GALEN AND THE GATEWAY TO MEDICINE

product image
$13.95
We know about Hippocrates, the Father of medicine. but we owe nearly as much to Galen, a physician born in 129 A.D. at the height of the Roman Empire. Galen's acute diagnoses of patients, botanical wisdom, and studies of physiology were recorded in numerous books, handed down through the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Not least, Galen passed on the medical tradition of respect for life. In this fascinating biography for young people, Jeanne Bendick brings Galen's Roman world to life with the clarity, humor, and outstanding content we enjoyed in Archimedes and the Door to Science.

The Divine Comedy 1: HELL

product image
$13.00
Guided by the poet Virgil, Dante plunges to the very depths of Hell and embarks on his arduous journey towards God. Together they descend through the nine circles of the underworld and encounter the tormented souls of the damned - from heretics and pagans to gluttons, criminals and seducers - who tell of their sad fates and predict events still to come in Dante's life. In this first part of his "Divine Comedy", Dante fused satire and humour with intellect and soaring passion to create an immortal Christian allegory of mankind's search for self-knowledge and spiritual enlightenment.

Discovering What the Future Ho

product image
$6.99
Why wonder or worry about the future?
God has given you a sneak preview.


With all that’s transpiring in the world, people can’t help but wonder what the future holds. Will there ever be peace on earth? How long will the world live under the threat of terrorism? Is a one-world ruler on the horizon?

God has already provided answers to these questions in the book of Daniel, which sets forth His blueprints for the future. In fact, when you understand the prophecies Daniel reveals, every other prophecy in the Bible will fit somewhere in the plan.

If you want to understand the future, if you want to know what will happen in the “end of days,” you need to begin with the prophecies of the Book of Daniel. Join me on this glorious adventure into the future.

Darwin on Trial

product image
$16.00
In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title to be one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals! A Christianity Today 1992 Book of the Year Runner-up! Recipient of a Christianity Today 1992 Readers' Choice Award! Here's the book that has rocked the scientific--and Christian--establishment. Phillip Johnson's critique of Darwinian evolution touched off explosions among scientists and theologians almost from the day of its publication in 1992. The volatile debate was at first carried on in academic journals and in magazines like Nature and Scientific American. It even engaged the attention of leading evolutionists like Nobel Laureate physicist Steven Weinberg and prominent naturalist Stephen Jay Gould. Johnson was invited to debate several of his opponents at universities across the country. And he was himself the subject of debate: Michael Ruse, author of Darwinism Defended, spoke at an annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science on the topic "Nonliteralist Anti-Evolutionism: The Case of Phillip Johnson." Darwin on Trial also shook up theistic evolutionists. William Hasker (Huntington College, Indiana) in the Christian Scholar's Review, Howard Van Till (Calvin College, Michigan) in First Things and Owen Gingerich (Harvard Center for Astrophysics) in Perspectives on Science & the Christian Faith all published their critiques of Darwin on Trial. Clearly, Johnson's arguments have been taken seriously by Darwinists of every sort. And though at first the mainstream press seemed to be out of earshot (except for reviews in Publisher's Weekly and The National Review), news of Darwin on Trial eventually reached wider audiences. Last summer, Johnson appeared with William F. Buckley on Firing Line. And in May 1995 he was interviewed on the PBS telecast In the Beginning: The Creationist Controversy with Randall Balmer. These and other indications of expanding interest in his critique is good news for all who wish to bring the debate over Darwinism into the bright light of day.

Come Look with Me: WORLD OF PLAY

product image
$15.95
Not only children, but also adults who read to them can learn from and enjoy this introduction to the visual delights of fine art, the fourth book in the much-acclaimed COME LOOK WITH ME series.

COME LOOK WITH ME: World of Play pairs quality art reproductions with thought-provoking questions, encouraging children to enter the painting or sculpture and explore it through the artist’s eyes, through the eyes of the people depicted, and through the child’s own imagination.

Author Gladys S. Blizzard has chosen twelve fascinating works of art ranging from an ancient Minoan fresco and a classic Winslow Homer to a wacky modern basketball game sculpted by Red Grooms in painted wood.

This book can be shared by adults and children at home, in the classroom, in a library or museum. Wherever the setting, readers will enjoy this new way of looking at art: at the eager Mexican youngsters diving for falling candies and fruits in Diego Rivera’s Pinata; at Pieter Bruegel’s Children’s Games, where a townful of children engage in more than eighty different games of the 1500’s; at Elaine de Kooning’s Baseball Players, who, in a flash of color, make a deciding play at home plate. What children learn here by looking can spark in them a lifetime of appreciation for the fine arts.

Cameron Townsend: Good News in Every Language

product image
$8.99
The Cakchiquel man became indignant when Cam offered him a tract in Spanish. "Do you have one in Cakchiquel?" he asked. "There are none, I'm sorry," replied Cam. "Well," retorted the man, "if your God is so great, why can't he speak my language?"

In one decisive moment, Cameron Townsend understood that God had called him to translate the Bible into the language of his Guatemalan friends. For Cam, the obstacles were small when compared to the growing reward of helping the diverse people of Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru read God's life-changing Word for themselves.

Quick on his feet and slow to give up, Cam started Wycliffe Bible Translators with the dream of making the Good News available in every language. Since 1942, Wycliffe has translated Scripture into hundreds of languages, speading God's Word to people all over the world.
