10 Christians Everyone Should Know Book Review

Book Review of 10 Christians Everyone Should Know
  by John Perry (editor)
"Lives of the faithful and what they mean to you. "

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

      This book is a compilation of short biographies on 10 Christians from history that have made an impact on the future.   The personalities are spread across the ages, ranging from circa 380 - 2008, and are set in chronological order.   The magnificent people that are covered are:
  • Saint Patrick
  • Galileo
  • Anne Bradstreet
  • John Bunyan
  • Johann Sebastian Bach
  • Jane Austen
  • D. L. Moody
  • George Washington Carver
  • Sergeant York
  • William F. Buckley, Jr.  

     I thoroughly enjoyed reading each biography.  The condensed versions of each persons life story and world impact is very easy reading.  The authors give a satisfactory job at providing back story and a world history within each memoir.  I especially enjoyed Anne Bradstreet and Jane Austen, since I have previously delighted in their work.  They both exemplified strong and spirited women, that I could identify with.  I endorse this book for high school students and adults.  This is a great living book resources for students.  It's a quick way to learn about some of the godly people that have graced Earth.  You will be encouraged by their stories and educated about their periods in our Christian history and heritage.

(I received this book free from as part of their blogging program.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.")

NEXT UP!  Reviews coming your way this Fall....
