This collection of real-life stories are drawn from the lives of fifteen influential Christian role models. The biographical sketches combine history, practical life applications of the Bible, reading, and character education for elementary children. Three real-life stories for each personality highlight a character quality. A few comprehension questions are included to help students make personal applications and ensure basic understanding of key concepts.
Written by the award-winning authors of the Trailblazer Books, these sketches can be used with any character curriculum, as part of a reading/comprehension program, with unit studies, or as a family devotional. A list of the character qualities covered in the sketches is given at the back of the book to make it easier to incorporate into any curriculum.
Volume 1 includes such Christian heroes as David Livingstone, Dwight Moody, Samuel Morris, Gladys Aylward, William and Catherine Booth, Amy Carmichael, George Muller, Hudson Taylor, Harriet Tubman, and John Wesley.
