    This book is a visual treat for visual learners (like myself). I am a huge fan of the Rose Publishing pamphlets due to the wide variety of visually-pleasing Bible charts, maps, and time lines they offer. As a result, I was thrilled when this amazing book wound up on my desk. I had to force myself to stop looking through the pages so I could write this description! This book has 188 pages of spectacular full-color charts, maps, and time lines – many of which you can buy as individual pamphlets, but some that are not available individually.

    The content of this book can be broken up into six different categories. The first category is a section dedicated to general Bible charts. In this section there are charts that present the books of the Bible, an overview of the Old and New Testament, insight on how we got the Bible, lists of 100 well-known people and prayers, and a Christian history time line (which is really good!). Next you move into the Old Testament Charts, which provides you with an outline of creation, 100 well-known events, family trees, names of God, insight to the Ten Commandments, and wonderful charts that bring clarity to Judges, Kings, Prophets, the prophesies of Daniel, and important archaeological finds that support the Old Testament. The third section of this book gives New Testament charts. This section includes charts on the genealogy of Jesus; 100 prophesies fulfilled by Jesus; events, miracles, parables, and teachings of Jesus; information on the twelve disciples; 100 well-known events from Acts to Revelation; archaeological finds that support the New Testament; and other charts that cover well-known portions of scripture such as the Armor of God and Fruit of the Spirit. The next section contains twenty beautiful and well-labeled maps that highlight different features of the Middle East and The Holy Land, as well as showing where Jesus walked and the locations of Paul's missionary journeys. The fifth section includes colorful illustrations and diagrams of places described in the Bible, such as Noah's Ark, The Tabernacle, The Ark of the Covenant, Solomon's Temple, Herod's Temple, and a detailed diagram of Palm Sunday to Easter. Lastly, the final section provides information on Christianity, Cults, and Religions, denominations comparison, the Trinity, and a comparison of Islam and Christianity.

    This book is hardcover and has a spine, but it has a hidden spiral binding that allows you easily reproduce the pages for your classroom. This resource may seem a little pricey; however, if you bought all of these charts separately in pamphlet form, you would pay much more. Plus, you will be hard pressed to find another resource that so clearly presents the truths of the Bible in such an amazing visual format! – elise

    Do you ever wonder where places mentioned in the Bible are located? For instance, where on earth is Susa? Or where exactly did Paul's journeys take him? Coming equipped with numerous maps, this book will put an end to a lot of your questions. Most included Bible maps come with a transparent overlay showing modern-day cities and countries. Maps with overlays include The Middle East, Assyrian Empire, Paul and his journeys, the Persian Empire and Babylonian Kingdoms, and four maps showing the Holy Land at different time periods. Maps without overlays include journeys of Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Peter, and Philip, The Exodus, setup of the Tabernacle, Jerusalem at Jesus' time, a layout of the tomb of Jesus, and a map of the Roman Empire marking the spread of Christianity. Interesting facts about Old Testament prophets, Jesus' life, Paul's Letters and more are also included. A handy index is in the back of the book. To top everything off a CD-ROM containing JPGs of all the maps and PDFs of the maps and overlays are thrown into the mix. This opens the door for you to make handouts, overhead transparencies, and even PowerPoint shows. hc., 40 pages. ~ Tasha

    Quick! What do a pen and a squid have in common? Hopefully, this wasn't an association you had to ink much about! Each player starts the game with an equal deck of cards beside them and five picture/word cards face up in front of them. Two cards are placed face up in the middle of the playing surface. Race to be the first player to come up with a connection between one of your five cards and a center card! If you succeed, place your card over one in the center and say why the two objects are linked. You card becomes a new card that players try to form an association with. Then fill the empty space in front of you with a card from your deck. The first player to correlate all of their cards wins! For 2 or more players. Game time: approx. 30 minutes.

