Missionary books

We find missionary stories (and many Christian biographies in general) to be about the most profitable reading outside the Bible. We have been collecting titles for some time. Though the subjects are always imperfect people, there is much to be gained by the discerning reading of the example of those who attempted to seek first the kingdom of God (Matt 6:33). That’s what we are aiming for, and that is what we are aiming our children for.

One starting place is this booklet that you can find on our family website. It has a missionary story excerpt (a really good one!), plus the beginnings of a book list.

In addition to the titles listed in our PDF “Wonderful Missionary Books,” we are digging up links to older missionary books which you can read for free online! We hope that they are a blessing to you!

Here are some stirring Missionary Quotes on a site with lots of links and leads to missionary material. (We don’t share this brother’s KJV-only stance, but he has many profitable links.)

We hope to soon add links to more!

The Education Of Kings

Is there a Biblical pattern for education? In this book, Art Dappen discusses the difference between the world's educational goals and God's goals, and lays out an amazingly simple, yet incredibly effective, method for training children to have a true Biblical worldview. Taken from God's commandment for the preparation of Israel's kings, this method has been tried and proven by Art's family and many others across the U.S. and Mexico.
