Item description for Courage And Conviction (History Lives #3) by Brandon Withrow & Mindy Withrow...

Overview
Let history come to life - just the way it should do. Read the stories of the reformers in the 16th and 17th centuries who changed the face of the Christian church forever. Meet the German monk, the French scholar, and the Scottish tutor who protested corruption in the church. Get to know the queens and explorers who risked everything for the freedom to worship according to their consciences. It was a time of war and upheaval, but also a time of promise and hope. From Erasmus and Luther to Katherine Parr and William Bradford, God used different personalities in different places to bring sweeping changes to church government and the way we worship. Learn from their mistakes and be encouraged by their amazing strengths and gifts. Extra features throughout this book look deeper into issues such as the Scientific Revolution, wars of religion, the Puritans, and the settling of the Americas. This is the third book in a series intended to cover the history of the Christian church through its people and key events. They are written with 9-14 year olds in mind but the modern, relaxed and enthusiastic style is infectious. This is history without the wooliness - and with all the wonder.

Reviews - What do customers think about Courage And Conviction?

Excellent living history resource  Mar 22, 2009
I was hesitant to buy this book because no one had reviewed it yet, and I find this site user reviews such helpful aggregated benchmarks of all the choices out there! ...That said, I bought this book anyway and hoped it wouldn't be a clunker. I've just finished reading it, and am so glad I did because this book is an excellent resource for teaching children about the Reformation. The chapter vignettes read like short plays about key figures of the Protestant Reformation. They immediately cut to the action and bring the characters to life with vivid dialogue and drama. The stories highlight key aspects of the subjects' contributions to the Reformation without sounding preachy or stilted. I bought this book to complement our Year 2 Unit 2 "Tapestry of Grace" curriculum. I teach a history co-op so I am always on the look-out for books that present history in a lively way. This book makes an excellent read-aloud for lower grammar level (with some vocabulary explanation and on-the-fly editing of the talk of beheadings and whatnot!), or an independent reader for upper grammar level and above.

I look forward to reading the other volumes of this series myself, and know that my kids will equally enjoy and appreciate them. Books like this serve the invaluable role of making history interesting and accessible to children. Can I get an 'Amen!' for that?!
