    Palestine in the first century A.D. is as disturbed and divided as it is today. Apollodorus takes a risk and rescues a man whom a Roman patrol has left to die in the desert. When Apollodorus is killed by robbers, his three sons are left almost penniless. The youngest boy befriends the man rescued from the desert. From him the boy learns the art of the scribe, and together they try to find their identity. A serious story of an important time in history. Sequel to the Ides of April.

    Although not a new idea today, interplanetary travel was an original idea at the time H.G. Wells wrote this title. Horrifying readers in its day, The War of the Worlds is an imaginative account of hostile creatures from Mars invading Earth. Moving about in metal contraptions, they leave behind a trail of destruction as they plow down buildings and anything else in their path with deadly heat rays, making humans desperate to simply survive. Their sudden appearance and seemingly indestructible bodies leave humans utterly bewildered, with little hope of ridding themselves of these terrifying creatures from Mars.

    An introductory history of chemistry, this extremely readable text covers discoveries and developments from ancient to present times. Major emphasis is placed on the contributions of individual scientists (such as Cavendish, Mendeleev, Boyle, and Rutherford) and how they made their discoveries. The focus is not on balancing chemical equations or learning the number of electrons in specific elements. 16 chapters cover: ancient metals (iron, lead, tin), money metals (gold, silver, copper), the search for gold, gases in the air, the use of currents to separate elements, the first periodic table, using a spectroscope to identify elements, cathode ray tubes and alpha particle experiments, compounds by electric attraction, water and its unique properties, carbon and its compounds, organic chemistry, nitrogen and its compounds, silicon and its compounds, modern metals, and chemistry in today's world.

    At first glance you might not expect a collection of short stories to be a cultural statement but look again! As the editor of this compilation explains "the change (in American short stories since the early nineteenth century) has been gradual from a literature that assumed a singular general, homogenous audience educated in the classics, the Christian Bible, even (possibly) in Latin and Greek, to numerous particularized audiences that may have very little in common except the English language." She further notes that the rise of the internet, online blogging, and online publication of writing has added a sort of chaos to the American literary scene. So, this collection of short stories represents both the historical short story icons but also selections from young and emerging writers and, additionally, some "retrievals" from past writers that weren't previously included. Arranged chronologically in terms of publication date, reading through these stories will provide a glimpse into the intricacies of our diverse American culture. Be aware, though, that some authors/stories might push you out of your comfort zone. 870 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Have you ever wondered how man became inspired to create such practical necessities as intermittent windshield wipers, Velcro©, and the technological advances made with computer chips and robotic hands? Would you be surprised to learn that many of these innovations are based on nature? Today's top scientists and engineers often begin their research by studying the natural world-God's Creation-in an effort to understand its complex, yet proven mechanics of design.

    Made in Heaven is authored by popular apologist Ray Comfort and engineer Jeffery Seto. These men recognize the simplicity—and complexity—of God's designs. They explore the inspiration this brings to engineers as they strive to discover better, faster, and more innovative products to improve our lives. This book surveys 32 innovations, all inspired by God's divine design. You will discover how scientists copied shark scales to help Olympic teams swim like a fish; how researchers are studying mussels to develop stronger and waterproof adhesives; and how cat's eyes were the inspiration behind road reflectors. Vivid close-up photos, captions, and illustrations let you see firsthand the beauty of nature and His work. 78 pgs, hc. ~Deanne
