Why Michelangelo?

31 Dec 2015 / 0 Comments / in Uncategorized

I met Nancy Sanders, a talented children’s author, two years ago, through the popular 32 Authors Online Scavenger Hunt. We have since become friends and she has been a source of advice and even comfort in the difficult times of my life. At that time, I noticed she had written several interesting books for Chicago Review Press. Two […]

Teaching What Counts

15 Dec 2015 / 0 Comments / in Uncategorized

In case anyone feels too proud of our exceptional children and innovative teaching methods, a letter by Anne Hooper to Henry Bullinger might be the good dose of humility and the kick in the pants we need. Anne wrote this letter from London in 1551, while her husband John Hooper (pictured here) was in prison. As godfather of […]

To Resist or to Register…

15 Dec 2015 / 1 Comment / in Uncategorized

“Register” – we read on a stone in the cell where Marie Durand and other Protestant women were kept for most of their lives.   Recently, Reformation Heritage Books received a message from a reader who was concerned this might be a mistake. “If you google the French translation for the English resist you will see that […]

Sounds Familiar? Letters from Heinrich and Anna Bullinger to their son.

10 Oct 2015 / 0 Comments / in Uncategorized

The 16th century was different from our age in many ways, but some things never change. “Your mother makes big eyes when you already speak of needing another pair of shoes for the winter,” wrote Heinrich Bullinger to his son on December 20, 1553. “It is hardly fifteen weeks since you left us, when you […]

I haven’t been posting for a while, and there are many news regarding this series and more. 1. The next title in the series is Marie Durand – yes, finally another woman. It should be out in June 2015. As you know, my series is mostly about people who have influenced the way we believe […]

How Critical is a Critical Perspective?

13 Dec 2014 / 0 Comments / in Uncategorized

OK, I admit it, the title is an attempt to sound clever. Ideally, yes, a critical perspective of history is important. How to maintain it in a short biography for relatively young children (ages 7-10) is another story. This reflection was prompted by a great review by Daniel Cooley (Jonathan Edwards Center at TEDS) of my book Jonathan Edwards. At […]

Second Mini-Contest

10 Oct 2014 / 0 Comments / in Uncategorized

Here is another short contest. It might be easier for those who already have these books. In each of the first seven books in the series (John Calvin, Augustine, John Owen, Athanasius, Jane Grey, Anselm, and John Knox) there is a (truly!) unintentional mention of Italy or of Italians. Once again, Jonathan Edwards breaks this habit […]
