Timberdoodle's review
 
How did these warriors for Christ live as boys? It is amazing to read how God can change both incredible sinners and lackluster boys into great champions of the Gospel. Making a stand for Jesus was not easy for them, yet they chose to do the right thing instead of the easy thing. Each book concludes its chapters with interesting facts, keynotes, and something to think about.

Ten Boys Who Didn't Give In highlights the lives of martyred reformation leaders and missionaries, including Polycarp, Laban, Sir John Oldcastle, Thomas Cranmer, George Wishart, James Chalmers, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Nate Saint, Ivan Moiseyev, and Graham Staines.

Ten Boys Who Changed the World includes such notables as Billy Graham, Brother Andrew, John Newton, George Mueller, Nicky Cruz, William Carey, David Livingstone, Adoniram Judson, Eric Liddell, and Luis Palau.

Ten Boys Who Made a Difference contains the stories of Augustine, John Knox, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Jan Hus, Hugh Latimer, Ulrich Zwingli, William Tyndale, Thomas Chalmers, and Lord Shaftesbury.

Ten Boys Who Made History recalls the childhoods of Robert Murray McCheyne, Martyn Lloyd Jones, George Whitefield, Charles Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards, Samuel Rutherford, DL Moody, Billy Sunday, AW Tozer, and John Owen.

In Ten Boys Who Used Their Talents, the latest and currently our favorite addition to the internationally best-selling series, snippets of 10 men's childhoods show how incidents in their early years affected the choices they made as adults.

Whether it is an amazing knowledge of insects, compassion towards lepers, or the ability to play world-class cricket, God always uses the talents and gifts of His people for His glory. While these men include the well known George Washington Carver and John Bunyan, they also include some of the more obscure like James Clerk Maxwell and Ghillean Prance. Because each chapter concludes with additional facts and questions to mull over, Ten Boys Who Used Their Talents makes a fine addition to your family's devotional time.

The ten boys mentioned are:
Paul Brand, a brilliant doctor whose research led to great progress in the understanding of leprosy.
Ghillean Prance, an environmentalist who was outspoken for the Lord.
C.S. Lewis, a well-known yet complex author.
C.T. Studd, a famous athlete who gave that up to become a missionary.
Wilfred Grenfell, a medical doctor whose adventurous life included being stranded on an ice flow.
J.S. Bach, who lost his parents while still a young boy, later lost his first wife and then his eyesight, yet used his musical genius to write music that spoke of God's glory.
James Clerk Maxwell, a professor of physics and astronomy who had enormous faith in God's ordering of the universe and spoke against the theory of evolution.
Samuel Morse, a talented artist who was inspired to invent the Morse Code when he returned home from a trip to the awful discovery that his young wife had died.
George Washington Carver, an exceptional scientist known not only for his intelligence, but also for his humility.
And finally there is John Bunyan, the author of Pilgrim's Progress, who spent his early years as a troublemaker and a troubled man.

Great Series March 3, 2015
Reviewer: Chrysta B.  
The short stories in these books are the perfect level for my third grade son. He loves the adventures, and I love the mini history lessons about real heroes.

Great Books! December 9, 2013
Reviewer: Claudia E.  
I bought these last Christmas for my Son and the girl books for my Daughter. My daughter has read almost all of them. My son has not read them all yet. Not sure why. But they do like them. I love them cause they are true stories that my kids will talk about for days to me. The reading its easy but not too easy. The stories are real and can break your heart and then lift it up again. I like them because it shows courage in the face of persecution and to never give up.These are books I will pass on to my grandbabies someday. They have a great message in every story.

interesting! January 14, 2013
Reviewer: Michigan Mama  
I thoroughly enjoyed each of these books. It was very interesting to learn a little bit about these great and influential men, and their lives as boys. The only complaint I could have, would be that the stories didn't always seem to "flow" as easily as I had expected. Sometimes the author jumps from the hero as a boy to the hero as a man, or vice-versa, and it was occasionally difficult for my kids to keep track. Otherwise a delightful and informative read in each of these books!

Great series! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Traci  
We use these books in the car or in the afternoons as light history for our kindergartener and preschooler. The books speak about the childhood of each of the famous believers included. I think it is so helpful for my boys to know that all great men were children once and struggled to obey and be helpful, just as they are now. The chapters are somewhat short with discussion/comprehension questions, prayer suggestions and opportunities for further study at the end.
