Last week I posted about The One Problem With Christian Biography I was seeing in the evangelical pool I swim in so comfortably. Almost every recommended bio is of pastors or missionaries. But most Christians are not pastors or missionaries.
Below are 10 books about Christians, none of whom are pastors or missionaries. Most of these were recommended to me. I can only recommend a couple of them since they are the only ones I’ve read – Lewis and Vanaucken. I’ve read a few biographies of Bradstreet since I was introduced to her poetry in college. But the others I know very little about.
It was not easy coming up with 10. Especially when you are trying to stay away from athletes and entertainers. Feel free to recommend, endorse and kindly question any of these in the comments. Or recommend more.
