Book Description

There are lots of ‘idols’ these days. But do you have any heroes? What’s the difference? Idols are people we say we ‘adore’ because they are famous, or rich, or good looking, or because they have amazing talents, or special abilities perhaps we wish we could have. Heroes are people who are willing to live and die for what they believe.

There are currently three volumes in the series: Ignatius of Antioch, Irenaeus of Lyons, and Polycarp of Smyrna. Each of these hardback books for children, from the pen of Sinclair Ferguson, is beautifully illustrated by Alison Brown.

    The initial Series Set includes: Ignatius, Irenaeus, and Polycarp. These three, compellingly written and illustrated books, will captivate the attention of the child in your life. What a wonderful way to spend storytime with them. There are few other stories more worthy of telling children. Learning about the early Church Fathers from these brief, colorful, books will stick with your child or grandchild over their lives. They will know how these men lived out what they believed. I recommend the entire set.Sinclair Ferguson manages to condense his vast knowledge down into stories that will edify children, and the adults reading to them. The gospel message is proclaimed so simply that your children will hear it and see how it was lived out by these Church Fathers, Heroes of the Faith. The illustrations are colorful and skillfully done. Alison Brown’s illustrations will help bring history to life.Each hardcover book has a Timeline in the back, and a, “Personal Word to the Parents About Heroes of the Faith” from Sinclair Ferguson. The books are printed in the U.S.A. and the font size is 15/18pt in size. These books are well made and should last for years properly taken care of. I hope you enjoy reading them to your kids and grandchildren as much I enjoyed reading them for the review.
