John Huss

I enjoy reading biographies about Christian missionaries.  After struggling through a Edith Blumhofer biography of Fanny Crosby, (it seemed to twist and turn and was not easy to follow), I switched to those written for children.  Alan Millwright, Sam Wellmen, Janet & Geoff Benge are some of the authors of the "Heros of the Faith" series that I liked.  

Now for the next 2 months, as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation:  

 (In 2017, 31 October will be a lawful holiday in all of Germany.[19] In order to do this, German states which do not celebrate the Reformation Day annually have passed adequate legislation or made regulations. These states are Baden-Württemberg,[20] Bavaria,[21] Berlin,[22] Bremen,[23] Hamburg,[24] Hessen,[25] Niedersachsen,[26] Nordrhein-Westfalen,[27]Rheinland-Pfalz,[28] Saarland[29] and Schleswig-Holstein.[30]
In the United States, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America will be hosting an event to commemorate the Reformation in Washington, D.C.

I plan to read biographies about the reformers.  The Cripplegate blog will be posting short biographies of these men on Thursdays for the next 8 weeks.
