This special biographical series illustrates biblical truths through the lives of contemporary believers— men and women who display a wonderful legacy of light.

From the Preface:

The Word of God is filled with biographical details, as one character after another parades across the stage of redemptive history. These patriarchs, prophets, judges, apostles, and faithful followers of the Lord fill key roles in furthering God’s eternal plan. Yet they also serve another purpose: they teach us lessons by the lives they lived.  

The New Testament writers often repeated the challenge to the early believers to imitate the faith, actions, and attitudes of godly individuals past and present. Those first readers of the New Testament learned how to follow and serve Christ, not only from the instructions of the apostolic authors but also from observing how the truths the apostles taught were lived out in the lives of other Christians. Paul told Titus and Timothy to be good examples worthy of imitation (Titus 2:7; 1 Timothy 4:12). He even held himself forth as an example to other believers, inasmuch as he imitated Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1; Philippians 3:17).

The great American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow put this challenge to rhyme in his 1838 poem “A Psalm of Life,” when he wrote: 

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.

It is quite obvious that God loves to teach lasting lessons through the lives of individuals. With that in mind, the biographical sketches presented in this book illustrate biblical truths through the lives of believers ranging from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries—men and women who provide for us wonderful legacies of light.
