The name St. Patrick is associated with Irish legend and modern holidays. But why is he really worth remembering? In this beautifully illustrated book, Simonetta Carr tells the inspiring story of how the wealthy, young Patrick was kidnapped from Britain, taken as a slave to the pagan island of Ireland, and found a way to escape. Yet, more importantly, we see how Patrick’s suffering as a slave opened his eyes to the mercy of God and prepared him to return to Ireland as a missionary. Getting to know the real Patrick of Ireland, young readers will learn that the joy of the Lord will sustain them through difficult times and strengthen them to share the gospel with others.
