The Shepherd of Salm

The story of a Täufer congregation during the French Revolution (1789-1794)

Joanna F. Martin / Rod and Staff Publishers

"What's going on here?" a voice thundered. "I wish you Täufer would get out of here!"

Christian Gerber jumped. Who? What? Why would anyone be so angry?...

He tried to remember. Something about that voice seems familiar—that German with a heavy French accent. Who can he be?

To Christian, Paris seemed far away that summer afternoon in Salm, and he did not guess how the uprisings the stranger described would affect the the next years of his life or disrupt the home he hoped to share with Anna K¨pferschmitt or call him to the greatest privilege God grants His children—the opportunity to lay down life to gain Life. Yet, Christian had placed his faith in the Shepherd, and he was ready to follow.

The Shepherd of Salm is a carefully researched and fully documented story of real people in real places. Some of this material has been gleaned from resources that were freshly translated into English specifically for this project. More info...

Love Lifted Me

How a Cambodian genocide survivor and an American biker found the Lord and each other

MarJanita Geigley / Christian Light Publications

Young Pouv had a tender heart and a curious mind. Things just don't make themselves, she thought. Born into a Buddhist family in Cambodia, how would she find the truth?

When the Khmer Rouge swept in, bringing unimaginable horrors to Cambodia, Pouv's world—and her family—was ripped apart. Forced labor, brutal treatment, and living near starvation became her daily existence. Hundreds of thousands perished.

Pouv's questions remained. Looking into the starry night sky, she asked, "Do you ever wonder where this all came from?" No one answered. Did anyone know?

Dennis Burfete was a rowdy young rebel. Quick to take his own way and slow to follow orders, he was constantly in trouble. As a young man, joining a motorcycle gang gave him a sense of power and independence. "No one tells me what to do," he said defiantly. But his life became a wasteland of emptiness. Was this the best life had to offer?

Dennis and Pouv's lives were worlds apart, but they shared a common and desperate need. They each found the one and only truly satisfying Answer, and then they found each other.

A true testimony of God's love and mercy. More info...

Always Face a Panther

And Other Stories of Earlier Days in America

Ruth K. Hobbs / Christian Light Publications

Let's go visit people who lived long ago—most of them over a hundred years before you were born! Their lives differed from ours in many ways. Imagine running a farm and taking care of your family alone, spending a winter in the north woods trapping animals, or working long hours in a grinding room. Young people today just don't do those kinds of things.

Times have changed since those days, but people remain the same. Young people then knew that obedience, respect, kindness, and hard work were important, just as we do. They faced temptations to do things they knew were wrong, just as we do.

Come along! Open the book—let's go visiting. What do these friends from long ago have to tell us? More info...

Bible Verse Coloring Calendar

Mary Currier / Christian Light Publications

This unique book provides children with an opportunity to create their own wall calendar by coloring in the picture mottoes, and writing the days of the month. It is undated, but includes thumbnail calendar dates in the front through 2020. This book is designed to help your children express their creativity. By coloring the pictures carefully, they can enjoy them each day of the month. Later, verses from outdated calendars may be framed to be used as mottoes.

As children fill in the numerals for each day of the month, they will observe that a month may begin on any day of the week. Below the numerals, they may want to write birthdays of family or friends, or other important events.

We hope this calendar will increase children's interest in understanding and using a calendar regularly. More info...
