The Light and the Glory for Children : Discovering God’s Plan for America from Christopher Columbus to George Washington
From the very beginning it would seem that God had a plan for America. From its discovery by Europeans to its settlement, from the Revolution to Manifest Destiny, from the stirrings of civil unrest to civil war, America was on a path. In our pluralistic world, when textbooks are being rewritten in ways that obscure the JudeoChristian beginnings of our country, the books in the Discovering God’s Plan for America series help ground young readers in a distinctly evangelical way of understanding early American history. As young readers look at their nation’s development from God’s point of view, they will begin to have a clearer idea of how much we owe to a very fewand how much is still at stake. These engaging books bring history alive in a way that will inspire young people to do their important part in shaping this nation into the future.

The Threat of Islam to Liberty and Christianity
Islam is one of the two greatest external threats to Christianity in the twenty-first century. Statism is the other. Though not as old as statism, Islam has been at war with Christianity since its inception by Mohammad in the seventh century. This booklet provides a brief overview of the history of Islam and its teachings in order to give proper context to this very grave danger that the free world and the Christian faith faces. The historical overview of Islam presented here—which includes the Crusades, important battles stopping Islam’s spread throughout Europe, and Muslims’ influence in American history—reveals that its aggressive expansion and conflict with Christianity are normal. The ideological and worldview comparison of Christianity and Islam shows that Christianity produces liberty, while Islam brings oppression. Many questions are also answered, such as: Is Islam a religion of peace? How should America deal with Islamic terrorists? What can we do regarding the threat of Islam to the Christian faith? Finally, there is good news: God is moving among many Muslims to bring them to Christ.
The War of the Worlds
The War of the Worlds (1898), by H. G. Wells, is an early science fiction novel which describes an invasion of England by aliens from Mars. It is one of the earliest and best-known depictions of an alien invasion of Earth, and has influenced many others, as well as spawning several films, radio dramas, comic book adaptations, and a television series based on the story. The 1938 radio broadcast caused public outcry against the episode, as many listeners believed that an actual Martian invasion was in progress, a notable example of mass hysteria.
The Wartime Sermons of Dr. Peter Marshall
Scottish-born Dr. Peter Marshall inmmigrated to America in 1927. During the next twenty-two years, before his untimely death in 1949 at the age of forty-six, he became one of the nation’s most famous preachers, pastor of Washington, D.C’s historic New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, and Chaplain of the U.S. Senate. His wife, author Catherine Marshall, wrote his best-selling biography, “A Man Called Peter”, which was subsequently made into the much-heralded 1955 movie.
“The Wartime Seromons of Dr.Peter Marshall” includes many of his most sought-after messages delivered during World War II. Today, as we continue to face a war against global terrorism during the aftermath of September 11, 2001, these wartime sermons, preached more than fifty years ago, have never been more timely, appropriate, or desperately needed. This dynamic book of sermons and prayers should be kept nearby during these challenging times.
Tirzah’s people, the Israelites, have been in slavery to the Egyptians for many years. Tirzah and her lame brother, Oren, help gather straw to make bricks. She observes the suffering of her people and the injustices that are done to them by the Egyptian police. Moses begs Pharaoh to let them go, but Pharaoh makes them work harder.
One night, when the plague of death strikes down Pharaoh’s own son, he allows the Israelites to flee on foot, only to pursue them with horses and chariots. He believes he will have them trapped between the mountains and the sea, but God miraculously delivers them. The Israelites celebrate with a song of hope and victory. Tirzah befriends a young Egyptian girl who has fled with them, even though others treat her badly. In spite of hardship and disappointment, Tirzah and her family keep trusting Yahweh to carry them through.
Trial & Triumph
“Thus says the LORD: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls”(Jer. 6:16).
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.
In this collection of forty-six brief biographies for children, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and C.S. Lewis. Through them we can begin to enjoy the old paths and find rest for our souls.
Unwrapping the Pharoahs

War of the Worldviews
What do aliens, dinosaurs, and gay marriage have in common?
They are all part of the culture war – a war between two worldviews. One view is based on a biblical understanding of history, the other on pure naturalism. Our educational institutions and the media are on the front lines of evolutionizing our culture. From Biology 101 to World History, from The Learning Channel to Sponge Bob, subtle and not-so-subtle evolutionary messages bombard us.
We witness the battles and skirmishes of this war in our schools, our courts and our homes. All around us are casualties of the warfare – Christians taken captive by an evolutionary philosophy. The idea of the big ban g and millions of years has duped many Christians and its effects include a deficient gospel and subjective morality.
How are we to respond when we hear of the latest “argument” for evolution? How can we prepare our children to face the evolutionary indoctrination of our public schools and universities? What are we to make of “Christian” organizations who teach the big bang and millions of years? How can we build a truly biblical worldview?
In this powerful book, you will find ammunition for the war: answers to some of the most common arguments for evolution, analyses of Christian compromise positions and a call for return to the true biblical authority.
