Item description for Danger on the Hill: Margaret Wilson Martyr for Christ (Torchbearers) by Catherine MacKenzie...
Overview "Run, run for your lives," a young boy screamed. The enemy was moments away but nobody took any notice. Again the young boy screamed as he flung himself into the stream and tried to pull himself out the other side, "Run, everybody, run. The soldiers are here." That day on the hill is the beginning of a new and terrifying life for the three Wilson children. Margaret, Agnes and Thomas are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in but it means that they are forced to leave their home and their parents for a life of hiding on the hills. If you were a covenanter in the 1600's you were the enemy of the King and the authorities. But all you really wanted to do was worship God in the way he told you to in the Bible. Margaret wants to give Jesus Christ the most important place in her life, and this conviction might cost her life. THERE IS DANGER ON THE HILL FOR MARGARET. THERE IS DANGER EVERYWHERE IF YOU ARE A COVENANTER. Read To Ages 7-9 Read Myself Ages 9-12
Publishers Description John Charles Ryle 1816 1900 was the first Bishop of Liverpool England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university poised on the verge of national recognition he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.However his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities. Throughout his period in office Ryle was respected by his colleagues to the extent that even one of his most strident opponents broke down and wept at the news of his death. He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today. This is probably why many of Ryle's writings have been continuously in print for over 100 years. Here Ryle explains that divisive often derided and misapplied by advertising term 'born again'. He explains what being 'born again' means why it is necessary and how you can tell whether you are. Much of the value of this publication though lies in what Ryle writes next. In his gracious yet firm way Ryle devotes the majority of the book to explaining how the objections people have had to the doctrine should be handled and overcome with gentle persuasion.It is a supreme example of the art of persuasion.
