    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

    C.S. Lewis brings us a novel of Orual, The Queen of Glome. When Orual was a little girl, the only company she had to keep was her irritating sister, Redival, and her father, the tempestuous King. However, her life changed dramatically with the introduction of Fox, one of her father's slaves, into her life. Fox became her only true comfort, and Orual affectionately began to call him "Grandfather." Fox taught her to think in the ways of the Greeks, how to regard the Gods and everything else that has happened in her life. Soon after the arrival of Fox, the King married and brought into the world the most beautiful child, "Istra," which translates to Psyche. As Orual's family has partial blood of the Gods, Psyche too has been touched. It does not take long before the citizens of Glome begin to refer to her as a goddess. While Psyche is beautiful, Orual is extremely homely. Psyche makes the God Ungit jealous; therefore, as punishment, there has been little yield in the way of crops. The Priest of Ungit declares that in order for the citizens of Glome to be prevented from starving, there must be a sacrifice. It is the matter of this sacrifice that will change the soul and the life of Orual forever.

    Predestination is a hard doctrine to understand and/or accept. Dr. R.C. Sproul, the author of this book, struggled with and continues to struggle with the concept. He invites you to struggle with him as you embark on the difficult journey of examining the doctrines of predestination. Through nine chapters Sproul covers the following topics: predestination and the sovereignty of God, predestination and free will, Adam's fall and mine, spiritual death and spiritual life, foreknowledge and predestination, double predestination, assurance, and any concluding questions and objections concerning this topic. He thoroughly covers each topic and provides a lot of scriptural support as well as quotes from many different theologians. To say the least, this is a heavy book full of deep thoughts to ponder and examine. Just to let you know, Sproul supports the "reformed" view of predestination (Yes, there is more than one view!) proposed by people like John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, and St. Augustine. My favorite part of the whole book is the summary at the end of each chapter. These summaries highlight the main points of the chapter, which makes it easy to revisit them at a later time. Whether you know nothing about predestination or have some nagging questions, this book will really help you understand this position. – 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.
