    In typical, fascinating Usborne style, this updated volume takes readers on a whirlwind tour of 10,000 years of history, from the first farmers to the fall of the Roman Empire. Unlike many other books that focus on this time period, the focus is not only on the Greeks and Romans, but early civilizations from around the world are also represented, including the Hittites, Canaanites, the Hebrew kingdoms, Assyrians, Persians, the early Chinese, early Arab kingdoms, early North Americans, the people of ancient Peru, the Olmecs, the Celts, early African kingdoms, and many more. The focus is more on daily life than events of the time, and examples of housing, architecture, art, weapons, tombs, agriculture, and more are represented for each time period. Visual types will enjoy the cut-away views of structures so they can "see inside" houses and tombs of each civilization. A map and a list of important dates are also included for each civilization. Most pages also include a link to check out a related website that gives readers an opportunity to do things like hear how a Hittite would have said "hello" or play a game of Senet. An excellent resource for any study of ancient history. 96 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Author Nick Needham believes that there is great benefit for Christians who study God's works in the past. He states that "The mighty acts of Christ did not come to a halt soon after the events recorded in the book of Acts. In every century since the first, the Almighty has been at work…" Is that not immensely encouraging? In this book, Mr. Needham explores the church of the Middle Ages: the missionaries and theologians that God raised up, and the spiritual giants and earliest reformers who affected the course of history for God's glory. An academic book in scope, the style and language certainly help to keep this 460-page paperback within reach of the layman. ~ Zach

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.

    This book aims to increase Christians' knowledge of church history. It provides twelve weeks of study to build your understanding.

After an introduction, the book is broken into twelve chapters, each spanning a wide range of years. The chapters highlight key people and events, such as Emperor Nero, the Crusades, Francis of Assisi, John Wycliffe, the Gutenberg Bible, the Anabaptists, King James I, the Salem witch trials, Jonathan Edwards, Charles H. Spurgeon, C.S. Lewis, and many more. The book is full of information, yet very readable. Along the way, boxes provide names and terms you should know, web links, thought provoking questions, various facts, and quotes from past people. The back of the book contains a chapter-by-chapter study guide, with activities built on comprehension questions, small/large group discussion questions, prayers, worship ideas, and more.

    Journey back in time with this magnificent guide to the temple! Written by Episcopalian minister Robert Backhouse, this book covers the history of the Jewish Temple, from the early days of the Tent of Meeting to its present state of ruin. (All that currently remains is the Western Wall Herod the Great built to enclose his Temple area.) Many facts about temple rituals such as animal sacrifice and the various feasts and festivals are given. Explore the "vast complex of colonnades, courtyards and buildings" of the majestic temple with this unique pictorial guide. Nearly every page is illustrated with color photographs of an intricate temple model hand-constructed by Alec Garrard of Norfolk, England. This authentic model is based on information from the Bible, the Talmud, the Mishnah, Flavius Jesephus, and archeological discoveries. The model was built to a scale of 1: 100, and each handmade "brick" was baked in Mr. Garrard's own oven. This guide brings to life one of the Bible's grandest structures better than any book I've ever seen. No home or church library should be without it! ~ Rachel

    No early study of Judeo-Christian history would be complete without examination of the writings of Flavius Josephus. Apart from the Bible itself, his writings are the best historical source illuminating the biblical era and his presentation of some of the personalities in the New Testament is often more comprehensive. Including both the Jewish Antiquities and The Jewish War, this is a readable, chronological condensation of Josephus' writings accompanied by black and white photographs, charts, and maps. The author notes that nothing has been excluded that has "important intrinsic value or bearing on the Biblical account" and that the most pivotal passages have been presented word for word.

    Using her well-known talent for making complex topics clear and understandable, Dr. Beechick has provided us with another valuable and exciting resource for teaching. This book is riveting! In a sharp departure from her fabulous "how to teach" books, Dr. Beechick introduces us to an almost forgotten world in a fantastic work of historical fiction - combining the actual, historical truths revealed in scripture with various other sources to create a fluid, easy-to-read "walk" through early history. We journey from creation to the departure of Abram from Ur, through the eyes of the Old Testament authors. Hopefully, Dr. Beechick will continue in this vein in future books. 176 pgs.
