Description

Short biographies of three prominent Christians who stood for the truth of God's Word.

John Piper tells the stories of three people, Athanasius, John Owen and J. Gresham Machen, who were willing to contend for Jesus Christ in the face of opposition, and to suffer for the sake of guarding the gospel. They are an example and an inspiration to Christians today.
