Saints and Scoundrels

Saints and ScoundrelsI’ve begun reading through portions of Robin Phillips’ new work Saints and Scoundrels. The book is a selection of biographies of the great “dragon -slayers and kingdom-builders” of history. Phillips’ preface serves almost as an introduction to postmillenial thought, or a strong Kuyperianism of sorts. The author believes firmly that God “does not work alone but uses the faithfulness of His people throughout the ages to accomplish His purposes” (13).

His conclusion captures these ideas succinctly:

…though villains may rise and fall, the people of God will always be there, pocketing their remains to show the next generation” (15).
