Once a kidnapped slave baby, George Washington Carver found freedom in learning everything he could about the world around him.

Abe Lincoln had never set his sights on becoming president; after all, he'd grown up in a log cabin on the frontier and had hardly any formal schooling. But as the question of slavery threatened to destroy the United States, this self-taught lawyer with a sharp mind and passion for justice found himself at the center of the greatest debate the nation had ever faced (1809-1865). Paperback, 224 pages.

Dwight Eisenhower: Supreme Commander During WWII Ike directed US forces in Europe, eventually becoming supreme commander of Allied forces and leading the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe.

The six books in the Christian Heroes: Then & Now package contain:

With scarcely enough food or money for his own family, George Müller opened his heart and home. Sustained by God's provision, the Müller house became known as the "Breakfast Club" for thirty orphans, and grew to five large houses that ultimately over ten thousand children would call home. George Müller trusted God with a depth rarely seen. His faith and generosity set a standard for Christians of all generations (1805-1898). Paperback, 208 pages.

Amy Carmichael: Rescuer of Precious Gems Amy's life was marked by a simple, determined obedience to God, regardless of circumstances or consequences. Driven by love and compassion, and sustained by faith and determination, Amy Carmichael defied the cruel barriers of India's caste system.
