    How about a trip to the zoo? - the seal tank is a lot of fun, and most of us can't wait to see the big cats, right? The fun is sometimes spoiled by only one thing (other than sunburn and ice cream spilled on your shorts, that is): the evolutionary descriptions that are so commonplace on the info plaques. While that is not worth canceling your trip for, it can spoil it a little, as you read through paragraph after paragraph of assumptions and unsubstantiated theories. So take the Zoo Guide with you! Packed with info and colorful photos, more than 100 animals are detailed through aspects of their individual design, their specific features, fun facts, and related family members. A fact file for each animal also gives information on class, order, family, genus/species, size, weight, original diet, present diet, and habitat. Published by Answers in Genesis, these guides promote a 6-day creationist point-of-view, and use a few pages in introduction to briefly discuss this perspective. Each animal's information includes a full-color photo highlights on God's design in the animal, features, fun facts, and biological data such as the animal's class, genus, size and habitat. –Zach

    Have you ever read the Old Testament, and wished for a better understanding of the feasts and celebrations observed by the Israelites? For example, what was the Feast of Trumpets? What was the significance of the Day of Atonement?

    Seven major festivals are covered in this book, including The Sabbath, The Passover, The Feast of First Fruits, The Feast of Pentecost, The Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and The Feast of Tabernacles. Author Martha Zimmerman has carefully researched each festival, and acted each one out with her own family. She then compiled her research and experience in this systematic guide to recreating Biblical feasts in your own home or church.

    Each feast is covered in three distinct sections. First of all, the significance of the feast is described. Symbolic elements such as bread, wine, and candles are explained in detail, and scripture references pertaining to the feast are cited. Secondly, the materials needed for the observance are listed. Most of these are common items you may already have in your own home. Ingredients and recipes for meals are included. Finally, the celebration is laid out in full detail, with specific directions for the observance of the ceremony. Poems, prayers and recitations are listed in the order they are to be used, making festival re-enactment simple, even for the novice. While the observation of these festivals isn't necessary for New Testament believers, this book would shed new light on your study of the Old Testament. ~ Rachel

    Within the borders of the 10/40 window reside about two-thirds of the worlds population - that's nearly 4 billion people. Most of these have never heard the gospel. This book gives you the profiles of the countries in this area so you can become more familiar with the spiritual state of these countries and the needs they have for prayer. In the profiles of 65 countries, a brief overview is given for each, along with some basic facts followed by four half-page write-ups which give historical background, tell of the unreached people, inform on the spiritual competition, and detail some noteworthy trends in the country. The section for each country ends with a list of national prayer concerns, which is divided into three parts: obstacles to ministry, spiritual power points, and festivals and pilgrimages. This 277-page, paperback book will certainly open your eyes to the needs of the countries in the 10/40 window. ~ Zach

    Journey back in time with this magnificent guide to the temple! Written by Episcopalian minister Robert Backhouse, this book covers the history of the Jewish Temple, from the early days of the Tent of Meeting to its present state of ruin. (All that currently remains is the Western Wall Herod the Great built to enclose his Temple area.) Many facts about temple rituals such as animal sacrifice and the various feasts and festivals are given. Explore the "vast complex of colonnades, courtyards and buildings" of the majestic temple with this unique pictorial guide. Nearly every page is illustrated with color photographs of an intricate temple model hand-constructed by Alec Garrard of Norfolk, England. This authentic model is based on information from the Bible, the Talmud, the Mishnah, Flavius Jesephus, and archeological discoveries. The model was built to a scale of 1: 100, and each handmade "brick" was baked in Mr. Garrard's own oven. This guide brings to life one of the Bible's grandest structures better than any book I've ever seen. No home or church library should be without it! ~ Rachel

    After being out of print for a while, it's a pleasure to have this study once again available. With an emphasis on interactive discussion and worldview, the guide provides a lesson-by-lesson framework for studying some of the major works of ancient literature – The Epic of Gilgamesh, The Odyssey, Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone. Using an inductive approach, the student is encouraged to use three steps – observation, interpretation, and application – in coming to an understanding of the literary piece. Only after spending some time reading, absorbing, and comprehending the selection does the student seek to discover what others have said about it. The goal is for the student to be able and prepared to evaluate the opinions of others because they have formed their own thoughts first as opposed to just internalizing what others have thought and written.

    The course is divided into 24 lessons, each one taking about a week to complete. This is just about right for the literature component of a high school English course. You could easily lengthen the course to encompass the entire school year (30 or 36 weeks) by inserting writing assignments between the sections. As an example, let's look at the study of Oedipus Rex, which starts with some background information on the Greek Theater. This is to bring the student "up to speed" so to speak and includes all the basic information that a Greek theater-goer would know – such things as the story of Oedipus, how the play is organized, and who appears in the play. There are five lessons covering this reading selection, each organized similarly. First is a list of People and Places along with vocabulary that the student is expected to be able to identify and define. Then follows some reading sections, each accompanied by a set of comprehension questions (i.e. who, what, describe, how, etc.) An early lesson in the series gives some instruction on a literary analysis device – Dramatic Irony – and subsequent lessons ask the student to look for examples. In the second lesson in the series, an Overview Chart is introduced. The student uses this graphic organizer to identify and organize the main events and characters from the play. The series of lessons concludes with an in-depth Essay Question. The course includes four lessons on biblical literature and the Epic of Gilgamesh, four on The Odyssey, five lessons on Oedipus, five on Antigone (please note that both Sophocles' Antigone and the twentieth century play by Jean Anouilh are studied), and a final summary lesson.

    The text is designed as a consumable student workbook providing space to write the short essay answers to the comprehension/discussion questions. It could easily be used as a non-consumable by having the student keep answers in a separate binder/notebook. There are no answers given or an answer key. The parent/teacher is encouraged to be a participant along with the student in completing the readings and discussions. Although I understand this rationale and even agree that this approach is optimum, nevertheless, speaking as a mom, I would have appreciated some talking points.

    Compared to some, this is a relaxed study. This should not be interpreted as "lightweight." There's plenty here – both in organization and in the literature selections and discussion – to provide a challenging examination of ancient literature. One of the best features of the entire course is the fact that it starts with a four-lesson study of Daniel (the literature and culture of the Babylonians) and Genesis (creation, flood, and Tower of Babel) in order to assure that the student is well-grounded in biblical events and principles. Another excellent feature is the final worldview lesson. Although most ancient literature is the literature of pagans, this study provides the biblical grounding to make certain the study is profitable.

    Although a specific book list is not provided, it's obvious that specific versions of these works are being referenced because of the page numbers given throughout the lessons. ~ Janice

    An all around guide to creation science, I was impressed with the wide variety of subjects the book touches on. Using a fairly common question to start off each chapter, it then delves into various subjects for detailed answers. For example, the book starts off with the question, "Is There Really a God?" It then talks about how order is always taken as a sign of a creator and how information can't really rise from non information. The questions range from such creation-related topics as the doom of dinosaurs, gap & ruin reconstruction theory, distant starlight, why Christians shouldn't accept billions of years, and hybrid theories. The questions are approached scientifically, biblically, and logically. Clear, relatively concise answers mean that this book is kind of a crash course in Intelligent Design. While there are books that deal specifically with fossils, or specifically with hybrid creation/evolution theories, this is an excellent book to get you in the loop with creation science. Written by Ken Ham and various creation scientists, it is 378 pgs, softcover. A revised and updated edition of the Answers Book. ~ Mark
