HEROES OF THE REFORMATION
Life-Changing Lessons for the Young
Richard Newton

William G. Blaikie wrote the following words about the author of this book on Heroes of the Reformation, "In preaching to the young, Dr. Newton has attained the first rank in this department of work. The American mind has such a proclivity to sharp, terse forms of expression, clever analogies and illustrations, keen analysis of feelings, vivid description and warm coloring, that we do not wonder tghat it should excel in addresses to which such qualities contribute so largely."

C.H. Spurgeon said of this volume: "The records of the Reformation translated into fascinating language for young people, by one who knows how to enthrall youthful ears and hearts. A book which should be read by every boy and girl throughout the empire."

This volume includes brief but very informative sketches on the likes of Wycliffe, Huss, Savonarola, Luther, Melancthon, Tyndale, Edward the Sixth, John Fox, Latimer and Ridley, Cranmer, Knox, Zwingli, Calvin, Farel, Alasco, Gustaus Adolphus and several others.

In the words of the author, "There is nothing more helpful to us, in seeking to serve God, than to try and learn the practical lessons which we find illustrated in the lives of the good and holy men, who have been a blessing to the church and to the world through their faithful labors. The 'Heroes of the Reformation' belong to this class, and these sketches of their noble lives are sent forth in the earnest hope that through God's blessing they may prove useful to the young who are trying to serve him."

HEROES OF THE EARLY CHURCH
Life-Changing Lessons for the Young
Richard Newton

"These graphic sketches of the 'Heroes of the Early Church' are the latest series penned by the distinguished author, whom Spurgeon fittingly called 'The Prince of Children's Preachers.' The sketches are in many respects the best work of the gifted man. As he ripened in saintship for heaven, his literary style became even more rich with the aroma of the gospel, and so more forcible, simple, and crisp, than in his earlier writings." - Edwin W. Rice, from the Preface

These helpful sketches are filled with lessons for the young and old alike on the lives of men like: Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp of Smyrna, Justin Martyr, Tertullian of Carthage, Origin of Alexandria, Eusebius of Caesarea, Athanasius the Great, Basil the Great, Ambrose of Milan, John Chrysostom, Jerome, Augustine and others.

TRUTH MADE SIMPLE:
The Attributes of God Explained for Children
John Todd

In this remarkable book JOHN TODD (1800-1873) begins what he hoped to be a Systematic Theology for Children. He begins with Theology Proper, the Doctrine of God, and he covers the following:

IS THERE ANY GOD? - GOD IS A SPIRIT - GOD ETERNAL

GOD IS EVERY WHERE - GOD ALL-WISE - GOD KNOWS EVERY THING

GOD'S POWER - TRUTH OF GOD - GOD DOES AS HE PLEASES

GOD IS HOLY and GOD IS GOOD

"Truth Made Simple is a friendly but potent deviation from the fluff that permeates the childrens' book market today. Mr. Todd came up in a generation that had more confidence in childrens' ability to assimilate deep spiritual truth. He provides a welcome addition to the library of any parent who is seriously discipling his child in the Scripture. The Address to Mothers alone is worth the price of the book! Its focus on eternity will encourage us to approach our daily discipling of our children with reverence and zeal." - Selah Helms, author or "Small Talks on Big Questions"

Richard Newton, who was called by Spurgeon "The Prince of Preachers to Children", said the following about John Todd: "When I was a young man I happened to read a volume of "Lectures for Children" which had been written and published by Dr. John Todd. I felt then as if I had found a gold mine. That volume lasted me all through college, and taught me how to talk to children."

This volume also includes an ADDRESS TO MOTHERS which is one of the finest brief essays we have ever read on the powerful influence of mothers on their children. It alone is worth the price of the book.

I CAN PLAY TOO!
Life-Changing Lessons from a Three-Legged Dog
Sharman Martin, with Photographs from Karim Shamsi-Basha

BRAND NEW TITLE - AVAILABLE TO SHIP.

Follow the adventures of Bo, a real-life, three-legged dog who lost his right leg in a terrible accident, but who persevered and won the heart of his new owner and the author of the book. Although this is written for young children, parents and teachers will find this story tugging at their hearts, as they see the value and integrity of all creatures of our God and King. You will learn how Bo persisted with his owner's other two dogs to finally convince them that "I Can Play Too." The primary purpose of this full color book is to teach children to treat all other children with respect no matter how different they may be. This is a powerful story!

The author wrote the following to explain how she plans to use the money she makes from the sale of her book: "Diversity...differences... and children. How do we teach our children to respect others and treat them equally, regardless of how they look? As an elementary school teacher for 24 years I see this as an important part of a child's social character. And with that concept in mind, I have written a picture book about a dog (my dog), who only has 3 legs. Throughout the story, Bo is shunned by the other dogs in the family because he looks different. As I teach Physical Education to Kindergarten through 3rd grade students daily, I know that the physically impaired children at my school just want to play with the other children. This book was written with those, and all special needs children who have some sort of impairment, in mind. I know that this book would be an asset in every elementary classroom and library. Any monies collected after the payment for the publishing of Bo's book will go toward getting Bo a front leg wheelchair, which will in turn take the stress off of his remaining front leg."

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Martin's 'I Can Play Too' is the PERFECT book that teaches so many different life lessons including acceptance, determination, and perseverance. As the guidance counselor in a school with over 750 children, I knew it was a book that all children could relate to the moment I read it for the first time. Bo, a sweet 3-legged lab, loved his two brothers so much, but they did not want to play with him because he was 'different' from them. It took them a little while to warm up to him. Once they did and let him play, they realized he could play too and was full of fun, regardless of his difference! All children can relate to Bo if they think about a time in their lives when they felt excluded or different in some way. Bo teaches us to celebrate these differences because being different is what makes us special. I would recommend this book to every teacher, counselor, and parent, as it is chock-full of wonderful life lessons at the turn of every page." - Dawn Norris, Guidance Counselor, Vestavia Hills Elementary West in Alabama

THE CHILD'S BOOK ON THE SOUL
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

This is considered the most remarkable book written by this extraordinary man. The Publisher read this to his four year old grandson and he was captivated by it and learned much about his immortal soul.

Henry Barnard, the distinguished promoter of public education, said the following about the book "The Child's Book on the Soul," 'This book exhibits Mr. Gallaudet's remarkable tact in bringing the most abstract subject within the grasp of the feeblest and youngest mind.'

"These volumes exerted in their day an influence it would be difficult to estimate. Hundreds of thousands of copies were circulated - they were translated into many languages, besides being reprinted and largely sold in England. They were read as English reading books in the schools of the Foreign Missionary Societies, and through these channels made themselves felt in unexpected places, even to the palace of the King of Siam." - The Life of Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, pp. 230-231.

LITTLE PILLOWS & MORNING BELLS
Two Classic Devotional Books for Children
Frances Havergal

"In 'Little Pillows' Frances' intent was to give children biblical truth to think about as they went to sleep. Each truth was to be like a little pillow---something comforting and supportive to rest upon during the night. She teaches through vivid word pictures that bring everyday images to a child's mind, thus linking the spiritual to the child's world. This is child evangelism as it should be: plain, simple, truthful, without manipulation or deceit."