    Honestly, of all the books about horses that I've ever seen, this is the one that I would consider the horse Bible. This was the first horse book that I ever owned and through it I got one of the most wonderful horses in the world - but more about that later. The lengthy introduction covers horse breeds, types, temperaments, relatives, conformation, life cycle, color patterns, markings, gaits, sporting and working events, saddles, bridles, bits, origins and more. These pages are packed full of information, pictures, illustrations, etc. The meat of the book is devoted to discussing over 100 individual horse breeds, divided into three sections: ponies, light horses, and heavy horses. Most breeds receive a two-page spread and a plethora of information about that breed including environment, origin, temperament, breeding, characteristics, colors, and uses. Pages also include a map section with a highlighted area of the region the horse originated from, a key showing the types of horses which influenced the breed and the traits that they passed to it, and a silhouette illustration of the horse standing next to a 6' tall man for size comparison along with size ranges. Front and center, of course, is a photograph of the horse which takes up the majority of the page with distinctive points of conformation marked out to assist with breed identification. The end pages include a glossary of equine lingo that not all are familiar with and an index so you can flip back to your favorite breed easily until you have the page memorized. This book was also my art inspiration (horses are the only thing I draw at all well), and I often took this book with me as a guide when I was drawing - my goal was to draw all the breeds, but I never got that accomplished! Besides educating me, this book did something else for me - it was in this book I saw my first picture of a Friesian (pg. 116!!) and then and there I decided that I had to have one at some point in my life (not knowing at the time how expensive they are). I had never even touched one before last spring where, because of this book, I decided that I would do my required internship (for the horse program I was in) at a Friesian breeding facility. I had never seen one up close, but they were still on my mind, so I located a farm up in Minnesota. After two weeks there my dreams came true - my bosses gifted me with an almost two-year old Friesian cross (that's right, he's only half Friesian, but he is gorgeous!) which I named Tonto. It was truly one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me and, of course, I owe it to God and this amazing book! ~ Megan

       The Bible can be overwhelming, especially for new believers or those just starting out and trying to understand. This book tells 120 key stories (chronologically) accompanied by 134 prints of realistic art and 107 informational graphics and maps. Each story is two pages – the first page is a retelling of the story marked with the book and chapter reference, ‘Words to Remember’ is a memory verse from the ESV, and the second page is a picture or map that complements the story. In cases where there is a picture, two or three ‘Did You Know’ questions offer additional information about the history or culture or a reference to the meaning of certain words. Periodically, readers will find a two-page spread that offers informational graphics about a book of the Bible, a Bible character, an event, etc. – the kings of Judah and Israel, story of Jonah, and the book of Amos, just to name a few. The visuals give clarity to topics that might be confusing. This book is not intended to be a complete retelling of the Bible; several of the New Testament books are presented with just the two-page informational graphic pages. The topical index makes it easier to refer to specific stories.

      If you know someone who needs a simpler explanation of Bible content, the pictures and graphics found in this book will be very helpful. It could also be used as your daily family Bible reading, since it should have an appeal to multiple learning styles and age groups. 368 pages, pb. ~ Donna

    Depending on your definition of "lesson plans," these may seem more like a checklist to you, but they do provide just that little bit of structure that can assure you that you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. A brief half-page of teacher's notes precede the weekly checklists. These indicate how/when the teacher should interject into the reading, how to handle the comprehension questions, and the basics of the map activities. Then for each week, there's a checklist for indicating completion of reading the story, the workbook and memory verse, and the quizzes, reviews, and tests. In typical Memoria Press fashion, these are straight to the point yet helpful. 7 pgs, comb-binding ~ Janice

    Part of Master Books' Wonders of Creation series, this book is more historical in nature than the other titles, which focus more on science. For the first time ever in this series, they have written a book with information tailored to three age groups: 5th-6th grade, 7th-8th grade, and 9th-11th grades. Text geared for each age group is printed on a differently-colored background, with the most basic information (who, what, where, why and how) written to younger readers, and the most complex information (theories, controversies) geared for older readers. Eleven chapters discuss what archaeology is, and then look at archaeology investigations at a number of different ancient Middle Eastern sites, including Egypt, the land of the Hittites, Ur of the Chaldees, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Petra, the land of the Phoenicians, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Israel. An overview of the history of locations or cultures is provided in each chapter, along with exciting details on recent discoveries and narratives from the Bible that correlate with the history of a place or related ruler. Maps, full-color photos and notes from the author add further interest. Although the differently-colored blocks of text aren't too hard to get used to as an older reader, younger readers that have an interest in archaeology may browse other sections, and will certainly be interested in perusing the full-color photographs of sites and artifacts. A separate 36-page study guide includes vocabulary, short answer questions, and hands-on activities for each chapter. This is available as a free download at www.masterbooks.net. A wonderful supplement to any study of ancient history, and a great resource for Christian students interested in the field of archaeology. 96 pgs, hc. – Jess

