If you read my last post, you know that I’m planning to share about some heroes of the faith throughout this year. I’ve been mulling over this idea, ever since I settled on my focus for 2014 (Knowing God’s People). Reading biographies and sharing them with you all is a great way to increase my knowledge and understanding of strong Christians who have walked the path before us, and keep me accountable to meet my goal!
I started with Corrie ten Boom, not for any particular reason other than that I’d just finished reading The Hiding Place. I also hope to write about Elisabeth Elliot, Francis & Edith Schaeffer, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Charles Spurgeon, Joni Eareckson Tada, Brother Andrew… and others who are yet to be determined.
I want to get you thinking about it too! I may be the one writing these posts, but I would love your input as well. So, I want to know what you think about…
- how you define a hero?
- what qualifies someone to be, specifically, a hero of the faith?
- why is it important to learn about Christian heroes?
- who are some of your favorite heroes of the faith?
- how have their lives influenced yours?
I hope you’ll share your thoughts in the comments! Also, I would love to accept some guest posts about your favorite heroes of the faith! Email me with your idea, and I’ll send you more details.
