Summer reading from Sunday School

In adult Sunday School for the past 6 weeks we have been blessed to learn about some really interesting people. I thought it might be helpful and perhaps motivating to post the resources the teachers used so that we can learn even more about the men that most interested us.  Biographies make great summer reading!  Post comments as you read and share your own discoveries and insights.
