Boy Centurions


Available in Glossy paper cover and Hard Cover.

Brian Hogan. Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, Brian has since lived all over the planet. From Navajo Land in Arizona to the far-flung steppes of Mongolia, the Hogans’ had more than thirty homes on five continents.

Brian enjoys history and climbing out as far as he can on the branches of his family tree. The boys in this book were all found on those long and thick branches.
Traveling extensively, Brian speaks all over the world and teaches young people to live and work in cultures very different from those they grew up in. He is passionate to let every nation know about God’s open invitation to join His family.
Brian is the author of two other books favored by readers young and old. There’s a Sheep in My Bathtub–the story of the Hogans’ Mongolian adventures, and An A to Z of Near Death Adventures–twenty-six true tales of the author’s close calls and brushes with death around the world.
These days Brian and his wife Louise make their home with a flock of backyard chickens in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas.
Helen Looman. Raised in the tiny town of Fraser, Colorado (400 residents at the time), Helen has lived in such varied places as New York City; Salmon, Idaho; Desamparados, Costa Rica; and Dambadarjav, Outer Mongolia. In Mongolia she homeschooled missionary kids from Kindergarten to eighth grade and taught English as a second language to ages four through seventy. Helen was also helped begin the first Christian Women’s meetings in Mongolia, that eventually became Women’s AGLOW Mongolia. She returned to the United States in 1996, where she currently resides with her husband and dogs in Southwest Colorado. Helen’s many travels to Europe, Asia and the Middle East, has given her a deep love and appreciation of historical time and place, which made working on this book a thorough delight.

    “Children wish fathers looked but with their eyes; fathers that children with their judgment looked; and either may be wrong. . . . Men from children nothing differ. And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.” William Shakespeare (proud to be included in this fine book)

    “Thank you for the book Boy Centurions. Daddy read it on the airplane and I read the whole thing last weekend. I liked everything in the book, especially the stories about America. Tell me when you write another book.”
    from Josiah (Plymouth, England, UK)

      You may not remember me but I remember you fondly.
      Thanks so much for your kind words about my book. I am so pleased that you enjoyed it.
      I have written a new one. Life in the Saddle is the semi-autobiography of Davie Hogan a pioneer church planter and missionary to Cherokee on the American frontier in the 1800s. I think you would like it though it is no written for a kid audience like oh Centurions was. Anyway, you can check it out on or Amazon. Amazon may be cheaper for the UK as far as shipping.
      Much love
      Your Uncle Brian
