Friends and Heroes Curriculum
Adventures and Values
Based in a fascinating and turbulent period of history, 69-71 AD, Friends and Heroes places Bible stories in a vivid historical context. It uses animated adventure stories to introduce a new generation of children, to the stories of the Old and New Testaments in an appealing, fresh and memorable way. Children love the stories: “Friends and Heroes rocks!” said one recent e-mail. Boys are strongly attracted by the central male characters, the danger and the exciting action! This approach – of setting Bible stories in living context among the people who kept them alive, by passing them on ‘down the line’ to children – runs throughout the series as a constant motif.
Friends and Heroes is the tale of two young people – Macky and Portia – whose idealism and friendship leads them across the ancient world, from the fabled Egyptian port of Alexandria, to the besieged city of Jerusalem and finally, to the very heart of the Empire: Rome. As they fight for justice and even survival against the might of the Roman Empire, they become friends and then, in turn, heroes. Like our heroes, children will be empowered by what they see and hear, as they share the courage and compassion, the everyday dangers faced by Macky and his friends.
