In his Spiritual Unfolding of Bishop H. C. G. Moule, John Baird wrote, ‘No course of reading is more establishing than that of Christian biography — the battle story of those who in the conflict of earth have been great in the life of God.’ Swift and Beautiful tells the amazing stories of a dozen men and women who at great cost gave their lives to take the gospel of God’s grace to those who had not heard it. Some of these faithful missionaries are well-known, others almost forgotten, but all are ‘great in the life of God.’

‘How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”’ (Isaiah 52:7, ESV).

David B. Calhoun is a graduate of Columbia Bible College and Covenant Theological Seminary, and he earned two masters of theology degrees, including one from Covenant Seminary (Old Testament) and one from Princeton Theological Seminary (New Testament). He earned a doctor of philosophy degree from Princeton and serves as Emeritus Professor of Church History at Covenant Theological Seminary. He also served as a Presbyterian minister for more than 60 years.
