Product Description

Christianity is a faith in love with history. God took on human flesh and dwelt among us. The Spirit carried that divine work over the centuries, providing courage and maturity even amid our imperfections. Christians find their true family line not through tribes and ethnic blood but in the bond of faithfulness and shed blood that has united our family for millennia. We too often view Church history as the story of obscure aliens instead of the lives of brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers.
In this collection of forty-six brief biographies for children, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith--including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and C.S. Lewis. Through them we can begin to enjoy the old paths and find rest for our souls.

    My 10 year old son and I are enjoying this book. We are learning so much. I love the way this book is written. The chapters are short and hold your interest. My son ask me to read this book to him every day!

    Very interesting history for Christians. It is a little tough to read sometime as it talks of some of the tortures that Christians have endured, yet it needs to be told. Written so that older children/teens can know the truth of our history of our faith. Parents, please read first to decide what is appropriate for your child.

    I ordered this book for an Intro. to Church History class and it is interesting. It deliberately depicts the lives of Christian All-Stars in a positive life. I felt like I was getting the behind the scene glimpse of the real lives of these early Christians. The short chapters make the book all the more enjoyable.

    I used this book with a junior high class at a Christian school. The students choose a person from the book and prepared a 3 minute monologue. Their preformances were powerful as they used props and were in costume. Every family should read Trial and Triumph about the heroes of our faith.

    I found this to be a very useful resource. Teaching our children the price that has been paid to keep the christian faith should be of high priority. I do not have to agree with every view represented here to appreciate the value of these lessons. The early church suffered much, and many christians throughout the world suffer immeasurable cruelties because of their faith in Christ. This book was a great tool when studying church history.
