Courage and Conviction by Mindy Withrow (Homeschool subjects covered: History Reformation, Church History)
Let history come to life just the way it should do.Read the stories of the reformers in the 16th and 17th centuries who changed the face of the Christian church forever.Meet the German monk, the French scholar and the Scottish tutor who protested corruption in the church. Get to know the queens and explorers who risked everything for the freedom to worship according to their consciences. It was a time of war and upheaval, but also a time of promise and hope. From Erasmus and Luther to Katherine Parr and William Bradford, God used different personalities in different places to bring sweeping changes to church government and the way we worship. Learn from their mistakes and be encouraged by their amazing strengths and gifts. Extra features throughout this book look deeper into issues such as the Scientific Revolution, wars of religion, the Puritans and the settling of the Americas. This is the third book in a series intended to cover the history of the Christian church through its people and key events. They are written with 9-14 year olds in mind but the modern, relaxed and enthusiastic style is infectious. This is history without the wooliness and with all the wonder.
This book is recommended reading in Tapestry of Grace and Illuminations.
