    $14.95

    Enter into the shadows of the Roman catacombs where early Christians attended Mass and hid in fear from Roman soldiers seeking their death for refusing to renounce the Christian Faith.

    You’ll read dramatic acts of faith and courage as Fr. James Spencer Northcote, the world-renowned 19th-century expert on the catacombs, relates the intense belowground life of the catacombs.

    For over three centuries, Christians buried their dead in often elaborate crypts hollowed out for them underground by fossors designated diggers whose status was just below that of deacons and priests.

    With scores of maps and illustrations in these pages, you’ll see that the architecture of many crypts was as elaborate as buildings above-ground, creating under the streets and fields of Rome a second-cityindeed, a Christian city in the very heart of pagan Romegraced with broad underground tunnels and large rooms where assemblies could be held.

  • Wisdom Of The Beguines

    $14.95

    The beguines began to form in various parts of Europe over eight hundred years ago. Beguines were laywomen, not nuns, and they did not live in monasteries. They practiced a remarkable way of living independently, and they were never a religious order or a formalized movement. But there were common elements that these medieval women shared across Europe, including their visionary spirituality, their unusual business acumen, and their courageous commitment to the poor and sick. Beguines were essentially self-defined, in opposition to the many attempts to control and define them. They lived by themselves or in communities called beguinages, which could be single homes for just a few women or, as in Brugge, Brussels, and Amsterdam, walled-in rows of houses where hundreds of beguines lived togethera village of women within a medieval town or city.
    Among the beguines were celebrated spiritual writers and mystics, including Mechthild of Magdeburg, Beatrijs of Nazareth, Hadewijch, and Marguerite Poretewho was condemned as a heretic and burned at the stake in Paris in 1310. She was not the only beguine suspected of heresy, and often politics were the driving force behind such charges.
    The beguines, across the centuries, have left us a great legacy. They invite us to listen to their voices, to seek out their wisdom, to discover them anew. Continue Reading Wisdom Of The Beguines

  • Pilgrim Journey : A History Of Pilgrimage In The Western World

    $15.95

    Pilgrimage in the Western world is enjoying a growing popularity today, perhaps more so than at any time since the Middle Ages. Paths, trails, and roads once again greet spiritual travelers who seek out grand cathedrals and roadside chapels, mountain shrines and ancient abbeys, sacred wells and holy islands. Pilgrim destinations across Europe and in the Americas are visited as much for the physical journey they demand as for the spiritual power they radiate.
    The Pilgrim Journey tells the fascinating story of sacred travel in the West: how pilgrimage was born and grew in antiquity, how it blossomed in the Middle Ages and faltered in subsequent centuries, only to reemerge stronger than before in modern times. It describes the pilgrim routes and sacred destinations past and present, the men and women making the journey, the many challenges of travel, and the spiritual motivations and rewards. And it explores the traditional stages of pilgrimage, from preparation, departure, and the time on the road, to the arrival at the shrine and the return home.
    The Pilgrim Journey is both the colorful chronicle of numerous pilgrims of centuries past searching for heaven on earth and an illuminating guide for today’s spiritual traveler.

  • Great Men Bow Down

    $16.95

    SwordPoint Publishing

    The Post Modern culture of Globalism is slowly eradicating the history we have known and the heroes we have admired. As western culture concedes it place of prominence in world politics and levels the playing field to allow other cultures, religions and ideologies to rewrite our history books we will find that they are not as sympathetic to our Judeo Christian heritage. Great men like Columbus, Newton, Bacon, Washington, Einstein, Lombardi, and Eisenhower have been inspired by Jehovah God to explore, discover, invent, publish, manufacture and lead. Lawrence introduces each man with a powerful quote about the God of the Bible, and then paints a simple vignette of his life which quickly embeds his legacy in the mind of the reader. Turn the pages of history; be surprised and inspired by 150 stories of great achievement and great tribute, plus 700 quotes from over 300 notable personalities. The back of the book includes 2 chapters entitled: What You Believe and How You Pray – Seven Words of Transformation. Backbone of the Believer (what you believe) includes seven basic and memorable doctrines of the Christian faith. Reporting for Duty (how you pray) includes a model prayer based on an interpretative outline summary of Genesis 1:28. From kids to aging seniors, this book will inspire the reader and hopefully motivate a new generation to rise above the mediocrity of the age to serve the God of all ages. This book reminds the reader that truly great men always bow down to a Sovereign God. Continue Reading Great Men Bow Down

