  • Cue For Treason by Geoffrey Trease

    Cue For Treason by Geoffrey Trease

    Cue For Treason is one of those books I enjoyed reading so much as a kid, it got put on my mental “must read to my own children” list. I found a used copy at a local bookstore a few years ago, and was pleased our children enjoyed it as much as I had. The…

  • Profiles of Valor by Marilyn Boyer

    Profiles of Valor by Marilyn Boyer

    Profiles of Valor by Marilyn Boyer was an interesting book to read as a Canadian, still part of the British Commonwealth that the Founding Fathers of America fought for freedom from when it was ruled by King George III. It chronologically follows the events that happened during the War of Independence from 1775-1783, with a…

  • Trial and Triumph by Richard Hannula

    Trial and Triumph by Richard Hannula

    If I could only suggest one church history book to read aloud to your kids this year, it would be Trial and Triumph. In this well-researched, well-written living book, Richard Hannula has brought to life forty-six heroes of the faith. Beginning with Polycarp in the Early Church, and ending with Richard Wrumbrand, Trial and Triumph…

    For Christ’s Crown by Richard Hannula

    We listened to the audio version of For Christ’s Crown: Sketches of Puritans and Covenanters by Richard Hannula on our trips to and from church, and I wanted to recommend it heartily. Much like Hannula’s other well-loved collection of biographies, Trial and Triumph, the historical sketches in this book exalt our Lord and Savior Jesus…

  • Remember the Alamo! by Robert Penn Warren

    Remember the Alamo! by Robert Penn Warren

    Remember the Alamo! by Robert Penn Warren was the first history book we read about Texas after arriving here. We all enjoyed it, but none so much as our 12 year old son, whose favorite topic is military history, whose favorite games are strategy games, and whose love for the Lone Star State is blinding.…

    Children of the Storm: The Autobiography of Natasha Vins

    Children of The Storm by Natasha Vins is a true story that takes place in the Soviet Union during the 1960s and 70s. We could not make it through a single chapter without drawing multiple parallels between the Communist government in Eastern Europe just one generation ago and what is happening here in North America…

  • Words On Fire by Jennifer Nielsen

    Words On Fire by Jennifer Nielsen

    The suppression of truth to advance one’s own agenda is nothing new. (Aren’t we all guilty of leaving out certain details to make ourselves look better?!) Ananias and Sapphira were punished with immediate death for their collaboration in a “white lie” that was made to elevate their appearance to the rest of the church. God…
