About Tales of the Defended Ones: Ben and Joseph lose their mothers, but find a family looking just for them. Antonio is rescued from what seems like a hopeless situation. Caitlyn dares to trust that truth will set her free. Jorani is delivered from slavery into the arms of grace. 
Follow these real-life stories as they take you on a journey to foreign places and extreme struggles. Travel through their challenges and see the hand of the great Storyweaver - our Defender God shielding and defending the defenseless in the amazing ways only he can.These are the tales of the ones left wounded and weak-ones made whole and strong . . .

These are the tales of the ones left wounded….

I enjoyed reading these stories of hope – they are kind of sad at first—some are very hard to read, but thanks to God, and the help of His called servants, Ben, Joseph, Antonio, Caitlyn and Jorani are rescued from what seemed to be hopeless situations. I cried when I read these stories, so you might want to keep a box of tissues close by as you read this.

TALES OF THE DEFENDED ONES is a great book to use for missions work with children, or social work classes for older children. There is a teacher’s guide available (I didn’t get that to review though). I recommend this book for church libraries, youth leaders and teachers. Great book. $8.99. 208 pages.
