Star of Light is an excellent reminder of how we ought to show the love of Jesus to others - by our actions, not just our words. What a powerful, practical illustration of the Gospel! I loved this book and intend to read more by Patricia St. John. The item itself was shipped promptly and was in wonderful condition when it arrived. Thank you!
5 of the 6 books we purchased by Patricia M. St.John were Revised by Mary Mills; the 6th was not revised; were wonderful reading for the whole family... They Were: WHERE THE RIVER BEGINS STAR OF LIGHT THE SECRET AT PHEASANT COTTAGE RAINBOW GARDEN THE TANGLEWOODS' SECRET TREASURES OF THE SNOW Each one is full of Valuable Vingettes of Solid Principles For Christian Living, Simple Yet Profoundly Written, Making them Easily Applicable To Every Aged Reader !!! THANKS PATRICIA M. ST.JOHN, MARY MILLS AND MOODY PRESS...GOD BLESS!! Walt Stewart
This is a wonderful story, filled with details of life in Morocco and the loveliness of shining the gospel light in a dark place. But it is disappointing that Patricia St. John's delightful writing has been revised at all. I prefer the original text. Nevertheless, new readers will love the story of big brother Hamid and the missionary nurse who rescues his little sister.
This book deeply affected my 8-yr old daughter this summer. She said it helped her truly understand what it means to be a Christian. Patricia St John does a fabulous job illustrating, first through fictional situations, then through the character's gentle explanations of how Christ's love can change us & save us. Put so simply & beautifully. I was impressed & humbled at the same time.
