    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 us.The book begins with St Patrick, Galileo, Anne Bradstreet, John Bunyan, Johann Sebastian Bach, Jane Austen, D.L Moody, George Washington Carver, Sergeant York and William F Buckley, Jr.All 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 quote Sergeant York If this country fails it will fail from within I ...

    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 Aquinas from the medieval era, a few Reformers and some modern people to round it out Right Wrong.The 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 oth...
