Book #22: City Lives by Marcus Nodder

Number of pages: 213

This book contains fourteen biographies of Christians, some of whom are well-known celebrities. I was a bit taken aback by the book's use of third-person narrative for each of the biographies, rather than being direct accounts by the people who they are about, but this was the same format used in similar books I've read by D.J. Carswell.

The stories I enjoyed most were where was detail about how each individual became a Christian, rather than the story setting out that they were Christian from an early age, and the first story, about paralympian Steph Reid, particularly gripped me as it told of how she converted after getting her life-changing injury while out swimming.

Next book: The Air BnB Story (Leigh Gallagher)
