Wielding the Sword is a great introduction to the men who preached and the women who taught God's Word from the early church and throughout history. They stood up to heresy and oppression to show the Gospel to the world in a way that we can look up to today.
Linda Finlayson is a Canadian living in the Philadelphia area of the USA. She has enjoyed working with children in schools, churches and children's clubs. Bringing together her love of books, children and history has given her the opportunity to write the adventure stories of real people. Linda is married and has one son.
"Linda Finlayson's books have proved consistently popular with children in my congregation and I anticipate this one will be no exception. With a light touch, Linda recreates the lives of some of the great preachers of the past and brings children face to face with the men and women who guarded the gospel in ages past and offer us models of spiritual stewardship for the present." - Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
