32 Christians Who Changed Their World

The Christian faith is a call to adventure. Be inspired by these thirty-two saints and give thanks for their faithful stories. Now go and do likewise where God has put you.

For two thousand years, average Christians have been transforming culture, and this collection of stories by Dr. Glenn Sunshine tells some of those stories. Men like Robert Grosseteste and Roger Bacon laid the foundations for science. Political figures like Abba Enbaqom and Sorghaghtani Beki (daughter-in-law of Genghis Khan) promoted Christianity in societies hostile to it. Christians like Roque González and Solomon Plaatje opposed racial oppression, and heroes like Andre Trocme and Ho Fengshan helped Jews escape the Holocaust.

These men and women all have stories that show how broad and transformative the Christian faith really has been on the world. Learn these stories and be like them.

Heralds of the Reformation

Why do we have Bibles in our own language everywhere? Why is the Gospel preached from the depths of Africa to the remotest parts of the Himalayas? It is because heroes of the faith gave their lives to bring the Word of God to the world.

The Reformation was an era with many examples of remarkable faithfulness, courage, and learning. However, few Christians today are familiar with their spiritual ancestors, the men who are responsible not only for much of our current understanding of the Bible and the Christian gospel, but also for the massive explosion of the Gospel all over the world today. If we want to continue to bear witness to the truth as faithfully as our fathers in the faith, we need to know their stories. Hannula's book includes thirty short, but profound stories of Reformation-era courage. They can easily be read aloud to children or used by homeschoolers as part of their curriculum. Additionally, this book includes an overview of key events in the Reformation, a detailed Timeline from 1516 to 1598, seven short summaries of Reformation Basics, and comprehension questions and answers on all thirty biographies.

Radiant

Your family will be fascinated and fed by these fifty true stories of great Christian women throughout history.

From South America to Europe, from China to Africa to the Wild West, in prisons and in throne rooms, many great Christians have left a stunning legacy for their successors. These short and moving biographies for young people introduce fifty often unfamiliar champions of the faith: women like Ida Kahn, who opened the first hospital in a Chinese city of 300,000 people; Lady Anne Hamilton, who rode with the Covenanter cavalry at the decisive Battle of Berwick; and Anngrace Taban, who was forced to type secret battle plans for the Sudan People's Liberation Army. In a culture where women's role in society is often at question, these examples of faithfulness can remind us that courage and godliness are possible anywhere, even if you are surrounded by Muslim raiders, Japanese guards, Nazis, or cannibals.

Guide for Sarah Plain and Tall

This was great. My third grader claims he doesn’t like reading but has just asked me to get the other books in the series. Win win- building skills and shaping loves!

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage

Am excellent book. One that all Leaders in Churches should read.

More incompetent dads

Like the books. Did not like that the very first story includes an incompetent dad with mom to the rescue

Great material

The concepts are scaffolded. The material is succinct and clear. Very good resource.

Very timely resource for our generation

As a Pastor who also leads a classical Christian school, this book is an excellent resource for thinking well about handling common challenges for leaders. Super practical and will get right to the heart of the matter. No clutter or nonsense, brief and to the point. If you lead in any capacity, you need this book!!

Excellent

This resource is helpful in our homeschool reading routine. It helps navigate discussion and helps my daughter to think about story.

Wonderful Guidance for Christians at all Maturity Levels

This book/devotional is outstanding. I appreciate his use and organization of Scripture formatted with minimal commentary. An excellent balance of Scripture (first) and man's commentary (second). Every Christian, at every maturity level, will find this a helpful book in their faithful walk with Christ. Praise the Lord for this work!

Excellent

Time has flown by, and my firstborn is 4. We have tried lots of things to ignite a passion for reading, and have thrown up our hands… until now. This was well worth the money. My son is now confidently conquering the first set of book, and I can’t wait to see how this continues to blossom.

Thanks to the creators of this set and to Canon Press for connecting us. I will forever be grateful !

Cheers,

Samuel and the Flynn Family.

Great little book

I’ve enjoyed reading this book. The service and shipping is excellent as always

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Revealing and Convicting

"Buy truth, and sell it not." That is what comes to mind with this book. The truth contained inside this short work is potent, clear, and eminently practical. Hold fast to the realities within and you will find your world strengthened and your spine stiffened.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

God knew I needed this book

This book came out at the same time a situation exploded in my life. It helped me see not only how others had tried to emotionally sabotage me, but also convicted me on how I had allowed myself to compromise in the events leading up to the controversy. Joe Rigney gave me a concise treatment on the biblical view of power dynamics and relationships, and inspired me to practice joyful, sober-minded faithfulness moving forward. Thank you!!

Leadership and emotional sabotage

This book is amazing. It has so much insight on how to lead me family, church, and school in a godly way. I bought 7 copies and I probably need
to buy more because I keep giving them away! Everyone needs a copy!

My daughter loves to pull these books out and start reading them or attempting to read them all by herself. This set of books has made her want to read independently and I also love hearing her laugh at the story lines.

It came as expected and was very well wrapped up and protected.

Not as many questions as usual

This is a good reading guide, but it's only 3 pages, and lasted for 3 days of reading. All the others I've gotten are for chapter books, which are 20+ pages of questions and last for 20+ days of readings.

Simple and Helpful

This book is Biblical, Helpful, Convicting, and Encouraging. A fantastic resource for those who want to fulfill their God-given role in family, business, and community.

Best book I’ve ever read

Can’t put into words how incredible this book is. The encouragement it is to see how God can use a Christian ruler to radically change the direction of an apathetic nation heading towards apostasy. The strategy King Alfred used to redirect England is the same strategy that we must employ. Repent, fight off the pagans, restore right worship, implement Christian education, overhaul the legal system to line up with the general equity of Israel’s civil code.

This book is a must read

The wisdom the world has been lacking

There are many ideas and schemes people have developed regarding leadership. Almost all lack the global biblical grounding this book has. Each page has impactful, solid, and virtuous teaching to help people be the leaders God wants them to be.

Little Book With A Big Punch

"Girly men" have been abandoning their God-given responsibilities over the years. This short book packs a big punch and a call to action in Godly leadership in the home, Church, and in the world. Men need to be men again!

A rare, super useful book: great clarity and thankfully concise. It’s priceless.
