At a recent convention, I was privileged to meet a very fine Christian man who has written this book I highly recommend. Gordon Lawrence has compiled a biographical sketch book of many men, not just in America, but throughout the world, who were unashamed of their Christian faith. From current culture, today’s readers get the perspective that only Pastors or full time missionaries are holding to the faith in their everyday life, and that anyone else who does surely is not mainstream. Great Men Bow Down features businessmen such as John Wanamaker and Zig Ziglar, literary giants like Dante Alighieri, recent men Ronald Reagan and Payne Stewart to the great scientist Isaac Newton who said after many hours in observation of the Universe, “God governs all things and knows all that is or can be done.”
I encourage you to purchase this book especially for future generations because so little will be known of the great Christian men of our present and past unless such volumes line the shelves of our homes. References are easy because the men are listed alphabetically. Lawrence also includes personal notes which give his strong fundamental position and explain his heart for preserving this history.
