    I am interested in finding out about those saints who died young. I would define young in this case as 50 and under. That is not a disparagement against those over 50, of course. :) You are only as old as you feel.

    Wow! I'm just happy that you consider 50 year olds as being young!
    That mean's I'm still a chipper lad!

    While I am still a chipper lad myself, as I grow older, 50 does not seem so old. I am certain that as I near it, it will seem less and less so.

    Related to the topic, Robert Murray M'Cheyne was just shy of his 30th birthday when he died.

    A recent Saint that I can think of that went to be with the Lord at a young age (under 50) would be Greg L. Bahnsen

    I'd like to include Keith Green (October 21, 1953 - July 28, 1982) unless you are only including theologian saints. As Bob Vigneault started down the road with J.C. Superstar, Keith Green was a big influence on my early years, although an essay from Spurgeon was the tipping point.

    Lon, I believe that this link is definitely what you are looking for, or atleast a great starting point for sure. Thanks Andrew!!! :bigsmile:

    Love his music. Can be a bit heavy handed though. Ever hear his To obey is better than sacrifice? nails you to the wall every time. :candle:

    Christopher Love died (was beheaded) at the age of 33, and still left enough material behind for at least 20 books. I wrote about his life and death in the book "A Spectacle Unto God."
