We grow up. Life speeds up. Our focus gradually gravitates to the pressing needs of the present! How refreshing it is to be reminded that the great stories of the past were written for the present! Biographies are truly a treasure preserved for us “upon whom the ends of the world are come”. Heroes of faith practicalized many wonderful truths and only so much of their experiential wealth is available to read about online. But hidden away in their books are what Shelley Hendry calls “many beautiful things”. The everlasting beauty and glory of those things must shine on! And they do, in us, as we remember, personalize and re-live their experience in our world today.
