History Lives: Chronicles of Church History

There are so many awesome world history books written for young readers, but you don't see a whole lot of church history for that age group. That's just one of the things that make this series, written for 9-14 year-olds, so special. Each book tells the story of church history through one period in history, starting with Peril and Peace, which begins its story of the ancient church in approximately 30 A.D. Each book begins with a timeline of major events during that time period and an introductory chapter giving an overview of the church during that period. Chapters flow chronologically, with most chapters focusing on the life of an important figure in church history, while occasional chapters discuss different aspects of the church during that period. The biographical chapters are fascinating with realistic dialogue and story-like telling that bring the facts to life in a way children (and adults!) can understand and appreciate. Although any trip through church history is full of martyrs and persecution, I appreciate the way this series shares these stories in a positive way. The focus is on the faith of each individual; and, although many stories end in death or imprisonment, there is joy, not gloom hanging over these chapters. Inspirational, informative, and well-written, these are a natural fit for your history or Bible studies! Bibliographies and maps are included. Pb. - Jess