    This CD-ROM by Richard Thetford contains 52 lessons on the history and geography of Bible times. The lessons are presented on more than 940 PowerPoint slides, so you'll have to have Microsoft PowerPoint (or at least PowerPoint Viewer) to be able to use them. The CD is a companion to the History and Geography of the Bible Story by Bob and Sandra Waldron. Although the lessons are based on that book, they can easily be used with any Bible or even history class curriculum. The lessons give a good summary of the history of Biblical nations and will help students learn the geography of the Bible lands. Basically, it gives a general survey of the Bible from Genesis through the close of the first century. High quality, full-color maps, charts, and photographs are included on the slides, and when students click on the screen, information pops up. Info is presented sentence by sentence so students can click at their own pace to follow the lessons. Sometimes the info is presented in outline form, with several bullets per slide. The 52 lessons are divided by geographic areas, time periods, and books of the Bible with instruction on the geography of Palestine, promises to Abraham, the conquest of Canaan, the empire of Solomon, the fall of Israel, the life of Christ, Paul's journeys, and so much more. There are reviews of some of the books of the Bible, which quickly sum up what happened and where it happened in that book. The history and geography of the Bible really comes alive through the charts, maps, and other graphics, and the concise text sections make it easy for students to focus on the key facts about a large variety of Bible stories. The very first lesson shows students (and teachers) how to get the most out of the presentations and explains why learning geography along with the history of the Bible is so important and effective. With a good summary of the entire Bible, facts on the geography of the Bible lands, colorful graphics, and an interactive computer interface, this is a great way to learn historical details about the Bible.

    This CD has been updated and is now even more useful because it now includes student questions (with answers) for every one of the 52 lessons. If students understand the material, they will be able to answer the 10-20 questions per lesson, which are provided in PDF format. Works on any operating system, as long as you have Microsoft PowerPoint or Viewer.

    If you need a handy, easy-to-use Bible reference, this could be what you're looking for. This isn't an in depth, verse-by-verse explanation of the Bible. This is a QuickSource! It begins with an explanation of how to read this book and use it as a reference. It then proceeds book by book, following the same format for each book. Each book begins with a Key Bible Text, a verse that gives a clue to the meaning of the book. It then gives a Key Term, which summarizes the book in one word. Next there is a One-Sentence Summary which shows how this particular book relates to God's story. The first section after the introductory material is entitled "God's Message in the Book." Here you'll read the purpose of the book, the Christian Worldview Elements as they pertain to twelve themes, teachings about God, teachings about humanity, and teachings about salvation. The second section is called "Christ in …" which explains how we can see Christ within that book. The 3rd section is titled "God's Story." This is a fuller explanation of the summary found at the beginning of each book on how the events in this book fit into God's bigger picture. The fourth section deals with the "Original Historical Setting." It is here that you'll get information about the author, date of writing, first audience and destination, and the occasion for the writing. The fifth and last section of each book is "Literary Features." Genre and literary style, theme and book features, and structure are discussed in this section. Scattered throughout the information are full-color diagrams, maps and photographs pertaining to the contents of that book. All of this information is packed into only about 6 pages per book of the Bible. This book was designed for those beginning their Bible journey, but it could be used by the more experienced as well. This is definitely an easy reference to use! Softcover, 405 pages. ~ Donna

    Learning new things is easier for young students when tied in to a common theme. That's why unit studies are so popular and successful. So what about Galloping the Globe? It's a unit study centered around geography. It encourages a detailed look at a selection of countries from the six populated continents as well as the North and South Poles and Christmas around the world. Using the countries being studied geographically as the basic platform, the authors have included ideas and references, projects and activities for integrating Bible, people/history, science, literature, vocabulary, internet sources, maps & flags, cooking, music/art, games, puzzles, and crafts into the curriculum. An aspect to this unit study which is similar to the Trail Guide to… series is the student notebook approach, where the child will actually produce a notebook full of art projects, reports, biographies, geographic dictionary pages, and much more. This is intended to be something they can show to other people, reinforcing and reviewing what they have learned as they explain various facts to friends and family. This is a fairly flexible course, with a full study of every topic listed taking between two and three years to complete. You can also pick and choose projects to simply make this a year long course. While geography is the main focus of this unit study, it does a good job of including the resources needed to study the other subjects, too. Answers are included and the consumable work pages are reproducible (and are also now found on the included CD-ROM in PDF format, which makes it even easier to use with multiple children). There are several recommended resources which are used multiple times throughout the course. If you are interested in purchasing these, please see below. Items without prices are those that we do not currently carry. The resource list has been recently revised to accommodate for items that were going out of print, and several new resources have been added. This is the newest version, revised in 2010 with a CD-ROM of printable forms, activity sheets, maps and flags. CD is Win/Mac compatible; requires Adobe Reader (a free download). 266 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    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

