Heroes make a positive difference in the world. They often inspire us with their courage and strength. Jean Vetter's book will encourage your group to think, discuss, and interact as they examine the lives of 32 famous heroes.
A brief biographical sketch of each hero is provided, followed by discussion questions on his or her qualities or achievements. A special section, "Taking Credit Where It's Due," provides participants the opportunity to relive some of their own finest moments. Group activities, such as role-playing and singing, are suggested as well. Each chapter closes with historical data about a critical year in each hero's life.
