In this Literature course for 7-8 grade, students will read three classic works of literature written from a Christian perspective, including a historical fiction account of the life of Christ, a novel, and a classic missionary biography.
Titus: A Comrade of the Cross
Originally published in 1894, this fictional recounting of the life of Christ was so popular that after six weeks, another 200,000 copies were produced by the publisher. Kingsley retells the life of Christ, using the four Gospels as her guide. Titus powerfully shows the mercy and compassion of Jesus for sinners. In this story, you will find sadness and sorrow, but you will also find the power of Jesus at work to “heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.” (Isaiah 61:1)
The Swiss Family Robinson
Following a raging storm in the Pacific, a Swiss family is shipwrecked on a deserted island. Together, they will labor to build a new Switzerland, in a faraway place. The family will learn, over and over again, that God is the all-merciful Provider of everything that we enjoy. God is the bountiful Creator who has made the things of this earth for the benefit of His creatures.
The Life of Henry Martyn
Originally published in 1832 by the American Sunday School Union, this short biography of one the greatest missionaries of the 19th century was written to encourage young people to dedicate their lives to the sacred work of serving the Lord Jesus Christ. Henry Martyn willingly gave up his life for the cause of Christ’s gospel in faraway lands. He spent years in India and Persia, laboring to translate the Scriptures so that the peoples of those lands would come to know the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
