The series of Christian Biographies for Young Readers was born in response to a need for simple but accurate and informative books on men and women of church history, emphasizing God’s preservation of His church and doctrines rather than moral samples to follow. Masterful illustrations capture the imagination of readers, and photos help them to realize that these stories are really true.

“[These books] are beautifully produced and will no doubt give much pleasure to children, as history books appropriately targetted did to me as a boy” — Prof. Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of the History of the Church in the University of Oxford and Fellow of St. Cross College, Oxford.
