|From the waning of the sixteenth century to the dawning of the twentieth, Christ-followers faced unique challenges and astonishing opportunities. Confronted with the expanding impact of secularism and the narrowing influence of Judeo-Christianity, Christian leaders responded in a variety of ways. The Book of Saints: The Early Modern Era is a devotional gateway to the thoughts and insights of those saints who remained true to their Lord while harnessing the tools of modernity for his service.|
As we walk "the way of holiness," these outstanding "saints" from every branch of the church in the early modern period can light up our path. They can help us, too, to be "examples of the believers."
