    Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A Spoke in the Wheel

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of the heroes of World War II. From a plot to assassinate Hitler, to eventually being imprisoned and martyred, this a gritty real-life story of perseverance.

    His belief in Christ, and the sacrifice that Christ asked of him, ultimately led to his death but he went to his execution peaceful and confident that he was going to meet the God who had saved him.

    Today he is remembered not only for his work with the German resistance but also for his writings, including his letters from prison and the classic books Life Together and The Cost of Discipleship.

    D.L. Moody: One Devoted Man

    Three words that sum up D.L. Moody's life are Passion, Vision, and Devotion–for God!

    He could easily share the gospel with 20,000 people on a hillside and then do the same thing the next day with just a few people in a church hall.

    D.L. Moody was fiery and fun! Watch out for how he used a pony to get children to church. One life devoted to God really can change the world.

    Elisabeth Elliot: Do the Next Thing

    Do the next thing... Elisabeth Elliot held these words close to her heart... but "the next thing" can be hard to do when you are a young wife grieving over the violent death of a beloved, dynamic, husband. It can be a struggle to do anything next when tragedy hits. Yet in God's strength, Elisabeth did quite a few "next things." After her husband and four other missionaries were martyred, Elisabeth found the courage to care for her child, write, and spread the gospel to the very people who had speared her husband.

    Elisabeth Elliot's life as a missionary in the jungles of Ecuador, and later as a bold spokeswoman for biblical femininity, speaks to our hearts about what the Lord will do when we surrender our all to Him, in a day when people like to live for themselves.

    William Tyndale: The Smuggler's Flame

    William Tyndale lived a life of adventure and danger, dodging the king's men, fleeing from his enemies and meeting with smugglers in the dead of night.

    What brought a well-educated young English man to such a state? Was he an outlaw? Was he a thief? No–he was a Bible smuggler, and a brave one at that.

    Tyndale wanted other English speakers to be able to read God's Word in their own language, but there were many who tried to put a stop to that.

    However, Tyndale's work was God's work and it would not be stopped–even after Tyndale's death. One day there was a translation of the Bible in the English language and it lit a fire in people's hearts that would not be put out.

    Read and learn about how God wants us to be brave and courageous and to stand up for the truth!
