They contended for Jesus Christ, our All, and they remain examples for us today. Fourth volume of The Swans Are Not Silent series.
Each of these men stood for the truth of Gods Word in the face of oppositionall out of a deep love for Christ and a desire for people to know God in his fullness. Popularity was not a concern, and they took no joy in controversy for arguments sake. However, these men were willing to suffer for the sake of guarding the sanctity of the gospel. Many threats, years of exile, deaths of loved ones, opposition from friends and authorities, sickness and painnone of these setbacks could keep these three from maintaining their efforts for the furthering of Christs Kingdom or quench their zeal for Christ himself.
