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.
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
The apostle Paul. The converted terrorist, inspired author, amazing teacher, and patient mentor. This colossal figure strode boldly onto the stage of the first-century world and left an indelible signature of greatness never to be forgotten. His life? Magnificent! And his ministry? Impressive. While assigned sainthood by some today, by his own description he was “the chief of all sinners.” No other person in the Bible, aside from Christ Himself, had a more profound influence on his world and ours than Paul.
He was a man of real grit, with a firmness of mind and spirit and unyielding courage in the face of personal hardship and danger. Tough, tenacious, and fiercely relentless, Paul pursued his divine mission with unflinching resolve. And God used him mightily to turn the world upside down for Christ in his generation.
But Paul’s message and his style were also marked by gentle grace. This man, who tormented and killed the saints of God, understood and explained grace better than any of his contemporaries. Why? Because he never got over his own gratitude as a recipient of it. God’s super-abounding grace transformed this once-violent aggressor into a humble-but-powerful spokesman for Christ. A man with that much grit desperately needed that much grace.
Perhaps that’s why Paul’s life is such a source of hope for us. If the chief of sinners can be forgiven and become God’s chosen vessel, can He not forgive and use us as well? He can, if we too become people of both grace and grit.
Paul is the sixth of a multi-volume series exploring Great Lives from God’s Word and searching them to find the qualities that made them great. Join us for an exciting, in-depth look at this amazing life, as only Chuck Swindoll can describe it: Paul: A Man of Grace and Grit.
A Man of Colossal Faith in the Face of Overwhelming Tragedy
Job, a study in pathetic tragedy . . . a hapless victim of unfair treatment. His disastrous circumstances overwhelmed him. His boil-covered body tormented him. His so-called friends belittled him. His distraught wife discouraged him. Even God seemed to desert him, letting Satan have his devilish way. And Job sat patiently by, enduring it all. Not a portrait of a hero. Or is it?
Could a man with ordinary internal fortitude stay faithful as Job did? Could a wimp endure the excruciating pain, suffering, and loss that this man did? No hero? Think again.
After a year of focused research into the life of Job, Charles Swindoll says, “Job appears boldly in the ancient book of the Bible that bears his name, and yet most of us have not taken the time to examine his life in depth. But a careful study of Job’s life will convince us that this is another of God’s amazing men with heroic character qualities worth emulating.”
Travel with Swindoll into the world of Job: A Man of Heroic Endurance. “Even if it was written in Scripture long ago, you can be sure it’s written for us.” So pay close attention to Job’s life. Who knows what God will do next in your life?
Would you rather be a person of significance or a person of prominence? Think carefully! The answer to that question will shape your entire future.
Pastor, teacher, and beloved author Charles Swindoll says, “Somehow life has taught us poorly. We’re trained to think that the most significant people are star athletes, actors, and musicians—the ones we applaud, those whose autographs we seek, those who have worldly renown.
“They aren’t. Not really. Most often, the people really worth noting are those who turn a ‘nobody’ into a ‘somebody’ but never receive credit.” What is forgotten far too often is this: Success in God’s kingdom and in the church depends upon faithful people the public rarely knows.
The Old Testament contains numerous fascinating stories of forgotten lives—unsung heroes whose actions, sacrifices, or battles failed to ascribe them worldly renown. These great lives, however, reveal significant people whom God honors in the pages of His Word and, therefore, deserve our serious attention and emulation. Adino took out eight hundred armed, skilled fighting men with his sword. Eleazar attacked the Philistines by himself for so long that his comrades had to pry his sword out of his grip. Shammah, while his companions ran like scared cats from their enemies, stood his ground—alone—and was victorious. And yet, did you recall any of their names? They’re not on the rolls of the rich and famous. Still, they are significant.
In this eighth volume of the bestselling Great Lives from God’s Word series, Chuck will examine little-remembered Bible characters and events. He will help you discover biblical principles and practical applications for living so that you can be who you are in God’s estimation . . . a person of true significance.
Jesus Christ. He is, without question, the most influential person in history. Millions of people claim the truths of the religion that bears His name.
But who exactly is Jesus? A popular religious teacher? An ancient martyr? Many today are unsure. Even scholars debate whether the Jesus of history is the Christ of faith. Now, more than ever, we need a clear understanding of the person and work of the man millions call Savior.
In this ninth and final biographical study in the best-selling Great Lives from God’s Word series, beloved pastor and Bible teacher Charles Swindoll introduces you to the carpenter from Nazareth as you have never seen Him before.

His astonishing power. His controversial teaching. His shocking death. And His world-changing resurrection.
Refreshingly honest and deep, this in-depth profile reveals Jesus with great clarity and offers practical applications for your own life.
