Several chapters also touch upon the feudal system in Europe, the influence of the monks and monasteries, and the exploits of influential knights and monarchs. Some of the cultural references in the text material are a bit dated, yet this world history supplement still offers readers a useful overview of the early development of Western Europe. 216 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    In the late 16th century, England is in the midst of religious turmoil. The newly-emerging Protestant faith has begun spreading throughout major cities, finding eager listeners from all walks of life. William Brewster is a simple country lad during these tumultuous times. Following the visit of a Queen's aide, William is intrigued by the grandiose political and diplomatic events erupting across England, and pursues a career as a statesman's aide. But as the country descends into fighting between the Catholic and Protestant faiths, he is forced to choose a side; many of his closest friends, including a hero of ProtestantismJohn Penryhave forgone the teachings of the Catholic Church, insisting that "good men must never submit to tyranny." Yet others believe no religious tenant can allow the Christian faith to divide. William Brewster must navigate political, social, and religious upheavals throughout England while staying true to the ideals most important to him. 341 pgs, sc. ~ Stephen

       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 subjects of England were probably a bit wary when Elizabeth came to the throne; they had gossiped about her father's many wives, mourned the loss of the young and sickly Edward, and tolerated her older half-sister Mary's brief but fiery rule. When the throne passed to her, advisers thought it best for her to marry and step aside, leaving the business of running the country to her husband, whoever he would be. Thankfully, Elizabeth had other ideas, and surprised everyone by guiding England into a period of relative peace, world exploration, and emphasis on the arts. This readable biography by Diane Stanley and husband Peter Vennema spans Elizabeth's life and reign accompanied by the author's excellent illustrations, which draw the reader into the life and times of Elizabeth. 40 pgs. ~ Alysia
