If you like this, you'll love these:Take a look at the Torchbearer series, in particular - Danger on the Hill - the story of Margaret Wilson. A story of an eighteen year old girl's struggle with persecution. Her story lives on and it tells us to stand firm too. ~ Catherine MacKenzie (Author and CF4K Editor)
This book is a mixture of exciting, sad and challenging testimonies. I enjoyed reading about Blandina, Perpetua, Lady Jane Grey, Anna Askew, Lysken Dirks, Marian Harvey, Margaret Wilson, Judith Werghburg, Betty Stam and Esther John. These women loved their saviour and lived their lives which emulated Christ in many practical ways. I found this challenging because it made me think that I should stand out and tell people about God and not to have the fear of man but rather to have the first fear of man but rather to have first the fear of God. Life can be hard being a Christian at home or school, but with the Lord's strength and grace he enables us to shine forth as his light. I recommend this book to everyone, including Mums & Dads. ~ Evangelical Presbyterian One little girl read these stories and wondered about how these girls could be so brave! That is what hits you in the face when you read about these characters - their courage, their uncompromising stance for God's truth and the God who gave them that truth in the first place. At a time when young christians around the world know what real persecution is, help your child to understand that not compromising is something that they can do.Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap! ~ Catherine MacKenzie (Author and CF4K Editor)See all Product Description

It doesn't matter if you are Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Animist, Atheist or whatever. If children aren't old enough to decide for themselves if they should have cookies or candy for breakfast everyday, then they are not old enough to decide whether the religion taught to them by loving parents is one they should die for.
In grade school, the nuns taught me a song "Faith Of Our Fathers" in which we sang how "sweet" it would be to die for our faith. Not one of us had any idea what death was; we were just singing what we were told to sing. This is not teaching a holy faith; it is programming an unholy martyrdom (and luckily, it didn't take; I don't think the nuns really wanted it to.)
When you're an adult, then you can make adult decisions. Teaching children that they might want to die for their faith is a bad idea. There are many more positive books for religious children.
What the holy heck is wrong with you people?!?
