The themes of the second book in this series are Missionary tales and remarkable conversions. Other themes covered in the series are Living for God and the value of scripture Missionary Tales and Remarkable Conversions; Honoring God and Dramatic Deliverances; Faithful Witnesses and Childhood Faith.
Joel Beeke and Diana Kleyn have taken a selection of real life incidents and fictional narratives and developed them into a series of devotional books.
Scriptural references throughout the book use the King James Version of the Bible and the questions are also based on this version.
The stories themselves include a good mixture of historical adventure, childhood experiences, remarkable instances of conversion and dramatic, edge of your seat, rescues from danger.

"There are introductions to the world of the imagination in which everything seems new, painted with bright, delicious, and painful colors. No enjoyment can compare to they craving for a story being satisfied. When such tales are joined to eternal truths and winsome lessons, never to be forgotten, what family delights are displayed." - Geoff Thomas