    So much of the Bible deals with geography: people coming from here and going there; this land being given to or taken from these people; conquerors taking over, empires crumbling, and missionary journeys of the apostles - it's a lot to try and visualize these changes and movements. However, when you have a book with 132 color maps, 140 color photographs, and concise text explaining the geographical and historical context, the task of understanding biblical geography becomes much simpler. The atlas describes first the biblical setting of the ancient Near East, the natural regions of Palestine, and life in ancient Palestine, and then goes through the Old Testament period and the New Testament period through to the third century A.D. With brief articles about geographic regions and cultures, historical charts, and indexes to help you find people and places, this is a very comprehensive Bible atlas. ~ Zach

    A personal record of major events and people encountered in history. Designed to be a record-keeping place, this book gives the framework; you supply the content. With a classical orientation (The very limited written content includes a quotation from Livy.) and an assumption of Biblical events (no actual Biblical or Christian content), the book consists of pages with lined and blank columns. Each two page spread covers a designated period of time. Each page has two columns. The two center columns of a two-page spread are lined (.25” lines) and the two outer columns are blank (for drawings or attaching pictures). Time designations are in the upper left or right corners (outer corners) of each page. Designated time periods differ per two-page spread and are as follows: 5000 - 2500 BC; then 2500 – 2200 BC. Each two-page spread for the rest of the book is marked as follows: 2200 – 1 BC (100 years each spread – 23 spreads); 1 – 1500 AD (100 years); 1500 – 1800 AD (50 years); 1800 – 1900 AD (20 years); 1900 – 2030 AD (10 years). Interspersed at appropriate places are two-page spreads labeled “In the Beginning;” “Men Begin to Multiply;” “A Flood of Water;” and “In the Fullness of Time.” Eleven pages for maps and notes conclude the book. 50 pgs. pb ~ Janice

    Contained within this wonderful resource is a systematic study of the Word of God. This "treasury of Bible information" is designed to reach all classes of people whether their knowledge of the Bible is meager or great. The systematic nature of this book has you not just look at the individual stories, books, or chapters, but at the Bible as a whole. This type of study is necessary if you desire to be able to interpret the Bible in an accurate fashion and fully understand the Bible in its entirety. This survey of the Bible is written by a conservative theologian, William Hendriksen, who holds the position that the Scripture is the infallible Word of God, inspired from beginning to end by the Holy Spirit. It is also important to note that this book is not a book on Bible interpretation (a.k.a hermeneutics), Bible history, or an introduction to the Old and/or New Testament. Instead, this book's main goal is to create interest as it provides a "survey" of both the Old and New Testaments. This book is designed as a springboard for these related Bible studies that you may conduct in the future.

    Part One gives you many facts about the Bible, then provides you with brief instruction on how to study and interpret the Bible. Part Two offers an overview of Bible history with the help of seven chronological charts. Then you are given an introduction to the sixty-six books of the Bible as you venture into Part Three. These sixty-six books are divided into twenty-one groups covered in chronological order beginning with the law all the way through the prophets, epistles, and revelation.

    The battle still rages between evolution and creation, but Dr. Roger Gallop reveals in this book how the evidence supports creation and there is no evidence to support evolution. Although the theory of evolution leaves many unanswered questions and gaps, it is still widely accepted and taught as fact in public school classrooms and in educational media. Dr. Gallop reveals the fact that there is no known scientific law or evidence to support the theory of evolution; rather it is based on poor science.

    This full-size, 8 ½"x 11" book includes over 260 pages of scientific research and information and their correlation to the creation of the earth. Don't be fearful of the size of this book; the content is presented in an accessible fashion and includes helpful pictures, illustrations, graphs, and maps. Dr. Gallop presents the argument of creation vs. evolution, then proceeds to present physical scientific evidence for creation, biological scientific evidence, catastrophic phenomena in geology, geomorphic features of a worldwide flood, sedimentary features, fossil dating, radioisotope dating, and the Biblical account of Noah's Flood. Appendices at the back offer a glossary for all of the new vocabulary you will encounter as well as other helpful resources. Don't be deceived by television, museums, or textbooks. Get the facts and find out what science has to say on the debate of Creation vs. evolution. ~ Donna