- Carol Brandt

LITTLE PILLOWS is a precious little book filled with promises upon which young children can rest their heads as they go to bed each night. MORNING BELLS is the companion volume written to give these same children a passage to carry with them throughout the day.

A wonderful book to read to young children, and for them to read to each other as they grow older.

Old Paths for Little Feet
Carol Brandt

"Old Paths for Little Feet is a much needed work for our children. The poignant quotes from voices of the past coupled with Carol's insightful applications make a powerful combination. Christian mothers who are serious about imparting truth to their children on a daily basis will greatly value this practical work." - Mary K. Mohler, wife of Dr. Albert Mohler, Southern Seminary, Louisville, KY

"Carol Brandt provides a solid balance of theological teaching and helpful illustrations in leading our children in the Lord. Reminding us of the importance of sound biblical doctrine, she instructs parents on our unique responsibilities to teach and love our children, so that they know of their sin and of God's sovereignty, judgment, and abounding grace in Christ Jesus. I wholeheartedly recommend the book and its teaching!" -Michael H. Griffin, Elder, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

"Many good reasons could be given for publishing this book. I believe the most important reason is that all Christian teaching, all Christian experience must have a sound doctrinal foundation. In my opinion, the doctrinal emphasis is the most important part of the book."-from the Preface by Ernie Reisinger

THE PASTOR'S DAUGHTER
The Way of Salvation Explained to his Daughter by Rev. Edward Payson
Louisa Payson Hopkins

A unique glimpse into the home and heart of the remarkable Payson family of Portland, Maine, as Edward Payson lovingly leads his oldest daughter, Louisa, to genuine faith in Christ. It traces the struggles of a brilliant girl from the age of 4 to 14 as she seeks to come to Christ on her own terms, and not the Lord's.

Those who have loved "A Pastor's Sketches" by Ichabod Spencer will find themselves in familiar territory as Payson faithfully presses his daughter to repent and believe the Gospel. The chapters are brief and filled with illuminating illustrations that parents and pastors alike will find useful in presenting the claims of Christ and the demands of the Gospel upon sinners. There is nothing like this available anywhere!

It cannot be recommended too highly!

THE CHILD AT HOME
Living to Please God and Your Parents
John S.C. Abbott

"This book is intended for the children of those families to which 'The Mother at Home' has gone. It is prepared with the hope that it may exert an influence upon the minds of the children, in exciting grattitude for their parents' love, and in forming characters which shall ensure future usefulness and happiness." - From the author's Preface

John Abbott (1805-1877) was the brother of Jacob Abbott and the author of numerous works especially for children and young people. He was educated at Bowdoin college and Andover theological seminary, graduating from the former in 1825. He was ordained to the ministry in the Congregational church in 1830, and was settled successively at Worcester, Roxbury, and Nantucket, Mass. His first published work, "The Mother at Home," appeared in 1833, and was followed later that year by "The Child at Home." In 1844 he relinquished the pastorate, and devoted himself exclusively to literature, but occasionally resumed his ministerial labors for brief periods, and in 1866-'8 acted as state supply in New Haven.

"In a moving, illustrative way, Abbott's The Child at Home powerfully cultivates within children's consciences the need to honor God and their parents by promoting the need for heartfelt obedience, religious truth, genuine piety, biblical character traits, a sense of responsibility, and a dread of deception. The dozens of stories included make this book understandable for even very young children, while simultaneously retaining the interest of teenagers. Buy this book for every one of your children; better yet, read it aloud to them and discuss its contents together as a family." --Dr. Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

THE CHIEF END OF MAN:
An Exposition of the First Answer of the Shorter Catechism
John Hall with Introduction by B.B. Warfield

"Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever." This uncovered treasure is intended for all who desire to teach or to learn the purpose for whoich we were created. John Hall (1806-1894) is best known for his long-term friendship with J.W. Alexander, that later resulted in his two volume work which included the 800 letters he received from Alexander over their 40 year relationship.

This little gem is full of instruction on the reason we are here and the way that we can live to the glory of God and the enjoyment of God. Parents and children, teachers and pupils, pastors and congregation alike will benefit from this wonderful book.

An Introductory article by Benjamin Warfield adds to the value of this work.

THE CHILD'S BOOK ON THE FALL
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

"No other part of the Bible can be properly understood if Genesis 1-3 is misunderstood. The fall of our first parents into sin was both tragic and cataclysmic. The need and nature of the salvation that God provided in Jesus Christ cannot be appreciated where the events in the garden of Eden are underestimated. Children, as well as adults, need to learn this. Thomas Galluadet's book explains humanity's fall into sin in simple, clear language. It is designed for children but will help anyone think more carefully about what really happened when Adam and Eve turned away from God and plunged the human race into sin. I highly recommend it." -Tom Ascol

THE FALL OF MAN is a plain explanation of the origin of sin in the universe. Gallaudet leads children by the hand into the garden of Eden to help them see how our first parents fell into rebellion against their great and gracious Creator. The book concludes with a passionate appeal to the reader to "Go to Christ" who alone can save.

This book can be read to and by children 6-12 years old.

REPENTANCE & FAITH:
Explained and Illustrated for the Young
Charles Walker

Charles Walker was a brilliant and gifted man who was burdened to see the young taught the truth of God in their own language. In his own words: "The writer of the following little work has attempted to discuss important doctrines of the Gospel, and to urge its correspondent duty on the conscience of the reader. And he has attempted to do this in the language which children may understand, and in a form which may excite their attention."

This volume was originally published as two separate volumes on the gospel duties of Repentance and Faith. Examples are drawn from both Bible and Church history to demonstrate the difference between true and false faith, and true and false repentance.

This was originally published by The American Tract Society and went through many editions. C50

Along with the book "The Child's Book on the Soul" of all the books written by T.H. Gallaudet none had a more profound impact than this one.

It was translated into many languages, besides being reprinted and largely sold in England. It was read as an English reading book in the schools of the Foreign Missionary Societies, and through these channels made its way into unexpected places, even reaching the eyes and heart of the King of Siam."

Lectures to Children on Matters of Life and Death
John Todd

"This little work, after having passed through fifteen editions in this country (USA), and we know not how many in England, after having been translated into French, German, Greek, and many more languages, printed in raised letters for the blind, and last of all, having been adopted as a school-book for the liberated slaves at Sierra Leone, is now sent forth by the publishers in a new dress, with the addition of two new Lectures." - Author's Preface

John Todd (1800-1873) was a graduate of Yale College and Andover Theological Seminary. His theology was molded by the writings of Jonathan Edwards, and he had the privilege of pastoring Edwards Memorial Church in Northampton, MA.

William G. Blaikie said, "In preaching to the young, Dr. Todd has attained the first rank in this department of work. The American mind has such a proclivity to sharp, terse forms of expression, clever analogies and illustrations, keen analysis of feelings, vivid description and warm coloring, that we do not wonder that it should excel in addresses to which such qualities contribute so largely."

