What do Abraham Lincoln, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Louis Pasteur, Frederick Douglass, Florence Nightingale, and John D. Rockefeller Sr. all have in common? They all changed the world--and they were all Christians. Now the little-known stories of faith behind twelve influential people of history are available in one inspiring volume.
"They Were Christians" reveals the faith-filled motivations behind some of the most outstanding political, scientific, and humanitarian contributions of history. From the founding of the Red Cross to the family crisis that drove America's favorite president to his knees and cracked his religious skepticism, from the supernatural call that led a beautiful English socialite to save thousands of soldiers to the chance encounter on a train that led to the writing of "Ben-Hur," the fascinating stories of these faithful history-makers will inspire, encourage, and entertain readers of history and biography.
