Christian biographies not only stir the soul, but provide great examples of men and women in history who have lived lives of surrender, obedience, and faith.
Such lives can encourage, exhort, and press us unto Jesus Christ, revealing His faithfulness and reminding us of the kind of life that Jesus calls us to.
In this episode, I discuss three reasons why reading Christian biographies help our spiritual lives and why you need to start reading one.
