FAITH DOUBT AND COURAGE: FIFTEEN GREAT PEOPLE OF FAITH AND WHAT WE CAN LEARN FROM THEM
John R. Tyson
How have Christians over the centuries demonstrated faith? worked through doubt? acted with courage? How can great people of faith inspire our Christian journey? Can we really be like they were? Dr. Tyson believes we can, and he offers fifteen short biographies of significant Christians from various periods of history to prove it. We see in their lives specific examples of faithful responses to God and how their examples of faith can be put into practice in concrete, real-life situations. Dr. Tyson looks at the faith of the following great people of Christian faith: Vibia Perpetua (ca. 181 203, Athanasius of Alexandria (ca. 293 373), Augustine of Hippo (354 430), Anselm of Canterbury (1033 1109), Francis (ca. 1181 1226) and Clare (ca. 1193 1254) of Assisi, Thomas Aquinas (1225 1274), Catherine of Siena (1347 1380), Julian of Norwich (ca. 1342 1416), Martin Luther (1483 1546), John Calvin (1509 1564), John (1703 1791) and Charles (1707 1788) Wesley, Karl Barth (1886 1968), Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906 1945), Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929 1968), and Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910 1997).
