These Christian stalwarts were once young boys playing games, learning from mistakes and growing up in quite a different world.
But was it that different? Irene Howat has researched the lives of these men of God and draws out lessons we can all relate to, especially youngsters today.
Find out how Samuel showed people that love works better than fear; John made friends with powerful rulers and humble craftsmen; Jonathan helped the Iroquois Indians and then was asked to teach at Princeton; George preached Salvation to thousands and saved the lives of children; Robert lost his brother but found Jesus; Dwight sold shoes in a shop and then taught children in a caravan; Billy played professional baseball and then preached the gospel; Charles became a Christian in a snowstorm and then told the world about Jesus; Aiden rescued orphan lambs and then he was saved by Jesus; Martyn became a doctor but found a better medicine for souls.
Irene Howat is an award-winning author and a talented artist in Ayrshire, Scotland. She is married to a retired minister and they have a grown up family.
"This is a wonderful book - in fact it's a wonderful series. Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. People that you have never met come alive on the page. Christian legends and unsung heroes all become friends you can understand and look up to. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap!" - Catherine MacKenzie, Author and CF4K Editor
