BEST LINKS TO HEROES OF HISTORY HAS NUMEROUS BROKEN LINKS AND THE WEBPAGE IS UNDER EXTENSIVE REVISION:


BROTHER ANDREW
A few sites focus on Open Doors:

Open Doors International� � �
Open Doors USA
Wheaton College (Open Doors)

Still active, Brother Andrew is often reported on the Internet. Here is a small sample:

Christianity Today (Nov. 1998)
International Day of Prayer Message


GLADYS AYLWARD
Ironically, websites for this popularized hero (Hit Movie: 'Inn of the Sixth Happiness') are rare:

Biographical Sketch (Soc. Archbishop Justus)
Biographical Sketch (Glimpses)
Biographical Sketch (Hillsdale College)


BLACK ELK
Many good sites; Black Elk and Lakota religion are hot topics.

Brief, factual biography
Guide to the Great Sioux Nation
(Excellent for visiting Lakota historic sites.)
Lakota Dakota Information Site
(Superb information with dozens of links.)


JOHN BUNYAN
Bunyan sites abound. Virtually all Bunyan's splendid works are now online. Even detailed biographical information is available, including Bunyan's own matchless 'Grace Abounding'.

Acacia John Bunyan Online Library
John Bunyan's Bedford
(A lot here on JB environs; dig for it.)
John Bunyan Archives� �
John Bunyan's Last Sermon
'Life of John Bunyan' by Venables (1888)

JOHN CALVIN
Good Calvin sites are numerous, some in French.

Text of Calvin�s 'Institutes of Christian Religion'
Texts of Calvin�s Commentaries on the Bible
Calvin�s Garden
Brief, accurate biography
Short biography with many links


WILLIAM CAREY
Many sites have brief biographies but a few are expansive.

William Carey
Missionary

AMY CARMICHAEL
For such an accomplished missionary and gifted writer (many of her books are still in print) the sites fall far short. However, the few excerpts from her books are powerful:

Excerpt from Amy's 'God's Missionary'
Excerpt from Amy's 'Things As They Are'
Amy's Tract 'Cry of the Blood'

And her heart-felt poems are often cited:

Amy's 'Hast Thou No Scar?'
Amy's 'Calvary'
Amy's 'Peace in the Pain'
Amy's 'If'
Did you sample these?
How can you resist reading more by Amy Carmichel?

GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER
Several good sites now about this inspired genius. Be cautious because many inaccurate sites also exist.

Legacy of GWC (Iowa State)
GWC Comprehensive Site (LSU Univ.)
GWC National Monument (Missouri)
GWC National Historic site (Tuskegee)
GWC's Peanut Poducts
GWC's 'favorite' poem


CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS
Good sites abound. The first two are gold mines of information:

Columbus Link page (Discoverers Web)
Columbus Site (Millersville Univ.)
Columbus Timeline


BILLY GRAHAM
The following two sites are 'official' Billy Graham sites. They lead to a wealth of information.

Billy Graham Center
Billy Graham Evangelical Association

The following are official organs of BGEA:

Decision Today radio online
Decision Magazine online

Billy Graham is a lightning rod. Many sites on the Internet strike out at Graham. Most of the hostility is theological bickering. Part of the hostility stems from the secular tenor of his evangelical empire.


T.D. JAKES
Sites for the still very active T.D. Jakes are increasing.

TDJ Ministries
TDJ (World News Net)
TDJ Music Bio (Urbanpraise.com)
Charisma Magazine
(Dig for several Jakes articles)

Amy Carmichael Missionary

T. D. Jakes Evangelist

CONTINUE ON TO C. S. LEWIS!

Be warned: some internet sites (none of those on these link pages) and some encyclopedic software, including Encarta, are often riddled with errors.
