23638EB: Daughters of Faith Set #1 (four books) - eBookDaughters of Faith Set #1 (four books) - eBook
By Wendy Lawton / Moody Publishers

This package includes four books of the Daughters of Faith Series Set 1: The Captive PrincessShadow of his HandThe Tinker's Daughter, and Almost Home.

There are a few elements of the Daughters of Faith Series that separate it from many other children's book biographies. First, these books are about little girls. They are not biographies of the entire life of these characters- these are stories about girls who made a difference while they were still young. This enables the young girl readers to relate to the characters more than they would if these characters had to wait until they were thirty or forty before doing anything significant. Second, these stories are faith journeys. Lawton gets inside the minds of these girls in order to portray their struggles to make God an active part of their lives.

In The Captive Princess, once upon a time there was an Algonquin princess named Pocahontas, a curious 10-year-old who loved exploring the tidewater lands of her people. One day she encounters strangers, a group of people that look different from her own. She befriends them, and when her people come into conflict with these new settlers, Pocahontas steps in to save the life of one of them by offering her own. Based on the true story of Pocahontas' early life.

This package includes four books of the Daughters of Faith Series Set 2: Freedom's PenCourage to RunThe Hallelujah Lass, and Ransom's Mark.

There are a few elements of the Daughters of Faith Series that separate it from many other children's book biographies. First, these books are about little girls. They are not biographies of the entire life of these characters- these are stories about girls who made a difference while they were still young.

Second, these stories are faith journeys. Lawton gets inside the minds of these girls in order to portray their struggles to make God an active part of their lives.

In The Hallelujah Lass, Lawton tells the story of Eliza Shirley, a 16-year-old girl who traveled from England to pioneer the work of the Salvation Army in the United States. As a teenager growing up in nineteenth-century England, Eliza was the picture of a proper young lady. But she longed for more than an ordinary, middle-class life. When a group of Hallelujah Lassies marches into Coventry with a ragtag bunch of followers, singing and banging tabourines, even ensuing riots cannot keep Eliza away. She knows, at last, that this is the work God has prepared for her. And she is ready, no matter what the cost.

As Lottie Moon watched her fellow missionaries fall to disease, exhaustion, mental breakdowns, and death, she became just as dedicated to educating Christians about the often preventable tragedies of missionary life as she was to educating Chinese people about the Christian life.

For ages 10 and up.

821646: Beyond Stateliest Marble: The Passionate Femininity of Anne BradstreetBeyond Stateliest Marble: The Passionate Femininity of Anne Bradstreet
By Douglas Wilson / Cumberland House

As was true of the seventeenth-century Puritans, Anne Bradstreet was a colorful, lively, passionate, artful, and delightful person who took great relish in life and reveled in the earthly manifestations of beauty, goodness, and truth. Born in Lincolnshire, England, she moved to the Massachusetts Bay Colony with her husband, Simon Bradstreet, in 1630. A Puritan through and through, she imbibed from the deep wells of Puritan thought all her life. She not only accepted the social, cultural, and political mores of those Puritan stalwarts without hesitation, she embraced them with gusto. It was within that context and out of that milieu that she produced America's first great literary works. "Beyond Stateliest Marble" affords us a fascinating glimpse into the life and labors of a gifted poet and a startling reassessment of the Puritan world and its impact on the founding of America. Thus it is a welcome addition to the annals of Christian moral philosophy and a resplendent reminder of this literary legacy.

A Heart Promptly Offered: The Revolutionary Leadership of John Calvin  For Grades 3 - 12

825056: A Heart Promptly Offered: The Revolutionary Leadership of John Calvin

A Heart Promptly Offered: The Revolutionary Leadership of John Calvin
By David Hall / Cumberland House

This introduction to the life, leadership, and thought of John Calvin presents the Geneva Reformer in his own words, unedited by the selective biases of hostile---and customarily uninformed---critics. In the process, it gives a fair and honest hearing to one of the most significant shapers of modern culture.

