    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.

    The New York Times Book Review called it "at once a reference book and a book which may be read for stimulation and pleasure." Edith Hamilton has done a marvelous job in compiling and retelling these tales of so long ago. From the gods of Olympus in the Greek tradition and the gods of Rome they inspired, to the stories of love and adventure, of war and heroes, and of families and royalty, this book covers it all. In fact, it also includes myths of lesser importance, myths of extreme brevity, and the myths of the Norsemen. An incredible resource that has been in use for more than sixty years, its content is timeless. ~ Zach

    Many homeschoolers are familiar with Dorothy Sayers because of her writings concerning education, and many know her for creating the Peter Wimsey mysteries. This Sayers novel is considered by many to be in the top five mystery novels of all time. It takes place in an English village and is full of memorable characters like the arrogant and finicky detective Lord Peter Wimsey, his faithful servant Bunter, a rector at the local church, the French wife of a thief, and many other assorted odd characters. The writing is witty and filled with dry humor, and all the elements of a classic mystery exist. With a missing emerald necklace, shady townspeople, and secrets hidden in the rings of church bells, this novel will keep you entertained and guessing until the surprising and satisfying conclusion. 398 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Considered by many to be Agatha Christie's finest mystery, Death on the Nile finds detective Hercule Poirot, in the middle of what appears on the surface to be a crime of passion. Gorgeous young heiress Linnet Ridgeway appears to have it all – money, looks, and social position. However, when she sets her sights on her best friend Jaqueline's beau, she gains a new husband and an enemy. While Linnet and her prize enjoy a honeymoon cruise down the Egyptian Nile, the couple is accompanied by a diverse cast of characters also on the steamship, including Jaqueline herself, who is doggedly following the couple. Late one night on the steamer, Jackie shoots Linnet's husband in a fit of passion. While he is only wounded, everyone is shocked to learn the next morning that Linnet has also been shot – fatally. With a limited group of suspects, shifting stories and airtight alibis, this simple "crime of passion" may be one of Poirot's toughest cases yet. 420 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Subtitled "A Comprehensive Guide to the Peloponnesian War," this massive volume contains the Greek author Thucydides' complete text of Peloponnesian War plus tons of helpful supplementary material. This newly revised edition of the Richard Crawley translation has maps, annotations, and an encyclopedic index. A helpful introduction at the beginning places the work in historical context, and the main text is glossed with annotations that explain and elaborate upon those difficult-to-understand historical references. Maps appear throughout the text as well, showing readers where specific battles and journeys occurred. The appendix contains a detailed and multi-page timeline, background information about the Athenian government and Spartan operations, diagrams of battle ships, and information about dialects, ethnic groups, and religious festivals in ancient Greece.

    A completely revised edition of the book originally published by John Foxe in 1563 known simply as the Book of Martyrs. It has been carefully edited into modern American English and includes new photographs, a full-color timeline, and an updated index. Starting with Jesus Christ Himself, who Foxe refers to as "the inspiration and source of all martyrdom," and stretching through the years up through the 20th century, this book gives us a view into the lives of those willing to pay the ultimate price for their faith at the hands of unbelievers and those who would persecute fellow Christians for the sake of denominational issues.

    This classic political satire by George Orwell attaches the idea of totalitarian government using farm animals as characters. The animals try to run the farm on their own and create a paradise of progress and equality, but certain animals (namely the pigs) begin to take control and take away freedoms. With great parallels to many governments, this book is a must-read. A few complete and unabridged editions are available. The Signet Classic Edition has a preface by Russell Baker and is 144 pages, softcover. The Penguin Edition also has a preface by Russell Baker as well as an essay introduction about Orwell and is 102 pages, softcover. ~Rachel

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

    If you don't read this "prequel" to the Lord of the Rings trilogy you miss a lot of the little details throughout the adventures of Frodo and the fellowship of the ring. Without Bilbo's adventure, Frodo's never would have happened. This unabridged edition is 8" x 10" in size and has forty-eight, full-color, full-page, fantasy-style illustrations – including five lavish two-page spreads by artist Michael Hague. The illustrations alone make this a great book for younger readers, but the larger print also helps! Read along and let your imagination run wild as you join Bilbo on the first adventure that led to so many others! Pb, 290 pgs. – elise

    Here is one of the classic Christian worldview books, written by Francis Schaeffer, the founder of L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland. This book delves into a variety of subjects ( philosophy, religion, history, art and music), discussing different viewpoints but arguing for the Biblical viewpoint. In an article on teaching worldviews (Practical Home Schooling, Sep/Oct 1996), Cathy Duffy says that she uses this book to review and tie ideas together after discussing a topic. However, she warns not to just turn a high school student loose with the book, since the student would not have the necessary background to understand it. A great resource to teach a Christian worldview.

    Edmund Burke wrote this classic during the early months of the French Revolution in 1790. Not only did it predict with great accuracy many of the worst excesses of the Revolution, it is today regarded as a classic statement of conservative political thought. In the book he attacks the Revolution's negative attitudes towards institutions like religion and property and makes a strong case for upholding established political customs. An 80 page introduction by Conor Cruise O'Brien examines the political situation in England and Ireland and how it influenced Burke's point of view and also highlights the significance and popularity of the book. 406 pgs, pb.

    For fifteen centuries, Benedictine monasticism has been governed by a "Rule" that is strong enough to keep order and yet flexible enough to be followed fifteen hundred years later. Translated into English by Timothy Fry from the Order of St. Benedict, this classic text for monastic life shows the guidelines that monks in his order live by. Striving for equality in community, the book touches on charity, humility, submission, prayer, personality, integrity, spirituality, listening, and the fact that all are equal before God. Can be read to see how sixth century monks lived or even as a devotional booklet. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
