Parents Who Love Reading, Kids Who Don’t: How it Happens and What You Can Do About It.

Mary Leonhardt

This book is a treasure chest waiting for you to open. The author admits that even children who have been read to since they could sit up may not love reading, and this unloads the burden of guilt that many of us have been carrying around for years. Leonhardt also provides many concrete suggestions for parents and teachers. This book is a must for all homes and schools.

Angelina Harrison

You read to your children when they were small. You took them to the library. You bought them books at the bookstore. You love books yourself and read all the time. How did you get children who would rather clean up their rooms than read a book?
Mary Leonhardt’s book describes why children have stopped reading, and what you can do to awaken a love of reading. She describes the stages children go through when they are coming to books, and coaches you in how to move your children through the stages.
This is an updated, revised edition. When this book was first published in 1993, Doris Kearns Goodwin called it “a small masterpiece that should be treasured by every parent.”

Cell's Design, The (Reasons to Believe): How Chemistry Reveals the Creator's Artistry

Cell’s Design, The (Reasons to Believe): How Chemistry Reveals the Creator’s Artistry

Fazale Rana

I just finished. Thanks for the engaging read, Dr. Rana. Some really good points, and the thumbnail tour through the workings of the cell was excellent. With your permission, I would like to photocopy some of the sections for use in my honors high school biology classes.

D. G. Frank

Armed with cutting-edge techniques, biochemists have unwittingly uncovered startling molecular features inside the cell that compel only one possible conclusion–a supernatural agent must be responsible for life. Destined to be a landmark apologetic work, The Cell’s Design explores the full scientific and theological impact of these discoveries. Instead of focusing on the inability of natural processes to generate life’s chemical systems (as nearly all apologetics works do), Fazale Rana makes a positive case for life’s supernatural basis by highlighting the many biochemical features that reflect the Creator’s hallmark signature.
This breakthrough work extends the case for design beyond irreducible complexity. These never-before-discussed evidences for design will evoke awe and amazement at God’s creative majesty in the remarkable elegance of the cell’s chemistry.

The Soul Survivor

The Soul Survivor

Joe Townsend

A warm and moving story about Captain Joe Townsend who not only overcomes what would seem to have been an impossible set of circumstances, he thrives. And it’s also a lesson that brings home the point that you never know what amazing new directions your life can take when you say hello to the person in the seat next to you on an airplane flight!

Kate S. Holgate

This book is inspirational and serious because it is about a real life accident and overcoming adversity. Even though those are heavy topics- it is also important for us to capture Joe’s unique personality and sense of humor. It adds to the message we are trying to deliver.

Overview – and how this book is different!

The purpose of Soul Survivor is to tell the real life story of Joe Townsend, who was flying one day with his family and due to mechanical failure – the small plane he was piloting crashed- killing Joe’s wife and two small daughters. Joe was critically injured and survived brain injury, a stroke, hours of surgery and months of physical and emotional pain to survive and then to thrive. Through grit and determination, he then began to rebuild a new life. This inspirational real life tale of overcoming adversity will get people to realize their own true potential. When they read this story, they will understand that if one man can overcome this kind of horrific adversity, then anything in life is possible. There are no limits.

Why Your Weirdness Is Wonderful: Embrace Your Quirks and Live Your Strengths

Why Your Weirdness Is Wonderful: Embrace Your Quirks and Live Your Strengths

Laurie Wallin

I like this book. It really helped me understand why I have the quirky traits I do and how to use them for God’s glory. This book has also helped me appreciate the quirks in others. I am learning that, rather than be irritated, I want to embrace their weirdness and watch how God is using it. If you want to understand your weirdness and be more loving toward your weird friends, read this book.

Joan N.

What if who you are right now is exactly who God meant you to be? What if the weirdest, most annoying things about you are actually—for a purpose?

Often we lament about how we relate to God and to the world. We over-think things, worry too much, put things off, argue too much, talk too much, or any number of other griefs. We fight who we are and beg God to make us different.

But what if our greatest strength, biggest gift, and most potential is hidden in the very thing we seek to hide from the rest of the world: our weirdness?

In Why Your Weirdness Is Wonderful, author and certified life coach Laurie Wallin reveals strategies for anyone struggling to find a calling or to find and live their dream. It teaches us to stop fighting ourselves and start following God, not just in spite of, but by embracing our “weirdness.

Raising Cain: How the Bible Shapes the Things You Say

Raising Cain: How the Bible Shapes the Things You Say

Wayne Harvey

Don’t judge this book by its cover because you might think it’s about raising kids. The subtitle “How the Bible Shapes the Things You Say” actually explains what’s inside. Each term or phrase is listed alphabetically, easy to look up, and gives insights into many of the words we use today. This is great resource for pastors and those who love to go deeper into Bible study.

Book Fan

“Beside oneself,” “as old as the hills,” “the kiss of death,” “see eye to eye,” and “raising Cain” are all expressions most English speakers understand and use in conversation. If you asked someone what these phrases have in common, few would be able to say that they all come from the Bible.

Even in a secular, post-Christian age the imprint of the Bible, and especially the King James Version, is pervasive and profound. A distinguished professor of literature has said, “the King James Version of the Bible is the most influential English book ever printed.” Its themes have influenced the arts, constitutions, laws, and everyday language.

In Raising Cain. Dr. Wayne Harvey provides fascinating documen- tation of the echoes of the King James Bible on the tongues of and in the writings of 21st century English speakers.

His entry on “Raising Cain” shows how this treasury of biblical expressions works:

Raise Cain (See also “Cain and Abel” and “Cain, Mark of”)

To create a disturbance. One sense of raise in old English is to conjure up. To raise Cain is to bring up or express the spirit of Cain.

But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him (Genesis 4:5-7).

David S. Dockery

Anyone who cares about Christian higher education must have this book!

Julius L McCarter

Faith and learning, scholarship and piety, Christian tradition and intellectual inquiry, head and hearts: How do these things come together in an informative, enriching, and interdependent way?

The calling of Christian higher education is to reflect the life of Christ and to shine the light of truth. That distinctive mission cannot be forced into an either/or framework but rather a both/and calling. It is a commitment to Jesus Christ himself, who is both fully God and fully human and who for Christian educators is both light and life.

This multi-authored volume, with dynamic contributions from entry-level faculty members to seasoned scholars, explores the question of the Christian faith’s place on the university campus, whether in administrative matters, the broader academic world, or in student life.

Philosophy, Sociology, Science, Arts, Business, Media; Faith and Learning explores how significant Christian thinkers have addressed such topics and their related issues throughout the history of the church. The historical, theological, and biblical framework will help students interact with and engage contemporary challenges to the Christian faith in the various fields of study and inquiry.

Contributors include Harry L. Poe, Gene C. Fant, Jr., Ken Magnuson, Klaus Issler, Gregory A. Thornbury, Taylor Worley, John T. Netland, Scott Huelin, James A. Patterson, Hunter Baker, Roman R.
