The dramatic account of one couple’s courage and commitment in the face of communism.
More than seventy-five years after Hudson Taylor’s pioneer missionary work in China, two young Americans, John Stam* and Elizabeth (Scott) Stam, set out for China as missionaries. Bound for work with Taylor’s China Inland Mission, they were married after arriving in the country.
Taylor had been threatened by the infamous Boxer Rebellion, but the young couple faced a new threat at the hands of Communist soldiers. Bravely witnessing for Christ in spite of the violence and fear, they were accused of sedition and cruelly murdered at the ages of 27 and 28. Their courage in the face of death set an unforgettable standard for Christian martyrdom in the twentieth century.
Inspiring and challenging reading about true heroes of the faith.
*John Stam is the brother of C. R. Stam, founder of the Berean Bible Society.

David was a man after God’s own heart . . .
What does it mean to be someone “after God’s own heart?” David, Old Testament Shepherd, king, and psalmist, offers an answer in the shape of his own life.
In many ways he was a most extraordinary man–intelligent, handsome, abundantly gifted as a poet, musician, warrior, and administrator. Yet in other ways he was a most ordinary man–often gripped by destructive passion, rocked by family chaos and personal tragedy, and motivated by political expediency. How did David become the national hero of God’s chosen people? Why is he the one character in the Bible described as “a man after God’s own heart?” Chuck Swindoll explores the many facets of David. from his teenage years and dysfunctional family life to his overwhelming passion for God.
David’s life offers hope to all of us. It shows that God can do extraordinary things through ordinary men and women. And David offers an insightful perspective on what it means to be truly spiritual, to become like David, men and women after God’s own heart.
David is the first of a multi-volume series exploring great lives from the Bible. Chuck Swindoll wants to show us that these men and women became great when they placed themselves at the Lord’s disposal, allowing Him to develop within them the marks of true character: humility, purity, authenticity, and integrity. To live a life God considers “great” is within the reach of everyone who submits to Him.
In Great Lives: Joseph, Charles Swindoll reveals to us a man buffeted with the same kinds of problems we face today, whose tenacious faith in God ultimately won him great honor and achievement.
No family today is more dysfunctional than Joseph’s was. No one faces greater temptation than that which Potiphar’s wife offered Joseph. No faith is challenged more severely than was Joseph’s on death row. Yet Joseph stood firm, exemplifying what is possible when ordinary people maintain their connections with God. Like an epic novel filled with intrigue, tension, and torrential emotions, Joseph’s triumphant story touches us all. Great Lives: Joseph presents a fresh look at one of the most intriguing characters in the Old Testament and focuses on the virtue of forgiveness in the face of deceit and betrayal.
Where are great leaders like Elijah today? Uncompromisingly strong, yet self-controlled. Disciplined, yet forgiving. Audaciously courageous, yet kind. Heroic in the heat of battle, yet humble in the aftermath.
We see a few such men and women, but the list is tragically short. Rarely does someone model these invaluable traits more obviously than God’s mighty prophet Elijah, whose calling was anything but calm and free from conflict. Nevertheless, as you are about to discover in this book. Elijah exemplified true heroism and genuine humility amid the relentless pressure of battle.
Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility is the fifth volume in the best-selling Great Lives from God’s Word series by Charles Swindoll. The series also includes such powerful biographies as Joseph, David, Esther, and Moses.
Exploring the depths of Elijah’s fascinating life as a prophet of God, Swindoll does not gloss over his human weaknesses; rather, he presents an honest picture of this ordinary man who God transformed into His personal spokesman to confront idolatry and evil in the ancient world. You will find that it’s a life worth emulating.
In a world that has lost its way, due in part to the lack of balanced, godly leadership, we are more than ever in need of a few Elijah-like men and women who are not afraid to live courageously among their peers as they walk humbly with their God.
“May this book establish deep within you a desire to stand strong for what is right as you bow low before Him who is worthy of your trust and obedience.”-Charles Swindoll