These lectures are the fruit of a ministry directed with conviction to the consciences of the young. From the opening page of these lectures the reader is addressed in such a personal way that he cannot but hear the words for himself.

Not only should these be read by and to children, but every pastor and Sunday School teacher should read it and learn the delicate art of speaking to children. This was a best seller in the middle of the 19th century, but it has been buried for more than 125 years. It is high time Todd was able to speak again for the cause of God and truth.

A MANUAL FOR THE YOUNG:
An Exposition of Proverbs 1-9
Charles Bridges

A Manual for the Young is a book that combines two works by Charles Bridges suited for and directed to those in the prime of life. The first, and larger part of this work, is Bridges justly famous Exposition of Proverbs 1-9, which is extracted from his complete Commentary on the Book of Proverbs. In his own words, in 1859 he published the first nine chapters of his exposition with the title A Manual for the Young, "in accordance with suggestions repeatedly made to me." The second, and briefer part, is called An Address to Young Persons After Confirmation, which was used for many years in both the US and the UK as a gift for those just entering the Christian life. It is a fitting conclusion to his exposition of Proverbs, and is here reprinted for the first time in more than a century.

Spurgeon said of Bridges work on Proverbs, "THE BEST WORK ON PROVERBS. The Scriptural method of exposition so well carried out by Bridges renders all his writings very suggestive to ministers. While explaining the passage in hand, he sets other portions of the Word in new light.

YOUNG PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS
Help and Hope for Today's Teenagers
J.R. Miller

"The most important of all lessons are those which teach us how to live. There come points and experiences in every young person's life when a word may give help, save from mistake, and make the way plain and clear. It is in the hope of throwing light on some of the questions which are sure to arise in young people's lives, that these chapters have been written. It is not claimed that all the 'problems' are here considered; but perhaps those eager to make life beautiful and rich will find a little help in some of these pages." -from the Author's Preface

Miller writes with a genuine love for the young as he addresses such pertinent topics as:

WHAT AM I HERE FOR?

ABOUT YOUR MOTHER

ABOUT YOUR FATHER

ABOUT YOUR FRIENDS

GETTING ALONG WITH PEOPLE

A HIGH SENSE OF HONOR

LEARNING CONTENTMENT

and 20 more brief but powerful chapters

"If any 19th century American Christian writer warrants reprinting, it is J.R. Miller! His writing style is delightfully smooth, his insights are spiritual diamonds on every page, and his pastoral applications are delivered with the skill of a well-seasoned physician of souls." - Pastor Bill Shishko, Franklin Square, NY

BIBLE PROMISES: Sermons for Children on God's Word as our Solid Rock
RICHARD NEWTON

In the prequel to BIBLE WARNINGS Richard Newton has eleven powerful sermons addressed to the minds and hearts of children on the "exceeding great and precious promises" of God. In his own words, "I have written these sermons about these promises, in the hope that my young friends, who read them, or hear them read, may be helped and encouraged in their efforts to love and serve the blessed Savior. My heart's desire and prayer to God is that His blessing may rest upon this book, and make it useful to the lambs of his flock."

C.H. Spurgeon said of this book, "Write on, good Dr. Newton, our children will never grow tired of your emblems and stories. Every teacher should read this book and then repeat it to his class."

As a writer he was distinguished for the elegance and purity of his style.

PEBBLES FROM THE BROOK
Sermons to Children Fighting the Good Fight of Faith
Richard Newton

"We all have giants to fight. Every form of sin is such a giant. We can only succeed in this warfare by following David's example. The brook, to which we must go for our pebbles, is the word of God. Every portion of truth from this word is a pebble for our use in this warfare. When Jesus, the Captain of our salvation, went forth into the wilderness, to be tempted of Satan, he was fighting the great father of all the giants. He fought and conquered him with pebbles from this brook. And if we seek the help of God, to enable us to use these pebbles, as our blessed master did, we shall be successful as he was." - from the Author's Preface

The sermons in this volume are as follows:

THE BEST CAPTAIN - Hebrews 2:10

THE BEST OF ALL BLESSINGS - Proverbs 3:15

HOW THE BIRDS PRAISE GOD - Matthew 6:26

THE DAY-SPRING'S VISIT - Luke 1:78

THE GOOD SOLDIER - 2 Timothy 2:3

THE CONQUEROR'S JEWEL - Exodus 28:19

THE WONDERFUL EYES - Proverbs 15:3

ACKNOWLEDGING GOD - Proverbs 3:6

THE CHILD'S PREACHER
A Series of Sermons on Systematic Theology for the Young
Alexander Fletcher, J.C. Ryle, John Crawshaw, Lyman A. Eddy, and Lowther J. Barrington with Introductory Lesson by C.H. Spurgeon

"THESE ARE SOLID AND EDIFYING, AND AT THE SAME TIME VIVACIOUS AND LIFE-LIKE ADDRESSES." -the Editor

Every family should have a copy of this marvelous volume of over 450 pages containing 33 sermons intended for the instruction of the heart and mind of children within the household and the church. Alexander Fletcher (1787-1860) was known as "the Children's Friend" and the man chosen to perform the marriage of Charles Haddon Spurgeon and Susannah Thompson. John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) was the gifted Bishop of Liverpool and author of numerous books, including his Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, intended to be used for Family Worship. Although not as well-known, Revs. Lowther Barrington, John Crawshaw, and Lyman A. Eddy were also men gifted and faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and especially concerned about the sound instruction of the little lambs of Christ's flock.

The Editor wrote the following in his Preface: "One important object of the present volume is to furnish practical hints, which may serve to encourage yonng ministers, and others who imagine it a difficult thing to preach to children, to make the attempt more frequently. It will be found that the variety of texts and subjects which may be adapted to children's capacities is almost endless.

The great requisites, in order to interest children, are plainness of speech and fertility of illustration. When these are employed, low and silly expressions are worse than useless, and trifling thoughts and foolish imaginations are a positive offense. It is perfectly practicable to adapt every essential, or strictly important religious topic, not only to the capacity, but even to the tastes of children; yea, to interest them deeply in such suhjects, and at the same time to preserve dignity of expression and purity of thought. How vastly important, therefore, is it for every minister to qualify himself for, and to habituate himself to, preaching the Gospel to children."

Rev. Lowther Barrington, preacher of the opening sermon of the book, was the author of a book by the same title. Of that book we are told, "These are a series of little sermons to children, delivered at a separate service instituted for them. They are, in our opinion, quite perfect in their way: we can hardly lay down the volume. Let all mothers by all means get this little tome, and read it to their children."

