屬靈偉人小傳(基督徒出版社 版本 江守道 編譯 陳福中 增訂)

以下連載引自 http://www.livingwater4u.com/tuanqi/jianzheng/jianzhengframe_right.htm

本仁·約翰小傳 [本仁·約翰的名著《天路歷程》,是除了聖經之外,世界上最暢銷的書籍;這本書卻是他十二年監牢生活的成果。]

叨雷小傳 [一九O一年,叨雷離開家鄉美國,整整一年間,他到過日本、中國、澳大利亞、新西蘭、印度等地,帶領兩萬多人決志信主,帶來了一次全球性的大復興。一九O三年一月,叨雷來到英國,掀起了更大的復興浪潮。他的信息震撼了英倫三島。在英國佈道四年,至少有七萬人受感動,接受主耶穌作他們的救主。叨雷是聞名的聖經學者,歷任慕迪聖經學校院長和洛杉磯學院院長。此外他的著作很多,許多人從他的書籍得著供應和幫助。]

辛生道夫小傳 [在德國,主的靈澆灌著庫拉維亞弟兄們(Moravians),給他們看到有關耶穌基督資訊的亮光,並激勵他們要對外傳揚福音。在摩拉維亞教會領袖辛生道夫伯爵的帶領下,他們除了在德國本土上傳福音,還在歐洲各地傳福音,甚至前往邊遠的地區向外邦人傳福音--包括美洲的印第安人(Indians)和黑人(Negroes)、南非洲的赫敦特茲人(Hottentots)和格陵蘭(Greenland)的愛斯基摩人(Eskimos)等。"辛生道夫更是以詩歌方式來讚美敬拜神的先驅者;在他一生中,因受聖靈感動,寫下了超過二千首很有屬靈分量和經歷的詩歌。辛生道夫一有機會,就把音樂和詩歌帶入聚會中,用於敬拜神、讚美神,並讓榮耀歸給至高的神 ]

愛德華滋小傳 [愛德華滋 (Jonathan Edwards, 1703-1758),是美洲殖民地和美國最偉大的神學家和哲學家, 1703年十月五日, 生於康涅提克州的溫莎 (Windsor) 他的父母都是出身于清教徒的家庭:父親是牧師;母親是北翰堡屯(Northhampton)第一教會牧師司陶達(Solomon Stoddard)的女兒。愛德華滋的名字,時常同美國的"大覺醒"連在一起;但絕不是狂熱分子。他作過紐澤西大學 (後為普林斯頓大學)的校長;但絕不是只重知識的學院派人物。他主張平衡的基督徒。愛德華滋是美國最偉大的思想家,神學家。他的著述,立論嚴謹,析理分明,本於聖經,很少引用其他作品。他著意高舉神的至高主權,人的原罪和敗壞,神的恩典和榮耀。他的後代繁衍,很多有極高的成就,傳為美談;但他有更多屬靈的後裔,影響力無可估計。其闡述加爾文主義的著作,尤為有力,不僅在美國,亦影響歐洲神學界。在他去世以後,仍然不衰。]

克堳繚G小傳 [克堙P威廉原來是一個鞋匠,家境貧寒沒有受過高深的教育,完全靠自學,卻寫出了和馬丁·路德《九十五條》齊名的歷史文獻《諮詢》;在差傳工作上,克堙P威廉被尊稱為"近代差傳工作者的先鋒";在翻譯聖經方面,他被人讚譽,他幾乎把聖經翻譯成印度所有的文字。甚至第一本中文聖經,也是在克堙P威廉的鼓勵之下,由他的助手約書亞·馬士曼(Joshua Marshman)在印度最艱巨的環境下完成的。克堙P威廉信靠神,成為一個轉變時代的屬靈偉人。]

