We did this as a read-aloud and I enjoyed it just as much as my boys 7-9 yrs. A beautiful story of a change of heart and following Christ; even the most unexpected hearts can change.

I enjoyed this book very much and had a difficult time putting it down. My middle school son enjoyed it, but not as much as I did.

We are learning about the greeks and roman Gods in history and this was a wonderful tie in on how persecution spread the gospel in Jesus’s day. I highly recommend this book. My children loved it.

We read this story as a recommended book with TGTB history. My children (3 boys) loved this action packed book! They could really relate to the character of Madoc and the difficult decisions he faced in his life. This book makes a wonderful addition to our library.


My daughter's favorite book of all time!

My daughter reads 2-3 books a week and she said this is the best book she has ever read! She wants my husband and I to read it so we can talk about it. A parent can’t ask for more than that!

Captured by Romans in the forests of Gaul, Madoc is sold as a slave to a Roman centurion stationed in Judea. Though he is not a hard master, Madoc is determined to escape and find his mother. However, the story takes a turn when Madoc and his master meet followers of Jesus and hear about the new way of living he taught. This story is not only engaging and packed with great messages, but it also teaches about the historical time period and the growing influence of the early Christian faith.
