Faith Cook is among the most loved of modern British Christian authors. Her mainly biographical works have inspired and delighted thousands. But how did she become interested in her subjects and what has Faith herself read and most appreciated over the years?

In this book, she weaves those books into a brief autobiographical account of her life after she returned to the UK from...

Anne Boleyn, twenty years old, stepped onto the shore at Dover in the winter of 1521 after several years abroad. She had been sent to France to assimilate French culture, and had used the time well. She was all set to make a big impression at the Tudor court—and did, capturing the heart of Henry VIII. But this woman, who was in the grave by the age of thirty-six and on the throne of England for...
At eighteen, Anne Bradstreet left England for the New World in search of religious liberty. Despite many hardships, she became famous as America's first published poet. A devoted wife and mother, she was a woman of deep spiritual convictions, seeing the Christian life as a pilgrimage with a better world to come. Faith Cook shows how this woman lived “not to set forth myself, but the glory of...

Archibald G.Brown (1844-1922), instead of following his father to wealth in commerce and banking, built a church to hold 3,000 in the East End of London while still in his twenties.

John Charles Ryle (1816-1900), first Bishop of Liverpool, was one of the most influential evangelical clergymen of the nineteenth century. A popular platform speaker and prolific tract writer, his books are still widely read across the globe.

Edited by Andrew Atherstone, this critical edition of Ryle’s manuscript autobiography, dictated in 1873, is a rich and unparalleled account...
One wonders why someone would bother writing a biography (or reading one) about a strange, peculiar, odd person. Nevertheless, Ryle declared that no account of Christianity in England in the 18th century would be complete without featuring remarkable Toplady.

In 1872, Professor Charles Hodge celebrated fifty years of teaching at Princeton Seminary in New Jersey. For a half century, Dr Hodge had trained almost three thousand ministers, missionaries and professors who had carried the gospel message throughout the United States and many parts of the globe.

Hodge shaped not only Presbyterianism and evangelical Christianity in his generation...
Kivengere was a man of his age. Neither he nor the churches around him were perfect, but they had experienced God in an unusual way.
