How can we be emboldened to live faithfully when faced with discouragement and cultural pressure to conform?

For a donation of any amount this month, receive a copy of Glenn Sunshine’s newest book, 32 Christians Who Changed Their World, a book that will not only help you open your eyes to the glimpses of God all around you, but will help you point others to Him as well.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are sorry that we cannot offer shipping to countries outside of the U.S. at this time. 

To live with confident faith today, we must remember God’s faithfulness in the lives of His people in the past.

Christians are called to be agents of restoration (2 Corinthians 5), but in an age so divided and hostile to truth, this calling can seem futile. Thankfully, God has proven Himself faithful to His people in every era of history. 

In his latest book, 32 Christians Who Changed Their World, Colson Center Senior Fellow Dr. Glenn Sunshine tells stories of believers throughout history who made an incredible difference for the Kingdom of God in a variety of cultural contexts. 

Included in this “great cloud of witnesses” are scientists, queens and kings, teachers, doctors, bureaucrats, mathematicians, storytellers, and more. Learn about incredible heroes of the faith, such as … 


  • Abba Enbaqom, a 16th-century abbot who wrote defenses of the Christian faith against Islam, which strengthened the Church in Ethiopia.  
  • Pandita Ramabai, 19th-century Indian social reformer and teacher who advocated for the dignity and education of women in India and translated the Bible into her native language of Marathi.  
  • Ho Feng Shan, who, in the face of Nazi intimidation, used his political privilege in the years leading up to World War II to evacuate Jews from concentration camps. 
  • … And more! 


Learning from those who’ve gone ahead, including their stories and the fruit of their faithfulness, will not only challenge any sense of futility but will also remind us that we too can be agents of restoration in our cultural moment. 

For a gift of any amount to the Colson Center in July, we will send you a copy of 32 Christians Who Changed Their World by Dr. Glenn Sunshine, so you can be encouraged by the stories of Christians from the first century to today and be stirred up to walk with confident faith in your own sphere of influence.  

God has called us to this time and place for a purpose. May this book inspire you to walk with confident faith, “knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
