Dr. Gaius Davies introduces us to Martin Luther, John Bunyan, William Cowper, Lord Shaftesbury, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Christina Rossetti, Amy Carmichael, J. B. Phillips, C. S. Lewis, Martyn Lloyd Jones and Frances Ridley Havergal. After a brief biographical introduction to each person, he shows us how he or she all had their particular trial, and how grace operated in each of them.
Dr. Gaius Davies, FRCPsych, M Phil, DPM, was a Consultant Psychiatrist at King's College Hospital, London. He is a well-respected author.
This book is a celebration of God's Grace which transforms even those who suffer painful handicaps and disabilities. He offers no glib remedies. He tells the truth, the some of God's heroes and heroines have been eccentric and neurotic, and have suffered repeated breakdowns. He is well read and his book is well written. Its message in the end is Christ's word to Paul: "My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness"(2 Cor. 12:9)
(1921-2011), Rector Emeritus, All Souls Church, Langham Place, London
"By teaching us not to be afraid of the scars and hang-ups that ran alongside the burning faith of twelve great Christians, Gaius Davies has taught us to love them even more."
OBE, formerly of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, England
