Christian Encounters, a series of biographies from Thomas Nelson Publishers, highlights
important lives from all ages and areas of the Church. Some are familiar faces. Others are
unexpected guests. But all, through their relationships, struggles, prayers, and desires,
uniquely illuminate our shared experience.
Some may know Jane Austen simply as the English novelist whose books are required reading in
high school and college. Perhaps it wasn’t until the BBC’s extremely successful TV miniseries of
Pride and Prejudice or Emma Thompson’s film Sense and Sensibility that many became entranced.
Now younger readers are flocking to Austen with a unique twist in the bestselling Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance, by Seth Grahame-Smith. In this Christian Encounters biography, fans of Jane Austen will discover the Christian faith that was in the weft and weave of her character and how it influenced her writing and her life.
