Ok. I just finished reading all 31 pages of the thread about which Christian books your are reading besides the Bible just to make sure this is not a duplicate. whew! Ok, in this one, please list any biographies of Missionaries you have read or are reading now. IMO reading a Missionary's biography or autobiography is one of the most helpful books besides the Bible that one could read. It gets past all the 'distractions' of theologies, histories and 'how-tos' that we often fill our minds and lives up with and "puts shoe leather" to our walk with Christ. That being said, I have read: "I will die free" by Noble Alexander. Imprisoned in Cuba 1962 for preaching the Gospel. "God's Smuggler" by Brother Andrew. Bible smuggler in Yugoslav 1957. "This poor man cried" by Norman Rohrer. Story of larry Wardand his work in 'Food for the Hungry' missions worldwide. "Peace Child" by Don Richardson. Autobiography of one man and his family's journey to the head hunter/cannibals of New Guinea to bring them the Gospel in 1962. "Bruchko" by Bruce Olson. Autobiography of this man's journey into the South American jungles to bring the Gospel to the Motilone Indians at the age of 19 in 1961. "Jonathan Goforth" by Rosalind Goforth. The story of this great missionary's work in China for his Saviour.
