Great Biographies in the Library!

 
The FPC Library’s biographies have now been completely catalogued and can be searched for online.
 
This Sunday (September 17), the library table in Fellowship Hall will be displaying many of our great biographies about many fascinating people!
 
We have books about well known Christian figures like C. S. Lewis, Joni Eareckson Tada, Corrie Ten Boom, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Billy Graham, Dwight L. Moody, George MacDonald, and many others.
 
We also have captivating stories of little known Christians and their lives. For example, we have books about a woman who was aborted and lived to tell about it, a man kidnapped by Colombian guerrillas, two women who were imprisoned by the Taliban, a Russian ballerina who was arrested by the Soviet Union, an acting LAPD police chief, and many more.
 
Stop by on Sunday to browse our biographies or check online to find a specific one!
