This exuberant picture book tells the story of Tony, a little boy who helps his father in the family pizzeria. “The scenes are full of visually boisterous activity, with under-pinnings of humorous detail and a clear sense of family closeness so important to the story.

The Discover 4 Yourself Bible Studies series for kids ages 9-12, combines a serious commitment to Bible study with fun and memorable games, puzzles, and activities to reinforce biblical truth. Each study is divided into daily lessons built around an in-depth, inductive study of a book or character of the Bible. Any young person who works through these studies will emerge with a richer appreciation of the Word of God and a deeper understanding of God's love and care for them.

Joseph―God's Superhero teaches children an extraordinary truth: God chooses ordinary people to become his super heroes. In the first of three characters studies in the Discover 4 Yourself series, kids will watch Joseph as he grows through some pretty amazing struggles. What would it be like to be sold as a slave and shipped off to another country by your own brothers? Later, when Joseph, meets up with his betraying brothers, will he take revenge? When he's thrown into prison for something he didn't do, how will he handle the unfairness? When he's second only to Pharaoh as the ruler of Egypt, will success go to his head?

Joseph had to deal with a life of ups and down, and God taught him how to handle them all. Now it's our turn to learn!

"When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from  unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his  bed into a monstrous vermin." With this  startling, bizarre, yet surprisingly funny first  sentence, Kafka begins his masterpiece, The  Metamorphosis. It is the story of a  young man who, transformed overnight into a giant  beetlelike insect, becomes an object of disgrace to  his family, an outsider in his own home, a  quintessentially alienated man. A harrowing -- though  absurdly comic -- meditation on human feelings of  inadequecy, guilt, and isolation, The  Metamorphosis has taken its place as one  of the mosst widely read and influential works of  twentieth-century fiction. As W.H. Auden wrote,  "Kafka is important to us because his predicament  is the predicament of modern man."

The Citadel

It stands unconquered, the last great summit of the Alps. Only one man has ever dared to approach the top, and that man died in his pursuit. He was Josef Matt, Rudi Matt's father.

At sixteen, Rudi is determined to pay tribute to the man he never knew, and complete the quest that claimed his father's life. And so, taking his father's red shirt as a flag, he heads off to face the earth's most challenging peak. But before Rudi can reach the top, he must pass through the forbidden Fortress, the gaping chasm in the high reaches of teh Citadel where his father met his end. Rudi has followed Josef's footsteps as far as they will take him. Now he must search deep within himself to find the strength for the final ascent to the summit -- to plant his banner in the sky.

His father died while trying to climb Switzerland's greatest mountain -- the Citadel -- and young Rudi knows he must make the assault himself.

It seems the boys can get nothing right: Their teacher's fiftieth birthday is long past (they should have done their math homework); the servant they bought as a present for his birthday isn't just your run-of-the-mill Gaul slave but a courier running for his life; and, to top it all off, the message he's carrying requests the assassination of a Roman senator--the father of one of the boys.

The Gift of Music: Great Composers

The Gift of Music: Great Composers
$21.99
ISBN/SKU: 
089107869X

One of the finest achievements of Western culture is its brilliant heritage of classical music. A Gift of Music looks at the lives of the greatest composers who have given us this heritage, and especially at how their music was shaped by their beliefs.

The result is a remarkable and inspiring book, showing the importance of Christian faith for many composers, and the effect of this upon their music. But it also shows how the lack of faith has brought profound change in the meaning and form of contemporary music.

Thus A Gift of Music seeks to open up a whole new world of music—to encourage listening to the finest compositions with new understanding and pleasure, and to stretch our ears and imaginations. It is a book which will be greatly appreciated by those who already love classical music, and by others who want to explore this delightful world for the first time.
