Product Description:

Mala, called Sparrow, and her brother Abdon struggle to survive after the death of their parents. Mala sews for the wives of wealthy Roman aristocrats, and watches in dismay as Abdon turns to a life of crime. In the midst of her sorrow and loneliness, the whole village is rocked by the transformation of one of its residents at the hands of the healer from Nazareth. Mala tries to make sense of it all, while praying continually to Jehovah. In the end she witnesses the most significant day in all of history and because of it, life would be forever changed.

We personally own a lot of these books. Many of them are among our children's all-time favorites. That's saying a lot, since my children are voracious readers. There's such variety in this line - they run the gamut from biography to fantasy, but consistently enrich. It is indisputable that every book you read becomes a little part of you. Knowing this, we want to be careful not to fill our children's heads and hearts with objectionable, disturbing or useless material. Many of our customers are Christian homeschoolers, as we are. Even among this group, parents differ in the degree of restriction or criteria they apply in selecting materials they consider appropriate for their children, depending upon their particular convictions in this area. However, we feel confident that even the most convicted parent would have no qualms about this thoroughly Christian series. While books in the Light Line have a "strong Christian message," they are not "preachy." Rather, they skillfully entertain while presenting that message, with vivid characters and strong, exciting story lines. The biographies are among the best my children have read - they have been particularly stirred by With Daring Faith, the story of missionary Amy Carmichael. Series are listed first in each section, followed by single books listed alphabetically.