Introductory Lesson by C.H. Spurgeon: CHILDHOOD AND HOLY SCRIPTURE

Among the sermons are the following:

CREATION by Rev. L. Barrington

GOD'S WISDOM by Alexander Fletcher

GOD'S OMNIPRESENCE by Alexander Fletcher

GOD'S OMNISCIENCE by Alexander Fletcher

GOD'S LOVE by Alexander Fletcher

BIBLE ANIMALS
And Lessons Taught by Them for Children
Richard Newton

"We enter now on a new course of sermons for the young. The subject of these sermons will be Bible Natural History. We shall take up one after another of the different beasts and birds mentioned in the Bible, and, in their habits and characters, try to find illustrations of some of the truths taught us in the Bible, and of the duties that spring out of these truths." -from the Author

"Just the thing to put into the hands of the young folks. Dr. Newton is a prince among writers to the young." - The British Weekly

"For clearness, simplicity, and vigor of style, together with wealth of apt illustration, there are no books for the young that 'hold the field' with greater tenacity than those of Rev. Richard Newton. They are packed full of entertainment, always mingled with spiritual instruction of the best sort; and the inetrest is kept up by the breadth of the field from which the author gleans his anecdotes." - The Christian Leader

"Write on, good Dr. Newton, our children will never grow tired of your emblems and stories. Every teacher should read this book and then repeat it to his class.

BIBLE JEWELS
And Lessons Taught by Them for Children
Richard Newton

"Natural jewels are so valuable that many of us can never afford to buy them. Nor is this necessary, for we can be happy without them. But these BIBLE JEWELS are a thousand times more valuable, and without them we cannot be happy. Yet valuable as they are, the poorest person who reads this book, whether young or old, may become the owner of all the Bible jewels of which it speaks. And this is the reason why this book was written. The hope and prayer of the writer is that everyone who reads these pages may try to get all these precious Bible jewels." - from the Author's Preface

BIBLE MODELS
The Shining Lights of Scripture Applied to Children
Richard Newton

"Our dear Father in heaven has filled His blessed book - the Bible - with interesting histories of the lives and characters of great and good men who have been His servants and followers from the beginning of the world; so that we, who live in these later times, may learn of their thoughts and actions and be made better by them. The Apostle James shows us the use God intends we shall make of these histories, when he says: 'Take, my brethren, the prophets for an example.' This means we should study the lives of the holy men of whom we read in the Bible, until we get the model points of their character impressed upon our minds; and then by the grace of God we may be able to bring these virtues forth again in our own hearts and lives.

"The author of this book has endeavored to place before young readers, in a clear and forcible manner, the admirable traits of character possessed by some of the great men of the Bible. The advantages to be gained by following these BIBLE MODELS are plainly shown by many interesting stories drawn from actual life. It is hoped that not only young, but older persons also will find pleasure as well as profit in the pages of this volume; and that, perhaps, as they become familiar with the lofty examples held up to their gaze, their hearts will go out in earnest prayer that 'God may give them grace to follow His blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living, so they may come to the unspeakable joys which he has prepared for those who unfeignedly love Him.'" - from the Author's Preface

ABEL, THE MODEL SPEAKER - Hebrews 11:4

ENOCH, THE MODEL WALKER - Genesis 5:22

NOAH, THE MODEL WORKER - Genesis 6:22

JOB, THE MODEL OF PIETY - Job 1:1

ABRAHAM, THE MODEL OF FAITH - Romans 4:3

JOSEPH, THE MODEL REALIZER OF GOD'S PRESENCE - Genesis 39:9

MOSES, THE MODEL OF FAITHFULNESS - Hebrews 3:2

SAMUEL, THE MODEL OF EARLY PIETY - 1 Samuel 3:10

DAVID, THE MODEL OF PRAISE - Psalm 119:164

DAVID, THE MODEL USER OF GOD'S WORD - Psalm 119:97

JONATHAN, THE MODEL FRIEND - 2 Samuel 1:26

ELIJAH, THE MODEL REFORMER - 1 Kings 17:1

ELISHA, THE MODEL HELPER - 2 Kings 13:14

EBED-MELECH, THE MODEL OF KINDNESS - Jeremiah 38:8

NEHEMIAH, THE MODEL MAN OF BUSINESS - Nehemiah 6:3

DANIEL, THE MODEL OF DECISION - Daniel 10:11

GOD, THE MODEL GIVER - Acts 17:25

JOHN THE BAPTIST, THE MODEL OF GREATNESS - Luke 1:15

THE APOSTLE PAUL, THE MODEL OF EARNESTNESS - Philippians 3:14

JESUS, THE MODEL OF PERFECTION - Hebrews 5:9

"This book, having been written by such a distinguished author, containing his best thoughts and most interesting experiences, could hardly fail to be a valuable and meritorious work."

-This beautiful volume is enhanced by the Author's Preface being in the very handwrioting of the beloved Dr. Newton.

LEAVES FROM THE TREE OF LIFE
Sermons for Children on the Truths about Jesus that Heal the Soul
Richard Newton

"This book has much to say about healing. And to souls diseased by sin, as ours are, this is a matter of the greatest importance. We see its importance when we remember that one of the sweet names by which our blessed Savior is spoken of in the Old Testament is JEHOVAH-ROPHI, or 'The Lord who healeth.' The chief means that He makes use of in healing souls is the truth about Jesus, of which the Bible tells us. 'He sent His word, and healed them,' says David. It is more than 20 years ago since the writer of this book first engaged in the work of preaching to children, and making books of sermons. He was first led to do this by thinking on the words of Jesus to Peter, 'Lovest Thou me? Feed my lambs.' This is the twelfth volume he has been permitted to publish. This new volume is now sent forth as an expression of the writer's cordial love to the lambs of Jesus everywhere." - from the Author's Preface

Subjects covered are as follows:

THE BIBLE COMPARED TO A TREE OF LIFE - Revelation 22:2

THE LESSON OF OBEDIENCE - Luke 2:51

THE LEAF FOR CURING LYING - Psalm 120:2

THE LEAF FOR CURING COVETOUSNESS - Proverbs 3:9,10

THE LESSON OF PATIENCE - James 1:4

THE LEAF FOR HEALING IDLENESS - Ecclesiastes 9:10

THE LEAF FOR CURING PRIDE - James 4:6

THE LEAF FOR HEALING THE EVIL CONSCIENCE - Hebrews 10:22

NUTS FOR BOYS TO CRACK
Earthly Stories with a Heavenly Meaning
John Todd

John Todd (1800-1873) was a master teacher. He published about thirty volumes, all of which were re-issued in England, and several of them have been translated into German, French, modern Greek, Dutch, Danish, Italian, Arabic, Armenian, Turkish, and Tamil. His "Lectures to Children" have been printed in raised letters for the blind, and used as a schoolbook in the colony of Sierra Leone. Of some of his books several hundred thousand copies have been sold, and several of his shorter pieces, notably "Hafed's Dream," were for many years favorites for school readers.

His books FEED MY LAMBS and TRUTH MADE SIMPLE are sermons for children which have become very popular once again after being out of print for more than 125 years.

This book is filled with stories that will cause boys and young people to think about the heavenly meaning found in earthly stories. This book, like all John Todd's works, will both entertain and inform. Todd loved children and he sought always to speak their language without being silly and childish. He always had eternity in view and desired that all who read his books would be brought into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

RICHARD NEWTON, himself the 'Prince of Preacher to the young' (according to CH Spurgeon), said that he learned how to teach children from reading one of the books of John Todd.

