Franklin’s Pick: So Many Lions, So Few Daniels by Ray Comfort
Discover how to live fearlessly for Christ
Like Daniel in Babylon, Christians today are exiles in a hostile culture. Every day, we face the lions–the easier road of moral compromise, the lure of earthly wealth and influence, the temptation to give in to our fears or our apathy. Yet we are called to obey God rather than man, and we need courage to do it.
Award-winning apologist Ray Comfort wants to help you develop the fortitude to look into the mouths of lions without flinching, trusting that God not only will bring you to the other side of the trial but is refining you through it. This encouraging and practical book draws on inspiring stories from Scripture to help you identify the lions you face and build a strategy for combatting them, recognizing that nothing catches God off guard and reminding you that, by His power, you have victory over the darkness.
For any believer who sometimes feels beaten down, burned-out, or ready to give in, this book offers a spiritual shot in the arm.
Bessie’s Pick: Fanny Crosby: The Girl Who Couldn’t See But Helped The World To Sing by Laura Caputo-Wickham, Illustrated by Jess Rose
Read the true story of one of the world’s most famous hymn writers. Frances—or Fanny, as everyone called her—was blind for most of her life but rejoiced that the first thing her eyes would see would be “the face of Jesus in heaven.” Fanny used her extraordinary musical ability to write hymns we still sing today, such as “To God Be the Glory” and “Blessed Assurance”.
This beautifully illustrated children’s biography of Fanny Crosby (1820-1915) is part of a series designed to show kids that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
These stories can be read to young children or enjoyed independently by early readers.
