Vision Forum runs a lot of sales, and I don’t tell you about every single one, but I do want to mention this one because we love these books.
Save 50% on Any 3 or More Ballantyne Christian Adventure Classics (ends midnight, April 20)
Ballantyne’s books are filled with shipwrecks, polar bears, Viking expeditions, pirate attacks, Eskimo encounters, the deep jungles of Africa and South America, gold mines, dangerous savages, and many other heart-pounding, page-turning adventures. But though his tales featured earthly adventures and conquests, they were also self-consciously and vigorously Christian.
Not sure where to start? I’ve got you covered. I asked a few of the girls for recommendations.
The Coral Island – A classic. Lord of the Flies was written in response to this from an evolutionary view, arguing that children left to themselves would not conduct themselves in such a civilized way.
The Gorilla Hunters – The sequel to Coral Island, but also very good as a standalone.
The Lonely Island – Dark, but good. A favorite of both Lydia and Megan.
Martin Rattler – Lydia’s second favorite.
The Dog Crusoe and His Master – Deanna’s favorite.
Blue Lights – Megan’s very favorite.
Red Rooney – Megan’s favorite, second only to Blue lights
Fighting the Flames – Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned story about firefighters?
