Book #43: The Mark of a Giant

Oh man, I wish I had stayed up to date with my post writing when I finished a book!  It’s been a struggle to remember my impressions and feelings about each book when I sit down to write about it.  Sometimes all I can remember is the general feeling I have after I finish, especially if the book wasn’t super awesome.

That’s not much of an intro for The Mark of a Giant by Ted Stewart though, because it was super awesome.  The subtitle is Seven People Who Changed the World and Stewart makes a pretty compelling argument why each of those people were so important to the direction of the world.  The seven people he highlights are Abraham of Ur, Pericles, the Apostle Paul, Sir Isaac Newton, Marie Curie, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mother Theresa.  After giving a synopsis of each person’s life and their contributions, he emphasizes a certain quality each person possessed or chose to pursue and how that changed the world.  I finished each chapter in awe of what each of those people accomplished and overcame.

Not just informative, I was inspired to live a purposeful life and to make my own mark.  I think I’ll find a few more used copies to give as gifts.

Goodreads rating: 5 stars
