Faith, Doubt, and Courage in 15 Great People of Faith
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. 296-373), Augustine of Hippo (ca. 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. 1342-1423), 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).
