    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

    After reading a great story with my boys, they always ask, "Is it a true story, Dad?". How about the true story of a Christian man who was reluctant to enter the army due to his religious convictions, but ended up capturing 25 machine gun batteries, 132 enemy soldiers, and became the most decorated soldier of World War I?

    This dramatic story is told by Alvin York himself. He recounts his life as a boy growing up in a poor family in north-central Tennessee, his wild years, and his acceptance of Jesus as Lord and the resulting transformation of his life. His lack of formal education shows in the "as written in his journal" format of the book, but, none-the-less, his writing gives you the "you are there" feeling. This is particularly true in the recounting of the battle in the Argonne Forest in France. Although this battle brought him fame, his humility also shows through; in fact, the official army account of the battle is also provided to show what a feat Sgt. York accomplished.

    After reading this book, our family traveled to Sgt. York's home-museum in Tennessee to see firsthand the things we read about. For Father's Day, my wife and boys also bought me the movie Sergeant York starring Gary Cooper. In case you haven't figured it out, we love this book! ~ Jerry

    Sometimes we take it for granted. Sometimes we don't know how to go about it. But as Christian parents, our most important task is to make sure that our children have a saving faith in Jesus Christ. The husband/wife team of Robert and Bobbie Wolgemuth, parents of two daughters, author this book to help you in this essential task. You don't have to be a Bible scholar to use it. The small format book has seven chapters of 10 to 15 pages each. Chapters cover why we need a savior, who God is, what sin is, the resurrection of Jesus, salvation, trust and obeying Jesus, and growing spiritually after we make our commitment. Most of the book is a guide for the parent, but each chapter includes a short story to be read to a child. The included CD contains seven songs that correspond to the seven chapters in the book; children accompanied by an orchestra sing classic hymns on this high-quality recording. Appendices include the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and lyrics to the hymns on the CD.

    So when should you start? That depends on the child and his readiness, but it doesn't get much easier than this to pass along God's truth to your children. hc, 107 pgs.

    This book on family relations and husband and wife roles is the joint effort of Grace and Wendell (Rob) Robley. Rob and Grace teach and minister to families as a husband/wife team. It was that ministry that provided the material for this book. The cover of the book looks like it came right out of Leave It to Beaver, so you might expect a "husband is always in charge of the wife" attitude, but the Robley's take the attitude of equality under God. In the Holy Spirit of equality, Grace and Rob each write a chapter on four topics: God's Plan for Husbands and Wives; Charismatic Relationships; Charismatic Confrontations; and Charismatic Redemption. This small-format book has about 130 pages of meat in it, so it won't take long to read. But lengthy discussion is possible after reading each pair of chapters, as the book also contains a few "Searching Questions" such as "Is there favoritism in your family?" The practical advice, Bible references, and requests for the leading of the Holy Spirit should help you in your family's walk with the Lord. sc, 157 pgs.

    While new homeschool curriculums crop up fairly often for history, science and language arts, it's a rarity that a new homeschool health program is developed! Author Michele Spadafora has done an incredible job in pulling together this easy-to-use, thoroughly Christian P.E. and nutrition course that incorporates weekly lessons in "faith, fitness and fuel." It's an 18-week course that includes three segments on each of those "building blocks" per week, with tests included after every 3rd or 4th week and lots of helpful and inspiring video content as well. Scheduling works most naturally if you do health three days per week for one semester. Each week includes three topical reading segments (each about two pages in length), questions for the student, space to write goals for all three areas for the week, and space to journal about the week. "Faith" reading assignments focus on a biblical message, typically a goal that we could all work towards in our relationship with the Lord. These include: giving God control, replacing stress with peace, prayer, worship, loving others, serving others, making disciples, and more. Scripture references are sprinkled throughout the text, and several questions typically follow the reading. "Fitness" readings focus on the practical and include the benefits of exercising, frequency of exercising, warm-ups and cool-downs, proper form, weight loss basics, core strength, exercise gear, etc. "Fuel" readings focus on nutrition, like eating portions and proportions, understanding food labels, the importance of breakfast, avoiding sugar, the importance of whole grains, eating healthy snacks, avoiding diet mistakes, understanding eating disorders, and more. Readings on fitness and fuel typically do not have questions for the student, but are always followed by a space to write a goal for the week. The tests are fairly short and made up entirely of multiple-choice questions (an answer key for these is included at the end of the book).

