Book Description

George Muller was a thief when he was younger and spent time in jail for his crimes. Brother Andrew grew up in Holland during the second World War and played tricks on German soldiers. Nicky Cruz grew up in a family where spirit worship was a regular occurrence. He became a very angry young man, out to cause trouble.
John Newton was captured at a young age and forced to join Her Majesty's Navy, leaving his friends and family behind. What happened to these young boys and how did God make them into men who changed their world? Read how George Muller was finally trusted with millions of pounds. Discover how Brother Andrew grew up to be a smuggler of Bibles. Read how Nicky Cruz was rescued from self-destruction and eventually went on to begin one of the largest youth organisations reaching out to hurt and confused young people throughout the world.

"This is a wonderful book - in fact it's a wonderful series. Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. People that you have never met come alive on the page. Christian legends and unsung heroes all become friends you can understand and look up to. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Adults as Well as Kids January 18, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought these for my two sons ages 8 and 11. Little did I know that these simply written stories would be just as interesting for me! I heartily recommend these stories for the whole family -- the format lends itself easily to family study.

Great for reluctant readers. The chapters (individual stories) are short but very well written! I would recommend this for 2-5 grade boys!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Inspiration for Young Boys May 18, 2013
By Helen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ordered this for my 9-yr-old grandson who read it completely before putting it down!! It was refreshing to see Billy Graham included among the "10 boys" even though this is not a particularly religious book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice series for young boys April 4, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I could only find the boxed sets of these books at local bookstores. Amazon luckily sells them individually. They are rather short but good for the attention span of young boys. The stories are interesting and appropriate for maybe age 7or8 and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection for young readers. August 11, 2014
By Paula
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great collection of stories about missionaries. Each story length was perfect. It took about 2 days to read each story and was interesting enough to keep my son's 8 year old attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting August 11, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 11 yr old grandson that it was interesting. I thought that it would be challenging. But it's hard to pick out a book for someone else. I read it and thought that it was well written.
