This series captures the hearts of men and women who loved God above all else. Each book details the life of a missionary or other worker for God from their childhood all the way through their deaths. Their stories are told in a straightforward yet interesting way, providing readers with inspirational, true stories of men and women who served God. The books are digest-sized and around 150 pages in length (my two sample copies are 141 and 175 pages), divided into fairly short chapters for easy reading. - Melissa
