Dr. Gaius Davies introduces us to Martin Luther, John Bunyan, William Cowper, Lord Shaftesbury, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Christina Rossetti, Amy Carmichael, J.B. Phillips, C.S. Lewis, Martyn Lloyd Jones and Frances Ridley Havergal. For each one, after a brief biographical introduction, he shows us how they all had their particular trial, and how Grace operated in each one of them. He is not afraid to show how anxiety, guilt, depression and doubt can be present in the finest of Christian lives, but also goes on to show how divine grace can transform human weakness.

Review:

"[Dr Gaius Davies] writes knowledgeably about some fascinating individuals - gifted, troubled Christians, whom he brings brilliantly to life." (J. I. Packer ~ Well known author & Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada)

"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." (Richard Bewes ~ OBE, formerly of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, England)

"This book is a celebration of God's Grace which transforms even those who suffer painfulhandicaps 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 Corinthians 12:9)' (John Stott, former Rector, All Souls, Langham Place, London.)

'Highly readable, and very encouraging.' (Reformation Today)

'Gauis Davis has done us a great service in sketching the real lives of a number of great Christians.' (Evangelicals Now)

'A book which may be read with immense benefit by the general reader and anyone who iscast down in soul and spirit or needs to be strengthened and sustained by the lifechanging, transforming power of God's grace.' (Banner of Truth Magazine)
