Book Review: 10 Christians Everyone Should know

10 Christians everyone should know by John Perry is a series of mini biographies of great people in history including ST Patrick, Galileo, Ann Bradstreet, John Bunyan, Johann Sebastian Bach, Jane Austen, D.L. Moody, George Washington Carver, Sargent York, and William F. Buckley Jr.  Each story tells about the person’s life and how their life was affected by the faith.  All of them had their unique outlook on their faith and how it should be spread, lived, and perceived. 

I enjoyed this book.  There were a couple of people I had only vague memories of and knew little about.  IT was interesting to read about their diverse lives and how they have affected the church today. 

Like others have commented the chapters are fairly quick and easy reads.  There is also a lot of references and additional information that can be researched.  Approximately 30% of the book is references.

This would be a great book for children to learn about these biographies in a homeschool or supplemental curriculum.

Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free from www.booksneeze.com to read and review.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.  To learn more information go to www.booksneeze.com
