Family stories are so important, and stories from our Church-family may be even more so. In this collection of brief biographies, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and lesser known fathers and mothers of our faith, including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and C.S. Lewis. Written for ages seven and up.
"The Psalmist calls us to praise the lord and “tell of his works with songs of joy.” God’s greatest works are not the creation of the mountains and seas but his acts of saving love, which transform sinners into children of God. these stories were not written to exalt great Christian men and women. they were written to exalt the lord who made them great..."
"Here are forty-six gripping stories of men and women of Christ from Polycarp to C.S. Lewis and Richard Wurmbrand! The whole family will be able to read, enjoy, and celebrate these gifts of God to His Church."
- Dr. David Calhoun, Professor of Church History, Covenant Seminary
What better way to bring a Christian child to aspire to spiritual greatness than to set before him or her the heroes of the Church's past and a picture of godliness and fortitude in flesh and blood. It is the Bible's own way to train up children in the faith. We used these sketches in our family worship. Our children enjoyed them at first reading and have remembered them since. I enthusiastically recommend Hannula's Trial and Triumph.
