    This famous, long-appreciated text by Martin Luther delves into a variety of theological issues, many the primary doctrines of the Reformation. Translated by Packer and Johnston in a way that captures the emotion and style of Luther's original Latin, the book covers many Biblical topics, focusing especially on free-will and predestination. Much of the book compares Luther's theology to that of Desiderius Erasmus, another notable religious figure in the 1500s, and multiple scripture references are included. Though the language and vocabulary of the book may be challenging for contemporary readers, the thoughts and theology it contains spurred the Reformation and has since guided many to a deeper understanding of theological issues. For those not familiar with Luther's views, these writings defend predestination and highlight man's inability to save himself. 320 pgs, pb.

    Originally written in Latin by the 8th century scholarly monk, the Venerable Saint Bede (considered to be the best known medieval historian), and translated by Bertram Colgrave, this book covers England's religious history from the 1st century BC, through and including the events of Bede's own timeframe. Also included is a translation of Bede's The Greater Chronicle, which examines the Roman Empire and Europe of his day, and his Letter to Egbert, which discusses his thoughts about the English Church just before he died in 735. ~ Tom

    Subtitled "Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," I could see this book serving as a great introduction to Latin for the family who is not sure they want to jump right into a full-fledged Latin course. Of course, it would be just as useful for an older student (or even Mom and Dad), if they have never studied Latin but want to learn it on their own. The course was designed out of necessity by author William E. Linney, after he was asked by a relative to teach Latin to her children. He set out looking for a course that would not require a Latin teacher, was self-paced, self explanatory, offered lots of practice exercises, was non-threatening, and inexpensive. When he couldn't find a course that suited his needs, he designed this one. The book contains 134 lessons, which are short (usually less than a page in length), un-fluffy, and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a nice balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. No lesson covers all of these tasks, but instead focuses on one objective and covers it well. Lessons that introduce new Latin vocabulary feature a new Latin word, its English meaning, and sometimes a pronunciation tip. This is usually followed by about ten sentences to translate. Lessons on grammar are also bite-sized, and different forms and cases are introduced gradually. As they are introduced, they are added to a chart, and students will translate sentences that use the forms and cases that they have learned. As charts are filled with endings or forms, students may be asked to memorize them, to aid in future lessons. Just for fun, "Latin Expressions" are scattered throughout the book. In each one, the author takes a common Latin phrase like "caveat emptor," or "etc." and explains the Latin history behind each phrase. Don't underestimate how these little "sparks" of knowledge whet your appetite to learn more! By the end of the book, students will have stockpiled basic vocabulary of around 100 words, be comfortable translating simple sentences in Latin, and have a grasp of basic Latin grammar.

    There are a couple of aspects of this course worth noting. First of all, because the book is more of a text than a worktext it is not designed to be consumable. For translation purposes, the author recommends translating the sentences in a separate notebook. If extra practice is desired, you may wish to translate the sentences back to the form given in the lesson. Secondly, while we all realize that pronunciation is very difficult to teach "out of a book", the author has considered this, and has come up with an ingenious solution. He has provided MP3 audio files free of charge on his website, which can be downloaded and used with the lessons. As an added bonus, you can choose from either classical pronunciation or ecclesiastical pronunciation. Audio commentary on the lessons and a host of other helpful resources is also included on the website. Lastly, this course would be excellent prep for an older student who will be studying Latin in high school or college who hasn't had the benefit of laying a basic Latin foundation earlier in life. Upon completion of this book, I think students would be more ready to tackle Lingua Latina, Oxford University Latin, Henle Latin, or Cambridge Latin, than if they were starting off cold. Latina Christiana I or other complete courses designed for younger students could also be considered reasonable continuations, although there would be much more overlap/review between courses. This is a terrific way to get started in Latin and I am glad that the author did not find what he was looking for to teach Latin, because he has certainly written a course that fulfills all of his goals! – Jess

    Beginning readers will appreciate this dictionary written just for them! This reference contains over 2000 age-appropriate vocabulary words. The book begins with an introductory section that teaches kids how to use the dictionary. Then it proceeds to the entries. The print size is large and easy to read, with about five entries per page. Guidewords appear at the top of each page, and entry words are in purple so they're easy to find. The definitions are complete sentences (ie. "A shed is a small building used to store things."), and sample sentences show how words are used in context. Full color captioned photos enhance the text and hold kids' interest. Some entries have feature notes which show sound-alikes, opposites, rhyming words, or related words. Different meanings of the same word are clearly distinguished, and irregular verb forms and noun plurals are listed at the end of each entry (when applicable). The bottom of each page has an alphabet border to reinforce "ABC order" skills. An appendix provides brief reviews of phonics and spelling concepts, plus commonly used word lists. 400+ pages, hc. ~ Lisa

    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

     This fictional tale will be well received by those interested in the history of Ireland, and particularly by readers who have an interest in how Roman Catholic families were treated during the years of English rule. The story showcases the plight of Irish children in the year 1735, who are forced to attend school in remote and secret places so that they might learn Latin and Roman Catholic history and traditions. The author, Gloria Whelan, is a well-known and prolific writer. 184 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
