These books are not for
the faint of heart. If you are afraid
to have your children go beyond you mentally or spiritually in zeal for the Lord,
then you probably do not want them reading some of these books. Hopefully these books are the sort that will inspire kids and young people to "count
the cost" and esteem
"the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures
in Egypt..." and will challenge them to
think outside the usual boxes made by the publishers of educational
materials - both Christian and secular.
If the Lord's return for
His church is not as close as it would seem, we need a generation of Christian
young people that have been raised on something better than
Alcott and such worldly wastes. Children also need something to fill their minds
other than the usual T.V., videos, movies, social media, computer games, and the great, overwhelming cesspool of misinformation that has permeated everything.
Books like friends, There
are some "so-called" Christian homes today with books on the shelves
of the library that have no more business there than a rattlesnake crawling about
on the floor, or poison within the child's reach.
