Summary

Throughout the course of history, civilization has been blessed by strong-minded men and women who have impacted our world in extraordinary ways. Their imprint upon humanity is beyond dispute. And many would contend that they were no less than the result of Divine Providence - a gift of God to the human race.

Who are these individuals? What is it about these few that make them different? Were they merely in the right place at the right time? Or were they somehow chosen? The Mark of a Giant examines the lives and contributions of seven men and women who changed the world: Abraham of Ur, Pericles, the Apostle Paul, Sir Isaac Newton, Marie Curie, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mother Teresa.

Truly an inspiring book. Very relevant to today.

Even though this is an older book, it is a good listen. It really helps one to reflect on the happenings of our current time.

amazing stories about 7 people who had an impact

My favorite was probably Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr, incredible stories!

I loved the simple but powerful overview of the lives of these amazing people.
