Summary

Ten short biographies of Christian lives that still impact our culture and lives today. In a book titled 10 Christians Everyone Should Know, one would expect to find writings on such fine souls as Saints Patrick and Nicholas. But some surprises are in store, for this little tome holds unexpected short biographical gems such as that of Jane Austen, whose steadfast faith was the undercurrent in her writings. And then there is Sir Isaac Newton, who changed physics from a purely philosophical subject into one involving mathematics and careful observation, but who actually wrote more on theology than physics. Then there is William F. Buckley, who inspired and incited three generations of Americans to engage more actively in public life, while personally pursuing a quiet but devout faith in Jesus Christ. Through their relationships, struggles, prayers, and desires, each person profiled uniquely illuminates our shared experience. We are now living in the world they created and understand both it and ourselves better in the light of their lives. 10 Christians Everyone Should Know also includes: Anne Bradstreet D. L. Moody Galileo George Washington Carver Johann Sebastian Bach John Bunyan
