Guide to Dinosaurs by Brian Thomas

Millions of years ago, before mankind, monstrous lizards ruled the earth and were suddenly wiped out by a huge asteroid that blackened the sky... at least that's the popular theory. Guide to Dinosaurs challenges the evolutionary model that pervades the study of dinosaurs and presents a biblically minded interpretation backed by solid science.

Dinosaurs were amazing creatures. We're learning more about them all the time, but there are still many question. How do they fit with the Bible? Are they really millions of years old? Did they live at the same time as humans? Were dinosaurs on the Ark? If so, why are they extinct today? Examine the evidence and discover that the Bible tells the real dinosaur story.
Learn all about the history of dinosaur fossils, different dinosaur types, and mankind's interaction with 'dragons' in the years following the Flood. Great for the dinosaur-lover of any age!

Guide to Creation by Institute of Creation Research

Knowing where we came from is extremely important.  If natural processes made mankind over billions of purposeless years, then our lives mean nothing, and our ideas about reality are mere chemical interactions occurring inside our brain cells.
But if God made mankind supernaturally, then each day of our lives is packed with meaning. Our Creator set each of us on the stage of an unfolding history to play our parts according to His excellent and loving purposes. And if God made humans recently, like the Bible clearly indicates, then Scripture is error-free, worthy of our complete trust, and authored by a Creator whose Word settles the matter - whatever that matter might be.
Why should we study God's creation? In short, it's because that investigation will help answer some of our most significant questions about life, the world, its origin, its purpose, and ultimately why we are here.
This comprehensive 120-page guide, authored by ICR scientists and scholars, is loaded with hundreds of full-color illustrations.
Topics include:
   • The Flood
   • The Fossil Record
   • Mount St. Helens
   • Carbon Dating
   • Problems with the "Big Bang"
   • Recent Creation of the Universe
   • Life's All-or-Nothing Design
   • Dinosaurs in Scripture
   • Myths and Fallacies
   • Genesis and the Curse
   • Design and Order in Creation
   • Humans Are Unique

My Heart Will Go On Singing by N.A. Woychuk

Like a blazing sunset at day's end, the golden years often provide the most beautiful vistas. The natural aging process shouldn't be feared---it's an opportunity for learning and leaning on God. Through classical verse, beloved hymns, and thoughtful prose, this Christ-centered collection celebrates the eventide of life and the glorious hope of heaven.

While everyone's destiny is to grow older, not everyone will necessarily grow old. Age is as much a state of mind as it is a physical reality, and it need not interfere with our passion to serve Jesus Christ.

My Heart Will Go On Singing: Redeeming the Golden Years for the Glory of God offers encouragement, purpose, and cheer to the senior saint. From beloved poetry, to moving hymn lyrics, to the writings of perceptive Christians both classic and contemporary, the golden years are described as a time of hope and joy, as an opportunity to learn, grow, and lean upon God.

Contains eighty-seven excerpts from such authors as John Milton, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Thomas Gray, Isaac Watts, and Alfred Lord Tennyson.

50 Years in the “Church” of Rome by Charles Chiniquy

Conversion Testimony of a Former Catholic Priest
As a child, Chiniquy memorized scriptures at his mother's knee and developed a deep love for God. Becoming a priest, he wanted desperately to place full trust in his "church", but was hit by waves of doubt as his "church" claimed adherence to the Gospel, yet violated it at every turn. His jealous superiors falsely accused him, but Abraham Lincoln, a young lawyer from Illinois, defended him and saved his reputation. Chiniquy proves that it was the Jesuits who later killed Lincoln, and explains why.
Finally, after twenty-five years as a priest in the Roman Catholic Church, his bishop demanded that he give up his precious Bible, and pledge blind obedience to the "church. After a dark night of struggle, he emerged gloriously saved, and led almost the entire Catholic population of St. Anne, Illinois to trust in Christ alone. Here is the finest work ever written to show, from the inside, what Catholicism really is. You will feel Chiniquy's broken heart for Catholics, even as he clearly refutes Catholicism's errors. Now, abridged from the 1886 edition, it is even more readable than before!

A Friend For You Season's Greeting Card

Features artwork of Australian red-capped robins.
Front: Being alone can be very difficult at a time like this -
When everyone around you is full of joy, celebrations and plans
Sometimes it doesn't seem right or fair to feel so lonely...
That's why I want to share something with you.

Inside: I want to tell you about my Friend:
He is a Friend who is much closer than a brother
He wants to be your Friend too –
This Friend is Jesus, the Son of God.
He left His home with God
and came down to earth as a baby.
He grew up in a family and became a Man
Despite His love and care to those around Him
He was rejected by the very people He came to help.
Born for a very special purpose, this Man – Christ Jesus –
Was sent by God because of His great love for us
He was the Friend of the lonely, sad, sick, and sinful –
and still is!
He came to stand between us and a holy God
A God who could not have sin in His presence –
Sin had separated people from Himself
Only Jesus could pay the price for sin,
And that is why He willingly went to the cross
And bled and died, taking our place – a substitute
So that God would not have to punish us.
For three days He lay in the grave after His death
And then He rose again – to give life and hope!
He is coming back again someday
To take His friends home to be with Him forevermore
His arms are wide open, waiting for you
Will you be His Friend?
