Christopher Columbus: Navigated by God
Would you trust God alone for your safety and embark on the most dangerous of sea voyages-not once but four times-in hopes of discovering distant lands and new people? In the 15th century, the race to find a new oceanic trade route to the Orient was as frenzied as our modern day race into outer space. Back home, the European nations were struggling for survival against foreign invaders and trying to hold on not only to their civilizations but more importantly to their faith. One brave man named Christopher Columbus took the challenge! Navigated by God recounts the amazing voyages of Columbus and how God transformed his life against the backdrop of the race to the New World. An ordinary man faced with insurmountable odds, Columbus rose from obscurity to fame and eventually was plunged back into the shadows in what can only be described as a divinely inspired expedition. Relive his incredible story retold as a novel sure to capture any child's imagination. Using Columbus' own journals and Book of Prophesies, Navigated by God shows how truly important Columbus' faith was to him and how he struggled with many of the sins we all commit. Navigated by God will give you a new appreciation and perspective on Columbus not captured in any other children's book.
