Beginning in the early days of the church we read of men of God who gave their lives as martyrs for the sake of Christ and the gospel. Many others suffered persecution and endured hardship in their desire to bring God's message of salvation to the world. The 21 Masters of the Faith in this book include early church fathers, reformers, missionaries, pastors, and scholars. God used heroes such as these to play a part in making His precious Word available to you and me. In this book you will read about men who were scorned for their beliefs and proclaimed heretics for their teaching. Many of them were found guilty for "crimes" such as teaching the inerrancy of the Word of God and translating the Bible into English.
