William's amazing journey to India would prove to be just the beginning of a missionary quest filled with hardship and heartache as well as tremendous victories. Often referred to as "the father of modern missions", William Carey displayed a single-minded determination to set his face like a flint to the task of bringing the gospel to those lost in darkness. His life of service and sacrifice is a guidepost to Christians of all generations. (1761-1834)

This is a great series that can be enjoyed by young children and adults. I used them as part of the training for a short term missions campaign. Each of the fourteen team members read a different biography in this series and then reported to the rest of the team. It was reminder that the training topics we were learning were relevant and lived out by the faithful and fruitful missionaries introduced by this series of biographies. For many of the team this was their first introduction to reading Christian biography and they loved it!
Positives of this series: 1) Great introductory overviews of the lives and ministries of the individuals. 2) Basic reading level for an increasingly illiterate culture 3) Short enough to be read quickly in a culture with an increasingly short attention span 4) Available in Kindle and audio book for the technologically inclined 5) Well written and holds your attention without being exaggerated and exploitative 6)...
As a current missionary working in South Sudan, I really enjoyed this book. I identified with many aspects of Mr. Carey's life. It was encouraging to read how his faith convicted and led him, challenged and inspired him, and carried him through many difficult journeys. I've thoroughly enjoyed all the books I've read from the Christian Heroes series. I would highly recommend them to audiences young and old! Easy to read and enjoyable.
Inspiring! This should be read by all young people regardless of religion. Such a man of service and sacrifice. Inspiring.
