Who are the figures who influence and inspire Christians? What was or what is their motivation? What can we learn about Christianity from these people?

These biographies reflect the fact that inspirational Christians can come from many different backgrounds (politics, social reform, sport, church) and ages (from the 1st century to the 21st century).
