VINEGAR BOY

This heartfelt story places the reader alongside a disfigured little boy who is responsible to provide comfort for prisoners meeting their death by placing a sponge next to their mouths as they perish. The sponge has been soaked in vinegar and herbs. This sad, orphaned child had heard of the Messiah and hoped that this healer might see his face and heal him. The little boy never dreams that it would be Christ's face that he sees in a life-changing encounter.

Vinegar Boy is written by Alberta Hawse and used by permission of Moody Press.
FEBRUARY 11 - MARCH 20

MOTHER OF AN ARMY

Catherine Booth (17 January 1829 – 4 October 1890) was the wife of the founder of The Salvation Army, William Booth. Because of her influence in the formation of The Salvation Army she was known as the 'Army Mother'.

Mother of an Army was written by Charles Ludwig and published by Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Copyright date- 1987.

ESTER REID'S AWAKENING

Esther Reid is a young lady whose mother owns a boarding house and is compelled to do what she thinks of as household drudgery and monotony. She grumbles and complains of her existence and is often sharp and cross with those around her yet thinks of herself as a Christian. When she visits her cousin where tragedy strikes, her eyes are opened as to how a Christian should be and her spirit is awakened to a new life in Christ.

Ester's Reid's Awakening is written by Isabella MacDonald Alden and was published by Creation House, copyright 1992.
NOVEMBER 24 - DECEMBER 31

IN THE ARENA

"In the Arena" continues the story of Isobel Kuhn. Christians are on display, like someone condemned to die in the arena. Isobel was convinced that the trials of her life are "arena experiences" and her most valuable lessons.

Isobel Kuhn (December 17, 1901 – March 20, 1957), was a Canadian Christian missionary to the Lisu people of Yunnan Province, China, and northern Thailand. She served with the China Inland Mission, along with her husband, John, as a Bible translator, church planter, Bible teacher and authored nine books about her experiences.

This story was published by Moody Press, 1958.
NOVEMBER 10 - 21

FATHER TO NOBODY'S CHILDREN

This story is of the life of Thomas J. Barnardo, a hero to the destitute and homeless of London's notorious East End. In 30 years, he and his co-workers rescued 60,000 children from the streets,
caring for them in rural orphanages and by the novel means known today as “foster parenting.”

Father to Nobody's Children is written by David E. Fessenden and published by Christian Literature Crusade.
OCTOBER 3 - NOVEMBER 7

THE DEEPENING STREAM

The dramatic and compelling story of a young newspaperman's search for meaning and purpose in a career that suddenly began to go sour. Neil Abbott found that God's ways are sometimes strange to human reasoning and "past finding out" until one allows himself to become part of the deepening stream.

Francena H. Arnold was a schoolteacher, talented storyteller, mother of four children, and author of ten novels. Her final novel, The Deepening Stream, was published in 1963 by Zondervan.

A 1973 obituary in the Moody Press Tips newsletter said: “In her own distinctive style, the author established a relationship with her readers through the conflicts, trials and complications of the characters. These are not just dramatic adventures, however, instead the accounts are realistic interpretations of the sufferings and joys of human nature and how Jesus Christ becomes the answer to loneliness and confusion.”
AUGUST 18 - SEPTEMBER 26

THE MAN OF THE HOUSE

This is a story about a boy who has to help support his mother and sister. Learning about Christ changes his viewpoint on life, helps him make better choices, and gives him hope in trying situations. The story is written by Isabella MacDonald Alden and published by Creation House, copyright 1993.

JULY 17 - AUGUST 15

BY SEARCHING

Isobel Kuhn was a Canadian missionary who worked in southern Yunnan province among the Lisu people before and during the second world war.

By Searching is published by Moody Press.

THE LEAST OF THESE MY BROTHERS

Harold Bell Wright wrote for his church members a fictional story, Practical Christianity, which he later retitled "That Printer of Udell's". This book of 29 chapters, published in 1903, was the first Wright novel to attack the hypocrisy of the church.

"That Printer of Udell's" was re-published by Bethany House with the title, "The Least of These My Brothers." It's edited by Michael R. Phillips.
