Aunt Jane's Hero

by Elizabeth Prentiss

It protests also against the extravagance and other evils of the times, which tends to check the growth of such homes, and aims to show that there are still treasures of love and peace on earth, that may be bought without money and without price.

Holy War

by John Bunyan

Once upon a time in the town of Mansoul, a fierce battle raged to take control away from the rightful Prince. Who will be the conquering Prince. Diabolus or Emmanuel?

Through this powerful allegory, you will learn how to: build up your defences, flood your moat, and prepare for war! Bunyan will illuminate your understanding and show you: when your will is in line with Christ, you can accomplish anything. Spiritual attack is constant and can be deadly. The enemy will stop at nothing to possess your soul. Christ the conqueror is on your side, and with His help, you have nothing to fear!

Mother

Mother

by Kathleen Norris

This is a difficult age to be a woman. The woman who aspires to raise children for the glory of God, to develop the ministry of the home, or to co-labour with her husband is deemed "old-fashioned" or "unfulfilled." The modern lure of independence and career has bewitched an entire generation to exchange the beauty of Christian womanhood for the temporary enticements of a society at war with the family. Amidst this confusion, Kathleen Norris's Mother is a refreshing call to sanity. Mother is the fictional tale of a young lady who leaves home and repudiates family life in the hope of finding personal fulfilment through independence and a career. She decides that home life is a poor choice in the face of life in the big city. But God dramatically changes her heart, and she realizes that wealth and position are illusory and that independence can enslave a young lady. She discovers that the greatest woman she has ever known is her mother. Now she longs for home and for motherhood. After reading this book, one woman wrote, "As I turned the last page, tears filled my eyes. I knelt by my bed and asked God to forgive me for my bitterness and my unwillingness to trust and obey Him."
