As a young man, Robinson Crusoe dishonors his parents by running away to sea. He is enslaved in Africa, but manages to escape to Brazil. After years of sinful living, a storm destroys the slave ship on which he is sailing. He is the only survivor. Washed up on a tropical island, he lives there all by himself for almost thirty years.
Providentially, he is able to collect many useful supplies from the wreck of the ship. Taking dominion of the island, he makes a home in the wilderness. He grows his own food, raises his own livestock, and makes his own clothes and tools. But while he learns to provide for his material needs, he is still a slave to sin. Then in the midst of a terrible sickness, he finds forgiveness, redemption, and deliverance in the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Now I looked back upon my past life with such horror, and my sins appeared so dreadful, that my soul sought nothing of God but deliverance from the load of guilt that bore down all my comfort. As for my solitary life, it was nothing. I did not so much as pray to be delivered from it or think of it; it was all of no consideration in comparison to this. And I add this part here, to hint to whoever shall read it, that whenever they come to a true sense of things, they will find deliverance from sin a much greater blessing than deliverance from affliction.”
A Company of Heroes: Portraits from the Gospel's Global Advance
Download a sample chapter of A Company of Heroes
Across the globe, the gospel is advancing through the work of Christians willing to risk everything in the hardest places.
This book, written by a missions journalist as he traveled throughout twenty different countries, is filled with stories of Christians past and present whose examples of endurance, courage, sacrifice, and humility connect readers with God’s unstoppable work across the world. These heroes are simply ordinary people who have experienced the transformative power of a Savior who is alive and moving—and their stories will inspire readers to take faith-filled risks for the gospel.
"I’m always amazed at God’s choices in the book of Hebrews to illustrate enduring faith. The company of heroes in chapter 11 is an uneven and unlikely lot that ranges from Abraham the patriarch to Rahab the prostitute. That’s because the chapter is not a gallery for displaying human greatness but rather one that magnifies God’s grace. It’s as if everyone in Hebrews 11 is pointing down the line to the next chapter to the real hero of the story, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith (Heb. 12:2). The heroes you will meet in this book are also pointing in that same direction. They are pointing to their risen King, who has all authority in heaven and on earth..."
I have so enjoyed reading Tim Keesee’s books. He is truly a ‘frontlines’ brother in Christ who tells it like it is on the battlefield / mission field.

Tim Keesee’s journals bring to light stories of mercy, endurance, and audacity. The heroes in this book are the hands and feet of Jesus—hands scarred and stained by service and feet that go to hard places with the gospel message that shatters darkness and sets captives free.
