The Victor

By Patricia St. John
Level 7

In this excellent book, talented writer Patricia St. John tells the story of Philo, a Phoenician boy who seeks Jesus to heal his sister. I agree with a reviewer who wrote: “Jesus does not appear directly, but the whole air is full of His grace and presence and therefore a sure hope and redemption, you can almost touch it. A story of true forgiveness and salvation. This is another gem by Patricia St. John, a master story-teller. Every Christian youth should read this work.”

Note: this book was previously published under the title “The Runaway”
