The Power of the Biography

This article echoes one of my favorites genres: the biography. I am not much of a fiction person. I love history and biographies. It is much easier for me to plow through 900 pages on Alexander Hamilton than 200 pages of fiction. (Grisham and Baldacci are the exceptions. Sorry. I’m shallow that way.)

There are two autobiographies for Christian reading I highly recommend:

Confessions, by St. Augustine

Seven Storey Mountain, by Thomas Merton

I confess I haven’t read many Christian biographies, though Marsden’s work on Jonathan Edwards was fantastic.

Any favorites in your reading?
