    Many Christians have read, or at least heard about, the famous sermon by Jonathan Edwards that gave a vivid description of the torments of hell and urged listeners to receive salvation before they faced the agony that awaited the unrepentant. Given during the Great Awakening, this sermon has been regarded as both the greatest sermon ever and as a traditional "fire and brimstone" puritanical speech. The sermon is presented in its entirety here, along with other sermons and speeches from nine other influential Puritans of the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. Whole or parts of sermons are included for such figures as Thomas Shepard, Cotton Mather, John Cotton, John Winthrop, Increase Mather, Jonathan Mayhew, Thomas Hooker, Peter Bulkeley, and Samuel Willard. More than one sermon is given for some of the men, and many of the sermons have similar themes of hell, God's anger, and repentance. These sermons had a lasting impact on American Christianity and should be read for their historical value as well as for religious studies and spiritual exploration. 208 pgs, pb.

    This unique study/devotional book does a fine job of covering much of the Bible; it is packed full of 108 family-oriented Bible lessons from Genesis to Revelation. The author makes so much of the Bible accessible to even your young ones. The Old Testament section includes much of Genesis and Exodus and most familiar stories, as well as lessons on the kings and prophets. Most of the New Testament lessons are taken from the Gospels and Acts, but each other book
    is given one chapter. Begin each lesson with the provided questions to arouse interest and introduce the lesson theme. The retelling of a Biblical story follows.
    Choose to read the included Biblical story or the corresponding passage in your own Bible. The next section, entitled Things to Think About, provides open-ended questions for discussion. The devotional ends with Things to Pray About, which offers unscripted prayer suggestions. Each lesson concludes with Things to Do, an activity suggestion section. Here you will find general directions for varied activity options (crafts, serving, worship, etc.). In some cases, activities are geared to particular age groups and are identified as such. Many of the craft-type activities appeared to be more elementary-aged focused: make a people collage, make an advent chain, etc. However, since these activities are
    explained in general terms, you can easily tailor the activity to your own child's level. Many of these activities require supplies you would normally have around a home-school house. There are some activities that require supplies, such as
    "chalk talk" and flannel board suggestions, but these are optional. There are also unique suggestions that would be appropriate for a variety of ages such as singing and dancing to praise songs or thinking of a friend and planning a time to tell him about Jesus. This book would work as a more in-depth family devotional or as a Bible curriculum in the elementary years (no tests included). 595 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    "I want to become a Navy SEAL." Those words might rouse admiration, courage, trepidation and possibly disbelief. As a parent, how do you respond? Bravely, the author's father, after his initial disbelief, supported his son's dream by providing a mentor and training partner who later was brutally murdered in Iraq. This captivating story gives parents and teens a front and center seat in the journey from US Navy recruit training, SEAL training in BDU/S, Hell week, and multiple tours of duty with SEAL teams 1 and 7. Through his eyes, we see him experience grief at the loss of his mentor, battling with the party lifestyle, experiencing the horrors of war and the power of grace and salvation. While horrifying, the events experienced are written with discretion, making this an inspiring option for families to discover the true meaning of sacrifice: "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." 284 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Providing a solid foundational understanding of the providence of God in our nation's history, this one semester high school humanities course is an essential resource to solidify the Christian ideals of our young people as they prepare to enter the market place of ideas. Using Peter Marshall's popular books: The Light and the Glory, From Sea to Shining Sea, and Sounding Forth the Trumpet, as spine resources, this study covers American history from 1492-1860 with a specific focus on four major themes: Call, Covenant, Repentance, and the Leader as a Servant. Throughout this one semester study, students are also required to conduct a community based project putting these principles into practice.

    Beginning with an 18-week lesson guideline, this curriculum is organized in a clear, easy to use format. The three core books have been organized into sections (called parts), and each part has further been developed to offer introductions, learning objectives, continuing themes, key words and concepts, key people and places, video and audio recommendations, supplemental reading recommendations, activity suggestions, writing/Socratic seminar topics and research ideas. Time spent on each part varies from one day to one week.

    Let me share an example from Part 19 (expected to take 3 days). Students begin by reading chapters 10-11 in the book, "From Sea to Shining Sea". The introduction covers how inherently wrong slavery is from our modern perspective, as well as the perspective of the majority of Christians in the early 19th century. The objectives focus on understanding the history of slavery in America, understanding why slavery did not develop in the North as the South, the impact of slavery on every political debate in America, the incompatibility of slavery in light of our Declaration of Independence, the realistic picture of slavery and the picture of Christianity role in the lives of slaves and slave holders. Continuing themes focus on God's selection of individuals and His perfect timing as well as how power can blind even good-hearted individuals and the love of money. Key Words and Concepts along with Key People and Places are provided. A sampling of the recommendations for viewing, listening and reading include: Roots, The Great Civil War Debate (Rev. Peter Marshall vs. Rev. Steve Wilkins) among others in the viewing category; a link to listen to Negro spirituals; and several links to online resources to read. Writing/Socratic Seminar Topic suggestions are numerous. For example: "Explain the impact of the cotton gin; or Chapter 11 teaches us that the public was very aware of the realities of slavery, yet seemingly remained indifferent to it. Are there parallels today? How can you explain why we ignore them?" Additionally, five research ideas are presented. As you can see based on the scope of options available, families can chose to expand these areas, creating a more in-depth study or select from the options to create a well-rounded study.

    At the heart of this study is the Reflective Notebook (RN) students are required to create. Following the principle approach to education, this notebook is designed to train independent thinkers and writers and will contain class assignments and notes along with journal entries, reflection entries, and a place to process their learning and express opinions and feelings. While many of the activities are easy to incorporate at home, you may find some of the projects lend themselves to a group or co-op setting, making this a versatile study for many homeschool families.

    An expansive appendix offers beneficial resources including: a summary of dominant American values; suggestions for the reflective notebook; ideas/guidelines for the various projects including the covenant (social justice) project, American values multi-media project, American body biography project, viewing and reading guides; how to "read" art; final assessment ideas; supplemental reading lists organized by topic and time period; and additional teaching resources. Required for this study are the three spine books written by Peter Marshall, a spiral bound notebook (I would use a three ring binder for more versatility), highlighters, colored pencils/magic markers for map work, and butcher paper. Spiral. 240 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Women and men interested in women's roles in the church and at home would be well served by reading this book. The author does a great job of summarizing more recent theological arguments, with plenty of Biblical and cultural research, making the issue more accessible to Christians who haven't had theology training. Women in ministry are especially discussed, but many points are made that correspond to gender roles overall. The book first takes a look at the history of the church, showing the roles women played in the early years and how things developed to where they are today. Of course, the main verses that touch on women's roles are brought up and discussed, taking into consideration cultural differences and the Biblical story of women as a whole. With common sense and Scripture references, the author points out how women were certainly powerful and valuable leaders in the early church. The book shows how views about women and their roles have shifted over time and how different denominations have dealt with the issue. The author herself is the senior chaplain of a women's prison ministry, and she shares some of her experiences from that ministry in the book, as well as many notable historic events that changed the role of women in the church. Lastly, the book calls on women to rise up in the church and take their rightful place. With solid arguments to support an egalitarian viewpoint and reassurance for women who feel called by God to serve in a ministry, this is a to-the-point, engaging, Biblically-based discussion that people on both sides of the issue would benefit from reading. By Margaret English, 224 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
