The year is 1525 and books written by reformers like Martin Luther are being burned all over Europe. For Tom Barton, who smuggles such books into England, the ban is an opportunity to make money. But when Tom meets William Tyndale, who defies the king and distributes Bibles to the common people, he realizes that the Reformation is more than a money-maker and that spreading God's Word is worth risking one's life. Recommended for ages 10 to 14.
After witnessing his father's crucifixion by Roman soldiers, Daniel bar Jamin is fired by a single passion: to avenge his father's death by driving the Roman legions form the land of Israel. Consumed by hatred, Daniel joins the brutal raids of an outlaw band living in the hills outside his village. Though his grandmother's death slows his plans by forcing him to move home to care for his sister, he continues his dangerous life by leading a group of boy guerrillas in spying and plotting, impatiently waiting to take revenge.

Karl Schumacher was fifteen when he came to the German city of Wittenberg in 1520 seeking an education. He had been very fortunate that the esteemed university professor, Doctor Martin Luther, had taken him into his household as a servant. Luther's promise of tutoring Karl in exchange for his labor was the chance of a lifetime, until a poster on the church door declared his master a heretic! Karl is asked to travel with Doctor Luther to appear before the emperor's Imperial Council in the city of Worms. Will his life be at stake as well as Luther's? And who is the mysterious young lady who shadows their trip? Could she be a spy for Luther's enemy, Doctor Eck? Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
Witness the life of Martin Luther in a completely new way-a graphic novel style. This biography of Martin Luther is visually appealing with its comic book illustrations depicting major moments in this religious hero's life. This is the story of one man who headed a revolution that changed the world. From a small town in medieval Germany, the Reformation resulted in dramatic, sweeping change that still echoes to all corners of the world today.

But circumstances change and he finds himself working in Gutenberg's shop as an apprentice printer. Soon, Hans finds himself in the middle of a type-stealing mystery. Herr Fust, the village banker, wants Gutenberg's type and tries every possible way to get his hands on it. Gutenberg is deep in debt and has borrowed from everyone in town. Gutenberg is sure that he will be able to pay everyone back one the Bible is printed, but he is running out of time. Will they be able to finish the Bible so many people will be able to read and learn from it?

A brilliant way to integrate church history into your children's understanding from their youth! In the familiar A is for apple format, here each initial provides the opportunity to dive into a short biographical paragraph on 26 famous men and women in church history; A for Saint Augustine, B for Anne Bradstreet, C for John Calvin. Photos of historic portraits, artifacts, and first-letter-related items provide additional visual interest. This wide range of characters reflects the breadth of church history and reminds children that these great figures were once living, breathing people who lived and died for the glory of God. 34 pages, hardcover.
Scripture says Jesus rose from the dead---but is there convincing evidence to support this belief? Similar in style to the popular Ologies series, this interactive book pairs creative graphics with the easy-to-understand "minimal facts argument" to show how only the biblical story can be true---and why other theories come up short. For middle schoolers to adults.
This book outlines the thrilling story of the onward march of the Church of Christ from the earliest times to the end of the nineteenth century. It is not a dry-as-dust account of long-forgotten events and controversies, but rather a moving record of those who undertook the adventure of faith before us and, through their courage and steadfastness, left an example for the church in every age. Reading of the exploits of those who have gone before us, through times of prosperity and times of persecution, should stimulate, warn and encourage the church in our own age to persevere in the same path, and obtain the same everlasting reward.
Since its first appearance in 1980, Sketches from Church History by S. M. Houghton has been a firm favorite with those seeking an overview of the onward march of the church of Christ from its earliest days to the end of the nineteenth century. "Here at last," said one reviewer, "is a book which makes church history enjoyable." More recently Sketches has become established as a textbook in Christian schools and among home-schooling families. Now teachers and home-schoolers have a new tool to make Sketches even more useful: a workbook by Rebecca Frawley. Complete with a course syllabus, questions and answers, charts, time lines, maps, puzzles, and essay topics, this workbook will be an invaluable companion. It is spiral-bound for ease of use.
Christianity is a faith in love with history. God took on human flesh and dwelt among us. The Spirit carried that divine work over the centuries, providing courage and maturity even amid our imperfections. Christians find their true family line not through tribes and ethnic blood but in the bond of faithfulness and shed blood that has united our family for millennia. We too often view Church history as the story of obscure aliens instead of the lives of brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers.

The Gothic cathedral is one of man's most magnificent expressions as well as one of his grandest architectural achievements. Built to the glory of God, each cathedral was created by the ingenuity, skill, and hard work of generations of dedicated people.
This richly illustrated book shows the intricate step-by-step process of a cathedral's growth. The plan is agreed on; the site is chosen; each craftsman's contribution is presented; his tools and materials are described. The details of the construction are graphically explained from the building of the foundation and the erection of the walls through the details of the flying buttresses, vaulting, and roofing, on to the completion of the towers and the casting of the bells.
The grandeur of the cathedral unfolds through the book until finally the reader shares with the townspeople of Chutreaux a sense of wonder at the power of their creation. Recommended for ages 9 and up. A 1974 Caldecott Honor book.
