Top 5 Heroes

Top 5 Heroes Header Image

We are officially past the halfway point for 2017 so I thought it was time for a hero roundup. It hasn’t been easy picking just five from the many swoon-worthy heroes I’ve read about thus far this year, but here they are just for you (not numbered or ordered in any particular way because, really, that is just impossible):

Why?  Because he’s different. He isn’t tall, dark and handsome, 6’2″ with muscles for days. He’s your average, skinny, office-worker type who geeks out over the latest inventions – in this case, the bicycle. Yet he still puts himself out there emotionally and risks his own life to protect the woman he loves. What’s sexier than that?

Why? Because his patience and understanding should earn him a medal! Beyond understanding, his compassion in the face of racism and prejudice is a thing of beauty. This man has a heart of gold.

Why? Because this man literally lays down his life for the people he loves. Four times.

Why? Because he is a character redeemed but not unrealistically perfect. The breadth of his growth from his first introduction in The Scarlet Coat to the end of The Patriot & The Loyalist is a true testament to God’s ability to change a person for the better. Yet his transformation isn’t implausibly miraculous. He doesn’t wake up one morning a better man. He works at it. He fails. He tries again.

Why? Because despite incredible pressure from everyone around him, he refuses to budge from what he knows is right. Yet he is neither arrogant nor afraid to admit when he’s wrong, and he’s open to learning from others.
