There isn't a lot for kids on church fathers, so I was excited to incorporate this series "Heroes of the Faith" into our year on church history. The illustrations are good, and the tie in with the other two books in the series (Ignatius and Polycarp) ...more

Odden begins her historical fiction approach to Valentinus with a two page introduction describing the sourcing and verifyable facts surrounding this Saint that has become a Western cultural icon. I appreciate that, and the bibliography of works at t ...more

This book came to my attention through two separate experiences in teaching middle ages history and literature. The first was reading Cervantes classic Don Quixote, which created an entirely new historical fiction genre. Cervantes alludes to the devo ...more

We NEED a good dialectic text of Church History. This work is a disappointing recommendation of many home school programs. SOMEONE, please write it!

Nabeel Qureshi died in September of 2017, at age 34. His loss to cancer, at such a young age, was a stunning tragedy. Calls for prayer had gone out on Twitter, through Facebook, and numerous ministries across the web (notably Ravi Zacharias Ministrie ...more

I hit a bump with this title in the series. I saw it coming, but honestly, I’m a bit disappointed.

The book opens with Halt, an introduction which I found belabored. Winding story lines that delighted me in earlier books seemed tedious in The Battle f

Trudging through the cold winter snows of Scandia in The Icebound Land may not be the best to keep you warm on winter nights, although it will reinforce the snow swept setting of Book 3 in the Ranger's Apprentice series.

“It is implied in the New Testament vision that Christianity is not a culture-creating thing but rather a culture-influencing one... there can never be such a thing as a Christian culture; there can only be cultures in which the influence of Christianity is more or less apparent.The New Testament vision does not pit a "Christian culture" against a non-Christian culture; rather does it introduce a leavening into any existing culture into which it insinuates itself, a leaven whereby that already existing culture is then affected.... The New Testament's idea of societal compositism is the only real alternative to the stultifying ideologies that have given rise to the modern optionless and option forbidding totalitarian states.”
Leonard Verduin, The Reformers and Their Stepchildren

Amity Shlaes
“Hoover had also created a Division of Simplified Practices, whose job it was to standardize and harmonize the distressinly fractious and unresponsible manufacturing and construction sectors. In those days roads were often still paved in brick, and brick was a typical example: sixty-six different sizes were being produced by manufacturers when Hoover ordered research on the topic. This was sheer waste, as far as the utilitarian Hoover was concerned. He therefore pulled the nation's paving-brick firms into a room and settled the matter; the range of sizes dropped from sixty-six to eleven. Emboldened, Hoover also looked into brick for homes; here he claimed victoryoutright, for the number of sizes went "from forty-four to one," the praiseful Irvin reported. Then there were beds. Seventy-four different sizes were available; as a result of encouragement from Hoover, the figure went down to four" (page 37)”

Nabeel Qureshi
“This book is dedicated to my parents, Ami and Abba. Your undying love for me, even when you feel I have sinned against you, is second only to God's love for His children. I pray you will one day realize His love is truly unconditional and that He has offered forgiveness to all. On that day, I pray that you would accept His redemption so we might be a family once again. I love you with all my heart.”
Nabeel Qureshi, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity

Leslie K. Wang
“...the PRC's stringent population control program has divided children into two opposing categories based on their perceived level of 'quality.' Although urban little emperors bear the heavy responsibility of building a glorious future for their country, a much larger number of youths from rural areas are viewed at best as a hindrance, and at worse as a dangerous threat, to Chinese modernization. The abandonment of 'unplanned children' relates directly to the PRC's quest to become a modern society and achieve 'material and moral parity with the West.'" pg. 30 Outsourced Children, Wang, 2016”
