THE IMPORTANCE OF CHRISTIAN BIOGRAPHIES

Hebrews 11 is more than a collection of Christian biographies, but it certainly is not less. There’s great benefit in learning from past Christian lives!

Here's a brief list of what Christian biographies do for our faith. Christian biographies...
     - show me belief in practice
     - help me to see how God uses ordinary people
     - challenge me to exercise my faith like the person I’m reading about
     - help form my worldview
     - grant a godward life focus
     - spur me on to labor for Christ
     - teach me how to pray & burden me for prayer.

The link below will lead you to a number of life summaries of Christians from the past. Enjoy the adventure!
