The Mark of a Giant

Book Details
Author: Ted Stewart
Release Date: May 2013
Publisher: Shadow Mountain
Genre: Inspiration

If you had to name just 7 people to represent the giants among men, who would you choose?

I am SO IMPRESSED with Ted Stewart's choices!

And his explanations for WHY he chose these 7 are so enlightening!

I have never thought about not only the world-wide, but also, time-wide differences these 7 amazing people made in order for our lives to be better today.

This book gives you greater understanding and appreciate for:

Abraham or Ur
Pericles the Greek
Paul-Apostle to the Gentiles
The Incomparable Mr. Newton
Madame Marie Curie
Dr. Marin Luther King, Jr.
Mother Teresa

These 7 giants "individually and collectively altered the way that we are governed, the way that we think, the way that we act, the nature of our aspirations, the priorities that we pursue, what we understand, and the comforts that we enjoy."

They have made our lives, and us, better!


Truly love those within your home, school, work, community.
Reach out to someone who is lonely, depressed, or in need of help.
Take on the curse of pornography and the degrading of American culture.
Fight those forces and influences that are destroying America's family.
Fight against racism and bigotry.
Study the sciences...cures for diseases still need to be found.
Give generously to a charity.
