For the first time, read about the compelling lives of fifty Christian heroines.
Radiant records the triumph of the gospel as Christian women faced kings and governors, soldiers and wild beasts, Japanese guards and Muslim raiders, fire, exile, Nazis, cannibals, riots, and more. “Look to heaven and forsake the world” has been their cry for two thousand years, and in Christ these women became invincible. From South America to Europe, from China to Africa to the Wild West, in prisons and in throne rooms, the Christian heroines of Radiant have left a stunning legacy.
These short and moving biographies for young people introduce fifty often unfamiliar champions of the faith: women like Ida Kahn, who opened the first hospital in a Chinese city of 300,000 people; Lady Anne Hamilton, who rode with the Covenanter cavalry at the decisive Battle of Berwick; and Anngrace Taban, who was forced to type secret battle plans for the Sudan People’s Liberation Army.
Praise for RADIANT:
“Through these robust and hearty profiles Richard Hannula brings to life fifty women of faith who helped shape church history. His interest is authentic, his research is solid, and his admiration is genuine.” –Joel Belz, founder of World Magazine
The Gospels are a fourfold portrait of Jesus.
Deftly guiding readers through “the four,” Peter Leithart delves into both the unique perspective of each gospel and their unifying witness to Jesus. The gospels are riddled with themes and types; Leithart reveals them and explains the Old Testament prophecies that intertwine with these apostolic books, as well as their underlying literary structures. He discusses the dating of the books, showing how the timeline of the four gospels lace together, and lays out Israel’s history leading up to John the Baptist’s birth.
For anyone navigating the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, The Four will give you your bearings.
“It used to be that the pastor’s wife was huge and the sanctuary was smokin’ hot.” So observes the Church Curmudgeon, the internet’s most infamous purveyor of fine vintage whines. With more than nine thousand tweets and ninety thousand followers, he’s proven himself a stalwart of holy hilarity. This poetic collection of the Curmudgeon’s best 140-character compositions will make you ROFL as you recognize the regular cast of churchy characters, including the worship leader, the usher team, and maybe even yourself. One more to whet your appetite: “Usually when the writing is on the wall, it portends the death of a culture. But hey, fine, throw out the hymnals and use a projector.”
Author bio: Church Curmudgeon is the old guy who sits on the back pew of the sanctuary, farthest from the drums (he measured). You can find his complaints on Twitter (@ChrchCurmudgeon) and Facebook.
Imagine where the Church would be today if the men in it were respected as they ought to be by their wives. What power would God unleash through godly men who were respected in their homes?
In this short book, Nancy Wilson exhorts wives to stop focusing on their husbands’ problems and shortcomings and to look at their own responsibilities and learn the contentment which the Bible continually exhorts us to.
This book is part of the Canon Press series of books on the family, which has helped many people trying to deal with the on the ground messes that come with sinners living under the same roof. This book on marriage for women reminds us to keep our eyes fixed on what the Bible defines as our duties and not on the modern lies which flatter us.
We live in a time when marital fidelity is under assault. Driven by the forces of relativism, our society assaults sexual fidelity on numerous fronts. The push for homosexual marriages, for example, come at the end of the fall into perversion, not the beginning. Faithless husbands began the fall long ago, and our culture, with all its washed-out self-help books, fails to address the real problem – sin.
Addressed to men, Fidelity hits hard, using clear language, focusing on specific sins with specific solutions: adultery, divorce, polygamy, celibacy, pornography, and more. But in the end, the antidote to all sexual temptation is simple – the godly honoring of the marriage bed: “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” (Heb. 13.4)
“Everyone is so busy giving the classical education to the students that I’m not sure people have taken the time to actually tell them why it matters…”
Rebekah Merkle knows which high school classes you like and which you roll your eyes at, which books you enjoy and which you kinda skim. That’s because she went through this whole thing called classical education, too: She was a guinea pig in one of the very first classical Christian schools in the country.
Written for students by a (former) student, Classical Me, Classical Thee is lighthearted and — most importantly for you busy high-schoolers — very short. It has a simple goal: to explain why you students are doing what you do in class. (SPOILER: Grades aren’t the point — you won’t use your knowledge of the Iliad Book 5 every year until you die.)
What you do in class is a drill — and nobody drills for the sake of the drill. You do drills so that you can win the game. The real tragedy, though, would be if you didn’t know you were doing drills… or didn’t know there was a game at all.
Grades aren’t the point. So drill to win.
“I don’t pull punches or hold back in this book, because I am writing to myself as much as to you. If something in this book strikes a little close to home for you, know that it struck in my home first. I am not writing about other people’s problems, although I know many of them are common. I write about what I know, and what I know is the challenges, the joys, and the work involved in raising little people.”
In this follow up to Loving the Little Years, Rachel Jankovic pushes her parenting “field notes” out onto the skinny branches of motherhood. Fit to Burst is chock-full of humorous examples and fresh advice covering issues familiar to every mom such as guilt cycles, temptations to be ungrateful or bitter, and learning how to honor Jesus by giving in the mundane things. But this book also addresses less familiar topics, including the impact that moms have on the relationships between dads and kids, the importance of knowing when to laugh at kid-sized sin, and more. Fit to Burst will help us to be moms who parent with the story in mind rather than snapshot, who know how to both give and require much from their children in the everyday mayhem, and who understand the importance of biscuits.
