    There's a certain amount of controversy over the necessity or even wisdom of diagramming sentences. Many insist it just isn't necessary for developing a good working use of grammar. I look at it a little differently. Diagramming is a graphic organizer; a tool to help us understand the relationship of words in a sentence, and thus, to help us understand our language and improve our communication skills. That being the case, what better way to "kill two birds with one stone" than to use sentences from Scripture as diagramming practice and models? In the step-by-step analysis that diagramming requires, we can come to a much richer understanding of the meaning of Scripture. The language of the KJV (the version of the Bible used in this study) can be a bit daunting, which is why the author starts at the very beginning. She reviews each part of speech (i.e. nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc.) as well as the various parts of a sentence (subject, verbs, direct objects, etc.), teaching sentence patterns. She then builds precept upon precept, giving the student diagrammed examples, practice sentences, and ultimately tests. (Correct diagrams for all practice and test sentences are in the back of the book.) When the going gets tough and complicated (i.e. noun or adjective clauses), the author provides in-depth instruction as well as "helps" such as the "signal words" that introduce noun clauses. By the way, this is the point at which the impact of the Bible content is most realized. Sorting through a sentence in order to diagram it becomes a function of pondering God's Word. The book is a worktext with plenty of space and diagram frameworks provided. 329 pgs. pb ~ Janice

    If you want to start at the beginning, this one book could be your source for readiness activities from birth to age 5!  Contained in this 328-page book are 260 activities meant to be introduced one per week.  These skills are carefully ordered according to a child’s normal developmental age and readiness for each new skill to be introduced.  Activities require only household items, take only about 10 minutes per day, and are generally easy to prepare for and implement.  Each is about one page in length and features a black-and-white photo of the activity in action. So for a busy mom, they require little preparation time, but have outstanding educational value. By observing the child in the light of these developmentally-appropriate activities, parents can determine where their child is developmentally.  Please note that this book is not a collection of “early-learning activities,” but developmentally appropriate ones that are relaxed and entertaining.  While not high-pressure, they are mentally stimulating and may enhance brain development. Updated edition.

    With so many American history books these days being stripped of any reference to God or the importance of His laws as the foundation of our nation, it is refreshing to have a book that digs into the real history of the founders. This book digs. The series examines the lives and faith of the signers of the Declaration of Independence (19 in Volume 1 and the remaining 37 will be covered in Volume 2) and, when complete (three volumes) will also include the 39 signers of the Constitution. The introduction to Volume 1 sets the stage by looking at the evidences of faith from each colony, their charters, the continental congresses, and even the proposals for the Great Seal. The individual profiles of the signers, integrating many quotes and ranging in length from 5 to 18 pages, provide a biography of each, his legacy, and a look at the evidence of his faith. Also included is his signature, his colony/state, his church affiliation, plus one more interesting designation – his score on Combs Informal Scale of Christian Devotion. This last is the author’s own rating that ranges from 1 (Not Devout) to 5 (Makes Billy Graham look like an atheist).

    Examples of a strong faith-based beginning to our country are evident in more than just the lives/beliefs of the founding fathers. In fact, there are evidences everywhere – the Declaration of Independence, The Gettysburg Address, colonial charters, proclamations, days of prayer and fasting, state constitutions, marching songs and even the Liberty Bell. This book has been carefully researched and is fully footnoted.

    Fascinating and encouraging, even inspiring reading, this book does not, however, gloss over one of the glaring criticisms of “the signers.” In a short essay, the author considers the signers and their view of slavery. Obviously, a complicated subject, he provides an insightful discussion. 296 pgs, pb ~ Janice
