More Christian biographies

We hope you have been enjoying reading this collection of biographies of Christian women so far, and benefitted from Nicole's tips on reading Christian biography. John Piper has written an article, found here, to further encourage us in the reading of biography. In it he writes:

Good biography is history and guards us against chronological snobbery (as C. S. Lewis calls it). It is also theology—the most powerful kind—because it burst forth from the lives of people like us. It is also adventure and suspense, for which we have a natural hunger. It is psychology and personal experience, which deepen our understanding of human nature (especially ourselves). Good biographies of great Christians make for remarkably efficient reading.
There are many more great biographies, from the cloud of witnesses who have gone before us, out there. So here is a list of more biographies of Christian women, taken largely from this post over at Ebenezer stories on the benefits of reading Christian biography. Let us know of any others that you have enjoyed reading:
