Ever wonder why your kids, parents, and even coworkers think and feel so differently than you do on core issues? Rick and Kathy Hicks contend and demonstrate that many of our core values are shaped largely by what was going on in our culture and world when we were about ten years old. By recognizing the factors that give rise to our own values and those of other generations, we can achieve greater mutual understanding and reconciliation with our children, peers, and coworkers, rather than finding ourselves in conflict. An effective tool for bridging the generation gap.
Christian education must be grounded in and governed by the Word of God. Christian Education for the Real Worldis a wake-up call for Christian parents and school administrators helping them to think about education biblically and with an eternal perspective.
The dangers of a compromised Christian education are seen throughout the world today as many young adults walk away from their faith. Morris urgently calls parents, educators, and administrators to seek first the kingdom of God for this generation’s education knowing the result will be the fulfillment of God’s mandate to have dominion on this earth, to disciple others, and reach the lost.
How do you establish Christ-centered education in an overwhelmingly humanistic educational world? How do you overcome the subtle pagan theories of science and behavior that are likely poisoning your Christian school and your child’s education? Dr. Henry Morris, a professional educator of over 50 years, offers a clear, concise and convincing framework for implementing the divine standards for education.
According to Morris, the main goals of such an education are threefold:
- the transmission of the truth
- the training of individual students for productive lives in the will of God
- the development of corporate completeness in Christ
The enterprises of science and technology, and especially of education, are man’s stewardship under God, to bring honor to Him. Christian Education for the Real World will revolutionize the thinking of Christian parents, teachers and school administrators. Dr. Morris accomplished a great ministry of bringing education and science back to God. With this practical and definitive resource, he is passing the baton to you.

The Rustling Grass reveals how plants, in fact, do more than rustle. A skunk cabbage makes its own heat, a chestnut tree fights battles, a passion plant begs for attention, a cattail pops open, and a cactus reaches out to touch someone. We discover that a tomato is actually a berry, and we learn that even poison ivy has its good points. Most importantly, De Jonge’s exploration continually makes evident the movement of God through all of His rustling creation.

Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields.
Strobel challenges them with questions like, How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?
Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for the Christian Book of the Year Award, Strobel’s tough, point-blank questions read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it’s not fiction. It’s a riveting quest for the truth about history’s most compelling figure.
Who were the Pharisees? What was a victor’s crown? How would one use a reed to measure a temple?
When we study Scripture carefully, questions like these are sure to come up. Far removed from the original context and without the proper resources, we sit, puzzled by the details before us.
Insight’s Handbook of New Testament Backgrounds: Key Customs from Each Book offers accessible and reliable answers to these and many other questions common to readers of the New Testament. You’ll discover insights into first-century life and the meanings behind significant biblical practices and illustrations. Arranged by Bible book and verse, this resource makes it easy and fun to expand and deepen your understanding of God’s Word.