  • James 1 : The Fool As King

    $20.00

    This is the first of four volumes on extraordinary fools whose follies influenced the course of all our lives. Without them, history would have been different, and our lives would today be lived along patterns beyond our powers to imagine.

    James I and VI was a great fool. He threw away a tremendous inheritance and a superb opportunity for the basest of motives, while indulging himself in the comforts of the sewer. While bemusing his subjects with windy references to peace, he led them impotent disarmament before a crumbling Spain. Finally, he trained his doltish heir into a pattern of kingly behavior that provoked a civil war.

    Beyond that, James was a fool in the Biblical sense, in believing that there is no God. He called himself The Prince of Peace, and dreamed of sitting down with the Pope to rule the minds of all mankind. He spoke of his Divine Right in a transparent effort to ward away the fate of his mother, and finally, he sought the power of God over other men.

  • 1776

    $35.00

    America’s beloved and distinguished historian presents, in a book of breathtaking excitement, drama, and narrative force, the stirring story of the year of our nation’s birth, 1776, interweaving, on both sides of the Atlantic, the actions and decisions that led Great Britain to undertake a war against her rebellious colonial subjects and that placed America’s survival in the hands of George Washington.

    In this masterful book, David McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence-when the whole American cause was riding on their success, without which all hope for independence would have been dashed and the noble ideals of the Declaration would have amounted to little more than words on paper.

    Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, 1776 is a powerful drama written with extraordinary narrative vitality. It is the story of Americans in the ranks, men of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. And it is the story of the King’s men, the British commander, William Howe, and his highly disciplined redcoats who looked on their rebel foes with contempt and fought with a valor too little known.

    Written as a companion work to his celebrated biography of John Adams, David McCullough’s 1776 is another landmark in the literature of American history. Continue Reading 1776

Whether real or imagined, the past filtered through their collective memories has had and will continue to have enormous influence on how Jews and Arabs perceive themselves and each other. Jews and Muslims in the Arab World describes the ways in which the past is absorbed, internalized, and then processed among Jews and Arabs. The book stresses the importance of historical imagination on the current evolving political cultures, but does not claim that explanations from an ancient past shed light on every aspect of contemporary events.

    In examining one of the defining events of the 20th century, Doris Bergen situates the Holocaust in its historical, political, social, cultural, and military contexts. Unlike many other treatments of the Holocaust, this revised, second edition discusses not only the persecution of the Jews, but also other segments of society victimized by the Nazis: Gypsies, homosexuals, Poles, Soviet POWs, the handicapped, and other groups deemed undesirable. With clear and eloquent prose, Bergen explores the two interconnected goals that drove the Nazi program of conquest and genocide-purification of the so-called Aryan race and expansion of its living space-and discusses how these goals affected the course of World War II. Including firsthand accounts from perpetrators, victims, and eyewitnesses, the book is immediate, human, and eminently readable.

    Conclusion

    Additional Info
    Founded to give women a frontline role in the Zionist struggle for statehood, Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, first sent public health nurses to Palestine in 1913. Despite clashing with other Zionist organizations as it fought to keep control of its own projects, Hadassah grew to be the largest single American Zionist organization in the interwar period.

    Using original historical documents, Simmons examines Hadassah’s roots in the American Progressive movement, and assesses some of the American field-tested projects which Hadassah exported to Palestine including visiting nurses, school lunches, and playgrounds. Hadassah chose each project carefully with a view to developing an egalitarian, democratic Jewish state.

    Simmons also traces Hadassah’s involvement in the Youth Aliyah child rescue movement which saved thousands of youngsters from Nazi-occupied Europe, as well as from the beleaguered Jewish communities of the Middle East and North Africa. In the first decades of statehood, Youth Aliyah education tried to make Israelis out of young refugees from all over the world.

