Men and Women as God Intended
Rick Rhodes / T.G.S. International
What role does God intend for men and women to fill? In a day when words like unisex, cross-dressing, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and sex reassignment surgeries are increasingly common, do we really understand God's plan for the two genders?
Rick Rhodes, who lives in a country that performs the most sex reassignment surgeries in the world, has sought God's Word for answers on gender roles and shares his insights into some of these issues. He is well aware of cultural differences, having lived in the United States, on a Caribbean Island, and in Southeast Asia, and firmly believes that Biblical principles for men and women can be applied in every culture and every time period.
As society turns its back on Truth, it also turns to deception and confusion. What will you and I do?
This book is a refreshing reminder that God's original design cannot be improved upon! More info...
Fonda Good / T.G.S. International

But slowly, Olive's perspective begins to change. She begins to understand that she is experiencing things in California that she would know nothing about if her family had stayed in Ohio. And most important, she realizes that God called her family there and where God places us is always the best place to be.

A Pilgrim's View of the Political World
Michael S. Martin; foreword by Merle Ruth / Arundel Press
Quotes from reviewers:
"This book does more than contradict conventional wisdom; it offers Biblical wisdom. Here are sound and carefully reasoned answers to questions that Christians raise about governments and how to relate to them. Spiced with anecdotes and aphorisms, this book is worth reading for pleasure and profit."
—David L. Martin, Rochester, Washington
"I found Pilgrims and Politics very interesting and enlightening. I especially like the summarizing statements. Many of them are gems of truth. This book touches an area that in my opinion has been somewhat of a blind spot. In so doing, it does our brotherhood a real service. Hopefully, God will use this book to correct muddled thinking within our ranks and to teach future generations. It should also attract serious Christians outside of Mennonite circles."
—Merle Ruth, Annville, Pennsylvania
"Pilgrims and Politics is a stimulating, informative, and well-researched treatment of the Christian's relationship to politics. This book is especially timely as we witness the unrestrained involvement of modern evangelicals in politics and the democratic process. Christians need to read this book."
—Dennis Torkelson, Duchess, Alberta
"Much research and prayer has gone into this book. It has the potential to help us think right and act right, now and in the years ahead. It has sharpened my thinking in some respects, and I am grateful."
—the late James L. Boll, Flat Gap, Kentucky
"How should Christians respond to various political situations? Where is God in the rise and fall of governments? What answers does the Bible give to the pilgrim's questions about politics? This book alerts us to the problems of pilgrims and politics and points us to Scriptural answers."
—Lester E. Showalter, Greencastle, Pennsylvania

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...
