Dare To Stand Alone
“Sir, when the regulations of my country clash with the laws of my God, I must obey my God,” Ivan declared.
The general studied Ivan’s face seriously. “Does that include the regulations of your army?”
Religion was suppressed. Christians were forced to practice their faith secretly. Yet one teenage boy found the courage to stand up and speak boldly about his God. Not just to his friends or in a private church meeting-but on a military base. In front of nearly 3,000 enlisted men . . . and one colonel.
Foolish? Maybe. Risky? Definitely. But Ivan Gumenyuk had determined to follow God’s calling, and right then God was calling him to be a missionary in the Soviet army. Like Daniel of old, Ivan faced trials that tested his faith to the limits. And, like Daniel, Ivan accomplished incredible things for God.

John Chrysostom : The Preacher In The Emperor’s Court$11.99Add to cart
There was something about John Chrysostom and the words he spoke that lit up his world.
He was an important leader of the early church, known so much for his preaching and public speaking that he was given the nickname Golden Mouth. He spoke his mind and followed his convictions. He refused to host the lavish social gatherings that his predecessors had laid on. This meant that John Chrysostom really annoyed the wealthy citizens of Constantinople. He spoke out against how many influential Christians cared little for the poor.
“It is madness to fill your cupboards with clothing while other human beings stand naked and trembling with the cold so that they can hardly hold themselves upright.”
It didn’t matter if you were rich or poor John spoke the truth – emphatically. Even the empress fell under his criticism which eventually led to his exile and death.
