Here’s one review about this book, from Roger Greenway, the editor of Samuel Zwemer’s Islam and the Cross: Tales of Persia is a gem that I want my grandchildren to read. Much that we hear about Iran is frightening. Here we learn about another side–children, moms and dads, shepherds, sick people–and missionaries who take risks to bring healing and news about Jesus to Iranian people. The contagious love of God for Iranians shines through on every page.
- Tapestry of Grace families: Chronologically this fits into Unit 1, but understanding the challenges that missionaries face is one that did not change as time passed. Use for a read-aloud for 3 weeks.

This was one of our favorite Read-Alouds this year. My 9 year old loved hearing the stories of God at work in the lives of real people. She would beg me to keep reading!
