Item description for Hidden Heroes by Larry Thompson...
Overview Have you ever seen a real hero? Not the kind on television or in the movies, but the quiet kind of individual who changes lives without people even noticing. These hidden heroes dwell on the streets of compassion and on the bridges of hope. They live in the hearts of those who have love for the unlovely and a right word when everyone else is silent. Cities survive, communities continue, and families stay together because of these hidden heroes who rush in when everyone else runs out. Larry Thompson believes we all have a hero hidden inside of us.What can we learn from the hidden heroes of the Bible? What can we find out about the hero hidden inside of our own hearts? "We encounter heroes hidden in every area of life-business, community, sports. What makes someone a hero? What causes an individual to strive beyond the everyday expectations and excel? In this book, my friend Larry Thompson uncovers the secrets of Hidden Heroes from ages ago and then applies a very contemporary lesson for success in this new century." -H.WAYNE HUIZENGA Entrepreneur and President, Huizenga Holdings, Inc. "Hidden Heroes makes me remember people that have been very important to me in my 33-year career as a head coach in the National Football League. These are people you can count on who want nothing back in return. They make as much of a contribution as those who are recognized as stars. It's important that we find time to praise their legacy." -DON F. SHULA Winningest Coach in the NFL (Head Coach,Miami Dolphins, 1970-1995) Author Profile
Publishers Description When the final accounting is done one day, we will learn that God's "hidden heroes" on earth far outnumbered the famous men and women whose names are more easily recognizable. Of course, the fact that some are briefly mentioned in the Bible reminds us that God affirmed their unique contribution to His kingdom. Though not entirely unsung, they moved on a different and smaller stage than that of those Biblical characters like King David and the Apostle Paul.
