A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries o&hellip by Joni Eareckson Tada
In many ways Joni Eareckson's book serves as an extended illustration to the theology of Henry Frost whose book, "Miraculous Healing", she constantly recommends.

William Tyndale is my hero and David Daniell's book `William Tyndale: a biography' might have thought to have been the definitive work. Moynahan's book relies heavily on Daniell but brings a thrilling pace to the personal conflict between Thomas More and William Tyndale. Moynahan is more than sympathetic to Tyndale and clearly hostile to More but the dynamic… Read more
