Publisher's Description

News from the Middle East finds us wherever we live in today’s world. Children often wonder about this far-removed land, while parents struggle to teach their children about Islam.

This book is especially useful for family devotions and Sunday school classes. Tales of Persia includes seven beautifully detailed full-page illustrations.

Author Bio

William Miller spent forty-three years as a missionary to Iran where he translated and prepared several books and Bible commentaries in Farsi. He has also been Chairman of the Committee of Fellowship for Faith for Muslims and a member of the US Council of the Bible and Medical Missionary Fellowship.

In order to support his family, Gasem worked hard in his little shop in the bazaar in Meshed, Iran. Every day at lunch time, he would close his shop buy some bread and cheese and go home to share it with his family. One day, the grocer wrapped the cheese in the page of a book. After the meal Gasem read the story on the page to his family. It was so interesting that Gasem continued to request the cheese be wrapped in that particular book’s pages. The book was a Persian New Testament. And the pages of that New Testament introduced the whole family to Christ.
Tales of Persia is full of wonderful, true stories. First published in 1979 for family reading, this simple, profound book just had to be published once again for us to read. In 1919, Presbyterian missionary William Miller answered his Lord’s call to go to Persia, now known by its ancient name of Iran. He fell in love with the people and the country, living there until the late 1960s. This humble, caring man writes delightfully, with empathy and minimal fuss, about his adventures, the people he cherished, both missionary and native, and his Lord. Van Patter’s black and white sketches draw out the meaning behind each story. Willing to learn from Muslims about Islam, Miller approached the people at their level, introducing Christ in ways they could understand. He does the same for us in this book, tying it all together with Scripture. The customs, mores, religion, everyday life, and the heart of these people become alive and real to the reader. You may have already met Miller through his book for the adult reader, A Christian Response to Islam. This author has a deep understanding of his subject and a talent for presenting the deeper truths at an understandable level.
Although written primarily for older elementary school age, Tales of Persia appeals to all ages from preschool to adult. Homeschoolers will delight in the fact that long before it was called homeschooling, Miller’s mother taught her son at home. Tales of Persia will be cherished by many: the individual reader, family reading circle, Sunday School, VBS, church camp, the homebound, and those thinking of becoming a missionary. It will make a useful aid for introducing people to the need to answer a call from the Lord.
Meet missionaries in covered wagons; a shepherd boy and his lost sheep; Sa’eed the brave doctor, both beloved and hated; the little girl Fatima who loved Christ and dared all for Him; and many more. Tales of Persia is a book to enjoy and learn from. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

Editorial Reviews

Tales of Persia is a gem that I want my grandchildren to read. Much that we hear about Iran is frightening. Here we learn about another side—children, moms,and dads, shepherds, sick people—and missionaries who take risks to bring healing and news about Jesus to Iranian people. The contagious love of God for Iranians shines through on every page.
A great book by a great missionary. I recommend it very highly as a book to be used to encourage a new generation of Christians to do gospel missions among Muslims.
From the time of David and Esther, light has shined out of Persia. Today more Persians are glowing with the radiance of Jesus. Some are martyred. Their testimonies are an axis of hope. This wonderful heritage shimmers through the stories in this book.
These stories illustrate that the gospel has the power to change the lives of Muslims and bring them to faith in Jesus. I enjoyed reading this book, as did my family.
Timeless tales, brimming with details of the brilliant advance of the gospel in Persia, now called Iran—a land now under the shadow of Islam. We learn what Islam is, how it differs from Christianity, and why people need to be saved from it. Highly recommended.