    Simmons offers a fresh perspective on Hadassah’s place in history and shows, for the first time, how American Jewish women played a leading role in achieving Zionist goals and shaping the Jewish state.

    The book is distinguished by its historical approach, rooted in the analysis of original archival material including publicity brochures, newsletters and correspondence, as well as the contemporary Zionist and mainstream American press. It is intended for students, scholars, and anyone interested in American Jewish history, Israeli history, women’s studies, Jewish women; the history of voluntarism, philanthropy, public health, social welfare, or child welfare; Progressivism, the history of Zionism and the development of the State of Israel; Diaspora-Israel relations; Jewish organizations; ethnic studies; emergence of the welfare state Continue Reading Hadassah And The Zionist Project

    Additional Info
    The study of early modern history has exploded in the last several decades. Many new historical sources have been identified and examined and a host of exciting studies, employing a wide range of innovative methodologies, have been produced. Scholars of Jewish history have begun to ask to what extent the early modern period had a Jewish dimension; they have also begun to reconsider the nature of traditional periodization of Jewish history. Jews in the Early Modern World attempts to synthesize some of this exciting new research and present it in a broader comparative and global perspective.

    Jews in the Early Modern World argues that the years between 1400 and 1700 represented a discrete, cohesive and important period in Jewish history. Given the significant demographic shifts that began just before and ended just after this period, remarkable changes occurred in the history and experiences of Jews around the world. This volume begins with a broad context of Jewish experiences under medieval Christianity and Islam. It then turns to the early modern period, first providing an overview of Jewish demography and settlement. Next, the nature and structure of Jewish community and social structures in the early modern period are explored. In the final two chapters, this book presents a broad overview of Jewish religious and cultural life and Jewish relations with non-Jews throughout the early modern period.

    Jews in the Early Modern World will serve as a useful resource for a wide range of courses in medieval and early modern history, Jewish history and world history. It includes a bibliography of English-language works cited, a wealth of suggestions for further reading, a glossary of terms, a timeline of key events, and numerous maps and images.

    Additional Info
    Many Christians and Jews believe that their faiths developed independently from each other, and that their religions are distinct, even antagonistic towards each other. A Portable God dramatically departs from the idea that the birth of Judaism and Christianity are two separate, unrelated events. Judaism and Christianity’s origins are not seen as following a linear, chronological process that places the Israelites in the beginning, followed by the Jews, and finally the Christians. On the contrary, A Portable God shows that both Judaism and Christianity emerge from the same religious tradition — that of ancient Israel — at the same time. By telling the common story of Jewish and Christian origins, A Portable God shows Jews and Christians as siblings, rather than as parent and child, showing that the similarities between Judaism and Christianity far outweigh their differences, ultimately fostering appreciation for the shared heritage of Judaism and Christianity.

    Projecting The Holocaust Into The 21st Century

    Additional Info
    Most Holocaust scholars and survivors contend that the event was so catastrophic and unprecedented that it defies authentic representation in feature films. Yet it is precisely the extremity of the Final Solution and the issues it raised that have fueled the cinematic imagination since the end of World War II. Recognizing that movies reach a greater audience than eyewitness, historical, or literary accounts, Lawrence Baron argues that they mirror changing public perceptions of the Holocaust over time and place. After tracing the evolution of the most commonly employed genres and themes in earlier Holocaust motion pictures, he focuses on how films from the l990s made the Holocaust relevant for contemporary audiences. While genres like biographical films and love stories about doomed Jewish-Gentile couples remained popular, they now cast Jews or non-Jewish victims like homosexuals in lead roles more often than was the case in the past. Baron attributes the recent proliferation of Holocaust comedies and children’s movies to the search for more figurative and age-appropriate genres for conveying the significance of the Holocaust to generations born after it happened. He contends that thematic shifts to stories about neo-Nazis, rescuers, survivors, and their children constitute an expression of the continuing impact the Holocaust exerts on the present. The book concludes with a survey of recent films like Nowhere in Africa and The Pianist.

