Following Christ isn't always easy. You need faith, courage, patience, and love.
In Ablaze: Stories of Daring Teen Saints, Colleen Swaim looks at eight young souls who were set afire with the spirit and set free to live lives of extraordinary virtue. All became saints for the against-the-current, selfless heroism of their teen years.
Read how an Italian high school student inspired thousands as she faced cancer joyfully. Follow a new Christian as he marches to his death by fire after standing firm in his faith in the face of a wretched king. Lock arms with a young man and his crucifix as he dares brawling teens to throw the first stone.
We are all called to follow Christ in our own ways. This book will inflame your heart with vivid storytelling, saintly challenges, prayers, images, and more. Discover how you can set your world ablaze with love for the Lord!

I knew I'd enjoy Colleen Swaim's Ablaze: Stories of Daring Teen Saints just by the cover. (Yes, there's a saying about that.) It's contemporary and engaging without screaming "STORIEZ 4 TEENZ." Just like Coleen's writing.
