Nathan is the son of a temple moneychanger, and he knows that only Jews are allowed into the temple's inner court. Any Gentile found in the temple is killed, yet Nathan chooses to lead a young Gentile who is seeking God into the temple. From that moment, a long chain of events ensues and intertwines with the Biblical accounts found in Acts 6 and 7 that leaves Nathan to struggle with his Jewish heritage and the words spoken by those who are followers of Jesus.

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.
