When a thing is worthwhile doing, we sometimes say, "Go for it!" In the Bible, many people wanted to please God, while plenty of others wanted their own way instead of God's. Author Derek Prime calls them Gofors and Grumps. All the letters in the alphabet are used to describe Bible characters--from Mr. Afraid (Adam) through Mr. Zoo-Keeper (Noah)--showing children how we can learn from their lives. It is full of useful learning exercises to occupy younger readers. There is a bible dictionary in each section, together with maps and fact boxes, all well presented and superbly illustrated in black and white. An ideal gift for teaching the young. Recommended for ages 7 to 12.
The year is 1605 and England is in crisis as terrorists plot to blow up the King Royal Family and Parliament in one gigantic explosion in Westminster If the plot had succeeded then England Europe and the subsequent history of the world would have been very different for there would have been no King James Bible no Pilgrim Fathers and the dominant language of the world would probably have become Spanish. On the fourhundredth anniversary of the Plot read how powerful nations and famous figures of history were caught up in the unfolding drama. It affected every area of life and William Shakespeares plays King Lear and Macbeth reflected the crisis the country had passed through. This event is one that should not be forgotten and many leading Christians down the ages have looked upon its foiling as God's gracious intervention in the affairs of men.
