Seeing the Invisible by Faith Cook

When John Bunyan asked Elizabeth to marry him he was inviting her to share
not only his life but also his suffering. A heavy burden would rest upon
Elizabeth's young shoulders. First there was the care of John's four
motherless children. Mary Bunyan had died the previous year leaving behind
four young children of whom the eldest was blind. But a yet darker shadow
hung over John Bunyan. The death of Cromwell in 1658 spelt an end to the
period of toleration enjoyed by those men and women who felt unable to
conform to the strictures imposed on their worship by a Church of England.
The threat of persecution was real. Already the small group of believers
had been turned out of its place of worship; some members had faced
crippling fines and all John's activities were carefully scrutinized.
Elizabeth's acceptance of John Bunyan's proposal speaks highly of the
charter and faith of this young woman.

Seeing the Invisible tells the story of Elizabeth Bunyan and nine other
ordinary Christians who exercised extraordinary faith in their God. None of
these individuals is a famous name in Christian history, but their faith in
Christ and devotion to his church encourage and inspire all of us to
exercise faith in the same glorious and powerful God who enabled them to
`endure as seeing him who is invisible'.
The other Christians in this book are: William Darney, Harriet Newell, Ezekiel Rogers, Jane, Robert Jermain Thomas, Lavinia Bartlett, Leonard Dober, Martha Nelson, John Blackader
