—Lars and Elisabeth Gren (Elliot)
"Noël Piper tells the stories of five women whose lives declare something we have almost forgotten-what it means to be a Christian. May the influence of this book cause that awareness to burn brightly again in our generation!"
—Ray and Jani Ortlund, Renewal Ministries
"I highly recommend this book as one of the great sagas of missionaries and Christian biography."
—David M. Howard Jr., Professor of Old Testament, Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota
