    Now there's no reason to wait until your student is in 3rd grade. Bible Heroes is an excellent language arts bridge from IEW's Primary Arts of Language to their theme-based writing lessons. Or you might decide to use it as a new entry point for the IEW program (as you finish your favorite phonics/reading program). Either way, I think you will be very pleased with what this program supplies – lessons that not only provide instruction in writing with structure and style (as the name implies), but also introductory grammar and Bible. The 27 lessons cover IEW Unit 1 (two lessons teaching Key Word Outlines), Unit 2 (seven lessons on Writing from KWOs), Unit 3 (twelve lessons on Summarizing Narrative Stories), Unit 4 (three lessons on Summarizing References), Unit 5 (three lessons on Writing From Pictures), and Unit 7 (one lesson on Creative Writing) The approach is solidly multi-sensory. Lessons include verbal and written activities as well as games for reinforcement and all source material is taken from the Bible. Although the target audience for this course is 1st-2nd grade, material can be adapted for up to 5th grade.

    The consumable Student Book provides instructions which are to be read to the student, additional gray boxes that have notes to the teacher, and space for students to complete lessons and writing assignments. Appendices include: styles helps, game pieces (cardstock), and vocabulary cards (also cardstock).

    Purchasers of this course have access to two free downloads from the IEW website. One of the downloads is the Student Resource Notebook (also available for purchase in hard copy format). It provides supplementary and reference material needed by the student. The other download is the Bible Heroes Teacher's E-book; this Teacher's Manual is a vital part of the course and its use is expected. It provides more detailed instructions for each lesson, a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussion of each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming pages, instruction for games and activities, copies of checklists, and copies of game boards. ~ Janice

    It seems I'm part of a growing number of people who prefer to purchase a hardcopy book rather than rely on downloading and printing. If you're with me, you'll be glad to know that IEW has started publishing this notebook (long available as a free download to those who have purchased their courses). Used as a resource for all of their theme-based writing lessons, it's also a good reference for any student using the IEW method of writing. Included are reference pages for stylistic techniques, models of structure, strong verbs, -ly words, quality adjectives, five senses/emotions, decorations, transitional words/phrases, grammar rules, and charts/checklists. Spiral-bound with updated layout for 2016. ~ Janice

    This program can be used for Levels A, B or C. 30 lessons are included in a spiral-bound book with ready-made lesson plans, Scripture used as a subject for writing, and multi-level checklists. Each lesson provides a specific objective, at least two translations of Scripture, an assignment with checklists, and a space for the final copy to be written or pasted into the book, which creates a portfolio of the year's work. Checklists are provided for the three different levels. Sample compositions are plentiful, as well as vocabulary development and review exercises to strengthen understanding of stylistic techniques. The story of Noah forms the core of the first two units. Unit 3 focuses on sequencing and sources include the miracle at Cana, the parable of the talents, the story of Jonah, the Good Samaritan, and the Prodigal Son. Unit 4 lessons have students read and summarize Paul on Charity, Jesus' Miracles, Christ's Last Words, along with stylistic exercises taken from Psalms. Custom pictures have been created for Unit 5 lessons (Esther, Daniel, Nativity, Paul's conversion), and Unit 6 uses the synoptic gospels to teach multiple reference summarizing. With Unit 7, a few creative writing opportunities are suggested, and Unit 8 continues the five paragraph model with essays on Job's suffering, Christ's condemnation by Pilate, and the duties of a Christian. Unit 9 presents an analysis of the books of Ruth and Jonah, as well as the story of David and Goliath.

    The good news is that, as Christians, we know how the story turns out - we win! The bad news is that, as Christians, we often have trials, some very unpleasant, along the way. Trial and Triumph: Stories from Church History presents 46 gripping stories of brothers and sisters in Christ who stood firm in the face of bitter persecution. The brief four to five page biographies of such greats as Polycarp, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, William Carey and Hudson Taylor show what God can do through ordinary people who trust and obey Him. It is inspiring to read of these men and women who defied ungodly authority, whether in the church or in civil government, and stood on the Word of God.

    Polycarp was a leader in the early Christian church at Smyrna during a time of Roman persecution. When he was seized, Polycarp was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be fed to the lions; but he refused. He was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be burned at the stake; but he refused. As the flames were about to end his earthly life, he shouted out a prayer of praise to the Lord.

    Elizabeth was the beautiful daughter of the king of Hungary. She was filled with compassion for her people during a time of great famine. Against the wishes of the royal advisors, she emptied the grain bins and personally gave clothing and meals to the poor. After the death of her husband, Elizabeth was put out on the street. She continued to praise God for allowing her to serve the poor and began spinning wool to earn a living. When her father found out about her circumstances, he begged her to come back and share in his inheritance. But Elizabeth said that she had already received her inheritance from her Father in heaven, the eternal mercy of her Lord Jesus Christ. She served the poor until her death from a fever at age 24.

