Miracles and Martyrdom of Scotland
Bohemian Bravery is based on a true story about the first martyr at St. Andrews in Scotland. Though not all are called to endure the martyr’s doom at the stake, some are called to a daily living martyrdom of fighting down sorrow and living for others.
In his heart Paul Crawer hears the words, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for me?” His wholehearted response is, “Here I am! Send me!” This marks the beginning of this young physician’s quest to bring not only physical healing to Scotland, but the gospel and spiritual healing. Following in the steps of Huss and Jerome, Paul counts the cost, knowing full well the punishment he will be subjected to for “heresy.”
As the influence of Paul Crawer spreads throughout the land, many newly enlightened eyes glow with the truth of the gospel and are grateful to learn of the Savior’s redeeming love.
“One cannot die for Christ unless you are first living for Him; and living for Him is far more difficult than dying for Him.”
Originally written in 1875.
“This is a very inspiring story of the first protestant Missionary to Scotland. He was a medical doctor who saved many lives. At the same time he shared the gospel of Jesus Christ from the Bible with his patients. I highly recommend it.” — Jacquelyn Helmer of Kingston, New York
“I was so inspired by this book! Absolutely loved it. I’ve always enjoyed reading books about missionaries, and this one did not disappoint me. Especially since it is a true story!! I would recommend it to anybody!” — Rebekah Duncan of Georgetown, Tennessee

About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading for the family. The inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books show a child that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood, nor are they a substitute for faith in Christ. As we learn of perseverance, courage, loyalty, humility, these are qualities to emulate and pursue, but as children read in stories of others like them trying their best and falling short, they will powerfully learn their need for the gospel. Though life is often not easy, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.
Lamplighter books are carefully designed to draw children back to the Bible, to ensure that each story reflects the character of God. Often, key Scriptures are referenced so that they may be stored in a child’s heart. Lamplighter volumes are recognizable right away by their beautiful, high-quality bindings. But the other unique feature of a Lamplighter book, in contrast to other publications of the same title, is that the Lamplighter editions have been enhanced with helpful footnotes and woven with threads of Biblical truths that will be etched into an awakened moral conscience. These characteristics are what make our Lamplighter Collection so unique and highly valued.
