Standing on the shoulders of giants

Stands to Reason recommends a book from IVP [which I just ordered]:

Hebrews 12 tells us:

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus.
I just got a book in the mail that put me in mind of this passage because it's a series of biographical vignettes of Christian thinkers who have shaped the church and history, The History of Christian Thought by Jonathan Hill. We are the benefactors of those in the faith who've contributed to our understanding of Christianity, yet we know little if anything about them. "A society [or church] with no grasp of its history is like a person without a memory."
