If you feel discouraged in your efforts to reflect Christ each day in our broken world, the saints can help. Especially the ones whose stories Chris Armstrong tells here, because he's chosen them for the ways they've inspired him and deepened his own faith. A professor of church history, Armstrong provides rich portraits of ten people from the past who struggled and failed and fought and lived faithfully in their day.
