Featured Review

Defenders of the Faith Series
Linda Finlayson's books have proved consistently popular with children in my congregation and I anticipate this one will be no exception. With a light touch, Linda recreates the lives of some of the great preachers of the past and brings children face to face with the men and women who guarded the gospel in ages past and offer us models of spiritual stewardship for the present.

Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Description

Wielding the Sword is a great introduction to the men who preached and the women who taught God's Word from the early church and throughout history. They stood up to heresy and oppression to show the Gospel to the world in a way that we can look up to today.

Reviews

Linda Finlayson has a gift for distilling complicated facts into explanations that are understandable for children. Wielding the Sword is well-written, engaging, sincere (I thank Ms. Finlayson SO much for not condescending to our young people!), and informative. I love this series. I can hardly wait for the next book! Christian Focus 4 Kids is truly doing a wonderful job producing fantastic middle grade reading materials for Christian families.
