    In this powerful memoir, Elie Wiesel tells the story of his teenage years as a Jewish boy in Transylvania in the 1940s. With straightforward explanation of events and his own thoughts, Wiesel shares how restrictions against Jews slowly increased, how his family and friends were moved to a ghetto, how he was separated from his mother and sister and never saw them again, how he watched his father slowly change and die, and how he endured the horrors of Auschwitz. The explanations aren't terribly graphic, but you do get a realistic picture of the atrocities that were committed. Though the memoir itself has been around for more than forty years, this is a new translation by his wife, Marion Wiesel, who corrects some details and more accurately renders his testimony in English. Also includes a new preface and a copy of Wiesel's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. 120 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

Just when Eli thinks there may be something special about Jesus, he learns of his death and supposed resurrection. Torn between those who follow Jesus and others who hate him, Eli must search his heart and decide for himself who Jesus is. By Rebecca Martin, 198 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This gripping account of the holocaust is told from two perspectives - that of Helen Waterford, a German Jew; and Alfons Heck, a member of the Hitler Youth. Although very close in age and proximity, their heritages gave them vastly different experiences during World War II. Placing their remarkable stories side by side offers a radical testimony of life under Hitler's rule.

    When Adolf Hitler wrote his now-famous (or infamous?) work, most of the world did not give it much notice, or take his ideas very seriously. This was in the mid 1920's, while he became chairman of the relatively small German Worker's Party (later the Nazi party). At that point in time, nobody would have guessed that this man would be leader of a powerful country. He wrote his 694-page tome both to express his unsavory ideals and to remake himself, though writing, into the "savior" of Germany that he was coming to believe that he was. The book contained an autobiography of his life, an analysis of World War I, a critique of Marxism, his ideas on Aryan supremacy, a critique of Communism, and his hatred of Jews. If World War II and the Holocaust had never happened, we might look at his hefty but badly-written work filled with illogical arguments, rambling attempts to hide uneducated thought, sudden outbursts of angry speech, and deliberate attempts to "rewrite" the past as humorous. However, somehow this crazed megalomaniac was able to bring himself to power and put into action his vague, in-concrete ideals in a series of unthinkable atrocities that still haunt us today. Today, this book is valuable for remembrance of that time, to give us a unique perspective on what life was like in World War II - era Germany, and to help us remember the value of keeping alert for people like Hitler, who may seem harmless but could represent untold danger to the world. A Well Trained Mind recommended resource. - Jess

     Adapted and abridged by James Stuart Bell, Jr., this modern version of a classic novel tells the fictional tale of a proud Jew living in the first-century who becomes obsessed with bitterness and revenge against the Romans who are persecuting his people. As Judah Ben Hur struggles against his enemies in his own strength, he finds no ultimate peace and satisfaction. It is not until this man has a confrontation with Christ, and learns the power of mercy and forgiveness, that he then discovers true peace and redemption. Little wonder why this novel has become a beloved story and genuine classic. Readers won’t find any illustrations in this abridged novel, but who needs illustrations if the story is as good as this? 516 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Written by a Jewish Christian, Zola Levitt, this booklet provides perspective and explanation on the symbols and steps of Passover. In addition, the Jewish perspective clarifies Gentile interpretations of Communion and Easter. Relaying the components of the Passover meal as his father had directed it, Levitt evenly discusses the first Passover (from Exodus) and modern celebrations and how these point to our Savior Jesus as the Passover lamb. While helping us connect with our Jewish neighbors, this booklet will expand and clarify our understanding of a key event in biblical history and the Christian faith. ~ Ruth

    Set in Poland during World War II, this book portrays the courage and hope of a young boy persecuted because of his Jewish heritage (though not a Jew), and separated from his father. It is also a story about the coming of age of a young man as he faces dangers and struggles for survival in his war-torn country. My girls all really enjoyed this inspiring tale of a young person with courage, conviction, and faith.

    Subtitled Biblical History for the Busy Christian, this 156 page book, written by John Shahan, MD, a practicing radiologist who also spends considerable time as a medical missionary in Central America, is not able to deliver fully on the title's promise. It took a lot more than one hour to get through the book as there's just too much material to cover, even condensed as it is. Aside from that, it does cover all the major events of the Old Testament from a historical perspective, acknowledging that the earliest part of the Bible has no other recorded documentation to substantiate it and is accepted on faith by Jews and Christians.

    The first four chapters cover the Old Testament, followed by a chapter covering the Greek and Roman historical influence, especially the major Greek philosophers and the military expansion of the Roman Empire. An epilogue and appendices round out the book. Though obviously not a theologian, Dr. Shahan does manage to go somewhat under the surface of the stories in an attempt to tie this ancient lore to present day points of view. ~ Tom

    Almost everyone knows that Jews and Arabs in the Middle East do not get along. This enlightening book shows the history and politics between the two peoples that is the cause of this unrest. Written by Tony McAleavy, the book is broken into two sections, the first highlighting the emergence of the Jewish state and showing where conflict originated, and the second describing important aspects of the conflict since 1967. The conflict today is summarized, and the Jews relationship to Palestine (from Biblical to modern times) is covered. The rise of Zionism, Hitler's effect on the situation, wars between the groups, peace agreements, the involvement of other nations, and so much more is covered. The coverage is mostly unbiased, with a slight sympathy for the Jews' position coming through occasionally. Background briefings are given, along with maps and plenty of photographs so readers will understand this long-standing clash. Text is formatted in double columns, with plenty of pictures on each page to illustrate the topic. Discussion questions are asked after each section, making sure readers get the main points of the information. Harder activity questions are also included occasionally, prompting readers to really dissect the information to gain a deeper understanding of the conflict. The book is straightforward and simple enough for younger students to comprehend the reasons behind the conflict, but also gives adults insights into the history and politics. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