    This book is excellent material for family reading or individual inspiration. - Jerry

    This lovely book shares the story of the poor physician named Valentine who lived in ancient Rome and helped the sick of that city without thought of gain for himself. Valentine was a Christian at a time when persecution was high, but he nonetheless would pray to God to heal each of his patients. Eventually martyred for his faith, it is said that Valentine sent a short note to a young blind girl from his prison cell before his execution and her sight was restored. This book shares this legendary story in a simple and straightforward way. The unique thing about this book is the colorful mosaics that illustrate the story beautifully. Retold and illustrated by Robert Sabuda, 32 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

       This book is a true inspiration to love others and serve the poor in the areas and communities we are called to serve. Eighteen-year-old Katie Davis desired to live intentionally for Jesus Christ. She went on a mission trip to Uganda during her senior year in high school and fell in love with the country and the people.  After her high school graduation, she left her comfortable life and family in Tennessee and moved to the country of Uganda for good. Filled with stories of faith, courage, and obedience, this book will encourage and exhort you to live your life with a purpose. ~ Gina

    Teens and pre-teens today are inundated with action heroes that are dramatically illustrated and larger than life, so much so, that at times it may seem difficult to engage them in the stories found in the Bible. As parents, we want our children to be excited and eager to dive into the action heroes-the original and real-action heroes found in the Bible. Let's be honest, how many of our young people think of God as an Action Hero? Our young people become enthralled when Superman blows a car over with his breath, yet when you stop to consider God created the whole universe with his breath, who is the real Super Hero? Written to communicate Biblical Truth clearly and forcefully, the Action Bible contains over 200 fast-paced narratives in chronological order, making it easy to follow the historical flow of the Bible. Old Testament covers creation, fathers of the faith, the life of Joseph, Moses, Joshua, God's Judges, the Kings, the Prophets, and the Exiles, covering Genesis 1 through Malachi and including a brief look at the four hundred years between the OT and NT. The New Testament encompasses the birth and ministry of Jesus, Jesus' Final Days, the birth of the Church, the life of Paul and the final days of Revelation. Graphically illustrated. HC. 750 pgs. ~ Deanne

    As Christians in a Western world, we are not accustomed to the idea of persecution for our faith. People in many parts of the world do suffer for their beliefs, and sometimes it can be hard to fathom. Brother Andrew has written God's Smuggler as a description of what life in countries with religious persecution is like. This amazing man of God smuggled Bibles into many parts of the world to be a blessing to those unfortunate enough not to possess them. Now, in this distinctive book, Brother Andrew and John and Elizabeth Sherrill have combined other stories of persecution and travel to restrictive countries with Brother Andrew's book. Throughout the pages are scattered inserts of stories from such places as Columbia, China, Peru, Ethiopia, and Vietnam. These inserts fall into four different categories: A Traveler's Story, Diary of a Smuggler, Around the Globe, and Imagine This. A Traveler's Story contains personal testimonies of those people living in nations that persecute people for following Christ. Diary of a Smuggler boxes are written by people who have traveled to restrictive countries through Open Doors to encourage the people there. Around the Globe inserts provide brief statistics about religions in individual countries and a summation of what the Church is facing in those locations; Imagine This are questions at the end of the chapters that ask ethical questions or present scenarios with dilemmas that allow you to determine what you would do if placed in those circumstances. This book is great for motivating you in your faith and opening your eyes to the present situation of Christians around the world. 330 pgs, pb. – John

    Engage your children in discussions and activities that will give them confidence in the fact that they can read and understand the Bible for themselves. The three main topics looked at are the life of the Apostle Peter, friends, and young heroes. The three studies use short stories and retellings of Bible passages, along with questions, crosswords, pictures, stickers, and other means to explore various fundamental Bible truths. In Peter, we see a charismatic leader who God used in mighty ways – in ways He can also use us if we give our lives to Him. Through the study on friends, we will learn how to have a friend, how to keep friends, the kinds of friends to avoid, what to do when friends let you down, and about the one friend that will always be there. The last section looks at six heroes and heroines, as an example of the amazingly fruitful lives that can be lived when a person responds to God at an early age. Straightforward and clear, these studies can be used one-on-one, or in a group. A Sonlight book. 144 pgs, pb.~ Zach

       These thirty sketches (mini-biographies) describe Puritan and Covenant (the Scottish equivalent) Christians whose beliefs were challenged and refined through persecution. They believed doctrines should be solely Bible-based and that church doctrine should remain free from the Crown’s influence. Christ and the Word alone should rule. The sketches are engaging, range from 4-8 pages, and include such heroes of the faith as John Owen, Richard Baxter, John Flavel, Thomas Cartwright, the Solway Martyrs, Alexander Henderson, Donald Cargill and John Robinson. A brief overview sets the historical context with a description of the two groups and the key monarchs during the 16th and 17th century. Includes periodic black and white pencil illustrations; 6x9”, sc, 223 pp. ~ Ruth

    The story of Brother Andrew, from his first pair of wooden shoes in his native Holland to the world-wide ministry which is still in operation today, is an incredible journey of faith. Brother Andrew tells the story himself, and what a story it is! Taking Bibles and the Gospel to foreign countries can be challenging at the best of times, and the best of times it was not when Brother Andrew filled his car with Bibles and carried them to countries behind the "Iron Curtain." I guarantee that this will be one of the most amazing books you will read. ~ Zach
