We discovered the Christian Heroes: Then and Now book series at a homeschool conference several years ago. Since then, these books have become precious to us. We have loved the hours we have spent learning about the faith of George Muller, Corrie Ten Boom, Billy Graham, Brother Andrew, and so many other Godly heroes. As we have read these stories our own faith and commitment has grown.

Janet and Geoff Benge - Discovering Christian Heroes 

Janet and Geoff Benge are the authors of the Christian Heroes: Then and Now and Heroes of History book seriesJanet also developed and wrote curriculum unit study guides to go with many of the books. Combined there are over eight million copies of the Heroes books in print in 25 languages.
