Eryl Davies not only shines a light on an undervalued hero of the faith; he lets the reader taste Thomas Charles’s own love for Christ and the Scriptures. May the Lord use this to raise up more like him.

… charming, searching, and inspiring … Dr. Davies’ compelling narrative not only aids the recovery of Thomas Charles, it strengthens hope that we might see a like movement of God’s grace and power.
