Highly recommended for home-schoolers, teenagers and today's youth in need of heroes.
Often we label books like these as being too graphic and descriptive for children, but I would like to suggest that allowing our young people to read of these accounts will do wonders for the church. Nate Saint, Jim Elliot their compatriots, and family are heroes to modern Christendom, and therefore should be offered to our children as such. Our children will lead the body of Christ in the years to come and they should be inspired by men and women of faith and courage. Give your child a "hero" that cared about nothing more than spreading the truth of Jesus Christ.
The Fate of the Yellow Woodbee may be a suitable introduction for your pre adolescent child. It is written by Dave and Neta Jackson and published by Bethany House. As always read these books to determine whether or not they are appropriate for your child.
"I seek not a long life but a full one, like you, Lord Jesus"- Jim Elliot
