Lanterns: A Memoir of Mentors, by Marian Wright Not Till I Have Done: A Personal Testimony, by Elizabeth Achtemeier Against the Wind: Memoir of a Radical Christian, by Dorothee Sölle
When Dorothee Sölle’s editor first suggested that the theologian write an autobiography, Sölle replied that she had better things to do. But the editor persisted, and the resulting book has been recently translated from German into English. Marian Wright Edelman, founder, director and advocate of the Children’s Defense Fund, wrote her memoir after recovering a long-forgotten diary from her college years. Elizabeth Achtemeier, Old Testament scholar and preacher, wrote her autobiography as a way of witnessing to God’s working in her life.