    How have the crusades contributed to Islamist rage and terrorism today? Were the crusades the Christian equivalent of modern jihad? In this sweeping yet crisp history, Thomas F. Madden offers a brilliant and compelling narrative of the crusades and their contemporary relevance.

    With a cry of God wills it! medieval knights ushered in a new era in European history. Across Europe a wave of pious enthusiasm led many thousands to leave their homes, family, and friends to march to distant lands in a great struggle for Christ. Yet the crusades were more than simply a holy war. They represent a synthesis of attitudes and values that were uniquely medieval–so medieval, in fact, that the crusading movement is rarely understood today.

    Placing all the major crusades within the medieval social, economic, religious, and intellectual environments that gave birth to the movement and nurtured it for centuries, Madden brings the distant medieval world vividly to life. From Palestine and Europe’s farthest reaches, each crusade is recounted in a clear, concise narrative. The author gives special attention as well to the crusades’ effects on the Islamic world and the Christian Byzantine East.

    Additional Info
    In this widely praised history, noted scholar James D. Tracy offers a comprehensive, lucid, and masterful exploration of early modern Europe’s key turning point. Establishing a new standard for histories of the Reformation, Tracy explores the complex religious, political, and social processes that made change possible, even as he synthesizes new understandings of the profound continuities between medieval Catholic Europe and the multi-confessional sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This revised edition includes new material on Eastern Europe, on how ordinary people experienced religious change, and on the pluralistic societies that began to emerge.

    Reformation scholars have in recent decades dismantled brick by brick the idea that the Middle Ages came to an abrupt end in 1517. Martin Luther’s Ninety-five Theses fitted into an ongoing debate about how Christians might better understand the Gospel and live its teachings more faithfully. Tracy shows how Reformation-era religious conflicts tilted the balance in church-state relations in favor of the latter, so that the secular power was able to dictate the doctrinal loyalty of its subjects. Religious reform, Catholic as well as Protestant, reinforced the bonds of community, while creating new divisions within towns, villages, neighborhoods, and families. In some areas these tensions were resolved by allowing citizens to profess loyalty both to their separate religious communities and to an overarching body-politic. This compromise, a product of the Reformations, though not willed by the reformers, was the historical foundation of modern, pluralistic society.

    Richly illustrated and elegantly written, this book belongs in the library of all scholars, students, and general readers interested in the origins, events, and legacy of Europe’s Reformation.

    Additional Info
    In this first book to explore the history of euthanasia worldwide since classical antiquity, distinguished historian Ian Dowbiggin exposes the many disturbing themes that link present and past in the concept of the right to die. His deeply informed history traces the controversial record of mercy-killing, a source of heated debate among doctors and laypeople alike. Dowbiggin examines evolving opinions about what constitutes a good death, taking into account the societal and religious values placed on sin, suffering, resignation, judgment, penance, and redemption. He also examines the bitter struggle between those who advocate for the right to compassionate and effective end-of-life care and those who justify euthanasia by defining human life in terms of biological criteria, utilitarian standards, a faith in science, humane medical treatment, the principle of personal autonomy, or individual human rights. The author considers both the influence of technological and behavioral changes in the practice of medicine and the public’s surprising lack of awareness of death’s many clinical and biological dimensions.

    Dowbiggin reminds us that the stakes in the struggle are enormously high, with the lives of countless vulnerable people hanging in the balance. His provocative historical perspective will be indispensable as patients, families, governments, and the medical community debate when it is time to let go of life. Bound to spark controversy, this book takes issue with the right-to-die movement over the question of legalizing either assisted suicide or actual lethal injection (mercy-killing) and raises profound personal and collective questions on the future of euthanasia.

  • Voices Of Syria

    $12.99

    Bombs fall. Buildings explode. People die. The war in Syria is a seemingly endless cycle of death and destruction. Yet behind the numbing statistics and finger-pointing headlines are real people-men, women, and children whose voices are seldom heard. Millions of them have fled their homeland in a desperate attempt to survive.

