    This unabridged Dover edition contains the complete English text (translated by Sir Thomas Heath) of the Elements, written by the famous Greek mathematician Euclid, plus a critical apparatus which analyzes each definition, postulate, and proposition in great detail. It encompasses almost 2500 years of mathematical and historical study, and though the material is fairly old, it's still considered by many to be the standard by which all other geometry texts are measured. The book is divided into sections, the first of which introduces the life and other works of Euclid, Greek and Islamic commentators,

    surviving manuscripts, translations, bases of Euclid's thoughts, and Books I and II of the

    Elements (which cover straight lines, intersection of lines, angles, triangles, parallelograms, etc.). It covers the basics of geometry while Books III to XIII (which are not included in this edition) expand upon the info and add details on the more complicated aspects of geometry. Hundreds of figures help illustrate the proofs and rules that are explained. Like many Dover editions, lots of text is crammed onto one page to make the book shorter and more affordable. No practice exercises or reviews are provided, but the rules of geometry are explained with examples in a very straightforward way. 432 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Here is one of the classic Christian worldview books, written by Francis Schaeffer, the founder of L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland. This book delves into a variety of subjects ( philosophy, religion, history, art and music), discussing different viewpoints but arguing for the Biblical viewpoint. In an article on teaching worldviews (Practical Home Schooling, Sep/Oct 1996), Cathy Duffy says that she uses this book to review and tie ideas together after discussing a topic. However, she warns not to just turn a high school student loose with the book, since the student would not have the necessary background to understand it. A great resource to teach a Christian worldview.

    This classic work by Marcus Aurelius, the Roman philosopher and emperor, provides a "manual" for living a virtuous life. Aurelius gives insight and advice on everything from dealing with adversity and interacting with others to coming to terms with life and death. This manual is divided into eleven books (some with themes, such as Debts and Lessons), with each book containing plenty of maxims, sayings, musings, and reflections. Some of the musings are brief (one or two sentences), while others are several paragraphs long. All are numbered for convenience and ease of reference. The front of the book contains an introduction by the translator, Gregory Hays, while the back of the book has an index of persons and plenty of notes to explain some of the more difficult-to-understand aspects of this ancient text. 191 pgs, hc. ~ Lisa

    Considered by many to be Agatha Christie's finest mystery, Death on the Nile finds detective Hercule Poirot, in the middle of what appears on the surface to be a crime of passion. Gorgeous young heiress Linnet Ridgeway appears to have it all – money, looks, and social position. However, when she sets her sights on her best friend Jaqueline's beau, she gains a new husband and an enemy. While Linnet and her prize enjoy a honeymoon cruise down the Egyptian Nile, the couple is accompanied by a diverse cast of characters also on the steamship, including Jaqueline herself, who is doggedly following the couple. Late one night on the steamer, Jackie shoots Linnet's husband in a fit of passion. While he is only wounded, everyone is shocked to learn the next morning that Linnet has also been shot – fatally. With a limited group of suspects, shifting stories and airtight alibis, this simple "crime of passion" may be one of Poirot's toughest cases yet. 420 pgs, pb. – Jess

    A classic by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (translated into English by Maurice Cranston), this book has been debated since it was published in 1762. Rousseau argues that no one has the right to have authority over others and a "social contract" should exist between all citizens of an area. Seen by some as a blueprint for totalitarianism and by others as a declaration of democratic principles, this fascinating book makes readers consider issues of liberty, law, freedom, and justice. 188 pgs, pb.

    This is Henry Chadwick's translation, from the original Latin into English, of Saint Augustine's classic, Confessions. Near the close of the 4th century, shortly after his ordination as Bishop of Hippo Regius, Augustine began writing his autobiography, which comprises the first nine "books" of this work, followed by a book on memory and the subconscious, one on time and eternity, then a reconciliation of Plato and Christianity on the subject of Creation, and finally an allegory of the first chapter of Gensis to discuss the Church and sacraments. There is much to be learned here about the transition from a fully secular lifestyle, through conversion to a faith in Jesus Christ and beyond. ~ Tom

    C.S. Lewis brings us a novel of Orual, The Queen of Glome. When Orual was a little girl, the only company she had to keep was her irritating sister, Redival, and her father, the tempestuous King. However, her life changed dramatically with the introduction of Fox, one of her father's slaves, into her life. Fox became her only true comfort, and Orual affectionately began to call him "Grandfather." Fox taught her to think in the ways of the Greeks, how to regard the Gods and everything else that has happened in her life. Soon after the arrival of Fox, the King married and brought into the world the most beautiful child, "Istra," which translates to Psyche. As Orual's family has partial blood of the Gods, Psyche too has been touched. It does not take long before the citizens of Glome begin to refer to her as a goddess. While Psyche is beautiful, Orual is extremely homely. Psyche makes the God Ungit jealous; therefore, as punishment, there has been little yield in the way of crops. The Priest of Ungit declares that in order for the citizens of Glome to be prevented from starving, there must be a sacrifice. It is the matter of this sacrifice that will change the soul and the life of Orual forever.
