12 Faithful Men: Portraits of Courageous Endurance in Pastoral Ministry highlights the bravery of twelve key historical figures: Paul, John Calvin, John Bunyan, Jonathan Edwards, John Newton, Andrew Fuller, Charles Simeon, John Chavis, C.H. Spurgeon, J.C. Ryle, Janani Luwum, and Wang Ming-Dao. The book excellently shows how these men, who were also pastors, went through a lot of suffering, but also overcame suffering. The book would be a good tool for young pastors, allowing them to see the trials and turbulent times in these renowned leaders’ lives. Hansen and Robinson demonstrate that rough periods are commonplace in ministry, and the leaders of today will be able to relate. Each chapter in the book is written by a different author, giving the book a wide range of perspectives.
