  1. Christine Norman says:

    Half of the people in this book were familiar to me Even so I learned about them and the way they lived out their Christianity The other half were not so familiar so I really enjoyed their stories Everyone lives their Christianity a bit differently as these accounts point out Very interesting

  2. Glynith says:

    I was inspired to read this book while I was reading the 12 Extraordinary Women Biographies are not really my cup of tea But 12 Extraordinary Women made me want to know about the history of our Faith Not just the people in the Bible but also the Christians before usThe book begins with St Patrick Galileo Anne Bradstreet John Bunyan Johann Sebastian Bach Jane Austen DL Moody George Washington Carver Sergeant York and William F Buckley JrAll ten are from different times They were of different professions But we have heard read and listen about them and their works in some way They were all greatly respected and all have very strong Christian Faith Even Galileo with his scientific mind and straining relationship with the church of his time was a believer Each chapter is a little synopsis of the lives of each of the 10 Christians There is a lot to learn from each of them I would like to uote Sergeant York If this country fails it will fail from within I think we've just got to go back to the old time religion

  3. Laura Lane says:

    This book was a little hard for me to get into I think it's because it started with St Patrick and information is a little sketchy on him There are lots of folk tales that surround him but little verifiable fact As I began to read about Galileo I became interested By the time I got to Anne Bradstreet a Puritan writer of poetry I was looking forward to my minutes of snatch reading You know snatch a few minutes here snatch a few minutes there I am considering offering it to my children to read They tend to be history buffs There was a good flow through the book even though it was written by several authors The introduction by the editor John Perry brought it all together While this is not the first book that I'd recommend for fun reading it does provide a good anthology of Christian biographies for someone who is wanting to be encouraged in their faithI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review

    The title 1o Christians Everyone Should Know immediately caught my eye I enjoy biographies so I figured a book highlighting ten important Christians would be right up my alley With a good knowledge of church history I thought I could guess at least a few of the persons who would be included probably Athanasius or Augustine from the early church Francis of Assisi or Thomas Auinas from the medieval era a few Reformers and some modern people to round it out Right?WrongThe list of figures in this book is surprising A few of the people are well known for their contribution to the Christian church such as St Patrick John Bunyan and the composer Bach Many of the others are well known but not because they were Christians I especially enjoyed glimpses into the lives of people like Jane Austen and George Washington Carver The best chapter in the book is on Galileo whose inclusion may surprise people who just assume the church hated him and he hated the church But the fact is he was a faithful Christian The final two chapters in the book were the most curious to me Sargent York a hero of WWI and William Buckley a renowned conservative columnist It was here than anywhere else that I asked could they not have found anyone else in the 20th century any other “Christians I should know?”I enjoyed learning both of their stories but this reveals the flaw in any sort of book like this The reader will always wonder why certain people were included and others were not If the purpose of the book is to shine light on Christians who have made large contributions to the world contributions not specifically “Christian” then the inclusion of people like Buckley and Austen makes sense On the other hand if we’re looking for Christians who have made an impact in explicitly Christian ways such as Bunyan and St Patrick why include Buckley and Austen?The reason appears to be that these ten were selected because the authors of the chapters on each of them has also written a longer biography So if you like the Anne Hutchinson chapter pick up the full length bio on her Or any of the other nineOverall any uestions or ualms I may have over who was included and why the fact is that they are ten interesting people who had faith in Christ expressed differently in each of their own times and contexts Each chapter is a good story This would be a good book for anyone who may be a fan of one of these people and would be interested in learning about others In other words if you liked Pride and Prejudice learn about Jane Austen hereand as a bonus you will also meet nine other intriguing peopleI do uestion the usefulness of books like this in the year 2012 If I really want to learn about Jane Austen uickly that is if I do not want to read a full length bio but just want a brief on her life why buy this book when I can go to Wikipedia? In the face of the vast amount of information on the internet such books as this may not have a futureAt the same time I did read it My interest in St Patrick or Galileo brought me here and I benefited by learning about the rest Bringing these ten stories together introduces the reader to the diversity of people who have been faithful to Christ over the centuries So check this book out to learn and be inspired by ten great Christian saintsNote BookSneeze provided me with a copy of this book to review

