9 Christian biographies you should read this summer
In the last episode, we talked about 11 ways to grow spiritually strong this summer, and I mention reading great Christian biographies.I often talk about the importance of reading Christian biographies as a way to see God's faithfulness and movement in His people throughout history.And over the years, I've given a variety of lists of my favorite Christian biographies, but in this episode, I want to suggest nine titles for you to consider reading this summer. While there is some overlap, I think these nine Christian biographies are important to read for the days in which we live.Here's my suggested reading list (in no particular order):Brother Andrew: God’s SmugglerCorrie ten Boom: Tramp for the LordHudson Taylor: Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret (by Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor)C.T. Studd: C.T. Studd: Cricketer and Pioneer (by Norman Grubb)George Müller: Autobiography of George MüllerRichard Wurmbrand: Tortured for ChristJohn Hyde: Praying Hyde (by EG Carre)Christopher Yuan: Out of a Far CountryThey Found the Secret (by V. Raymond Edman)Bonus suggestions (honorable mentions):Darlene Deibler Rose: Evidence Not SeenJackie Pullinger: Chasing the DragonBrother Yun: Heavenly ManLeonard Ravenhill: In Light of EternityOswald Chambers: Abandoned to GodDavid Wilkerson: Cross and the SwitchbladeAlso, consider downloading a list of recommended reading (classic Christian books and other great biographies). While the list needs to be updated, it will give you a great starting point.
