The Bible is a big Book, and we are blessed to have such a collection of inspired writing – the Word of God – at our finger tips. Yet, due to its sheer volume, fine print and writing style, children usually find it difficult to pick up and read a standard version of the Bible. THE BIBLE MADE EASY – FOR KIDS by Dave Strehler is aimed at helping children make sense of the Bible by engaging them in practical ways to make learning about the Bible fun and interesting. THE BIBLE MADE EASY – FOR KIDS guides children through the Bible by: • answering some of the most common questions they have about the events and characters in the Bible • providing interesting facts to stimulate them and get them excited • offering visual descriptions of what they read to help them remember • drawing modern-day comparisons to certain Bible concepts/traditions and putting it into context • word definitions • Question and Answer sections that assess whether they can remember what they’ve read. Included are hyperlinks to make navigating through stories a breeze. Just click on the links provided in the text to jump to the relevant story.

Waking Up

A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion

For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’s latest New York Times bestseller is a guide to meditation as a rational practice informed by neuroscience and psychology. From Sam Harris, neuroscientist and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books, Waking Up is for the twenty percent of Americans who follow no religion but who suspect that important truths can be found in the experiences of such figures as Jesus, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history. Throughout this book, Harris argues that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow, and that how we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the quality of our lives. Waking Up is part memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris—a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic—could write it.
