Over sixteen hundred years ago, God raised up a man named Patrick to take the gospel of Christ to the people of Ireland. Seldom in church history has any missionary been blessed with a more fruitful ministry. The preaching of Patrick was used by Almighty God to transform many of the Irish people from idol worshiping pagans into servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. The biography entitled The Life and Legacy of Saint Patrick seeks to vividly portray the true story of this faithful missionary, and to encourage Christians living in the twenty-first century to follow the Great Commission of Christ: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." (Matthew 28:19)
This new fully illustrated biography on the life of Saint Patrick is written in a lively and engaging manner, and will help readers to better understand how God's grace enabled one man to accomplish so much for the kingdom of Christ.
This 160-page softbound book, which includes 13 full color photos and 21 black and white illustrations, is recommended for ages 11-16.
