Author Bio

Brandon and Mindy Withrow are both bloggers and writers.

From the Author

"Protestants tend to think of the Middle Ages as the dark and oppressed period between Augustine and Luther. But God did not abandon his people for 1000 years! Missionaries carried the gospel to foreign lands, the Bible was translated into various languages, and Christians held each other accountable before God. Picking up where volume 1 leaves off at the close of the sixth century, these stories bring to life both the believers and the unbelievers God used to grow his church in the medieval era. We hope youÂ’ll find the History Lives series an engaging, accurate introduction to the true story of Christianity." -Mindy Withrow, Author

Editorial Reviews

"There is nothing new under the sun - that is definitely true with church history. Many of the same issues and problems face us today that faced the medieval church. So not only does this book give a good, fast-paced narrative through early christian history - it also highlights some of the mistakes and problems that have raised their heads again today."

    I love living history in general so when I read the first book I asked mom to get the rest of the series. I love this series because it makes history more real and easy to understand.

    The majority of chapters in this book present the story behind an important figure in the early church, written with the action, dialogue, and description of a good novel. Interspersed between these chapters are a few short, strictly nonfiction chapters, explaining such things as how Islam affected Christian history.The novelized chapters cover Gregory the Great, Boniface, Charlemagne, Constantine and Methodius, Vladmir, Anselm of Canterbury, Bernard of Clairvaux, Francis of Assisi, Thomas Aquinas, Catherine of Sienna, John Wyclif, and John Haus.Although a book covering Christianity during this time period must focus on the Catholic church (because there was no other church), the authors stress: "Modern Protestants disagree with quite a few medieval ideas, but that does not mean that the men and women of the Middle Ages were always wrong or that they did not love God's Word. In fact, despite their differences, later Protestants admired many medieval thinkers...Like Christians of all eras, they made both positive and negative contributions to the church."What I Like: Very few of us don't enjoy reading a novel more than a dry history book. Monks and Mystics gives us the best of both worlds by giving us historic fact combined with good story telling.What I Dislike: My gripe with this book is its treatment of the Crusades. Unfortunately, many people have forgotten the fact Muslim armies invaded Europe, hoping to make them Islamic lands, and Monks and Mystics doesn't seek to remind anyone of this. It almost seems as though the Withrows wish to make the Crusades apolitical and non-religious. This is not to say Europeans were without fault during the many Crusades, or that some endorsed the Crusades for political reasons or personal gain. However, there were understandable reasons for Europeans to fight many of the Crusades, also. Overall Rating: Despite this flaw, the book is Very Good, overall.Kristina SeleshankoChristian Children's Book Review
