I just finished reading this book aloud to my children, ages 8 and 6. Each day, they begged me to read more. Our family was already familiar with what happened to the five missionary martyrs, including Nate Saint and Jim Elliot. After reading this book, we all felt that we were a part of Nate Saint's family, and we wept at the end of the book. The book was very well-written and very appropriate to read to children, but also very interesting for my husband and myself. In fact, about halfway through with my children, I finished reading it myself while they were asleep. Nate Saint's story was very challenging to all of us to fully devote our lives to Christ.

This book is all about a Christian man that gave his love of flying planes to God. This inspriational story about Nate Saint tells of his life, from his childhood, to his tragic death in Ecuador. Nate was actually a martyr for God. By the death of his friends and himself, he acutally opened up the door for others to minister to the savage Auca tribe. This is a wonderful book, I highly reccommend it!

This is a slightly better written book than many others in its series. It accurately portrays Nate Saint as the brilliant, strong, selfless man of God that he was during his brief life on earth. The dramatic story of a real Christian role-model, and certainly worth a buy. Many aviators could learn from his feats as well.

Nate Saint: On a Wing and a Prayer is a fantastic book that depicts one of the greatest stories ever told. It is a story of unbelievable forgiveness and compassion. As much as one desires a different ending, no other ending would have impacted so many lives for eternity. If you are a believer, it is a MUST read. If not, it is still a great historical retelling of unbelievable sacrifice and compassion for humanity.

I bought this book for my 13 year old daughter. She has read many of the "Christian Heroes" books and she absolutely loved this one. She kept talking about it and how interesting it was. In fact, I feel like I read the book, because she told me all about it. It's definitely one of her favorite books of this series.

A great read for any age. Will take you on a journey of selfless sacrafice and the reality of a real missonary who gives the ultimate sacrafice for the love of Christ. A book you can't put down until the end.

The authors bring to vivid life the events leading up to the martyrdom of five brave men as they follow the mandate of Christ to go to the uttermost parts of the earth with the Gospel. Very readable and engaging for all ages.

This is a great series that can be enjoyed by young children and adults. I used them as part of the training for a short term missions campaign. Each of the fourteen team members read a different biography in this series and then reported to the rest of the team. It was reminder that the training topics we were learning were relevant and lived out by the faithful and fruitful missionaries introduced by this series of biographies. For many of the team this was their first introduction to reading Christian biography and they loved it!

Positives of this series:
1) Great introductory overviews of the lives and ministries of the individuals.
2) Basic reading level for an increasingly illiterate culture
3) Short enough to be read quickly in a culture with an increasingly short attention span
4) Available in Kindle and audio book for the technologically inclined
5) Well written and holds your attention without being exaggerated and exploitative
6) Chapters are short and can easily be read to children at bedtime or by adults on lunch breaks

Negatives of this series:
1) Due to their brevity and target audience the series does not deal with the more negative aspects of an individual's struggles with sin and the weaknesses in their personality as sinners saved by grace.
2) Does not come across as hagiography (so idealizing the person that it borders on idolatry) but these introductions are not the place to get the full picture of these godly but imperfect champions for God. Instead they are great springboards to more extensive biographies that deal with the fuller picture of these heroic but very human Christ followers.
