There is much to be learned from the lives of people who have shown courage in adversity. Many lived hundreds of years ago, some before the birth of Christ. However many of the issues they faced, conflict, jealousy, bullying and ridicule, are still with us today. This book not only details the life of each individual but also poses questions related to the text. These questions give us the opportunity to discuss the issues and help us to make choices about some of the challenges life presents in modern times. At the end of each text there is a list of variations of each name.
