The great old Bible stories are retold in their lives as they experience similar suffering, persecution, misunderstanding, and troubles as the characters in the stories.

The Great Depression began with the Wall Street Crash in October 1929. The stock market crash marked the beginning of a decade of high unemployment, poverty, low profits, deflation, plunging farm incomes, and lost opportunities for economic growth as well as for personal advancement.

Christian based historical fiction for ages 12 and up. It's the 1920's and the prosperity seems as if it will never end. Then, suddenly, the stock market crashes and the banks close, followed by strong winds called the Dust Bowl. Soon the Matthew's family farm will no longer produce, and the bankers foreclose on it, leaving them nowhere to live except their old car. Paul, who is fourteen, has heard that the bankers actually cheated them out of their farm, and he wants revenge. Mary, thirteen, wonders why they are going through such severe trials, since they are Christians who have tried to serve God. Slowly they make their way westward, where their father hopes to find work. On the way they must stay in smelly transient camps, and encounter thieves, deceivers, and even religious hypocrites. They have never had such a severe test of faith - and many times they wonder what God is doing in their lives. OTHER BOOKS BY THE SAME AUTHOR INCLUDE: DISGUISED FOR LOVE: THE STRICKLAND SISTERS, LEMUEL: WITCHCRAFT'S SEDUCING POWER AND OTHERS.

What a truly great book about God's word becoming alive and active and sharper than a two edge sword in the lives of a Christian family who lost everything but their car, their cohesiveness, and their faith during the Depression. The great old Bible stories are retold in their lives as they experience similar suffering, persecution, misunderstanding, and troubles as the characters in the stories. The parents interpret to their children what the Bible has to say about obedience, forgiveness, patience, perseverance, and love as they encounter hardship and treachery. This is not a simplistic "Christian good/non-believer bad" story since the family encounters among professed believers their share of self-righteous hypocrites, a self-centered prosperity minister, as well as just those of little faith. Lack-luster religion only stands as contrast to the true faith of the people who know what it really means to have a relationship with Christ and not be afraid to live their beliefs. I read this book through tears, not at the family's hardship, since it was endured and learned from through faith, trust, and the joy of salvation, but from the sheer beauty of God's Word made manifest in their lives. One could see how God used the Great Depression to grow the strength of the Greatest Generation who would soon fight victoriously against the forces of evil--spiritual as well as physical--in WWII. I checked to see what other books were available from this author, but was heartbroken to find none. I consider it a great privilege and blessing to have had the opportunity to read this book.

Christians and Non- Christians should read this book. We have the Bible for the ultimate guide line for how we practice Christianity. The characters in this book put feet to their faith. Every person they came in contact with they tried to help even though they didn't hardly have two nickels to rub together themselves. This book a great inspiration!!!!

Book Review: Journey in the Great Depression, 2001, by John Lifflander, 150 pages, $ 99 cents on Kindle. Date of review: Sept 25, 2012
This story started out almost identical to John Steinbeck's novel, "The Grapes of Wrath". In it the Matthews family find themselves leaving behind a farmhouse foreclosed on by the bank, and they are now headed west to seek promised employment in California, which they never reach. On the way they encounter all the problems of the Biblical character Job, and how they confront, manage, and deal with each and every event. It was most descriptive of having to live under a tent, of having to accept food from strangers, and of trying to hang onto their Christian faith, as the journey become ever increasingly more difficult. Although it was top heavy with scripture it, nonetheless, made me remember when my own family was forced to live in a tent at the base of Table Mountain, outside Oroville, California in the 1940s, and how our own family struggled just to survive. I remembered how my own dad, like Jim Matthews, was forced to fix his own flats, make his own vehicle repairs on the side of the road, or inside some barn, and learn (on the fly) how to be his own mechanical genius. It described how two boys with not a penny to their name made their own toys using castaway junk. Most of all it reminded me of just how rich people can become in character even when they haven't a dollar extra to spend, yet have enough to give to others - just like some of my childhood friends in Oroville learned to share, trust and co-depend on each other. In the middle of this book there was a most interesting stand against communism and socialism, for the sake of freedom. What separates this book from "The Grapes of Wrath" is Steinbeck deliberately leads his reader in the direction of trusting government, socialism and Communism whereas this book is all about trusting God (not government) and of the importance of knowing the scripture out of a need to survive. In that regard, this is a most timely book for our present day and age. This was a Christian novel that not only warmed my heart, but also encouraged my faith. During these hard economic times America would be well served if people would read books like this vs. being brainwashed by today's politically correct television. I downloaded the book yesterday and read all 150 pages in one day. I gave it a 5 star rating.

This children's historical fiction was very interesting and dealt with issues a child would face during the Great Depression. It dealt with character issues such as sharing and forgiveness, as well. Upper elementary students could read this, and it would hold the interest of middle-school students who do not have advanced reading skills. If I were still teaching, this would definitely be in my library!

Read this to my kids over the summer. We liked it a lot. It was a great tool to teach the kids about life during the Depression.

The book was predictable throughout, following a preset format characterizing ideal Christian behavior. There were some depictions of the common struggles of the Depression Era, but nothing surprising or particularly revealing from a historical standpoint. I would recommend this book for young people.

I truely enjoyed this book. The action kept me turning the pages until I reached the end. Although a bit heavy on the religious aspects I found the book a good discription of the times.
This is truly a very inspiring book!! If there's ever been a time when you wanted to give up, read about this family's devotion to God & where it leads them to in their most trying of times!! Very good book!!
