It's March already!

Time for this month's book picks!

Peril and Peace: Chronicles of the Ancient Church (History Lives series)I am so excited about these read-alouds for myself the kids. :) The History Lives series begins with Peril and Peace: Chronicles of the Ancient Church (History Lives series) .  This volume is the first in a set of five that chronicles the history of the Christian church. The remainder of the series follows church history up to present day. We're only on the first book and - wow!- have loved reading about the early martyrs of the Christian faith. Recommended reading age is 9-11, but at 6 1/2 years old, Jackson has had no problem following along.

The next four in the series are:


Monks and Mystics: Chronicles of the Medieval Church (History Lives series)        Courage and Conviction: Chronicles of the Reformation Church (History Lives series)        Hearts and Hands: Chronicles of the Awakening Church (History Lives series)        Rescue and Redeem: Volume 5 Chronicles of the Modern Church (History Lives)

You can buy them separately on Amazon, but the complete set is currently on sale at Grace and Truth books for $29.50 for all five.

Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that MattersAnother Timothy Keller book I'm about to read is Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters. If it's anything like his last book, I know I'll enjoy it!

Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge (Public Television Storytime Books)Last, but not least is Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge (Public Television Storytime Books). It's about a little boy who has a special friendship with an elderly lady who has lost her memory and how he helps her find it. So sweet, and I enjoyed reading it to the kids as a way to talk about my grandmother and her recent diagnosis of Alzheimers.

Happy reading!!!

Hi Kelli! I found you on my blog party hopping from Femina :-)
You have the cutest blog! The Keller book is very good...and I'm interested in the first series you mentioned for my eight year old son. They sound terrific!
