This month my publisher Thomas Nelson released the book 10 Christians Everyone Should Know (paperback and e-versions here and here). It’s a sort of Reader’s Digest version of the Christian Encounters series of brief lives.
Ten bios were condensed into this book by editor John Perry. The eclectic list of subjects includes St. Patrick, Anne Bradstreet, Jane Austen, Seargeant York and my own take on William F. Buckley. The result is a treasure chest of historical trivia and — leaving aside any judgment on my own contribution — some very solid writing. I commend it to readers of Jeremy Lott’s Diary.
