This book is awesome to share God's grace and work with children!
JJ
It's a good way to pique their interest in reading more extensive missionary biographies.

We have read all of the Miller books with the kids and this is the favorite by far.

We were given this book as a part of Sonlight's curriculum and I have read stories to the children nightly from it. They are moving stories about adversity or danger faced with great faith by God's servants in mission work. I have skipped one story (about a the murder of a father) because I felt it was too much for my children...but the rest of the stories have been excellent. Someone above referred to them as horror stories. It's an unfortunate fact that much of human activity up to this day has been horrific. And, in fact, the Heroes books contain very similar stories (Boxer rebellion, etc.). I remember vividly as a child being deeply affected by Corrie Ten Boom's story, The Hiding Place; I never forgot it. "There is no pit so deep, God's love is not deeper still." I remember her father's parable about the train ticket to this day. God gives us grace in our hour of need to face whatever we must. I think it is good for our children to be aware not only of man's inhumanity to man (for they will have to face it), but especially of God's response to it--the Cross--and thus our own, carrying His message of mercy and forgiveness to humanity. These stories are just exciting enough to rivet the children's attention, but the "mature" aspects (e.g., a reference to temple prostitution in the Amy Carmichael story) are muted a bit for the ears of children. It's a good way to pique their interest in reading more extensive missionary biographies.

This book was recommended to us by the "Moore Foundation" and it is about the best book we have ever purchased. In fact we have bought the rest of the series which include Wisdom and the Millers and Prudence and the Millers among others. We read this to the Junior class and occasionally for Primary class for the mission story and this book is a hugh hit. Infact, whenever we read this book, folks are always wanting to know the name of the book and where they can purchase it. Now, most of the Junior class owns their own Missionary and the Millers book and I am here cruising Amazon for what I hope to be a similarly good mission book...that will be a very hard task as this one is so exceptional. If you want a really good missionary stories book, you've just found it!

Format: Paperback
The stories in the book are fascinating and well written. Every time I read one of the stories to my six and eight year old boys, I am on the verge of tears because of the beauty and power of God that comes through loud and clear.
My children love this book more than any other in our studies. Sometimes just reading the Bible goes over their heads - the concepts of the Bible are simple, but it is not written so a child can fully understand without adult explanation. The missionary stories are perfect. They are riveting and glorify the Lord. If these stories are "horror" stories, than so is the Bible filled with such. Just leave out a sentence here and there depending on the age of your children. One of the best books we own.

Format: Paperback
I hated the introduction, hated chapter 1, hated chapter 2... We're not going to go any further with this. Non-Christians are portrayed as having no good in them; Christians are portrayed as perfect. It's infuriating, offensive, not realistic, etc. Do we really want to teach our children that the people of an African village were poor, mean, and dirty, and then as soon as they received a Bible, they cleaned up their village and became hard-working people? That's not how it works. The condescension with which other groups of people are discussed is absolutely unacceptable.

Seriously, this is not a good way to teach your children.

This is a wonderful book that is included in Sonlight's 1st grade curriculum (homeschool curriculum). Amazing stories to share with your children that open their eyes to the world outside of their backyard. Some stories were hard to share, but I could see the look of understanding in their eyes as we kept reading, and kept on our journey around the world with the Millers.

This is a wonderful book with short concise true missionary stories. It can be read to young children, and is good reading for teenagers and adults.

It's is inspirational to see how God works through ordinary people and the miraculous things he does for them. Sometimes a tad graphic for small children. Readers can alter the violent exploits for younger audiences. For example, in one of the stories some bad men plot to kill a good man and angels protect him; the concept of killing is too harsh for young children, so the reader could say that the bad men wanted to hurt him.

My kids really enjoyed this book being read to them. I am buying a copy to give to a nephew for Christmas. I hope it opens a door in his heart for missions like it has in our family. We have moved on to Hero Tales now that we have completed this book and it gives a little more information on several of the same people as this book. I am really glad we started with this book to introduce missions to our kids. They always remind me to read missions every day and my husband likes to hear them too. And it is thanks to this book being loaned to me by a sweet friend!
