Paperback 528 pages
Down through the ages, men and women have given their lives to carry out the command of Jesus. Bob and Penny Lord have tracked the lives of 12 men who have said, Yes! to Jesus, and dedicated their lives to that Yes!, some at the cost of their lives. Their biographies parallel the times of crisis in our Church. Bob and Penny have set their sights on the man and the time in which he lived. They have started at the beginning of our infant Church, with one of the greatest adventurers our Faith has ever known, Paul the Apostle, and continued to our present day, ending with a Paul of the Electronic Age, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
They have focus on the problems in the world and the Church at these crucial times in our history, the men the Lord sent to save the world and the Church from destruction, the struggles they encountered along the way, and the ultimate triumph of Jesus through His Powerful Men in the Church.

"During this construction period of Francis' life, one of the broken-down churches he worked on, was the little Benedictine chapel at Santa Maria degli Angeli. It was called the Portiuncola. It had been abandoned, and was in ruins. Francis rebuilt this church in honor of Our Lady, and leased it from the Benedictines for one barrel of fish per year. This became the first church of the Franciscan Order...." Taken from "Saints and Other Powerful Men in the Church."
