The Day One Christian Biography Collection brings together the best in Christian biography, and offers an excellent introduction to the work of God through the lens of history. The authors—whose backgrounds blend the best of their pastoral, scholarly, and biographical expertise—reveal the motivation behind the ministries of some of the central figures in the recent history of Christianity. They recount the lives of missionaries and martyrs, political and social figures, and great theologians and pastors.
As the lives of these central figures recede into history, the Day One Christian Biography Collection reintroduces us to their important stories of divine miracles and sheer hard work, soaring triumph and tragic loss, bitter reluctance and fervent courage. These books reveal the intricate ways in which God revealed himself to these dominant figures in the Church’s history, and—through their lives—point toward timeless ways in which God is moving in the present.
Each book contains timelines, maps, and illustrations, along with broad introductions to relevant historical events. The books in the Day One Christian Biography Collection are accessible and easy-to-read, and are ideal for anyone looking for a first-time introduction to the key figures of recent Christian history. What’s more, the books in this collection are greatly enhanced by their compatibility with the rest of the titles in your Libronix Digital Library, giving you instant access to related books, articles, and a wealth of information.
I continue to be thankful for the publications of Day One. They are biblical; they have sound theology; and they are relative to the issues at hand. The material is condensed and manageable while, at the same time, being complete—challenging balance to find. We are happy in our ministry to make use of these excellent publications.
