Blog Tour - Heroes of Faith


Book summary from CedarFort.comHeroes aren’t born. They’re created.

Every culture, every country, and every person has a story to tell about heroes—people who rose above difficulties and impossible odds to emerge triumphant. Heroes of Faith: True Stories of Courage and Strength is a collection of 24 remarkable stories of stalwart men and women who stood firm and valiant in the gospel despite dangerous mobs, flying bullets, physical handicaps, extreme hardships, and dictatorial regimes.

Through this book you will discover that the simple—yet glorifying—courage that creates heroes is something you already have in your life. As you read, you will realize the potential of your own testimony to help you become a hero.

My Review: This book is really awesome! I love the stories that Marlene Bateman Sullivan shares of people who had faith in the Lord. Some of them had their faith rewarded with their lives being spared, and some of them had their faith rewarded by being able to return to live with Heavenly Father. There were a few of stories in this book of people that I had heard of, but many I hadn't heard of and I loved learning about their lives, unique circumstances and their amazing faith. This book will help you build your faith in the Lord, your courage that you will be able to overcome your own unique circumstances, and hopefully your spiritual strength as well.
