Eric Metaxas has done us a great favor in giving a very fascinating and encouraging account of seven courageous men in short story form. He notes that each of them made hard choices and sacrifices to achieve a greater good. We can admire them and learn from them. In seven chapters he tells us about George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell (Chariots of Fire), Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, Pope John Paul II, and Charles W. Colson. All were Christians. The experiences of each of these men are remarkable. The chapter on George Washington, alone, is worth the price of the book.
