I am looking for books in my library that contain articles about outstanding christians in modern history ie D L Moody, Fanny Crosby, Billy Sunday, Billy Graham, just to list a few examples. I would like to create a collection of these resources. I Have logos silver 8 and many other purchased resourses.

Here's my collection rule for Biographical Resources:

title:biog OR subject:biog OR mytag:Biog -subject:("Jesus Christ", Gospels, "Bible - O.T.", Apostles) -mytag:BibleChar -type:media

Of course it depends on my having tagged some biographical resources as "Biog" and ones that are biographies of Bible characters as "BibleChar" so the latter can be weeded out of this collection. This collection will include entire monographs that are biographies of a single individual (such as C.S. Lewis: Creator of Narnia), so if you're looking for only books that are collections of shorter articles, you'll need to do a bit more curating yourself. There are lots of such in my collection, though. Here are a few examples:

  • 50 Women Every Christian Should Know
  • 131 Christians Everyone Should Know
  • Bible Interpreters of the 20th Century
  • Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals
  • Biographical Entries from New 20th-Century Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge
  • Biography of Gospel Song and Hymn Writers
  • The Christian Leaders of the Last Century
  • Christian Men of Science: Eleven Men Who Changed the World
  • The Complete Book of Christian Heroes: Over 200 Stories of Courageous People Who Suffered for Jesus
  • Courageous Christians: Devotional Stories for Family Reading
  • Famous Missionaries of the Reformed Church
  • Forgotten Heroes of Revival: Great Men of the 18th Century Evangelical Awakening
  • Handbook of Evangelical Theologians
  • Handbook of Women Biblical Interpreters: A Historical and Biographical Guide
  • Seven Men
  • The SPCK Handbook of Anglican Theologians
  • The Spiritual Lives of Great Composers
  • The Top 100 Women of the Christian Faith: Who They Are and What They Mean to You Today
  • Who’s Who in Christian History
  • Women of the Reformed Church

Christian History Magazine also has lots of good profiles of outstanding Christians.