    The explorers from the Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert are in for a truly electrifying experience! Played in the same style as the aforementioned games, Forbidden Sky takes players to a mysterious floating platform as an electrical storm rages around them. Each turn, players move and reveal a “platform tile” to an adjacent space. These tiles have a variety of symbols on them: circuits, capacitors, lightning rods. Additionally, gears, teleporters, wind shelters, and Faraday Cages provide other benefits to players located on that tile. After each player takes his or her turn, they reveal Storm Cards. These cards inflict a variety of dangerous effects on players, such as pushing them across the map (and damaging their rope in the process), causing lightning to strike (injuring players), changing wind direction, and intensifying the ever-deadly storm.

    The goal is to find the Launch Pad and escape by connecting the Rocket to lightning rods and capacitors. Lightning rods and capacitors are built by connecting like-symbols on tiles; they can then be attached to the launch pad via “wires” forming a complete circuit from one half of the launch pad – through the lightning rods and capacitors – to the other half of the Launch Pad. When this circuit is complete, the Rocket lights up. But remember: all players must be on the launch pad when the Rocket lifts off, or at least one explorer will be eating lightning for breakfast! Additionally, if a player dies, breaks their rope, or the storm becomes too intense, all players lose. If you like the cooperative challenge of the other games in the Forbidden series, don’t miss out on this exciting entry! For 2-5 players. ~ 60-minute playtime.

    Kids will easily pick up their states, capitals, and U.S. geography as they yell, slap cards down, and use their quick-thinking skills to win state cards and put an impossibly scrambled-up United States back to rights. Each player receives 5 State Cards to create their own "State Line", along with a U.S. map. Then, as a Scramble card is uncovered, players race to fit one of their states to the Scramble card, with clues such as matching the color of the state to the Scramble card, or finding words or names within the state capital. Each of the state cards contains the name of the state, a state outline map, the capital city as well as the state nickname, and, of course, any of this information is fair game to be matched with a Scramble card. When a player is able to match one of their State cards with a Scramble card, they immediately slap it down on the Scramble card and yell out the name of the state. Or, a "Go the Distance" card is played, and the players have to determine which of them has a state that is the closest to that in question, and of course, if they have the lucky card, more slapping and yelling goes on. The game can be played with 2-4 players, and several variations are included to keep it challenging for players of all ages. Loud, noisy, and boisterous as it is, there's plenty of hidden motivations here for them to pick up vital information about each state - and remember it! - Jess

    Take on the role of chieftain of a clan competing to build the best land in this thoughtful game of buying and selling land. Aspects of this game are reminiscent of Carcassone, but the variability and mechanics of this game offer more strategy than the aforementioned. Whereas both games revolve around square tiles featuring different landscapes that have to be connected, Carcassone tiles are placed in a central map, while Isle of Skye players each build their own swath of land that scores them points. The main strategy in this game lies in the buying and selling of land tiles. At the beginning of each round (either 5-6 total, depending on the number of players), players receive their income based off of their current landscape, and then each player randomly draws three landscape tiles from the bag. Once everyone has drawn and all of the new tiles are visible, each player secretly chooses one of their three tiles to discard back into the bag and sets the prices for the other two from their money supply. You have to keep an eye on which tiles other players may want to buy from you to complement their landscape as well as which tiles will most benefit you. Setting prices too low means you wont profit much from the sale, but setting them too high may deter other buyers and cause you to spend more of your own money. Once everyone has set their prices, the player screens are moved so that the prices are revealed, and then players each have a turn to buy a tile from another player. If a player buys a tile from you, you receive your money back as well as the coins paid by the buyer. However, if no one buys your tiles, you pay the bank the price and may add the tile to your personal map, always connecting like landscape to like. As with most great games, there is a good balance between resources, causing you to choose your purchases wisely. The round closes with players scoring based on their current landscape. The scoring is an aspect that brings wonderful variability to the game players randomly select four of the 16 scoring tiles at the beginning of the game and set them in the middle of the scoring track in the spaces marked A, B, C, and D. For example, you may score victory points (VPs) for each sheep in your territory or if you are the player with the most gold. However, each round only scores a combination of the scoring tiles after Round 1, you score using the A and B tiles; after the fourth round you score based on the criteria of tiles A, C, and D. This makes all the scoring tiles important, but each at varying points of the game. At the start of each round players receive additional income based on their land and the land sales start all over again. After the final scoring, the chieftain with the best kingdom wins! Steph
