POLYCARP OF SMYRNA: THE MAN WHOSE FAITH LASTED tells the story of a hero. He was a follower of Jesus Christ. He loved and served his Lord for over eighty years. And from the beginning to the end - his faith lasted. This large hardback book for children, from the pen of Sinclair Ferguson, is beautifully illustrated by Allison Brown. A wonderful start to a wonderful series that currently includes this, and two other titles, Ignatius of Antioch: The Man Who Faced Lions and Irenaeus of Lyons: The Man Who Wrote Books.

Review 1 for Polycarp of Smyrna: The Man Whos Faith Lasted
All Ages: Although written for kids, and I'll be adding this book into our kids' church library - I believe adults can learn a lot as well. The author seems as if he sits in our living room while telling us the story.
Without Fluff: It's quite a faith builder and with substance. The author approaches persecution without gory detail. Pictures with this book and other books in this series (that I have read) do not show gory detail. Author distinguishes between known facts & possible know facts & gives perspective of the era.
An added plus: Salvation plan is clear.
This book is being added into our 8-12 year old church library selection.
