Overview

Introducing Menno Simons

Adriaen Wens was frightened-for his own life and for his mother’s. In 1543, many Christians in northeastern Europe were suffering cruel persecution, even execution, for following the beliefs of Menno Simons, the leader of a group called the Anabaptists. When Adriaen’s mother was arrested, he had to flee during the night with Menno, knowing that to stay in the city would mean his own arrest.

Soon after, Adriaen discovered there was a reward of a hundred gold pieces for the capture of Menno Simons. With so much gold, Adriaen could free his mother and rescue his family from the city! But could he turn in the underground church leader, even if it meant the man’s execution?

If Adriaen betrays the leader, his family will go free!

An adventure story, ideal for readers 8-12 years of age.

Editorial Reviews

Peter J. Dycky
Say “history” and many people yawn. Say “novel” and others think the book’s not true. But everyone loves a good story about real people and actual events touched with a dab of fantasy. I was about to ask the authors what was true and what was not, but their books have a page answering exactly that question. That is most helpful. Dave and Neta Jackson are masters in writing historical novels…for ages 8-12, though many adults can’t resist.
National Review
There’s no better way to introduce your 8 to 14 year olds to Christian heroes than through these exciting works of historical fiction. Each narrative brings today’s youngsters into close contact with a man or woman of faith as seen through the eyes of a child whose life intersects in a dramatic way with the famous Christian. The stories give accurate portrayals both of history and of the character of the Christian hero while holding kids captive to a tale of adventure.
