    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

    For most of us the Battle of Gettysburg is a historical event, something mentioned in the history books because of the great loss of life and the effect it had on the Civil War. However, it is so much more than that. "Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty were also the casualties of war." This historical novel will bring you face to face with the men and their character, thoughts, and hopes. Illustrated with maps at various points to show the changing lines of the two armies, this book by Michael Shaara gives a full account of the battle. 374 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    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.

    Early in the 20th century, life was changing in many ways, from the greater mobility afforded by the automobile to the belief that, through science, man could achieve almost anything. Communism was transformed from a social theory to a form of government. The Christian church faced an ideological challenge called liberalism that challenged some of the tenets of orthodox Protestantism. This 1923 book by J. Gresham Machen defends the orthodox view on the topics of God, man, the Bible, Jesus Christ, salvation and the church. 158 pgs, pb.

    C.S. Lewis' brilliantly insightful book about the activity of the devil's assistants as they endeavor to steer a person onto and along the path of destruction. Through letters received from an uncle, we see how the battle the evil tempter Wormwood is fighting unfolds. Also included in this book is the article Screwtape Proposes a Toast, in which Screwtape (the uncle sending the letters to Wormwood), as the guest of honor at the Tempters' Training College, is giving a speech about temptation and how it is used effectively. Though a work of fiction, this book is an encouragement to all Christians to stand firm against the temptation to sin and turn from the Cross. 209 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    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.

    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.

    This classic work by Marcus Aurelius, the Roman philosopher and emperor, provides a "manual" for living a virtuous life. Aurelius gives insight and advice on everything from dealing with adversity and interacting with others to coming to terms with life and death. This manual is divided into eleven books (some with themes, such as Debts and Lessons), with each book containing plenty of maxims, sayings, musings, and reflections. Some of the musings are brief (one or two sentences), while others are several paragraphs long. All are numbered for convenience and ease of reference. The front of the book contains an introduction by the translator, Gregory Hays, while the back of the book has an index of persons and plenty of notes to explain some of the more difficult-to-understand aspects of this ancient text. 191 pgs, hc. ~ Lisa

    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

    A classic by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (translated into English by Maurice Cranston), this book has been debated since it was published in 1762. Rousseau argues that no one has the right to have authority over others and a "social contract" should exist between all citizens of an area. Seen by some as a blueprint for totalitarianism and by others as a declaration of democratic principles, this fascinating book makes readers consider issues of liberty, law, freedom, and justice. 188 pgs, pb.

    This play by Arthur Miller was first performed in 1949 and has been popular ever since. The majority of the play takes place in Willy Loman's (the main character) house and yard, although there are some scenes in the places he travels to. Willy is a failing traveling salesman who has a passionate dream for success and achieving the classic "American dream." Struggling to support his wife and two boys, Willy is somewhat of an unrealistic dreamer. There's a bit of humor in the play, but overall, it's a drama that ends rather tragically. There are about five main characters and thirteen characters in all. The book presents the play in standard play format and is 140 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
