John Harper: Titanic, the Ship of Dreams

$8.99 $7.25

The ship that would never be sunk, a ship of dreams – becomes a ship of nightmares as it is swallowed beneath the freezing Atlantic Ocean. Hit by a massive iceberg it was as much the arrogance of the ship’s owners and operators that caused the tragedy of the Titanic on 14th April 1912.

1,517 people perished that night but there was at least one man who was focused on saving souls amidst the horror. As the icy waters brought the life of John Harper to a close he still had the energy to call one final person to come to Christ. This is a story of tragedy but it is also a story of faith and courage and eternal hope.

Endorsements

“I purchased this book in, of all places, a Shoe shop for my son who had seen it and wanted it because he’d been hearing so much about Titanic at school and on TV. We are a Christian family but not really great readers. I was forced to read this book to my son every night! We are now going through the story for the third time. I wanted to write a review to say it’s a really gripping thrilling story for both a 31 year old father and his 5 year old son! Buy it read it learn from it and enjoy it! We have and still do.” — Owen McNeilly”

“I will be certainly ensuring the every child in my Sunday School class receives a copy of this book next year to mark to 100th anniversary of the ships sinking! Can we have more like this containing a good interesting historical theme please?” — Andrew Lazenby, Perth, Australia

“This book is brilliant and the publishers should be commended for having the foresight to publish it this year with so many ‘Titanic’ anniversaries coming up. The reader is challenged about their need of salvation almost from page 1 when Mr Harper seeks to point a rather snobbish and overbearing first class passenger to her need of Jesus as Saviour. Although the story (from an earthly standpoint) tragic it is also very challenging (and not just to children) about our daily walk with our Saviour as well as being prepared to take each opportunity to witness for Him. Yes children should be given Titanic – Ship of Dreams to read, as it will not only undoubtedly point them to their need of Jesus but also to walking with Him daily.” — John Dennison
