“Titus: Comrade of the Cross” is another book that probably should be read as a family unless your child is older. Titus is not graphic, but there are some distressing events, cruelty, illness, and death that you might want to discuss with your children as you read.
In 1894 the publisher of this book rewarded Florence Kingsley with $1,000 for writing a story that would set a child’s heart on fire for Jesus Christ. Titus is a historical fiction set in the days of Christ’s ministry. The characters in the Bible come alive as you read through the pages, and Christ becomes so real; you feel as though you are walking the streets with this loving carpenter, his disciples, and the boy Titus. As you continue to read, you faith grows when you encounter Christ the healer, the friend, the Savior, and King. Titus has a surprise ending that is good but sad. You need a box of tissues for this one….. especially at the end. ~Anne