    “10 Christians everyone should know lives of the faithful and what they mean to you” ISBN 9781400203611 2012 by John Perry book editor covers the Christian life andor values ofSaint Patrick ca 380 ca 490 by Jonathan RogerGalileo 1564 1642 by Mitch StokesAnne Bradstreet 1612 1672 by D B KelloggJohn Bunyan 1628 1688 by Kevin BelmonteJohann Sebastian Bach 1685 1750 by Rick MarschallJane Austen 1775 1817 by Peter LeithartD L Moody 1837 1899 by Kevin BelmonteGeorge Washington Carver ca 1864 1943 by John PerrySergeant York 1887 1964 by John Perryand William F Buckley Jr 1925 2008 by Jeremy LottThe book is a collection of bibliographical essays compiled arranged andor edited by Perry who penned two of these essays These short bibliographies are an attempt to show what being Christian’s supposed to be — strong and faithful to overcome challenges as the following uote from the introduction“We see as well that Christianity is timeless This is good news for those of us who fear for the future of the faith in this so called ‘post Christian’ era Saint Patrick was born in the fifth century AD William Buckley died in 2008 As different as their worlds were — and as different from the worlds of Galileo or Austen — they nonetheless faced some of the same obstacles Christianity goes against the most deeply ingrained tendencies of the human heart We are by nature hopelessly self centered As Jeremiah 179 warns us ‘The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked’ Scanning the headlines of today’s newspaper or news website will bear this out Chances are that every tragedy reported there is the result of someone taking what he doesn’t have simply because he wants it Robbery rape war kidnapping embezzlement and all the rest come from the deceit and wickedness withinChristianity on the other hand teaches us to be humble selfless and sacrificial in our lives Humankind alone has no power to overcome our dark natural tendencies; only the divine power of God through Christ makes it possible From the time of Christ to our own the world has remained a treacherous and unwelcoming place The obvious way to deal with it is to practice treachery in return Christ through His followers teaches us that the better way is through kindness and compassion It lightens our burden in this life and readies us for the unalloyed joy of the nextSaint Patrick and Mr Buckley and everyone in between had to deal with the same treacherous world populated by the same wicked hearts And so in this fundamental way Roman Britain and twenty first century New York City put up the same barriers to Christian living And the same faith courage and willingness to sacrifice achieve the same God given success in overcoming them”– John PerryAfter each bibliography there’s a uick reference to the Christian Encounters Series Thomas Nelson The book sort of serves as a sampler of this series of books

    10 Christians Everyone Should Know Lives of the Faithful and What They Mean to You gives you abridged introductions to the biographies in the Christian Encounters Series from Thomas Nelson Publishers In chronological order you meet the lives of Saint Patrick Galileo Galilei Anne Bradstreet John Bunyan Johan Sebastian Bach Jane Austen DL Moody George Washington Carver Sergeant York and William F Buckley JrThough other Christians may have gotten attention it's interesting to dig into the lives and choices of these preachers housewives authors composers and bishops Some seem to live ordinary lives or in the words of editor John Perry It would be almost impossible to imagine ten people different from each other than these” Every human is uniue and so are Christians Every believer can share his or her faith and inspire others

  9. Emily (Heinlen) Davis says:

    The stories in this book are easy to understand and explain why each individual is important to Christianity The book is written so that the every day person can understand what the author is trying to convey I like how the history is less about dates and about stories and bits about the person's life That makes the person seem real to the reader I'm not sure why these particular 10 people were chosen and I think this would make a great series

  10. Mike says:

    This book was ok It provided short biographies of 10 people thus the title who nearly everyone in the US has heard of The biographies focused on each subjects' Christian faith and how that influenced themThe writing wasn't all that great It felt somewhat forced at times Or maybe I was just tired when reading it I received this book as a part of the booksneezecom blogger program
