Contains 65 mini biographies of Christian leaders that cover the 2,000 years of Church history from Peter to Billy Graham. Each is written by authors including J.I. Packer and D.A. Carson. This is not the type of book you have to read from cover to cover. You can pick and choose depending on what your interested in since each entry is for the most part self contained.
