William Tyndale - Follows William Tyndale's adventures as he works in secret, moving from town to town as a fugitive to avoid capture.
Perpetua - It is the year AD 203 and a young mother is charged with converting to Christianity and is sent to prison. But her freedom can be secured easily if she offers incense to the Roman gods. What will she do?
Jim Elliot - Jim Elliot and his fellow missionaries try to break down the hostile barriers with the remote Auca tribe.
Amy Carmichael - Follow missionary Amy Carmichael to India as she tries to rescue the "temple girls" from the powerful customs and superstitions that keep them hostage.
Gladys Aylward - With war raging about her and soldiers closing in, Gladys Aylward sets out on a 100-mile trek over the mountains to a safe haven. But it's not her own safety that concerns this little woman with big faith. It's the safety and well being of the 100 orphaned children in her care.
John Bunyan - John Bunyan spends his days in prison, separated from his wife and children. Living in the cold, stone cell is the price he pays for going against the established state religion. If he would agree to stop preaching, John could walk out a free man! Why does he choose to stay in jail?
Richard Wurmbrand - In war-torn Romania, Pastor Richard Wurmbrand chooses to speak up for Christ, thereby placing his own life and the lives of his family in great danger. When Richard’s choice lands him in a communist prison, his faith and witness are tested to the limits.
Eric Liddell - National hero Eric Liddell is Scotland's pride and joy and is expected to bring home Olympic gold in the 100-meter race in the 1924 Olympics. But when Eric makes the stunning announcement that he won't race on Sunday because of his religious convictions, he is soon labeled a disgrace and a traitor. See how Eric Liddell's famous stand prepares him for even greater challenges as a missionary to China during World War II.
William Booth - Introduce children to the action-packed story behind "The Salvation Army" and its founder, William Booth.
Samuel Morris - Young Prince Kaboo knows his fate is sealed. Since his father can no longer meet his captors' ransom demands, Kaboo is to be tortured until death. But a blinding light appears and the ropes that bind him fall away, and a heavenly voice urges him, "Run, Kaboo, Run!"
Augustine - Young Augustine thinks his mother’s religion is foolishness and soon finds himself in an important position as “The Voice of The Emperor." When he prepares to give the speech of a lifetime, one that will slow the rising tide of Christianity’s influence, he must choose whom he will serve.
Corrie ten Boom - As World War II sweeps through their city, Corrie and her family find themselves with an innocent Jewish baby, needing protection from the cruelty of the new Nazi regime. How will the ten Booms keep this baby and others out of harm’s way, and what will be the cost?
John Wesley - In this action-packed episode of the Torchlighters, meet the bold founder of the Methodist movement, while you learn about faith that works.
Robert Jermain Thomas - Young Robert Jermain Thomas is a Welsh minister with a gift for new languages. Though Christianity is illegal and Westerners forbidden, Robert has a new mission: to bring the Word of God to the Korean people, no matter the cost. What will Robert have to sacrifice to share God's Word with Korea?
Martin Luther - Martin Luther didn’t mean to spark the Reformation with his 95 Theses, but his realization that salvation comes through faith and not works ignited the revolution that changed the world.
Adoniram and Ann Judson - Adoniram Judson and his wife Ann were the first missionaries from the United States. The young couple set out for Burma where they worked to reach souls in a land where professing Christ would mean certain death.
Harriet Tubman - Discover how Harriet followed God, became the Moses of her people, and persevered despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles in this latest episode of The Torchlighters.
George Müller - George Müller lived on radical prayer, depending on God to supply all his needs instead of asking others for help—even in his most desperate situations.

Mary Slessor - Discover the story of the bold Scottish missionary and peacemaker Mary Slessor.
