Helping Public Schools Bridge the Gap
People too often believe they have no way to get involved in public schools, but it's just not true. Did you know that a church can sponsor a prom? or that your company CEO can give an in class lecture? How would you like to be the person to instill patriotic pride into our nation's children? Or produce the next school play? How about helping your school's team win the State Championship?

These questions and many more are answered in this imaginative book written by renowned children's expert, Jim Schmidt. With over 25 years experience working in child development as "Armadillo Jim" he knows what it takes to motivate and inspire our nation's youth.

Understanding Genesis: How to Analyze, Interpret, and Defend Scripture
There are many opinions and subsequent interpretations on the Book of Genesis. What did the author of Genesis intend and how can we possibly know, or is the important thing only what the Bible “means to you”? In this book, Dr. Jason Lisle answers questions such as:

What are the most common mistakes people make in trying to understand Genesis?
What are the necessary rules of biblical interpretation, and what is the proper role of science in understanding the Bible?
How does one identify the various types of biblical literature, and how do the rules of interpretation handle each type poetic, prophetic, historical, etc.?

Is there one correct interpretation of the Bible, or are there many? Discover why alternative positions are rationally impossible. Unlock a powerful understanding of God’s Word and equip yourself with a reasoned defense against those who distort the Word of God.
