Biographies

Personal testimony is probably the premier form of Christian communication; Jesus left behind no books, no compilation of doctrine…but four men record the principal events of his life, including a wealth of teaching. It seems that this is the best way of conveying the message of the gospel and perhaps it is still the best way, biography, autobiography – testimony; it is hard to contradict a person’s experience! There is such a wealth of wonderful books along this line; some of the best that I have read are reviewed here, some in detail, some more briefly.