Few today realize that John Calvin led pioneering efforts to decentralize government by calling for checks and balances against the rule of the few or the king. Equally unknown are his efforts to establish a productive social safety-net for immigrants, create educational models that were far ahead of his time, and instill a sense of self-worth in all citizens (regardless of their occupations or class). He was also known for his support of free markets, the rise of private enterprise, and the advancement of publishing and knowledge beyond its medieval confines. The result of his efforts was an explosion of culture and liberty--a story that often is lost or ignored in the rush to offer criticism of the man.

A Heart Promptly Offered presents the basic story of Calvin's life, along with numerous excerpts from his own pen---writings from his letters, commentaries, and sermons. In addition to summarizing the main topics of Calvin's Institutes, it lays out his ground-breaking political theory, which is an unparalleled contribution to human freedom.

In addition to glimpses into his personal life, it also includes much about his friendships, his struggles, and his literary interests. The result is a nontechnical volume that introduces the life, character, and legacy of John Calvin---one of the most significant figures in history.

Mornings on Horseback - Audiobook on CD
By David McCullough / Simon & Schuster

Winner of the 1982 National Book Award for Biography, this audiobook is the brilliant biography of the young Theodore Roosevelt. Hailed as a masterpiece by Newsday, it is the story of a remarkable little boy--seriously handicapped by recurrent and nearly fatal attacks of asthma--and his struggle to manhood.

His father--the first Theodore Roosevelt, "Greatheart,"--is a figure of unbounded energy, enormously attractive and selfless, a god in the eyes of his small, frail namesake. His mother--Mittie Bulloch Roosevelt--is a Southerner and celebrated beauty.Mornings on Horesback spans seventeen years--from 1869 when little "Teedie" is ten, to 1886 when he returns from the West a "real life cowboy" to pick up the pieces of a shattered life and begin anew, a grown man, whole in body and spirit.This is a tale about family love and family loyalty...about courtship, childbirth and death, fathers and sons...about gutter politics and the tumultuous Republican Convention of 1884...about grizzly bears, grief and courage, and "blessed" mornings on horseback at Oyster Bay or beneath the limitless skies of the Badlands.

By Stephen Mansfield / Cumberland House

According to Henry Kissinger, "Our age finds it difficult to come to grips with Churchill. The political leader with whom we are familiar generally aspire to be superstars rather than heroes. The distinction is crucial. Superstars strive for approbation; heroes walk alone. Superstars crave consensus; heroes define themselves by the judgment of a future they see it as their task to bring about. Superstars seek success in a technique for eliciting support; heroes pursue success as the outgrowth of their inner values."

Winston Churchill was a hero. In this incisive look at his leadership in action we see what it was that enabled him to do what few others have ever accomplished in the long annals of history: stand for principal and prevail. Recommended for ages 10 and up. 233 pages, hardcover, from Highland books.

Sir Isaac Newton is one of history's most renowned scientists. He independently developed the mathematical technique known as Calculus, wrote a treatise on the properties of light and color that is still consulted by scientists, and worked out the mathematical details of the law of gravity. What is less well known is the depth of his Christian faith, and the amount of writing, speaking, and research he devoted to defenses of the tenets of Biblical belief. This book makes Newton come alive for readers. From the detailed account of the events that led to his conversion, his Christian faith plays a central role in this biography, as it did in his life. 137 pages, softcover. Ages 9-12.

As a young boy, Thomas Alva Edison always wanted to know the answer to the question "Why?" At the age of ten, he set up his first scientific laboratory in the basement of his home.

Thomas Edison grew up to become a brilliant inventor. He began his amazing career improving the telegraph, and went on to invent the light bulb, motion pictures, and the phonograph. He installed New York City's first electrical system, and he made improvements in almost every means of communication in use today. Here is the lively story of the genius who forever changed life in the twentieth century - and beyond.
