      I read this in little over an hour. It's a nice little book filled with a wonderful message about refusing to renounce your faith even if it means your own life will be sacrificed. While I wished I could have seen more the the background and story of the characters, it was still a well rounded book and a nice, easy read.Once again, Lamplighter Publishing provides a clean, adventurous story the entire family can love and learn from. I don't have to worry about the subject matter or look up review [...]

      This was an audiobook we had to listen to for school - we listened to it in two sittings when it was supposed to last us two weeks. XD It kept all three of us interested, and we didn't want to stop. Recommended!

      Listened to the audio in the car on our way up to Medieval Times. We all rated it 5 stars.b 3/18/16Perfect week to listen to this story about loving your neighbor as yourself. Our memory verse in CBS this week was from Matthew 22:37-39 "And he said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first command. And a second is like it; you shall love your neighbor as yourself.'".b 3/18/16

      I actually didn't read this. I listened to the dramatized edition put out by the Lamplighter Theatre.

      Listened to the audio drama for school. I decided to read the original book too. The audio version is better :)

      July 20th finished The Captive by Christoph von Schmid. This book from the nineteenth century is eminently wholesome, as most of the Lamplighter books are. The story follows a boy who is taken as a galley slave, and eventually escapes his master. He falls in with some Muslims and manages to convert most of the family. One member is very angry at this, and tries to kill the “infidel” as he calls him, but the boy escapes with the mother and sister of the family and he ends up killing his own f [...]

      The Captive is a great story based on a young boy named Anselmo who was traveling home from his university when pirates grabbed him and threw him on their ship and sold him as a slave. He was bought by a merchant for 10 pieces of silver and sold to a turk for 100 pieces of gold. Anselmo tries to share his faith with the turk family and saves their daughter from a lion. They want to repay him by making him like their son but he must take on their religion. What will he do? You must read the book [...]

      Another in the wonderous Rare Collector's Series by Lamplighter Publishing. This is the story of a young Christian boy who is kidnapped and sold to a rich Muslim family. This account is powerful and gripping. He struggles with his desire for freedom and his desire to serve his Lord even in captivity. A wonderful book about trusting God when things don't seem to be going your way. A great story!
