3 Titles in 1
Journey back to the days of the Scottish covenanters when men and women counted it all joy to be reproached for Christ's sake. These three stories, written for young people, are of true heroes of faith who were willing to suffer persecution and death rather than deny their Lord. They are remarkable examples of the grace God gives His people in time of need. Written especially for teenagers, but will be appreciated by adults as well.
1. The Persecuted Family: A Narrative of the Sufferings of the Covenanters in the Reign of Charles II by Robert Pollok
The lives and memories of our Christian ancestors, who suffered so much for the blessings of that civil and religious liberty, ought, one would think to be peculiarly interesting and sacred to us their posterity. Every sigh, we know, of our persecuted ancestors is recorded in heaven.
It is not only that we may pay them our debt of gratitude that we ought to acquaint ourselves with their lives. Youth, especially, have need to make themselves well acquainted with their lives. – The Author
