In Hebrews 11, cameo appearances fill the stage: eight individuals, one couple, one group, and six people the author didn’t have time to write about. Each had a story that was made memorable by their faith: “All these people were still living by faith when they died” (v. 13).

You can turn there, stay as long as you want, and let their faith rub off on you. And there are another thousand or so bonus pages.
