Okay, I have spent a fair amount of time looking at these suggestions and resources.  WOW there are some really great ones!  Ben, your suggestions really intrigued me...all three of them!  Erasmus probably the most, but I feel as if I might be repeating my paper a bit on Abelard, which shows me I'm drawn to the scholarly types! LOL

I am particularly interested in Henrietta Mears. I actually have some books by her and find her "no nonsense" approach to Bible study really refreshing in this world of fluff (sorry...a tiny rant there).  

I remain open for any other suggestions.

I have my PhD exams in a week: History of Science, American Religious History, and Reformation History, so I've been getting a really broad overview, and getting to know those I named. Glad they were of interest.

Hildegard von Bingen was a force of nature and ahead of her times. Surprisingly she has not been mentioned already. Her Selected Writings are available in Kindle format. Best wishes to you in your studies, Cynthia. 

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Thanks for this wonderful suggestion.  I remember looking at her in my previous class.  However, my paper has to be on someone from the reformation to present.

Ben!  Wishing you the very best and will likewise lift you in prayer!  I've always known you to be quite insightful here on the boards so I'm trusting that will help you go rather far.  History of Science, I think, would do me in, but I am rather fascinated by American Religious History.  Please be sure to let us know how you do!

Ok, sorry I took my eyes off the ball. How about Kathryn Kuhlman FL ebooks has a bio available. She is seminal to the Charismatic movement.

Thanks for the support and prayers, all. It's appreciated and needed. I'm extremely anxious, since this is my second round. My first attempt at a PhD, which included an MA plus four years of coursework, was torpedoed because apparently I couldn't sightread Babylonian well enough. So I bring extra baggage to this. Of course, different school, different field, different kind of exams. 

One week after I finish the written, I have an oral defense (May 20), and then if all goes well, I'll propose my dissertation. I'll report back sometime after the 20th. 

Thanks again.