卜維廉小傳 [一八六五年的倫敦東區,骯髒不堪,臭味沖天,集中了社會上的人類的渣滓。只見卜維廉夫婦深入到社會的底層,向絕望中的人傳揚基督的福音。他們創立了救世軍,沿路高唱軍隊進行曲,又奏軍樂,並在街道上佈道。經過了一百多年,救世軍的足跡踏遍全世界,可以稱它為軍隊,也可以稱它為機構、宗派或教會。一八八O年,救世軍遠征美國,獲得成功。到了一九五O年,這個嚴格紀律的軍隊,大約在全球擁有兩萬七千名軍官,分散在八十六個國家。救世軍行善周濟,宣講福音,拯救亡羊。本小傳集中地述說救世軍創辦人卜維廉的生平,連帶地介紹他的賢內助凱賽琳。]

約翰·衛斯理小傳 [約翰·衛斯理(John Wesley)從一七三九年起,開始露天佈道。一直到他去世為止,在五十二年之間,他的腳蹤踏遍英國的每一角落,尤其在各城鎮、礦區,和新興工業區。他總共旅行了二萬五千里。在約翰·衛斯理的一生中,他講道超過四萬次;在有些場合,會眾曾超過二萬人。他帶領的復興運動,震撼了英倫三島,使他成為英國家喻戶曉的人物。他在屬靈方面的影響力,綿延數百年,跨越了各大洲,遍及全世界。]

查理·衛斯理小傳 [在循道宗的三位創立人中,約翰·衛斯理是一位元傑出的組織人才;懷特腓是一位大有能力的佈道家;查理·衛斯理則是一位偉大的詩人,被稱為詩中之聖。他創作了七千多首詩歌;目前世界各地教堂所使用的詩歌,查理·衛斯理超過聖詩之父以撒華滋和聖詩之後芬妮·克羅斯比。此外,查理·衛斯理又是一位大佈道家,周遊英國各地,傳揚福音,帶領無數的人歸向基督。]

懷特腓小傳 [自從使徒的日子,難得有人象懷特腓一樣,堪稱為“一支熱烈燦爛的火光”。十八世紀的英國,屬靈情形實在非常低落:人們罕聞恩典的教訓,少知敬虔的能力。然而僅僅在三十餘年中,情形大大好轉,因為在牛津大學(Oxford University)有極少數受輕看的人,興起發光,照亮了這個黑暗時代,挽救了英國的命運。懷特腓多多勞苦,僕僕風塵,在教會歷史上很少有人這樣拼命工作,幾乎一呼一吸都不忘聖職。他數周所作,多於常人一年所為。三十年來,始終不懈。多年經常每週向數千群眾講道四十小時,有時達六十小時。工作後不稍休憩,在家繼續禱告、代求、和唱詩歌頌,成千成萬的人從他得聆神那白白賜人的恩典,無數罪人因此得蒙拯救。莫怪有人稱讚著說:“才德的男子很多,惟獨你超過一切。”]

施達德小傳 [「如果耶穌基督是神為我而死,那除此以外,就再也沒有更大的祭物能為我獻上」─ 施達德 :  施達德是英國著名「劍橋七傑」中最主要的一位。他是一個注重行動過於說話的人,他變賣一切所有的來跟隨主,他終其一生把基督帶到從未聽見福音的地方,他為著基督的權益而剛強開拓,他這一生的工作就是要叫所有的人都聽見主的話。「他的一生,對於安逸的基督教而言,成了一個永恆的責備。他身上已經活活的展現一種生活,那就是緊緊跟隨基督,不計代價,也不往後看的生活。]

馬丁·路德小傳 [馬丁路德(Martin Luther)生在貧寒之礦工小屋內。人生命史上的第一段往往是最要緊的,因為堶掛憟亶o人如何在神的手下被模塑成形。在路德的經歷上,這點尤其顯著。整個的改教運動都包含在內。改教各方面的工作,在世界堳筑臚妨e,均逐一在他的堶悼發生作用,因為他將要被用成為推廣這些工作的器皿。只有認識在路德心堜珧_的變化,才把握了教會改革史的鑰匙。惟有熟識那專一的,才能瞭解那廣泛的。忽略前者,必致蒙昧後者!使人不過粗知皮毛而已。因此我們必須先在路德堶掬爭黿邿B動,而後才深入那使基督教國改觀的種種史實。]
