Titus: A Comrade of the Cross

By Florence Morse Kingsley

In 1894, a publisher held a writing competition to obtain the best manuscript that would strengthen a child’s faith in Christ and love for Christ. Titus: A Comrade of the Cross was the result. This fictional recounting of the life of Christ was so popular that, after six weeks, another 200,000 copies were produced by the publisher. Titus powerfully shows the love, mercy, and compassion of Jesus for sinners. In this story, you will find sadness and sorrow, but you will also find the power of Jesus at work to “heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound” (Isaiah 61:1).

Family Life
A Simple Guide to the Biblical Family

By Kevin Swanson

Timeless Christian Classics Series

By Various Authors

The 20th-century marked a time when most institutions in the Western world were de-Christianized. A recognition of God, the fear of God, the Scriptures, the centrality of Christ, and almost all remnants of the Christian faith were carefully expunged from schools, children’s media, and children’s literature like The Swiss Family Robinson and Heidi. Others, that were too overtly Christian were simply shelved and by and large forgotten (examples: The Pilgrim’s Progress and The Holy War by John Bunyan).

But there are still Christian families and churches living in the English-speaking world and they still want to read good Christian books. For the Generations team, we see this as the time to re-Christianize our literature, our school curriculum, and our media for our children.

To that end, we have re-published original children’s classics with the original Christian content – the content that was stripped from 20th-century publication, as well as some of the “forgotten” Christian classics from the past. We’re calling it The Timeless Christian Classics Series.

Here’s what we have re-published so far, with accompanying study guides for 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade levels.

“Good family reading time series. Keeps everyone riveted. Great parallels to man-made religious systems and their failures to know and obey God and how God chooses the foolish things of the world to bring to nothing those that are wise.” —Anon.

The Holy War

By John Bunyan

In The Holy War, John Bunyan masterfully presents the battle for the town of Mansoul (representing man) as Diabolus (Satan) wages war with Shaddai (God the Father), Emmanuel (Jesus Christ), and the Lord High Secretary (The Holy Spirit). It is an allegorical portrayal of the victory of Christ in saving sinners from the clutches of the devil. In this classic Christian work, Bunyan’s vivid depictions of battle remind the reader of the reality of spiritual forces warring for the soul.

Robinson Crusoe

By Daniel Defoe

As a young man, Robinson Crusoe dishonors his parents by running away to sea. He is enslaved in Africa, but manages to escape to Brazil. After years of sinful living, a storm destroys the slave ship on which he is sailing. He is the only survivor. Washed up on a tropical island, he lives there all by himself for almost thirty years.

Providentially, he is able to collect many useful supplies from the wreck of the ship. Taking dominion of the island, he makes a home in the wilderness. He grows his own food, raises his own livestock, and makes his own clothes and tools. But while he learns to provide for his material needs, he is still a slave to sin. Then in the midst of a terrible sickness, he finds forgiveness, redemption, and deliverance in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Originally published in 1832 by the American Sunday School Union, this is a short biography of one of the most important missionaries of the 19th century. It was written to encourage young people to dedicate their lives to the sacred work of serving the Lord Jesus Christ. As the later missionary C.T. Studd once said, “If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.”

Henry Martyn willingly gave up his life for the cause of Christ’s gospel in faraway lands. He spent years in India sharing the gospel with the people of that land, caring for the poor, and translating the Scriptures into the common tongue. As he journeyed back to England, he spent time in Persia, translating the New Testament into Persian for the first time, laying the foundation for modern missions in that land. In the providence of God, Martyn departed this life for glory after serving the Lord until age 31.

The Swiss Family Robinson

By Johann Wyss

Following a raging storm in the Pacific, a Swiss family is shipwrecked on a deserted island. Together, they labor to build a new Switzerland in a faraway place. As this Christian family builds a new home away from home, they learn that God is the all-merciful Provider of everything that mankind enjoys. God is the bountiful Creator who has made the things of this earth for the benefit of His creatures.

This new edition of The Swiss Family Robinson is revised from the popular W.H. Kingston translation. It includes additions from the original English translation of William Godwin. This new edition includes parts of Wyss’ original narrative that have often been removed from other editions. Wyss, as a pastor and a father, originally wrote this story to teach his boys the truths of the Christian faith. Many of these parts of the narrative have been restored in this edition.

American Faith

By Kevin Swanson with Joshua Schwisow, Daniel Noor, and Peter Bringe

History should never be boring because when we look at what is going on in the world, we are seeing the very works of God. While there are evil events and God’s judgment visits the nations again and again through the centuries, there are always redemptive events. The kingdom of Jesus Christ emerges here and there, and it is for us to take note of it and praise God for these amazing events.

This unique introduction to American history provides a survey of important events in American history, while digging deep into the real lives of the people who were there. Here you will find 27 vignettes of great American lives, all portraits of American faith. In God’s good providence, He uses men and women of the faith to accomplish remarkable things. America carved out liberties unlike many other nations, thanks to godly men and women. When we see instances of faith in these lives, it is for us to recognize them and point them out to our children. They are examples for us (Romans 15:4, 1 Corinthians 10:6), and we will do well to learn from them.

The 27 vignettes include John Winthrop, William Bradford, Jonathan Edwards, Phillis Wheatley, Patrick Henry, Noah Webster, Daniel Boone, John Quincy Adams, Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, Elisabeth Elliot, David Wilkerson, and others.
