Biographies are by far my favorite kind of book. I learn so much from these men and women of God, and am challenged to give all of my life to Christ. Part of what makes biographies so real is that I have met two of the authors, know people that met some of the other authors, and people that knew people that knew the authors. These aren’t just stories that someone made up. If these men and women could be used by God like this, so can I. So can you.
All of these are worth reading, but the ones with ***** are the ones I consider must reads.
