    One thought on “Crusade of Tears”

    1. This book about the Children's Crusades is gripping, and written in a haunting sort of manner. It is difficult reading in that it explains in detailed manner the trials of the children, and some brutal murders of these children. Though it may be troubling for some, I think stories like these are important for people to hear today.

    2. Desde que hace muchos años leí "Cruzada en jeans" de Thea Beckman, ese capítulo de la historia de las cruzadas me había interesado, aunque no encontré ningún libro sobre el tema que me llamara la atención. Hasta ahora. "Crusade of tears" es recomendable por muchas razones. Está escrito a la perfección, la documentación histórica que hay detrás del texto es abrumadora, el ritmo no decae y los personajes, lo mejor de todo, son inolvidables. Pero no puedo negar que me he sentido tentada [...]

    3. Despite being the first in a series, this book works really well as a stand-alone adventure. Sometimes sad and heartbreaking, this historical tale (loosely based on scarce historical sources) speaks of what true faith is all about. A Christian reading this book will find themselves reconsidering the basis of their faith, with questions at the end of the book further aiding this process. But this is not just a story for those who consider themselves Christians, it is a tale for all and could easi [...]

    4. Life's lessons & faith come from the journeyI very much enjoyed this book. The year: 735. The story of a Christian group of German children who journeyed to Palestime as Crusaders. A child's vision foretold that the children-crusaders' weapon of purity would defeat the Islamic infidels rather than continued bloody wars. A vagabond priest who became disgruntled with the way of the church happens upon the beginnings of the group & eventually joins them on their journey. The priest & th [...]

    5. The original edition is outstanding and lived for many years as my number one favorite book. I read it as A Journey of Souls. I later read through the second, modified edition and found it to be "dumbed down" a considerable amount, perhaps written for kids? It went from "pillars of the earth epic" to "dear america history" status in my mind. Much of what made it raw and gripping was softened and lost its power. I did not find the second edition worth reading in comparison to the first, utterly c [...]

    6. Very well done historical fiction of a point in history -- 1212 after the 4th crusade when bands of children from the north or Europe began walking to save the holy lands from the infidel -- at nearly 600 pages, longer than most books I read, but so enjoyable I didn't consider giving up at any point. I fell in love with the children and with the ancient roaming priest who loved each of them. Well done indeed.

    7. Tragedy and triumph are intermixed in this tale of the 13th century. It is a good telling of this journey of souls while they travel in an often hostile land in pursuit of their goal. Papa Peiter, an old priest, joins Wil, Karl, little Maria and other chilren in their travels. Together they endure hardship, joys, loss, and love.

    8. I wasn't quite prepared for the intense loss and struggle in the pages of this book and put it down several times only to begin again. These characters became real to me and their struggle broke my heart. I can only hope my faith would be as strong as theirs in the same situation. Not a light read if that is what you are looking for. This one made me do some soul searching.

    9. The Crusade of Tears is a book about children that were a part of the Crusades in around 1200 AD. It's a difficult journey. The beauty of the story is in the journey and all that the crusaders learn as they make their way to Palestine. It was time well spent.

    10. Loved the history of this book. Characters are well-developed. Horrible time to remember, great telling of it.
