Witnesses to the Word


Fifty Profiles of Faithful Servants
Victor A. Shepherd
Clements Publishing Format: Softcover
ISBN: 189466700X

There is no better way to escape the prejudices and blindspots of the church today than to study the lives of faithful Christians who have gone before us. In Witnesses to the Word, Victor Shepherd introduces fifty faithful servants of Jesus Christ. Some, like Dietrich Bonhoeffer—executed by Adolf Hitler—have given up their very lives for the sake of the gospel. Others such as C. S. Lewis and Soren Kierkegaard have laboured for the sake of the gospel in the academic, political and literary world. Still others such as St. Francis of Assisi have much to teach us what it means to renounce our wealth and serve the poor.

REVIEW “As you get a glimpse of these real people living out their faith, you will thank God for Victor Shepherd and the years of work and prayer that make possible this valuable resource. I gladly commend it to growing Christians everywhere.” Gary R. Walsh, President, Evangelical Fellowship of Canada
