10 Christians Everyone Should Know

10 Christians Everyone Should Know -- Lives of the Faithful and What They Mean to You edited by John Perry

This book tells about the lives of 10 Christians you may have heard of, but likely don't know as well as you think.  These 10 Christians are from all walks of life and include Galileo, Jane Austen and Saint Patrick.

The back of the book says "For lovers of biography, for homeschool or study groups, for anyone seeking encouragement in the Christian walk."  But the emphasis should be on the 'lovers of biography' part.  When I read in the book title: "lives of the faithful and what they mean to you" I expected that this book would be inspiring.  What it is, is a collection of biographies written very chronologically and dryly with little inspiration or encouragement.

I would recommend this book for people who are interested in history, but unfortunately I can't recommend it for those looking to be encouraged in their own Christian faith.

Discosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book through Booksneeze.com in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Wow - thanks for such an honest review! I would certainly like to know more about some of the Christians you named, but the dry biography aspect doesn't interest me! I appreciate your candor!

    1. I know what you mean Kate! I love Veggie Tales "biography" on St Patrick -- educational and fun! lol...