    The video content is one of my favorite aspects of the program. It not only allows the author to "talk to" the student via video, but it also provides a way to demonstrate proper exercise form, workout ideas, or cooking technique. There are 32 short videos that complement the content in the book, and prompts to view them are found at the end of the readings. Students are also directed to several "Burst" videos throughout the program. These videos are about ten minutes in length and, just like the name suggests, these offer short energetic workouts to get the blood pumping. These are also found on the author's website. A DVD is also included with the book which features three full-body workouts, each about a ½-hour in length. The workout routines are fast-moving, yet simple enough to follow along with and feature upbeat Christian music from a variety of contemporary Christian artists. No fancy gear is required; while exercise bands make an appearance in several of the workout videos, and weights and exercise balls are discussed in the book, most fitness routines do not require any equipment. Whether you use the routines included or your own fitness program, the student is asked to work out at least three times a week, outside of specific assignments from the book.

    This easy-to-implement program would be perfect to do together as a family. The readings are fairly short and easy for students at different ability levels to understand. Technical details on nutrition and fitness are kept to a minimum, and the fitness routines and exercises will appeal equally to girls and boys. Compared to a full-year health course, you won't find nearly as much content on the human body or physiology here; the emphasis is truly on practical knowledge and motivation to stay fit. It would make sense to incorporate the nutritional information into the whole family's diet as well. The text is designed as a consumable, but if your students all write in their own journals or notebooks, you could use the text as a family. Christian families will especially appreciate the emphasis on building your faith while you build your physical endurance. 171 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Teri and Steve Maxwell had been homeschooling for 12 years when the Lord brought them back to a textbook approach from what was for them a wilderness of following various homeschooling approaches and experimentation. For the next 11 years, they felt that it worked well – and that their homeschooling was under control. In this book they not only outline their reasons for loving a textbook approach to homeschooling but also show how that approach strengthens and solidifies their goals for all areas of their family’s life. For those who have used their organizational materials and for those who have been intrigued with their methods, this book will answer your questions as they present what they do, why they do it, and how they do it. Along the way they document the products they have used and liked and continue to use. Seventy pages of appendices provide lists of resources, their specific curriculum choices, years of their schedules for school, Fridays, and summers, and some for you (the purchaser of the book) to reproduce and use (planning day worksheet). 216 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    If you don't read this "prequel" to the Lord of the Rings trilogy you miss a lot of the little details throughout the adventures of Frodo and the fellowship of the ring. Without Bilbo's adventure, Frodo's never would have happened. This unabridged edition is 8" x 10" in size and has forty-eight, full-color, full-page, fantasy-style illustrations – including five lavish two-page spreads by artist Michael Hague. The illustrations alone make this a great book for younger readers, but the larger print also helps!

    Here is the 50th anniversary of J.R.R. Tolkien’s tale of the reluctant hero Farmer Giles. First published in 1949, this version shows the original (black line) illustrations by Pauline Baynes. It also includes (now published for the first time) the earliest written version of the story and Tolkien’s notes for a sequel. It was originally a tale Tolkien told his children. Set in the Thames valley in the distant past, when giants and dragons still lived, Farmer Giles was actually quite unheroic. Through good luck and the help of his dog, horse and a magic sword, he scares away a giant and tames the wily dragon to become a rich hero. If you have the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings books, add one more classic Tolkien tale to your collection! 127pp, hc. ~ Sara

    For a more in-depth course in poetic appreciation and understanding, turn to these units which contain and analyze some of the best poetry from the late Middle Ages through the 19th (Classical) or early 20th (Traditional) century. The poems used are printed right in the loose-leaf text and include works from such notable authors as William Shakespeare, John Keats, Christopher Marlowe, John Donne, John Milton, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and others. Both units begin with a study of "The Ballad", though more attention is given to this form in the Traditional Poetry unit, which also contains a Nursery Rhymes section. The basic organization of Classical Poetry is by "Age" (Elizabethan, Seventeenth Century, Restoration and Eighteenth Century, Romantic, Victorian, and Nineteenth Century) with a discussion about that era and the style of poetry characterizing it. Biographical information about each poet is included, along with a blackline "portrait." After the first two units in Traditional Poetry, that book is organized by poet and also includes biographical information and a portrait for each. Activities follow the poetry. These range from interpretational to a study of poetic devices and are very well-contrived, with ample explanation and background information. Concluding each unit are activities for essay and discussion centering around themes in the poems or asking students to compare or contrast aspects of two or more of the poems. These are excellent units; my only quibble is the lack of a teacher key to evaluate student responses. If you do this study along with your child, this shouldn't be much of a deterrent.
