    Things without structure have a way of failing at the most inopportune times. Things without structure can tend to languish behind in the forgotten world of "I'll get to it when I have time." One of the most helpful and uplifting things for a Christian is to have a steady structure for spending time in God's Word – which is Life itself. Balancing the Sword is a meticulous study of the Bible, designed to give its users a comprehensive working knowledge of what the Bible actually says. Each volume of this two-volume set covers every chapter of all 66 books in the Bible, though each set of questions is different. With over 7,000 questions in all, the average verse to question ratio is 2.7. There are also 54,000 cross references, over 1,000 quotes from famous people who acknowledge the Bible's greatness, and over 1,000 illustrations, literal depictions, charts, and maps. The answers to all the questions are actually included, and space is provided on every page to make notes of things that occur to the reader along the way. The set now comes with the online Balancing the Sword Reading Planner software that will help you customize a reading schedule all your own. The software's flexibility is impressive and is compatible with a range of internet browsers, including Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera. The code for accessing the software is included with the book set (this replaces the CD version of the software that used to be bundled with the set). The introduction in the books includes ideas and tips for getting the most from this comprehensive and dedicated Bible study program. Each volume is 589 pgs, hc. - Zach

    Most art books talk more about the painting itself than the artist. Here you learn about the person first. Kids learn things they won't get in just any old art book. Learn about the artist as a kid themselves, what they liked to do, and who inspired them. Most of the 35 artists are featured over two-page spreads, with more prolific artists getting four pages. There is a narrative, examples of their work, some representation of the person and where they come from, with snippets of information around the pages with funny little illustrations so it's not all so serious looking. Your students will like the easy-to-read format. This is not a text book, though there is a lot of information in this book. Use it as a starting point for a unit study on art and let kids choose a person to focus on. I think kids who are interested in art or museums will really enjoy this one. ~ Sara

    Do your children sometimes choose to not follow the rules? Turns out classical composer Antonio Vivaldi had the same problem when he was a priest. You didn't know he was a priest? How about that his father was a professional violinist? Learn some of the stories behind six famous composers and their music in this informative pair of CDs. A calm female voice narrates about the lives of six composers who wrote between 1678 and 1975: Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, Shostakovich, and Dvorak. Samples of their music are interspersed with scenes acted out from their lives. The variety of voices keeps your interest. I listened to the section on Vivaldi's music. The narrator tells you what was going on in the composer's mind when he wrote his famous work The Four Seasons. Before you hear the piece called Springtime, the narrator tells you to listen for instruments that sound like birds chirping, so you will be actively listening. Then you hear Summer, Fall and Winter. For Winter, you are told that there is a cold wind, teeth are chattering and there are people ice skating. I can imagine kids closing their eyes and picturing this scene as they listen to the music. What a great discussion you could have following that experience! I see this being effective in a class, small group or with a student working independently. ~ Sara