WILLIAM G. BLAIKIE, in his outstanding book called 'For the Work of the Ministry' said the following about John Todd, "In preaching to the young, some American ministers have been highly successful; such men as Dr. John Todd and Dr. Richard Newton have attained the first rank in this department of work."

GIRLS: FAULTS AND IDEALS
A Familiar Talk with Quotations from Letters
Introduction, Commentary and Study Guide
Includes a Seven Day Guide and Commentary For Ladies
J.R. MILLER, with Introduction, Commentary & Study Guide by Ray & Lori Rhodes

Girls: Faults and Ideals was first published in 1892. The work before you contains the original text with minor changes and updates. On many pages we have inserted Scripture readings and an occasional comment. When there is a comment the initials LR are included for Lori Rhodes and RR for Ray Rhodes. We have also included a seven day guide and commentary for ladies. It will be very helpful to the reader to look up all Scripture references and to use the commentary/study guide at the conclusion of the book. Though this book is specifically designed for girls and ladies (ages ten to twenty-nine) we think that women of all ages will find it useful. We also believe that this book, as it is presently designed, will be helpful to parents as they seek to raise daughters to be both inwardly and outwardly beautiful. Many girls from age ten and up will be able to read and grasp the basic concepts of this book. Younger ladies will benefit as their parents guide them through the pearls of wisdom contained in this book.

"J.R. Miller was one of the most gifted and godly men of his generation. Raised in a godly home he was privileged to see grace worked out in the family setting. He had a special gift of reaching to the hearts of the young, and in this book he lays bare the highest virtues and the lowest vices of young ladies. Although written more than 100 years ago it is as relevant as the day it was written." - Michael Gaydosh, Solid Ground Christian Books

"This simple little volume is filled with rich, godly wisdom that gladdened and challenged my heart. With insight and charm, Ray and Lori Rhodes' comments and the Word to Parents at the end add perspective and a personal touch, while the study guide brings this late 19th century classic into the 21st century, showing us how to apply its truths to our lives." - Constance K. Walker, Editor and Translator, of several books by Solid Ground

SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG
With Critical Illustrations and Practical Remarks
Volumes One - Five
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

These volumes are intended to take children and young people by the hand to lead them through the fascinating stories of the leading characters in the Old Testamernt Scriptures. Every chapter concludes with pointed and practical application to the hearts of the readers. The author is convinced that "the facts of the Bible should form a considerable part of a child's religious reading, instead of that mass of fictitious narrative which, at present, so greatly abounds."

These are perfect for Family Devotions and would be appropriate to use with children from 5 years old to the late teens. We have read nothing like these volumes.

THE SCRIPTURE GUIDE:
A Familiar Introduction to the Study of the Bible
James W. Alexander

"The great end of all religious teaching would be attained, if men could be brought to read the Bible aright. No books, therefore, are unimportant, which point to the Holy Scriptures. Such is the present attempt, which is expressly dedicated to the YOUNG. It is intended for excitement as well as instruction; not only to communicate information and explain difficulties, but to offer inducements for the study of the Bible." - from the author's Preface

"This fascinating book by a superb theologian and pastor provides a wealth of information about the Bible and serves as an able introductory guide to Bible study as well as an effective evangelistic tool. The directions given in the last chapters on how to read the Bible are themselves worth the price of the book." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke

James W. Alexander (1804-1859) was the oldest son of Archibald Alexander. In addition to being a brilliant lecturer and preacher in college, seminary and the local church, Alexander labored to write books that would speak to the hearts and minds of the simple. He wrote numerous volumes for The American Sunday School Union that were unusually popular with all ages and all classes of people. THIS MAY BE HIS BEST CONTRIBUTION TO THAT DISTINGUISHED MINISTRY.

Written in the form of a story, Alexander has two young boys spend the Christmas holiday with their elderly Uncle Austin, who has earned the nickname "The Bible Man." Follow these young fellows as they enjoy their vacation by learning life-changing lessons from the Holy Scriptures. The final three chapters set forth 30 Directions for Studying the Bible. These are worth the price of the book!

MY BROTHER'S KEEPER
Letters to a Younger Brother on the Virtues and Vices, Duties and Dangers of Youth
James W. Alexander

This is the second in our series of "American Sunday School Union Classic Reprints." It first appeared in 1838 written by J.W. Alexander (1804-1859). It is a timeless example of how an older brother should admonish and encourage a younger brother.

Topics covered in the letters include:

On Reading the Scriptures, Gratitude to Parents

Shortness of Life, Early Rising, Bodily Exercise

Habits of Diligence, Friendships & the Danger of Evil Companions

Truth and Falsehood, Evil Speaking, Secret Prayer

The Great Concern: the Salvation of your Soul

Although a brilliant pastor and professor, Alexander wrote each letter with his youngest brother in mind, and thus in simple, straightforward language. Superbly written!

"My Brother's Keeper is a most helpful book, containing practical, godly advice for older children and early teens on a great variety of subjects. Though a bit dated at times, most of Alexander's advice is packed with wisdom and will greatly assist those youth who desire to dedicate their lives to God. His advice on reading the Scriptures, showing gratitude to parents, and avoiding bad friendships is particularly clear and beneficial. Every young person should read this book and pray for strength to implement its wise counsel." - Joel Beeke

"These letters are wonderful! Not only are they overflowing with practical wisdom for young men but they also exemplify the kind of fraternal love that ought to characterize our Lord's disciples. This is a useful tool for men who want to encour-age and help younger men become faithful followers of Christ." - Tom Ascol

JESUS THE WAY:
The Child's Guide to Heaven
Edward Payson Hammond

Edward Payson Hammond spent much of his life and ministry traveling the world to preach the Gospel, with a special emphasis upon children. His labors were honored by men like C.H. Spurgeon, Andrew Bonar, W.S. Plumer and multitudes of others. When he wrote letters to some of the leading ministers of the nineteenth century he asked their opinion about the vital subject addressed in this book: the conversion of children. Here are a couple responses he received:

"My conviction is that our converts from among children are among the very best we have. I should judge them to have been more numerously genuine than any other class, more constant, and in the long run more solid." - Charles H. Spurgeon

"In awakenings that have been given us, the cases of young people have been as entirely satisfactory as any cases we have had. If conversion be God's work, in which the Holy Spirit reveals Christ to the soul, surely His work can take place in children as really as in the old." - Andrew Bonar

In his book "The Children of Church Members" Richard Fuller wrote the following:

" It has appeared by the best evidence the nature of the subject admits, that divine grace has frequently produced the conversion of children when they were very young; and when they are thus brought up under the religious care of both their parents and the church, it may be rationally expected the blessing will be frequently afforded."

This volume will immediately capture the attention of the youngest children as Hammond relates his experience of first entering his journey to the city of Jerusalem. Each of the first four chapters is a moving appeal to children to turn from sin to trust the Savior of sinners. The final chapter is addressed to those who have come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

A powerful book to present the gospel to children 6-12 years old.