    This book is a collection of Syrian refugee stories, an attempt to give a voice to ordinary people whose lives have been shattered and who long for peace. These stories are told in the context of the author’s trip to the Middle East, a trip where she experienced Middle Eastern culture for the first time as she listened to brokenhearted Syrians who had fled to Lebanon and Jordan.

    American History Through Indian Eyes

    This book challenges many of the basic tenants of the Whites-land ownership, kingship, war-by telling the Indian side of the story.

    In this second volume of The Conquest Series, Owechela, a master Lenape orator prepares his grandson, Glikkikan, for the annual festival where he is to tell the story of his illustrious grandfather, Sage Meas.

    Meas strains to comprehend the meaning of life as he meets up with settlers, traders, pirates, governors, Mennonites, soldiers, slaves, traitors, and his own native people. He often launches scathing attacks on the religious pretenses of the Whites and mounts a defense of Lenape worship and culture.

    Enjoy Sage Meas’s subtle mockery of the white man’s claims in the parables of Tired Moon Pond. Learn with Meas the difference between pirates and privateers. Think about the hazards of cross-cultural love affair. And imagine what would have happened if the Indians had counterattacked a commander of the Royal Navy.

    Intent upon dominating the Lenape and their lands, avaricious Whites cames from England, France, Holland, and Sweden, sailing across the Great Salt Sea in their inspiring white-winged canoes. Men from each arriving nation brought their rivalry and warring methods to the Lenape homeland.

    This Indian saga reveals how great sachems of the Lenape-Eesanques, Mattahorn, Tamanend-tried to preserve their homeland amidst the wonders and terrors brought by these European invaders.

    Crime and violence in the territorial days is well known. However, Oklahoma outlaws of the 1920’s led a reign of robbery & violence that stretched beyond the borders. When the number of bank robberies in 1924 reached 52, public officials were forced to respond by creating a unique state law enforcement agency that was commonly referred to as the ‘State Crime Bureau.’ Oklahoma law men confronted outlaws who had made the transition from horse-back to automobile. The pursuit of these outlaws was a dangerous business. Law men who lost their lives in the line of duty included state operative, Luther Bishop who was brutally gunned down.

  • Selected Religious Letters And Papers Of Thomas Jefferson

    $29.95

    The late Alan Heimert, Professor of American Literature at Harvard University and author of Religion and the American Mind, said that the evidence gathered by Mark Beliles for this book provides, truly new and original insight into the religious atmosphere of pre-Revolutionary Virginia, adding immeasurably to Thomas Jefferson’s own intellectual biography.

    After another decade of preparation the evidence has finally been compiled and edited for the Selected Religious Letters and Papers of Thomas Jefferson.

    Never before have most of Jefferson’s religious correspondence and documented religious actions been collected into one volume. The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, published by Princeton University Press, have yet to publish many of Jefferson’s correspondence from over fifteen years of his life. But Beliles has taken on the enormous task of bringing over 50 letters written by Jefferson into print here for the first time ever. But another 70 previously unpublished letters written to Jefferson from religious leaders and communities of faith are also included that provide new insight into Jefferson’s religious beliefs and activities. Furthermore, entries from Jefferson’s Memorandum Books and other documents are interspersed in the text that provide additional context to the correspondence. The work is valuable for scholars but also interesting to many readers interested in Jefferson and America’s founding era. Continue Reading Selected Religious Letters And Papers Of Thomas Jefferson

According to some, anyone who would dare to allow Biblical truths to inform their world- and life- views, and especially to mention this in context of politics, government and law, are the worst form of theocrats and the greatest danger to liberty in the world. But examining the history of liberty and the work of America’s founders tells a completely different story: the Christian religion and morality are the essential pillars of free, just, and prosperous nations.

