The exciting true stories of heroes of the faith for 9– to 14–year olds
This giftbox collection of colorful trailblazer stories will delight young minds. Each book in this box set contains the story of a man who preached the word of God and who God used powerfully.
Some of the characters in this box set didn’t seem like likely preachers – John Stott got from Sunday School as a child for hiding a dagger in his sock and Martyn Lloyd–Jones had a promising career as a well–known doctor – but readers will be able to see how God equips those he calls to spread his gospel.
Spanning several centuries these men preached to people from all walks of life. George Whitefield was the first to preach to slaves in the United States. Charles Spurgeon preached to large crowds in England, including Queen Victoria. But they were all united in their passion to see people saved.
These biographies follows the trailblazer’s journey to faith, and on to the work that God had planned for them. With lots of dialogue, these engaging stories show how God uses normal individuals to bring about his purpose.
Each book in the Trailblazer series features:
- Thinking Further Topics for each chapter to help readers think about how what they’ve read applies to their life today
- Timeline of important events in the lifetime of each book’s subject
