Later, Emmy Lou wished she could do that day over again. She couldn't do that, but she could learn from her mistake. And then one day, Emmy Lou got a surprise. More info...

Integrity: A Study on the Life of Joseph

Jon Kropf / TGS International

The story of Joseph is one of the most amazing stories in the Bible, standing as a favorite of both children and adults. Joseph's response to both adverse and favorable circumstances still speaks to us today, his irreproachable character serving as a role model for people of all ages.

Written for youth and adults, this study of Joseph's life addresses pertinent topics such as personal integrity, respect for authority, moral purity, forgiveness, repentance, and salvation. Utilizing discussion questions and learning activities, the ten lessons become alive and applicable in everyday situations. Extra background material as well as suggestions for extra-curricular reading round out the lessons.

This study was first taught as a Vacation Bible School course. However, it has been designed for multiple settings, including high schools, home schools, and missions. It can also be used for personal or small-group Bible study, one-on-one discipleship, and evangelism.

Be strengthened and encouraged as you study about a man of true integrity, and may you resolve to imitate his character. More info...

Grade 6 Reading A Time to Build

Revised Workbook

Rod and Staff Publishers

A revised and expanded workbook (with accompanying test booklet and teacher's manual) is now available for grade 6, following the pattern of the previously-revised grade 5 course. The workbook contains a Lesson Outline for most lessons, and a variety of exercises, such as fill-in-the-blanks, true-or-false, best-choice, and sentence answers. It offers vocabulary skills, theme selection, sequencing, and composition. Suggested scoring points are given for each lesson.

These materials are designed for use with the existing grade 6 reader, which has not been revised, and still includes exercises after each lesson. Feel free to skip those exercises if you are using the expanded workbook, which will have sufficient exercises for the whole grade.

(If you still want to use the reader's exercises, the previous edition teacher's manual, along with the supplementary "Building Reading Skills" workbook and teacher's edition, are still available.)

The New Age Facade

Dallas Witmer / Rod and Staff Publishers

A New Age has dawned—the Age of Aquarius! New powers are being unleashed. Man is becoming like God, if indeed he is not already God. One-world government and a universal religion will usher in an age of unprecedented peace and harmony. Individually, the spiritual union of inner space with the earth and outer space will provide the conditions for well-being and self-healing.

So go the claims. The New Age pretends to have leapfrogged religion, science, and even logic in opening new frontiers of awareness and healing, oneness and peace!

But beware of the New Age facade. More info...

Secrets of the Kingdom Life

David Bercot / Scroll Publishing

Jesus says, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple." To be disciples of Jesus, we must deny ourselves, our families, and everything we own—even our very lives. Following Jesus would seem to be one of the most challenging quests we can face.

Yet Jesus also tells us: "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

How can both of those teachings be true? First Christ requires us to deny everything, including our own lives. Then He tells us that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. How can His yoke be easy if He requires us to deny everything and carry our cross?

The answer is among the secrets of the Kingdom Life. More info...

If the World Is Getting Better, Why Is It Getting Worse?

Isaac D. Martin / Rod and Staff Publishers

This book traces ways that society has gone downhill in recent years. But it also points out ways that we as individuals can still go up. Here you will find more than reminisces about "the good old days" or gloomy prophecies about the future. Cheer pervades these pages. Although the broad road is getting broader, the narrow way is still there if we look for it. Let us climb it together. More info...
