Rescue and Redeem
Volume 5: Chronicles of the Modern Church

Let history come to life - just the way it should! The is the fifth book in a series intended to cover the history of the Christian church through its people and key events. Written primarily for 9- to 14-year-olds with a modern, relaxed, and enthusiastic style. Many adults also enjoy these as a good read. This is history without the wooliness – and with all the wonder.

As the modern world exploded with rapid changes- in transportation, in communication, in manufacturing- people around the globe faced overwhelming new challenges. As Christians arrived for the first time in other countries, they realized that being a Christian was about living out the gospel in every culture. And they realized that great injustice was everywhere! So they met the challenges of modern life with new ways of communicating Christ's ancient gospel.

From Niijima Jo and Pandita Ramabai to Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Janani Luwum, they set out to rescue God's global people and redeem them to new life in Christ. Read the stories of the Japanese samurai who traded his sword for a Bible and the Hawaiian princess whose faith strengthened her to defend her nation. Discover the German and Ugandan pastors who stood up to murderous dictators. Get to know the teacher in India who rescued child widows and the writer in Britain who created a world in a wardrobe.

Rescue and Redeem October 3, 2011
Reviewer: L.W. from Ohio  
Rescue and Redeem is full of information. There are about 10 stories in each book. Many I'd never read before. Even the Characters I had read about  in other books came to life in Rescue and Redeem. I would definitely recommend this book, you won't want to put it down. It is great to read a book that makes learning an adventure.
