5 sections:
Setting the Prisoners Free - John Newton, William Wilberforce, James Ramsey, Sir Charles Middleton
Make the Foulest Clean - Sir George Williams, The 7th Earl of Shaftsbury, Robert Raikes, Elizabeth Fry
Soldiers for Christ - Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, Sir Henry Havelock, Sir Herbert Edwardes
Assist Me to Proclaim - D.L. Moody, Brownlow North, R.A. Torrey, Bramwell Booth, Lord Radstock
Into All the World - Hudson Taylor, Adoniram Judson, Mildred Cable, Stanley Smith, Rosalie Harvey, James Chalmers, Ernest Presswood, John & Betty Stam, Sir Wilfred Grenfell, Mary Slessor and Rowland Bingham
