I have launched a new page on the website, devoted to curating links to missionary biographies.
The why is pretty simple: most of the time, when I talk to people about how they got their start in missions, reading missionary biographies is a key part of the beginning. Giving people a quick index to a list of published missionary biographies can help with the mission mobilization process.
Some of these are books, and while some are well known, others are less-familiar gems. If someone knows the “well worn” missionary books, recommending a book like “Guardians of the Great Commission” (the story of women in modern missions) could potentially be a way to fan the flames.
I’m also hoping that, by publishing this page, I can draw attention both to lesser-known missionaries, and get people to send me additional biographies to link. If you have suggestions, don’t hesitate to email me.
