Journey alongside one of Christianity’s most courageous pioneers in Vance Christie’s biography for pre–teens.


Born into humble beginnings in Scotland in 1813, Livingstone’s faith and passion for exploration shaped his extraordinary life.


Inspired by the Gospel’s call to serve others, Livingstone pursued a path of missionary work and exploration, driven by a deep conviction to share the love of Christ with those in distant lands. Despite facing adversity and hardship, he remained steadfast in his belief that God had called him to Africa to spread the message of salvation.


Livingstone encountered incredible challenges throughout his expeditions, from treacherous jungles to fierce wildlife, yet he persevered, trusting in God’s guidance every step of the way. His adventures led him to discover breath–taking natural wonders and to forge friendships with African tribes.


His legacy extends beyond his explorations: his unwavering commitment to ending the slave trade and uplifting the oppressed reflects his deep faith and compassion for humanity. Through his remarkable journey, Livingstone showed the power of God to transforming lives and shaping history. His story continues to inspire believers around the world to follow God’s call with courage and conviction.
