Hero of Faith Series


From Cheryl Swope | May 13, 2019 | Faith, Teaching Resources

Looking for a good summer series? My daughter Michelle enjoyed these CPH books throughout her childhood. She recently reviewed three books from the series of eight.

Michelle begins with one of her favorite personal heroes, C. F. W. Walther, whose DVD biography and soundtrack she enjoys immensely.

Hero of Faith Series: C.F.W. Walther
“Walther was always sickly from a young man to an old man bent and grey. He followed his Lord, and when he married his wife in turn followed him. Walther preached what he taught and sailed to America in 1839. This book tells his story and is more heady, meaning more thinking is required, than some of the others in the series. I myself read it when I was 8 years old and thought it a bit too much, but I’d venture that children 9, 10, and older will enjoy it.”

Hero of Faith Series: Dorothea Craemer
“This is the story of a brave young lady who left home and country of Germany to the deep unknown of the United States. She cared for people along her journey, and a pastor noticed. He asked her to marry him. She spent her days cooking, cleaning, and nursing while following her Lord in prayer. It is fitting that this Christian woman left this earth to go to God in such a manner as kneeling in prayer by her bed. Very highly recommended.”

Hero of Faith Series: Martin Luther
“Martin Luther started life with a strict family and a burdened conscience. When a storm came up while traveling he swore his life to God. This book may seem childish at times, like the idea of bringing him here from the past, but it conveys the story and makes it rather enjoyable. Suitable for younger children.”

Find the entire series from Concordia Publishing House.