EARLY PIETY ILLUSTRATED
Memoir of Nathan W. Dickerman, the Little Sufferer, Whose Testimony Touched Hearts the World Over
Gorham Abbott

This volume contains the incrdible story of the conversion and death bed of a young boy who died nearly three months prior to his 8th birthday. Nathan Dickerman (1822-1830) was not raised in a godly home but one day a Sabbath School Teacher invited him to come to his class. This was the beginning of Nathan's dramatic conversion.

Dying of consumption, Nathan demonstrated such unusual depths of humility and love for Christ that there was a steady stream of pastors and Sabbath School Teachers who would sit by his bed and minister to him. More often than not they would leave the greater blessed.

Gorham Abbott, brother of John & Jacob, was assigned the priviliged task of keeping a journal of the last months of Nathan's life. This he did with great tenderness and care.

This is a book for every parent, pastor, teacher and child. It sets forth a heart-warming example of how Jesus Christ tenderly cares for his little lambs. It will be a strong rebuke to those who question whether or not children can experience genuine conversion.

LECTURES ON THE BIBLE TO THE YOUNG
for Their Instruction and Excitement
John Eadie

In March 1848 John Eadie (1810-1876) sent forth this volume with the desire to instruct and excite young people concerning the value of the Bible. The response was so encouraging that four years later he issued a revised and enlarged edition, which is here offered to the public for the first time in more than a century.

"Though written for the rising generation, these plain addresses are not meant for mere children. Simplicity has, indeed, been aimed at in their style and arrangement, in order to adapt them to a class of young readers whose minds have already enjoyed some previous training and discipline. They are designed to stimulate thought, as well as impart information. The object of their publication is not only to promote present improvement, but also to foster in the youthful spirit a hallowed taste for further study in the best of all the sciences." - From the Author's Preface

After a brief Introduction Eadie sets before his readers the following six heads:

READ THE BIBLE

UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE

BELIEVE THE BIBLE

REMEMBER THE BIBLE

PRACTICE THE BIBLE

CIRCULATE THE BIBLE

THE YOUTH'S BOOK ON NATURAL THEOLOGY
Thomas H. Gallaudet

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults.

"Natural Theology is not learned from the Bible. It is all that can be known about God, merely by examining the beings and things which he has made, without the aid of revealed Theology."

This book is written as a sequel to the Child's Book on the Soul and uses the same form of dialogues between Mrs. Stanhope and her son Robert, who is a few years older in this book than in the former.

According to Gallaudet's biographer, "This book exerted an influence in its day that would be hard to estimate. Thousands of copies were circulated. It was translated into many languages, besides being reprinted and largely sold in England. It was read as an English reading book in the schools of the Foreign Missionary Societies, and through these channels made its way into unexpected places, even reaching the eyes and heart of the King of Siam."

ADVICE TO A YOUNG CHRISTIAN
On the Importance of Aiming at an Elevated Standard of Piety
Jared B. Waterbury with Introductory Essay by Archibald Alexander

This was originally released in 1827 by an anonymous author simply called A Village Pastor with an outstanding Introductory Essay by Archibald Alexander. It went on to be one of the best selling books by the American Tract Society. It was also published in the UK by the Religious Tract Society of London where it became very popular.

"Years ago, my wife 'found an old book' for me at a flea market. It was an 1843 printing of ADVICE TO A YOUNG CHRISTIAN On the Importance of Aiming at an Elevated Standard of Piety by a Village Pastor. (The title alone is instructive!) Since that day, I have loved this sweet little volume and have hoped someone would reprint it! It has often been useful to me as a devotional prod toward my own spiritual duties. I've read snippets in family worship and in prayer meetings, and I've shared portions with guests around the table on Lord's Day afternoons. Originally penned as private letters by a pastor to a young woman in his charge, these brief chapters are striking in the warm and winsome care that the writer shows for the eternal prosperity of his young reader. Fellow pastors will also be challenged by the extent of this man's effort toward the well being of a single young lamb, 'until Christ be formed' in her (Gal. 4:19). May these very pastoral encouragements once again achieve the author's 'ardent prayer' that they may comfort and edify many." - Pastor Murray Wilson, Trinity Reformed Baptist Church, Baltimore, MD

"To the lambs of Christ's flock, whom Peter was enjoined by the Good Shepherdf to feed, I dedicate this little book. The letters which compose it were written to instruct one of their number, the daughter of a highly valued friend. Since they are now made public, it is the ardent prayer of the author, that they may comfort and edify many more." - the Author

"The following letters are well calculated to turn the attention of the Christian public to the importance of diligence and punctuality in performing the duties of the closet. They were forwarded to me by an esteemed young clergyman, who is settled as a pastor in a distant and retired village. These letters are seasonable, judicious, and pious, and that as they are written in an animated style they will be extensively perused by the young." - Archilbald Alexander

THE YOUNG SERGEANT, THE TRIUMPHANT SOLDIER
A True Story from the Civil War for the Young
Mary A. Denison

"The world is a battle-field and the Christian is the true soldier. There are enemies to fight in the counting room, or the retreat from business, or even in the home-circle, for him who has put on the armor of God. Some of these are represented in this little volume. 'The Young Sergeant,' with whose glorious death this story ends, was a veritable personage. He received his wound at the Battle of Big Bethel, and we could name the clergyman whose sad duty it became to soothe his last moments - sad, yet joyful, for the Young Sergeant, 'Beheld his victory won, And stood complete at last.'"

A powerful story for young and old alike, written by Mary Andrews Denison (1826-1911), a gifted and godly author who penned over 60 volumes. The story is divided into four parts, with each section highlighting the words of the great hymn, "Soldier's of Christ Arise."

PART FIRST - The Hero Soldier

PART SECOND - The Silent Soldier

PART THIRD - The Youthful Soldier

PART FOURTH - The Triumphant Soldier

ADDRESSES TO THE YOUNG:
Immanuel: Christ's Names, Titles and Excellencies
Alexander Fletcher

"We do not know of any terms that can adequately express the value of these Addresses."--BRITISH MOTHERS' MAGAZINE

"A little work of great merit. Dr. Fletcher, better than any other living man, is fitted for a juvenile auditory. It is a charming volume for the young." -STANDARD OF FREEDOM

Alexander Fletcher (1787-1860) was known as "The Children's Friend", as well as the man who performed the wedding of Charles Haddon Spurgeon and Susannah Thompson.

Of the aged Dr. Fletcher, Spurgeon said the following: "I think if I needed an illustration of one who as often as I saw him, always seemed to be fruit fully ripe, and whose recent death thoroughly well justifies my belief, I might refer to that venerable and excellent servant of God, Dr. Alexander Fletcher. He had in his youth sharp and severe trials and troubles, but they helped to ripen him. He had to bear up continually with arduous labor, always sweetened with unusual success. My acquaintance with him was only in the declining years of his life. He was always as I knew him, an example of a ripe Christian. He had always a kind word ready upon his tongue, and never wanted a generous thought bubbling up in his heart. If an enemy spoke against you, he would say, "Never mind them, let them write until they wear the nibs from their pens, and do not answer them." Ah! I dare say many of you have seen him during this last year or two. That noble countenance, that fatherly expression, that overflowing love, were all signs that he was getting ready for the hand of the blessed Master to take him to himself. God forbid we should have wished him to be here longer! Was he not ripe? Let him then be taken home, God forbid we should have desired that he had gone earlier; he would not have been ripe, but when fully ripe the Master removed him."

