Almost 2000 years ago, Jesus promised his followers “I am with you always, to the end of the age.” In recent years, those words have become very precious and durable to Christians the world over. Jesus’ Church is a family that must endure onward. Within these pages, we find Christians who will do just that. Whether they seek to make new followers of Jesus, combat evil and injustice, defend the truth of the Bible, or endure intense persecution, these men and women exhibit a faith of deep resolve.
Luke H. Davis
Luke Herron Davis teaches ethics and church history at Westminster Christian Academy in St. Louis. He has authored books in the Cameron Ballack Mysteries and the Merivalkan Chronicles, as well as ‘Tough Issues, True Hope’. He has also penned lyrics to over seventy new hymns. An ordained priest in the Anglican Church in North America, Luke lives with his wife, Christi, and their family in St. Charles, Missouri.
Here we meet with some familiar saints, such as B. B. Warfield, C. S. Lewis, Corrie ten Boom, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and J. I. Packer, and others less well–known, all woven into a rich tapestry of God’s glory. As with Luke’s other volumes, this is a grand introduction to the modern era. I commend it warmly.
Lecturer in Church History, Highland Theological College, Dingwall, Scotland
Resolve rounds out a great series on church history as seen through the eyes of those who were there. Covering the last two centuries, Davis uses the stories of modern Christian leaders to show how the present day church continues to evangelize, train pastors, and confront social issues. Readers will learn much from the short biographies and be encouraged that the cause of Christ continues around the world.
Author of ‘God’s Timeline’ and ‘God’s Bible Timeline’
Davis guides his reader through the decades and across continents as he transcends denominational divides to craft a tapestry of Kingdom influencers who point the reader to the importance of the gospel, its reasonableness, relevance, and defense today … an excellent resource for anyone, not just young people.
