Summary

Entertaining, thought-provoking depictions of classic Bible stories Renowned mythologist Bernard Evslin finds a powerful balance of tradition and modernity in his strongly realized retellings of Old Testament stories. His rendition reflects the literary style of the King James Bible and stays true to the Old Testament worldview and spirit—but also uses streamlined descriptions and dialogue, to balance the archaic language that can deter contemporary readers. Here you’ll find fresh versions of the iconic stories of Adam and Eve; Lot’s daughters; Jacob’s ladder; David and Goliath; Rebecca at the well; the twin brothers Jacob and Esau; and more, in a style that engages both the senses and the imagination.

    In this classic story Dr. R.C. Sproul continues his project of illustrating theological concepts for children. The Priest with Dirty Clothes teaches the concept of imputation, which lies at the heart of the important biblical doctrine of justification.Using the story of Joshua the high priest (Zechariah 3:1–5) as his jumping–off point, Dr. Sproul weaves a classic tale about a young priest who is invited to preach his first sermon before the king and his court. But on his way to the palace, he falls from his horse, getting his clothes hopelessly muddy. Jonathan finds that he needs powerful help if he is to stand before the king. This edition of The Priest with Dirty Clothes includes all–new illustrations by Justin Gerard and a new “For the Parents” section to help them bring out the truths of the book for their children.

The bright star was their guide as they traveled over mountains to see the Savior of the world. “We three kings of Orient are bearing gifts we traverse afar. Field and fountain, moor and mountain, following yonder star. Born a King on Bethlehem's plain, gold I bring to crown Him again. King forever, ceasing never over us all to reign. O star of wonder, star of night, star with royal beauty bright, westward leading still proceeding, guide us to the perfect light.” What gifts would you bring to Jesus? Young readers will enjoy singing this classic carol that celebrates the gifts brought to Jesus. Other audio books in the Christmas Carol series include: The First Noel, Angels We Have Heard On High, and Away In A Manger.

    Mary was the beloved daughter of a sailor and his wife who lived on a hill close to the sea. The rhyme calls her "Mistress Mary, quite contrary" because sad to say she was a contrary child often doing the exact opposite of what her mother and father advised for no reason but that she did not wish to follow their advice. But her parents loved her and knew that she would some day grow out of this peevish behavior. One day her father and brothers were to leave on a long sea journey and she asked him "	And how long will you be gone, papa?" He responded Why, just this, sweetheart," returned the sailor gravely; "all the time that it takes the cowslips and dingle-bells and cockle-shells to sprout from the ground, and grow big and strong, and blossom into flower, and, yes—to wither and die away again—all that time shall your brothers and I sail the seas. But when the cold winds begin to blow, and the flowers are gone, then, God willing, we shall come back to you; and by that time you may have grown wiser and bigger, and I am sure you will have grown older. So one more kiss, sweetheart, and then we must go, for our time is up." 
    After he left, Mistress Mary decided to plant a garden of these flowers to know when her father and brothers would return and that garden is what the poem is talking about. But it did not happen as she expected! Oh no! Listen to this delightful story to see how Mary learned to not be so contrary.
