1. Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

“A beautifully written glimpse into heaven that will encourage those who doubt and thrill those who believe.”

—Ron Hall, coauthor of Same Kind of Different as Me

“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.

With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”

Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

Read Review

Updated with an edgy, new design, this inspiring devotional from John MacArthur will help children through their growth spurts of faith. After children have come to accept Christ, a whole new series of questions can flood their hearts and minds. What should I do when I don’t understand God? Is there a special way to pray? What if I tell someone about Jesus and nothing happens? As he did in I Believe in Jesus, MacArthur takes these and many more complex questions and presents them in a simple style that young minds can easily understand. He reinforces that understanding with Prayer Starters and daily prompts that help kids to apply their newfound wisdom to their lives each day. A helpful guide for young believers, A Faith to Grow On presents foundational doctrines of the Christian faith in short devotional readings for daily growth.

7. The Holy War

by: John Bunyan
Release date: Nov 20, 2013
Number of Pages: 256
Find in Library
Read Review

John Bunyan could be said to have authored the most influential book in the English language (other than the King James Bible) – The Pilgrim’s Progress. But he has also written another dramatic allegorical novel – The Holy War.

Bunyan’s plan for his readers was for them to experience the struggles of the city of Mansoul as a fierce battle rages to take control of it. However, alongside this knife-edge drama Bunyan wished his readers to understand how the struggles of their souls ran in parallel to the struggles of the wretched inhabitants of that place.

The righteous and honourable ruler Shaddai and his son Immanuel rule Mansoul with justice and equity. But the ruler of darkness – Prince Diabolus – has other plans. With his evil captains and their battalions Diabolus plots the fall and destruction of the once happy city. The first to fall is Captain Resistance as Diabolus knows that there is only one route into the city and that it can only be breached through the permission of the people of Mansoul itself. With Captain Resistance gone, the city is laid open to Diabolic lies and the next to fall is Lord Innocency and then the city is lost.

So begins a story of treachery and deceit, foolishness and pride, forgiveness and final redemption. In fact this is, as Bunyan intended it, the story of a sinner saved by the grace of God.

Read Review
“It’s easy to feel a sense of peace after completing Fawzia Gilani’s Cinderella. This humble version of the classic fairy tale is a gentle reminder that victory comes as much from a peaceful soul as a beautiful dress and a dramatic confrontation.” – Luxury Reading

Cinderella is one of the oldest, best-known, and most loved stories worldwide, with hundreds of cultural variants and re-tellings from ancient Egypt and China to the present day. In this version we follow the trials and tribulations of the sweet, gentle, and pious Zahra when her parents die and she is left at the mercy of an uncaring stepmother and stepsisters. This is a well-crafted Islamic version of the classic tale in which faith, goodness, and prayer are rewarded in the end. The charming, richly detailed illustrations of Shireen Adams, set in medieval Andalusia, help bring the text to life.

One Boy — One Dog — One Dream

Life is not easy for twelve-year-old Diego Escobár.  It was wonderful raising Aloha from puppyhood to eighteen months, but now he must return her to the guide dog school for her formal training.  Diego always knew that Aloha was on loan to him, but letting her go is proving to be the hardest challenge of his young life.

In this tender, inspirational tale, based on the true-life story of Aloha, Diego discovers that the sweet and sad in life are often interwoven.  The unconditional love and trust between Aloha and Diego will enable her to become the dog she was bred to be.  In giving her up, Diego gains unexpected rewards.

“Wherever you go, you will walk with a piece of my heart beside you.”

“This book does an excellent job of explaining the process of training guide-dog puppies, a topic that will fascinate many children. The moving scenario will have readers sniffling as Diego passes Aloha’s leash to Miss Kimberly Louise, and may even lead them to consult the appended list of resources to find out about raising their own guide-dog puppies.”

–School Library Journal

“What a book!  Ms. Bauer Mueller has captured all the emotions from all of us who play a part in a guide dog’s life.”

–Michael Hingson, National Public Affairs Representative, Guide Dogs for the Blind

“This beautiful book is inspiring – giving the reader a keen insight into raising a guide dog.  At the same time, it shows how one character, Kiberly Louise, deals with her sudden blindness.  The story is very unique and focused, which makes it perfect for the market of those interested in raising guide dogs, but also with a broad appeal for the mass market.  The research is very admirable.”

No nation in the history of the world has accomplished more, in such a short time, as the United States of America. In every measurable field of endeavor we are a great and unique nation of doers and achievers. However, our fall into mediocrity will be quicker than our rise into greatness if we forget the primary reason for that ascent. In this author’s opinion it is adherence to the teachings of Jesus Christ in the lives of individual Americans. As we stop being a God fearing nation, we will continue falling into an immoral abyss. The only solution to this slouching path to misery is simple; achieve an understanding of the true principles that shaped us as people and as a nation, and return to living by them. Here is a collection of talks by a Christian clergyman that can change your outlook in a positive way! Gaining an insightful understanding of the role that Jesus Christ will have in your life is one of life’s simple pleasures. In a world that is confusing at best and spiraling out of control at worst, appreciating the things you must change to include him and experience the happiness, joy, and simplicity is truly rewarding. Reading, applying and living these truthful principles from the scriptures, and real life experience of the author, will transform your life, for the better

Number of Pages: 40

Read Review

In 1912, a well-known doctor and writer named Janusz Korczak designed an extraordinary orphanage for Jewish children in Warsaw, Poland. Believing that children were capable of governing themselves, he encouraged the orphans to elect a parliament, run a court, and put out their own weekly newspaper. Even when Korczak was forced to move the orphanage into the Warsaw Ghetto after Hitler’s rise to power, and couldn’t afford to buy food and medicine for his charges, he never lost sight of his ideals. Fully committed to giving his children as much love as possible during a terrifying time, Korczak refused to abandon them.

In his most beautiful and heartfelt book to date, with evocative acrylic illustrations and spare, poignant prose, Tomek Bogacki tells the story of a courageous man who, during one of the grimmest moments in world history, dedicated his life’s work? and ultimately his life itself?to children.

Release date: Apr 28, 2015
Number of Pages: 48

Read Review
In our postmodern, pluralistic world, there are plenty of genuinely spiritual people who consider Christ a way to heaven, or even their way to heaven, but who refuse to acknowledge Him as the only way for everyone. In their estimation, anyone who stresses an exclusive, saving faith in Jesus Christ is at the least intolerant and, at worst, completely ignorant. Yet as Rod Rosenbladt shows in this booklet, there are numerous evidences that support the centrality and exclusivity of Christ. He draws on these here to affirm that even in the face of sophisticated theological attacks, God’s Word–and Christ’s unique claims–still hold true.
In defending solus Christus Christians need not disregard the noble words or deeds of unbelievers throughout history. But there is One whose words and works stand far above all others, and whose entire existence proved His exclusive claims. And He deserves not only our worship, but our witness before a lost world.