SIX BOYS: FROM BOYHOOD TO MANHOOD
A Mother's Story of God's Faithfulness
As Told by Some Extracts from Her Journal
Mary E. Bennett

This touching and instructive title was first published by the American Tract Society in 1871, and expresses the heart of the entire book in the words of the Psalmist: "Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the Lord" (Psalm 27:14).

"The American Tract Society has not done amiss in giving to the public, in a very excellent form, "Six Boys: A Mother's Story." It is well conceived, and, in general, has a remarkable naturalness about it. The conversations are home-like. The 'heroic' and the 'tender' sentiments are less prominent than in most books of this class. Many a mother, widowed or not, will find useful and suggestive experiences in this very readable volume. In some particulars they will be reminded of "Stepping Heavenward" which is saying a good deal in commendation of this work." - The Congregational Quarterly

The book commences with a journal entry dated Sunday Evening, December 1st, 1801. It begins by announcing the sad fact that the godly and beloved father of the family of six boys died but four weeks earlier. The opening words of the journal set the tone for the entire work: "This evening, my son Elias came to me, apart from his brothers, and, after standing beside me a moment in silence, asked, with earnest, sorrowful face, if I would write down on paper, for his own keeping, his father's last words to him. I cannot tell why the child made the request; but perhaps he feels the natural lightness of boyish spirits rising fast again from the heavy sorrow that fell upon them four weeks ago, and with a tender, thoughtful heart, fears to lose the impressions and resolves of that sad hour."

"While writing those precious words for my son, I thought it might be a comfort and a help to me also to have recorded here my dear husband's last directions and encouragements to me, lest in the lapse of years, or the pressure of business and cares, they should ever be less distinctly remembered, or less frequently referred to. I would have them the law of my conduct, next to the Holy Scriptures. As I went to him, living, for counsel and cheer, so now I may come here, and read over, for my general help in the conduct of life, the words that he left when dying."

"SIX BOYS reaches back into Christian America to reveal a depth of character and dignity in families that typically escapes our shallow fare. This book affords great opportunity to explore the thoughtful faith of our heritage expressed through the grief of a humble family." -Selah Helms, author of "Small Talks on Big Questions"

THE BOYHOOD OF MARTIN LUTHER
The Sufferings Of The Heroic Little Boy Who Afterwards Became The Great German Reformer
Henry Mayhew

A rare look at the life of Martin Luther as a child and a young man, written by a British journalist who lived for two years in the areas where the story of young Luther unfolds. This historical novel will introduce the reader to the incredible sufferings of the one who was to "turn the world upside-down" for Jesus Christ. Mayhew was a gifted writer who sought to tell the story of young Luther with a wonderful combination of sympathy and accuracy.

In addition to the rivetting story, there are 8 excellent illustrations that will help to visualize the various stages of Luther's boyhood. We hope to have this volume available in early January 2007, and plan to release it in conjunction with the two small volumes of John Calvin as a young man.

CHILDREN'S TEMPTATIONS
George Wagner

These words of a Pastor to the " lambs" of his flock will have a peculiar significance for those to whom he ministered with such affectionate interest; for whilst he was considering their "temptations" amid much weakness and weariness in a distant land, he was called away to his eternal "rest," so that to these "little ones," most especially, he " being dead yet speaketh."

BIBLE BLESSINGS
Lessons for Children on the Rich Blessings in the Bible
Richard Newton

"In preparing this little volume I feel as if I had been doing very much the same thing that was done by the spies that Moses sent into the promised land. I have been walking, as it were, through the pleasant fields of the Bible, and gathering specimens of its blessings. The Bible is a book of blessings. It is intended to make people happy in this life, as well as in the life to come. It would take, not one book merely, but a library of books, to tell all the blessings spoken of in the Bible. If the few samples of them here presented shall lead any one who reads this book to love the Bible more, and to seek a larger share in its rich blessings, I shall feel abundantly rewarded for the labor bestowed upon it." - from the Author's Preface

Richard Newton was called "The Prince of Preachers to the young" by no less than Charles H. Spurgeon.

Solid Ground Christian Books is commited to reprinting the books of this brilliant and humble servant of Jesus Christ who sought to preach one sermon each month to the children of his flock. Every month for years over 500 children sat at his feet as he opened the Scriptures to them.

We are honored to bring these great volumes back into print!

Some of the messages in this volume are as follows:

THE BLESSEDNESS OF HEARING THE GOSPEL

SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG
The History of Josiah, The Young King of Judah
Thomas H. Gallaudet

THIS IS A BONUS VOLUME TO THE SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG SERIES

THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE

"The author adds one more volume, for children and youth, to the list of Scripture biographies. He rejoices that others too have been engaged in similar labors. As a father, he longs for the time when the histories which God himself directed to be written for our instruction and that of our offspring, may be prepared for their perusal, interwoven with such elucidations and instructions, and made the basis of such exhortations and admonitions, as will attract their attention, with an increasing interest, to the divinely inspired record, and lead them to regard the facts of the Bible as the most important facts to be known and pondered in the whole circle of their reading.

He will only add, that his own attention has been arrested by the character of Josiah, as one that cornbines traits of peculiar excellence, which deserve to be strikingly illustrated and set before our children and youth, as models of imitation and incentives to duty.

How far he has succeeded in attempting to do this, the public will decide. If the book does good, especially to the souls of children and youth, his highest wishes will be answered."

FACTS ABOUT BOYS, FOR BOYS
A Selection of Interesting and Instructive Facts and Incidents of a Moral and Religious Character
Rev. John Crawshaw

THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE -

"The importance of imbuing the youthful mind with scriptural and religious truth cannot be too highly estimated. Could we but raise up a 'Godly seed,' most of the evils under which society groans would be removed. No judiciously applied efforts which have this object in view, however small in themselves, ought to be regarded as trivial; for, at no season in life is truth so likely to make a lasting impression as in youth. It is almost impossible to bend the sturdy oak, but the tender sapling may be easily trained; and though you can seldom produce much impression on the mind of an old man, you may easily do it upon the minds of children.

The writer having paid some attention to the young, and being in the habit of frequently addressing them, sometimes in large numbers, has noticed that a narration of appropriate and well-selected facts has arrested their attention when other means have failed. He has also noticed that facts are retained in their memory much longer than mere theoretical lessons.

This suggested the idea of the following selection, and should it be favourably received, as the writer has reason to believe it will be, 'Facts about Girls,' and also 'Facts about Mothers and Children,' which are nearly ready for the press, will shortly be published.

As this book is really and professedly a selection, the writer has not thought it needful to mention the numerous sources whence he has obtained the facts narrated. He gratefully acknowledges his obligation to many individuals whom he need not name. He also begs to state that he has taken considerable pains to prevent the admission of any incidents which appear to be of doubtful origin, and he hopes that in this he has succeeded.

