Product Description

The Christian Heroes: Then & Now series chronicles the true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary deeds for his kingdom and glory.

Ida Scudder was sure she would never follow in the footsteps of her medical missionary father. But when she witnessed Indian women dying because their religious beliefs didn't allow male doctors to treat them, Ida heard herself pray, "God, if You want me to, I will spend the rest of my life in India trying to help these women."

For ages 10 and up.

Publisher's Description

"A wealthy Irish girl rescuing children in India? An English maid preaching the gospel in China? An American pilot serving missionaries in Ecuador? Christian Heroes" Then & Now chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory. These easy-to-read biographies are perfect for ages 10 to 100 Ida Scudder (1870-1960) was sure she would never follow in the footsteps of her medical missionary father. But a change of heart led Ida to spend nearly sixty years in India living out the truth and compassion found in Christ. Dr. Ida Scudder pioneered a first-rate medical school and hospital and brought life-saving health care to rural people, leaving an inspiring legacy of healing and hope.

Homeschool Specialists' Review

When I was homeshooling my children, I read aloud to them daily. We took a history-based approach to our reading time, using literature to tell the stories of our past. One series we pulled from regularly was Christian Heroes: Then & Now. This series not only told fascinating biographies of brave men and woman, it also exposed us to new countries and cultures.

There are hidden treasures in these books about our Christian ancestors. They tell tales that build our faith by revealing God at work in the lives of people who placed their trust in him! They are testimonies to how God will work through both ordinary and extraordinary people alike. They celebrate the type of courageous, dedicated, and godly heroes we want our children to admire.

Little pieces of the stories bring back the fondest memories of our homeschool days. I found these books personally faith-building, and I know they have helped shape my children's faith as well. Approx. 200 pages each, softcovers from YWAM.

    This is a book that every parent should read to their children. As I was reading this book to my children there were several times when tears ran down my face. What God did touched me so much. The work that he did through the Scudder's and others in India is amazing. It will allow one to see God's awesome power and the rewards of following Him and doing His work. This book will challenge readers to really get a clearer picture of missions and the work that it takes. Excellent book!!
