Brave heroes and bold defenders

Shirley-Raye Redmond (Author), Katya Longhi (Illustrator)
"Meet men who have used their God-given talents to live out their faith to the fullest. They come from a variety of backgrounds, eras, and ethnicities, but each one has answered the Lord's call on their life in bold and innovative ways. Children of all ages will be inspired by the stories of C.S. Lewis-professor and author of the influential Chronicles of Narnia series Tim Tebow-athlete, Heisman trophy winner, and outspoken follower of Christ Chuck Colson-author, political advisor, and criminal turned prison reformer John Newton-clergyman, abolitionist, and writer of Amazing Grace Father Damien-priest who dedicated his life to helping lepers in Hawaii These and the 45 other defenders of the faith featured in this book have made a profound impact on the world around them, and in many cases changed the course of history. Strong, smart, and sometimes outspoken, these men are tremendous examples of God's love in action. These inspiring profiles will captivate kids' imaginations and encourage them to discover their own gifts and how they can use them to glorify God"-- Provided by publisher
