This series of books is captivating! I enjoy them every bit as much as my children do. Even my nearly 14-year old son cannot put them down! We own about 4 of them now - but my children have requested the entire series. Little-by-little, hopefully we can do that for them!

The books are exciting, moving, and are great faith-builders. The missionaries featured become heroes in the eyes of my children. I cannot recommend this series high enough. Hope you'll give it a try!

We have greatly enjoyed each book that we have read in this series, until we reached the one on John Wesley's life. It was painful to get through and left we feeling discouraged and frustrated with his life. He practiced extreme legalism, publically shamed a girl who did not marry him, may have been too influential is an overenthusiasm for fasting which lead to a young man's death, copied and published another man's work with no initial nod to the original author, and neglected his wife. Hmmm. His zeal for preaching to the masses and enabling lay ministers is admirable, but was too little to help our family enjoy this book.

Thanks for writing such a great book. I really enjoyed reading it. I liked the way you put it together with all of the details given and the way it was written and the way John Wesleys trials were presented as it was GOD doing everything. THANKS!!!

If you have ever wondered how Methodism came into being, this is the book for you! I was personally brought up as a Methodist in England and had NO clue about some of what we read in this book! Needless to say, sadly Methodism has definitely moved away from its roots.

John spent his early years in Epworth, twenty miles from London. His parents, Susanna and Samuel, married in 1688 in the same month that King William III and Queen Mary ascended the throne. Samuel was a rector of a Church of England church. John’s parents were very strict. Susanna could speak and write both English and French which was very unusual for women in that era when only 1 in 4 women could sign their name.
Samuel, not money savvy, was always in debt. Before the devastating fire of Feb 9th, 1709, Samuel spent 3 months in Lincoln Debtor’s prison. The fire changed everything. The family was homeless and penniless. John was sent to live with a family that just 24 hours previously he was not even allowed to associate with. It was one year before the family was reunited. What was this about Old Jeffrey, a ghost, in the rectory?

Later in life, believing he was called to Georgia, John found himself on the boat, Simmonds, in 1735. He was onboard with Moravians sent out by Count Zinzendorf. What did he write in code that was not deciphered until the 1930’s?! Encountering a storm, John was surprised that the Moravians were not afraid to die like he was! John, although extremely legalistic and expecting others to follow him, did not have a personal relationship with Jesus and was challenged by the Moravian leader, Bishop August Spangenberg. How did John end up with a warrant over his head and escaping back to England?

This book is an informative an d inspiring. It provides insight into how Methodist's became a movement of revival spreading across England, North America and the world. May God visit on all his people another great awakening in this century.