Perhaps the question may be asked,'Is this book for little boys or big ones?' It is FOR BOTH. There are in it many interesting and instructive facts both about little and big boys; from which, any boy, be he young or old, may learn many useful and important lessons."

ONE ATTRACTIVE FEATURE OF THIS BOOK IS THE BREVITY OF NEARLY ALL THE 130 "FACTS" THAT ARE INCLUDED.

A SAMPLE: KING EDWARD VI AN EXAMPLE TO YOUTH

This amiable prince was the son of Henry VIII. Edward was much beloved; he was a prince of fine accomplishments and excellent qualities. He was proclaimed January 31st, 1547, and crowned February 20th. In his reign many learned reformers took refuge inEngland, on whom this princely youth bestowed pensions. He kept a journal, which is preserved in the British Museum, in which he regularly entered all the important transactions of his reign. He was eminently pious. He confirmed his father's grant of Christ's and St. Bartholomew's hospitals, and founded Bridewell and St. Thomas's hospitals. He also founded several schools, which were mostly endowed out of the church lands. Edward is celebrated by historians for the beauty of his person, the sweetness of his disposition, and the extent of his knowledge. By the time he had attained his sixteenth year, he understood the Greek, Latin, French, Italian, and Spanish languages; he was versed in the sciences, of logic, music, natural philosophy; and master of all the theological disputes; insomuch that the famous Hyeronymus Cardomus, in his return from Scotland, visiting the English court, was astonished at the progress he had made in learning, and afterwards extolled him in his works as a prodigy of nature. But his stay in this world was short. He died of consumption, aged sixteen years. Mr. Bradford, the martyr, said of this excellent prince, "That he judged him to be the noblest person in the kingdom." At one time, some of his courtiers urging state reasons, pressed him to take a step he could not approve; when he showed from the scriptures how improper that would be, and added, "I am resolved rather to lose my life, and all that I have, than agree to what I know to be unjust." Continuing their instances, the king burst into tears, witnessing his tenderness and zeal for the truth by much weeping. At this the courtiers were melted; they wept with him, took their leave, and withdrew. Returning, they met with Dr. Cheek, who had a great share in the education of the king: Archbishop Cranmer took him by the hand, and said, "Ah, Mr. Cheek, you may be glad all your days, that you have such a scholar. He hath more divinity in his little finger than we have in our whole bodies!"

FACTS ABOUT GIRLS, FOR GIRLS
A Selection of Interesting and Instructive Anecdotes
Rev. Richard Donkersley

This book is the perfect companion to the book FACTS ABOUT BOYS, FOR BOYS. This book does for girls of all ages what the previous book does for boys. It is filled with 120 incidents and anecdotes intended to instruct girls about living a life that will please the Lord and do much good to others.

The words of John Crawshaw drawn from the Preface of the companion volume are just as applicable for this book for girls:

"The importance of imbuing the youthful mind with scriptural and religious truth cannot be too highly estimated. Could we but raise up a 'Godly seed,' most of the evils under which society groans would be removed. No judiciously applied efforts which have this object in view, however small in themselves, ought to be regarded as trivial; for, at no season in life is truth so likely to make a lasting impression as in youth.

TRUTH MADE SIMPLE:The Attributes of God for Children by John Todd

"I often reflect that the most important thing about you is what you believe about God because it will inform the way you live and determine your ultimate destiny. This little book is a polychrome primer that will be sure to inform and expand the hearts of little souls. Jenny Brake is to be congratulated for her - magical illustrations. I love what she did. The binding and the cover and the red marker suggest that this is a fine book -- which it ,indeed, is. Excellent in every way!" - R. Kent Hughes

"This is perhaps the best children's book I've seen. Perfectly pitched and gorgeously presented, it makes getting into essential truths so easy. Next to a children's Bible, this is a real must for all parents with little ones." - Michael Reeves, Director of Union and Senior Lecturer, Wales Evangelical School of Theology

"It is never too early to begin training our children to know the Lord and his Word. There are few resources that are better suited for young children than Everything a Child Should Know About God. It presents the deepest truths in the simplest ways, and encourages both knowledge and trust. I highly recommend it." - Tim Challies, Associate Pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Toronto, ON; blogger, challies.com

Truth clearly taught, simply applied and beautifully illustrated.

NATURE'S WONDERS
Sermons to Children on How God's Works Praise Him
Richard Newton

"This volume is sent forth as an experiment. It goes but a little way into the great department to which it refers. It only presents a few flowers, gathered as specimens from God's great garden. These sermons have cost me more labor than any I have yet published for the young. I trust, however, they may be of service in helping the young to 'look through nature up to nature's God,' and in showing them that the God who speaks so lovingly to us in the Bible is the same God whose wisdom, power and goodness are so wonderfully displayed in the sun, moon, stars, clouds, mountains, seas, rivers, trees, flowers, and other glorioius works around us." - from the Author's Preface

HOW GOD'S WORKS PRAISE HIM - Psalm 145:10

HOW THE SUN PRAISES GOD - Psalm 148:3

HOW THE MOON PRAISES GOD - Psalm 148:3

HOW THE STARS PRAISE GOD - Psalm 148:3

HOW THE STARS PRAISE GOD - Psalm 148:3

HOW THE LIGHT PRAISES GOD - Psalm 148:3

HOW THE AIR PRAISES GOD - Psalm 150:1

HOW THE CLOUDS PRAISE GOD - Exodus 16:10

HOW THE TREES PRAISE GOD - Isaiah 55:12

HOW THE FLOWERS PRAISE GOD - Matthew 6:28

"These volumes abound in religious instruction suitable to young persons, and are presented in a form excellently calculated to engage attention." - The Bookseller

"These bright sermons, studded with anecdote, will gain a loving hearing from the little people." - British Messenger

"Ministers, Sabbath-school teachers, and those who address children's churches, will find much material to help them in the difficult work of presenting religious truth in a form attractive to the young." - United Presbyterian Record

BIBLE WONDERS
Sermons to Childen on the Wondrous Things of Scripture
Richard Newton

"The world is full of wonders, if only we had eyes to see them. But there are more wonders in the Bible, and greater wonders, too, then are to be found anywhere else. There are wonders of wisdom here, and wonders of love, and wonders of power, and wonders of goodness that are perfectly surprising. But we need the help of God to enable us to see these wonders. And this is just the help David was trying to get when he offered the prayer, 'Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.' Psalm 119:18. The attempt has been made in this book to speak of a few of these wonders, in the hope that some who read it may be lead to study the Bible with more interest, and try with increasing earnestness to find out more of the wonderful things contained in it." - from the Author's Preface

The "Prince of Preachers to Children" once again opens the Scriptures in a way that will both instruct and entertain everyone who reads it. The subjects include:

"THY TESTIMONIES ARE WONDERFUL"

"HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED WONDERFUL"

"THERE IS A GOD IN HEAVEN THAT REVEALETH SECRETS"

"I AM THE LIVING BREAD WHICH CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN"

"YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN"

"THE GOLD OF THAT LAND IS GOOD"

"WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME, HE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU."
