Item description for Ten Boys Who Made A Difference (Lightkeepers) by Irene Howat...
Overview Would you like to make a difference? These ten boys grew up to do just that - but first they had to change the church. How did God change them? Augustine discovered the love of God and changed the way we think; Knox focused on God's word and told his country the truth; Luther rediscovered God's truth and gave it to ordinary people; Calvin realized that salvation was a gift from God and not a reward for what he did; Tyndale longed to print the Bible in a language that everyone would understand; Latimer urged people to read the Bible for themselves and made enemies as a result; Hus taught that God is in charge of the church and the world; Zwingli challenged people to obey God's word in every area of their lives; Chalmers called the church to show Christ's compassion to the poor and Shaftesbury pushed the church into making Christ's love a living reality for everyone.

What a great little book written to introduce another generation of young boys and girls to some of the great heroes of the Christian faith. Ten Boys Who Made a Difference is part of an 8-book series where Howat explores the lives of some great men and women giving the reader just a short snippet of their lives. The book is written to the younger reader - I would think that a 2nd or 3rd grader could read these books on their own, but some of the issues raised in this book need the explanation of a spiritually mature person - in this one, Howat explores the lives of some of the great men during the Reformation period and introduces the issues of purgatory and indulgences as well as the corruption of the church. I would suggest that these books be read as a parent/child joint venture with the parent taking every opportunity to explain these issues so that their child would understand and would use Scripture as the foundation for that understanding. I am actually leading a group of 30 dads and 36 boys through this book over the summer and we are all excited about the opportunity to read a book with our sons that will hopefully encourage them to take their spiritual journey seriously as they read about these 10 men that sacrificed greatly for the cause of Christ.
I really cannot even begin to recommend this book highly enough - not only will your children be exposed to some of the great heroes of the Christian faith, but I believe a seed will be planted that will result in younger children wanting to know more about these men and women of the faith as they grow older - and that would be a great thing for our country if our young adults were reading the works of Augustine, Luther and Calvin and were engaged in the cultural battle like Knox, Tyndale and Shaftesbury were. I think you'll enjoy reading these books with your children.
