So many of us were challenged and inspired by the many Christian heroes of faith we learned about at our respective winter retreats, and I’ve noticed biographies flying off the bookstore shelves! To keep up the momentum, our spring reading challenge is going to be the Heroes of Faith Reading Challenge.
If you click on the link above, you can find the details on what you need to do in order to complete the challenge. In short, you only need to read 5 new books on any Christian heroes of faith. They don’t have to be about 5 different people. If you want to get super deep into one hero’s life, that’s totally fine.
My hope is that you’ll be inspired to greater faith as you read about these real people living out their commitments to love and serve God…and grow as a reader, too! 🙂
If you don’t know where to start, here is a short list of books you definitely can’t go wrong with!:
- George Muller: The Guardian of Bristol’s Orphans (Christian Heroes Then & Now)
- Give Me a Mountain & He Gave Us a Valley by Helen Roseveare
- The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
- The Little Woman by Gladys Aylward
- Mary Slessor: Forward Into Calabar (Christian Heroes Then & Now)
- The Shadow of the Almighty by Elisabeth Elliot (about the life of Jim Elliot)
Excited for all of us to continue being inspired through this challenge.
Oh, and yes, for those of you who are highly motivated by the prize, you can win multiple times. The more biographies you read the better for your soul, so it’s a win-win for you. 🙂
If you remember, I’m working on my goal to read all of the Christian Heroes series this year. I’m starting with all the women’s biographies, and I’m currently reading about Isobel Kuhn.
Which hero of faith are *you* going to read about first?
