This is a study guide for the book titled Blinded by the Shining Path, by Dave & Neta Jackson. In this book, 14-year-old Alfredo gets an assignment from the Shining Path guerrillas (the most violent Communist group in the world): Kill the pastor of the church.
There are 40 books in the TRAILBLAZER series. Each book focuses on the life of a Christian hero or a missionary. The books are classified as historical fiction because one or more fictional young people are included, but the information about the hero/missionary is true -- and there is a biographical section at the end of each book. The stories are suspenseful and engaging -- and readers learn about many Christian heroes and missionaries.
Blinded by the Shining Path is set in Peru in 1992; Romulo Saune is the Christian hero.
Each section of this guide contains vocabulary exercises, questions for discussion, and a reading activity. Extension activities and an answer key are also included.
