Bitesize Biography - WILLIAM FAREL

ISBN: 9780852349540
Author: Jason Zuidema
Format: Paperback 198 x 129
Page count: 128

William Farel lived his life as one of the magisterial Reformers in
the shadow of John Calvin and for that reason has been little
known

William Farel lived his life as one of the magisterial Reformers in the shadow of John Calvin, and for that reason has been little known.  In 1536, he would meet Calvin in Geneva and, by God’s grace, be the main agent in Calvin’s call to the city. Jason Zuidema has written a thrilling account of Farel’s life and challenges the classic thinking that a worn-out Farel handed over to Calvin in Geneva.

Adolphe Monod (1802-1856) was a beloved and courageous French pastor, a major figure in the nineteenth century Awakening.

Here was a man who loved Christ and who was used of God to stir many to live wholeheartedly for the Saviour. His story should stir many today.

Author: Richard Hannula
Format; Paperback 198 x 129

Through thirty years of ministry, the voice of Hugh Latimer was the clearest and most influential in England for the great truths of the Reformation. His simple gospel message, and condemnation of the church's false teaching, was despised by the church authorities, but applauded by King Henry VIII and loved by the ordinary people. His straightforward Biblical preaching brought the gospel to many thousands of his countrymen. His stirring life was eventually ended in martyrdom.
