Evidence for Advanced Technology in Past Civilizations
Donald E. Chittick, Ph.D. / Creation Compass
Popular culture has led us to believe that ancient man was primitive, originating from primates and steadily improving through a process of time and chance. But does that agree with reality? What does the evidence left behind from past cultures tell us? Was ancient man simple and primitive as we have been taught, or did the level of science and technology existing thousands of years ago rival, or even surpass, the level of ours today in the 21st century?
In this updated edition, Dr. Chittick examines more details of technology, evidence of ancient machine power, and optical technology possessed by ancient people. Come and examine with Dr. Chittick what the facts say about ancient man that have long gone unnoticed and often times ignored by today's secular culture. More info...

Discovering the Work of the Cross in the Lives of 12 Women of the Bible—for Today's Woman
Mary Ellen Beachy / Carlisle Press
"Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene" (John 19:25).
This book is about women who came to the Cross, and continue daily to come to find purpose and meaning in life. My purpose for this book is to encourage ordinary women like myself.
- To search the Scriptures and see the dedication of godly women and the difference they made in the lives of their families and others in Bible times.
- To do your ordinary work "as unto the Lord," offering up yourself as a living daily sacrifice for Jesus.
- To be encouraged with the lives of men and women who lived their days with the passionate purpose to please the Lord.
Life is filled with many ordinary days and mountains of mundane work. There are spiritual battles for each woman of God.
Unless we meet Jesus at the Cross we are not ready to meet the challenges of life. The Cross of Jesus Christ is either our comfort or our condemnation. The Cross of Jesus Christ is our salvation. We must know the Lord of the Cross!!
The first part of each chapter is about a woman from the Bible. Then down-to-earth lessons to learn from her, and experiences from my life and the lives of others who have embraced the "Way of the Cross."
The story at the end of each chapter is about contemporary women whose lives are worthy to learn from and emulate.

Mary Joice Zimmerman / Rod and Staff Publishers
Good morning, Baby, round and rosy,
Bouncy, bouncy—get your nosey!
Soft and cuddly, warm and wiggly;

Sharilyn Martin / Christian Light Publications
This is the true story of how God in His love and mercy reached down and touched the heart of a little adopted girl traumatized by grief and separation from her birth mother. The vivid oil paintings on each page capture the real emotions—the tears and the fear, the light and the peace—that make this simply-told story so powerful. The Night the Angel Came is not just for children—grown-ups, too, will treasure this beautiful story. More info...
Mrs. Cleon Martin / Vineyard Publications
The main character of this story is Ruth Weber, a girl on the brink of young womanhood. She sometimes struggles with discontentment, rebellion, and other troubles common to humanity.
You will also meet Robert, Ruth's exasperating yet lovable twin brother; Mom, who disorganized habits are a trial to Ruth; Dad, whose lack of words is a frustration to his family, and Maggie, the crusty and colorful owner of the Hawkesville General Store.
Walk with Ruth as she works in different homes; as she anguishes with her brother's struggles; as she tries to come to terms with life at home; and as she takes instruction for baptism. All the while her heart is yearning, groping for the truth. Find out how the mystery of God's Word is gradually revealed, and Ruth realizes there are spiritual things that can hardly be grasped by the mind—yet they are the essence of Truth.
Winding through the story like a silver thread is the Conestoga River; and when a minister uses it to illustrate God's plan for the Church of Christ, the river becomes a never-to-be-forgotten picture of eternal truth. More info...
