Product Description

From the Back Cover

Five Complete Novels! Faith and History Come to Life Throughout history, steadfast Christians have paved the way for dramatic changes in the world. The Christian heroes from the TRAILBLAZER BOOKS had the courage and strength to stand up for the God they believe in. Their amazing stories of hope and adventure, described through the eyes of young fictional characters, are timeless lessons for young and old. The Hidden Jewel When John Knight and his mother get to India, they are shocked that a young girl is being legally forced to marry her uncle, but Irish missionary Amy Carmichael brings relief when she arrives to fight for the freedom of the young child bride. Shanghaied to China When Neil Thompson is shanghaied to be a cabin boy on a ship bound for China, he finds comfort, friendship, and faith from missionary Hudson Taylor. The Warrior's Challenge Joseph Shabosh yearns for independence, but the Mohegan warrior he has befriended is the enemy; David is unsure whether to believe in the Mohegan warrior or to put his trust in the Moravian missionary David Zeisberger. Race for the Record Alastair's missionary parents are thrilled when they discover that Joy Ridderhof, founder of Gospel Recordings, is coming to the Philippines and will record tribal translations of the Gospel message so the Palawanos tribe can learn about God. Blinded by the Shining Path Alfredo Garcia is kidnapped and forced into a terrorist group, but when he must prove his loyalty or risk death, Alfredo is certain his encounter with Pastor Romulo Saune was arranged by the One who saves.

By joyful spirit TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Oct. 27 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We absolutely love these books, they are perfect for reading aloud to any age, very readable and exciting. My kids love them and never want me to stop reading. What an amazing way to get to "know" some of the people we expect to spend eternity with! Educational, as they give good insight into different aspects of history and geography, as well as having a great moral perspective. I can't recommend these highly enough.

Some fact, some fiction. Not a good mix. Oct. 18 2011
By Osama bin Jones - Published on Amazon.com

I have read more than five biographies of Amy Carmichael, and her life does not need any fiction thrown in. I don't believe mixing fact and fiction is ever a good idea for what is supposed to be anyone's biography. Especially for a book intended for kids. It only confuses.
. . . . A comparison can be made with a historical novel such as Leon Uris' "Mila 18", a story of the uprising of the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto in WWII. Not many details are known of the actual persons and events that actually took place within the ghetto. From the very start of the book it is understood to be a novel with the names of real and famous historical persons referred to in the story.
. . . . But when dealing with a real person's life, why not stick with the truth? The same applies to all the other persons' stories in this series.
