Product Description


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)

Kids Are Not Old Enough To Choose Death Aug. 10 2014
By R. WINN - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you want to inspire children to virtuous religious lives, choose positive stories. Children are too young to decide to die for their faith, and not mature enough to decide when it may be appropriate.

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.

Better to die for a mythical cause than find a cure for cancer! Aug. 10 2014
By Boothby171 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book! I have it on my bookshelf, right next to "Blowing one's self up for Allah!" and "Building missile encampments next to schools and Mosques for peace"

What the holy heck is wrong with you people?!?

Prioitize faith and commitment over worldly values Jan. 2 2015
By Kenneth Olson - Published on
Format: Paperback
My daughter loves these books! Each chapter features a different woman's story of faith under persecution finishing with a brief historical note for context, Keynote and Think paragraphs to point out important lessons to learn and how to apply them to girls' lives today, and a prayer which might be used as a devotion to complete the lesson. I recommend reading together to discuss, plus there is a quiz at the end of the book.
Some question the need to study the lives of martyrs, but 100 million Christians face persecution today, particularly in Muslim countries, and up to 80% of acts of persecution are directed at people of the Christian faith. Even here in America there is tremendous pressure to live in the world, rather than the Word. I don't expect my children are likely to face the choice to die for their faith, but if she sees that others have that level of commitment, hopefully that will encourage her to stand up to other pressures, social and economic, to compromise her Christian beliefs and values.

What the....... Aug. 10 2014
By Bria Lowry - Published on
Format: Paperback
Personally I don't think kids should be reading a book that teaches them its ok if people abuse you. Also, it is a farce that Christians believe they are somehow persecuted, when society has left them alone and let them walk all over those who do not believe as they do. Females should definantly not be taught Christianity or they will never become strong, self sufficient women, just doormats for guys that want to get some and leave them pregnant and alone.

Perfect companion for child abuse Aug. 10 2014
By JennyB - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you want to psychologically abuse and torture your young, innocent child, then this is the book for you. Teach them that there is an imaginary man in the sky that they have to do unthinkable things for in order to keep him happy, because that won't mess with their poor young minds at all. Yes, children, sometimes you must DIE FOR GOD. DIE FOR GOD OR YOU'LL GO TO HELL. I don't see anything wrong with that message, seems perfectly suitable for children to me.
