Nuggets of Gold Dec 10, 2009
This is a collection of short biographies of real life heroes. Many the reader will know already, people like Martin Luther King Jr. and St. Francis of Assisi. Others may be less familiar, like Chuck Matthei or Brian Willson. Most were a part of the 20th century scene, and speak to struggles we have shared, or at least recognize. All are inspirational signs of hope in an age hungry for good news. You may be tempted, but don't read through the book quickly -- savor the life of each "saint."
