More of Linda Finlayson's brief and skillfully written biographies for youth, of men willing to take risks for the name and glory of Christ in our world. They faced danger, difficulties, some of them great hardships. While reading their exciting stories you will learn what they did and why. For ages 8-12
This volume includes the stories of:
William Tyndale: who secretly translates the Bible into English and lives in danger of being imprisoned by agents of the king and, tragically, even the church.
Adoniram Judson: who risks his life so that the Burmese people can hear the gospel.
Jonathan Goforth: who survives an attack by Chinese rebels, but continues to preach the Word of God to the people.
Bruce F. Hunt: who faces imprisonment for refusing to worship the emperor, but God gives him a song to encourage him in his darkest hours.
Moses: who meets God at a burning bush and confronts Pharaoh about setting His people free.
The Apostle Paul: who is thrown into prison for sharing his faith, but goes on to have a leading role in planting and building the early church up in the faith.
These men were all willing to take risks. They faced danger and difficulties. Some even died for what they believed in. While reading their exciting stories you will learn about why they lived as they did, and how God helped them glorify His name.
With extra devotional features and life summaries, this illustrated book will help young readers to discover the excitement of a Christian life as well as the cost.
