Editorial Reviews

Review

There is nothing new under the sun - that is definitely true with church history. Many of the same issues and problems face us today that faced the medieval church. So not only does this book give a good, fast-paced narrative through early christian history - it also highlights some of the mistakes and problems that have raised their heads again today. (Catherine MacKenzie ~ Author and CF4K Editor)

This is a great overview of Church history -- and a sobering look at the cost of following Christ in the early days of the church. While written for the youth market, I found it very readable as an adult. I've given copies to several friends with children and all are enjoying it. (Parent of a Young Reader)

My daughter tore through these books and can't wait for the next ones to come out. I finally wised up and read the first one this summer. A fine balance of history and personality. It made the ancient church come alive. How grateful I am to be in the same family of faith as these fallible believers. As a pastor I think this should be required reading for seminary students. Thanks Withrows for writing this series! (Parent of a Young Reader)

Most church history books for kids are either too textbook-ish to enjoy or too brief and sanitized to be accurate. Our desire for the History Lives series is to provide an engaging, accurate introduction to the true story of Christianity. These "fictionalized" accounts are based on extensive historical research and incorporate quotes from the character's actual writings. Volume 1 is not about the "heroes of the faith," but merely some of the flawed human beings that God used to establish his church in the first 600 years after Christ. We hope that, like us, you will be encouraged to more faithful living by their stories. (Mindy Withrow ~ Blogger, writer)
