Review of Peril and Peace, Volume 1: Chronicles of the Ancient Church at Aslan’s Library

Earlier this week Sarah shared her review of Peril & Peace, Volume 1: Chronicles of the Ancient Church at Aslan’s Library.  Here is a brief excerpt from her review:

The Withnows’ book is historically solid (just check the bibliography at the end!) and clearly animated by a love for the saints who have gone before. I think I won’t be waiting another year to read the next one.

  • Excellent review! Our family has also enjoyed this series though my oldest is only eight. Honestly, we love all of the biographies that Christian Focus has published. That being said, I do think that the Gospel message is a little clearer in some of their other biographies. However, I’ve told my friends that if they can only afford a limited number of titles, this series will get them through the bulk of church history nicely. It is a great series for children that will whet their appetite to further investigate those men and women whom God has used to further His Kingdom. May our children grow in their knowledge of God that they may also be able to stand firm for Him!