  • Rendering To Caesar The Things That Are Gods

    $5.00

    Israel worshiped a golden calf. Many Christians in the world today, especially the western world, worship a golden calf as well. But this is not a physical golden calf. It is the golden calf of socialism, the god of statism. This false god is one of the greatest threats to Christianity in the 21st century. In recent elections we have seen people tearing off their golden rings and clamoring for such a god. To those who worship this golden calf it seems to be a good god that will do good things for them. It promises them provision, security, comfort, and much more. Beware! This god will gradually consume you, your family, your business, and your freedom.

    This booklet exposes one of the greatest threats to Christianity today and one of the greatest problems the world faces. Applying the ideas presented here would turn America around.

  • American Dream : Jamestown And The Planting Of The American Christian Repub

    $11.95

    America is a unique nation in history. No nation has been as free, prosperous, charitable, and virtuous. This has nothing to do with any inherent value of the American people, but has to do with the valuable ideas upon which she was founded. Seven foundational ideas are examined that produced the American Dream, all of which are Biblical in their origin and were planted by the early settlers. The first seed principles were planted in Jamestown 400 years ago. Though often ignored, Christianity was vital for the beginning of Virginia; God’s hand was evident in preserving the colony and the lives of many of its founders. The American Dream looks at the Rev. Richard Hakluyt, the man most influential in English colonization in the new world, and his motive to inlarge the glory of the gospell. It documents the important role of the Christian faith in the founding of Virginia, and shows how the colonists’ desire to propagate the Christian religion, as recorded in the First Charter of Virginia (1606), was fulfilled in Pocahontas and other native Americans. The ideas that made America exceptional were planted and grew in all the colonies, producing much fruit in the early American republic. Today, however, these ideas are under attack and are being displaced by secular ideas. For the American Dream to continue, we must remember from where we came and return the nation to its original Godly covenant.

Since God is the author of history and He is carrying out his plan in the earth through history, any view of the history of America, or any country, that ignores God is not true history. His is sovereign over His creation and His Story in the earth, and is at work in significant, and seemingly insignificant, events to accomplish His purposes for mankind. This is a providential view of history and was held by the vast majority of those people who founded this nation. Continue Reading Americas Providential History

  • Americas Presidents Lapbook With Study Guide

    $21.00

    The ability to vote is one of the most cherished of our Constitutional Rights. It is the right to vote that people have fought for, marched for, and even died for, over the centuries. It is the right to vote that enables you to express your opinion as to the fitness of our elected leaders and their policies. It is the right to vote that permits you to hire or fire those who represent you in government. It is the right to vote that allows you to determine, to a certain degree, your own future by electing officials who reflect your views and will speak for you in government. But by not voting you are abdicating your right to influence government and allowing the will of others, whose opinions maybe contrary to your own, to prevail. And more importantly, by not voting you are allowing it to be no longer the will of the majority that governs this country, but rather, the will of the minority.

    Voting is important! It is also important that our children know that one day they should feel voting is important enough that they too will register and vote. Start here with this fun and informational Presidents Lapbook!

    All the presidents are covered in our Presidents Lapbook with Study Guide! Have fun learning about the presidents with this 3 folder lapbook! Learn about the President’s job, how a president is elected, political parties, inauguration day, the oath of office, the White House, match the president’s name to the picture ( a real picture-NOT a cartoon), and more! There is even an extra space for the next new president to be elected in 2008!

  • Double Life Of Pocahontas

    $7.99

    Jean Fritz’s award-winning book (Putnam, 1983) provides an historically accurate account of the life of Pocahontas. The favored daughter of Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas finds herself torn between two worlds when the British settlers come to Jamestown and she becomes a link between the two diverse cultures. In a move engineered to save the life of Captain John Smith, Pocahontas performs a ritual that marks Smith as her kinsman-a relationship she honors with devotion but that he does not truly understand. Her father’s appetite for weapons and the British need for food and desire for wealth led to multiple conflicts in which the princess was used as a pawn by both sides. Pocahontas left no written record of her experiences, and much of the information presented in the book has been gleaned from Smith’s journals. While there is very little dialogue, narrator Melissa Hughes does an excellent job of varying her voice to express emotion and hold listeners’ interest. This well-written account of Pocahontas’s life will educate youngsters. Continue Reading Double Life Of Pocahontas
