Hardcover
64 Pages

Irenaeus is remembered for his work in helping the church to preserve the faith handed on by the apostles and to defend it when it was attacked. In this simply written and beautifully illustrated book, Simonetta Carr shows young readers the difficulties the early church faced and how Irenaeus taught Christians to discern truth from error by listening to the Bible. To Christians, the lessons Irenaeus taught are as important today as they were in his time.

The Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on Irenaeus by Simonetta Carr (Reformation Heritage Books, 2017).

“Carr’s book hits a homerun by enabling young readers to consume a well-rounded overview of Irenaeus without bogging them down to the point where these young minds will become bored and disinterested with the material. Carr once again writes with her audience well in mind and does so rather amazingly.

I highly recommend this book, especially for families who homeschool or for homeschool associations who may offer group classes for their members. This book would make an excellent addition to a homeschool bible and/or world history curriculum.

So Simonetta Carr…with this latest release you have me on the edge of my seat anxiously waiting for what you have next for us in this awesome series.”

“While Irenaeus of Lyon’s life may not be as memorable or his personality as over the top as someone like Luther about whom biography’s abound it is good to see some lesser known biographies come out like this of Irenaeus. This book would be a good middle grade read but also I would encourage adults to read it as well. This series of biographies published by Reformation Heritage Books and written by Simonetta Carr would be excellent introductions to many godly women and men through history especially for adults who have a limited amount of free reading time and want to understand their own families history better since all believers have been adopted and are brothers and sisters in Christ. If you would like to start learning more about some in the early church this would be a good place to start.”

“Teaching Church history can be a complicated endeavor especially with children, yet in Simonetta Carr’s new book, Irenaeus, she continues her pursuit to give children a glimpse of followers of Christ who influenced their modern worldview… Having read her other works in this phenomenal series, Irenaeus, might be the best of an already genre defining biographical series.”

“Young and old alike will profit from and enjoy reading this book, whether you know absolutely nothing about Irenaeus and this is your first introduction, or whether this is the fifth book you’ve read on the man and it simply serves as a reminder in a beautifully illustrated way for you to teach your children or others about him.”
Reviewer: Zack Ford

“I think it’s perfectly fine for kids to read and hear works of fiction, but I think it’s also good to let them learn about real Christians who lived in the past. Real people who lived and died fighting the good fight of faith. What better way to put one’s imagination to work than contemplating real events, real Christian people and the teachings of God’s Word? This book is one of a series of books that are a good way to have young people (and older people) practice doing that.”

Reformation Women: Sixteenth-Century Figures Who Shaped Christianity's Rebirth Book Cover Reformation Women: Sixteenth-Century Figures Who Shaped Christianity's Rebirth
Rebecca VanDoodewaard

Women are an essential element in church history. Just as Deborah, Esther, and the New Testament Marys helped shape Bible history, so the women of the Reformed church have helped to make its history great. In Reformation Women, Rebecca Vandoodewaard introduces readers to twelve sixteenth-century women who are not as well known today as contemporaries like Katie Luther and Lady Jane Grey. Providing an example to Christians today of strong service to Christ and His church, these influential, godly women were devoted to Reformation truth, in many cases provided support for their husbands, practiced hospitality, and stewarded their intellectual abilities. Their strength and bravery will inspire you, and your understanding of church history will become richer as you learn how God used them to further the Reformation through their work and influence.

The Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on Reformation Women: Sixteenth-Century Figures Who Shaped Christianity’s Rebirth by Rebecca VanDoodewaard (Reformation Heritage Books, 2017).

“I would wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone with an interest in the history of the Protestant Reformation –especially those who desire to learn more about the very important role that women played in its success. This book is perfect for a part of a homeschooling history curriculum and would be a timely addition given the important anniversary which is just around the corner.”

“After taking a “Women in Church History” course in college, I have loved learning about the powerful women who have helped Christianity to spread throughout the ages. Sometimes it was them going into a scary country on their own. Other times it was a wife supporting her leader of a husband. Reformation Women is a welcomed addition to my collection of books on Women in Church history. What a powerful reminder of what God can do with a heart surrendered to Him.”

“I found Reformation Women to be a personally encouraging, and intellectually satisfying book. More than that, I think it is a necessary book. The ongoing and diverse conversations regarding what makes a “biblical woman” need the historic grounding that this sort of book provides. I hope Rebecca, or another author, also offers us similar biographies of women from other times and places in church history.”

“I highly recommend, Reformation women, to any Pastor looking for historical illustrations as well as to every father to tell read these accounts to their daughters to aid in their spiritual growth, as well as to all women to give them a role model to inspire to . This is a book you do not want to miss out on.”

“While there are many books being published on the Protestant Reformation this one stands out in bringing to attention women whose accomplishments and service though great are largely forgotten in church history.

“I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone. This book is not just for women. This book is not just for lovers of history. This book is not just for Reformation gurus. Though the book will certainly appeal to those groups, the truths learned and modeled in this book extend much further — into each and every one of our lives as Christ followers. I found myself encouraged, humbled, convicted, and instructed through the godly lives and examples of these unknown women of the Reformation. I believe that the same will be true for you.”

“VanDoodewaard’s study helps to fill the gap which exists at a popular level regarding the role of women in the Reformation. Her study is helpful and engaging and I found each chapter to be better than the last (the chapters on the Frenchwomen Jeanne d’ Albret & Luise de Coligny were particularly riveting). Hopefully this book will help to provide the church today (and perhaps especially the daughters of the church) with models of feminine faithfulness.”
Reviewer: Ben Franks

“Throughout this book, I found myself longing for more details and jotting down questions for further study. Mrs. VanDoodewaard successfully whetted my appetite for further study, indeed. I would love to know more about how these women balanced their many responsibilities, educated their children, managed their homes, etc., and because her sources are well-documented in footnotes, I know just where to turn for additional information!”

“Just as Foxe’s “Book of Martyrs” is important in the lives of believers, so are the stories of these women who stood up to the tyranny of the Roman Catholic Church and gave their lives to serve God. VanDoodewaard’s collection of stories will inspire and challenge you in your Christian walk.”

“I appreciated this book because it was well-written, easy to follow, and very interesting. The introduction and conclusion are very helpful in that they give reasons why it’s important to learn about women of the Reformation and lists several things we can learn from them. I’ll be recommending this book when people ask if I have any ideas for a women’s book club at church. But this book isn’t just for women! It’s for anyone who wants to learn about Reformation history and be edified and encouraged in the faith at the same time.”

I highly recommend this book.”
Reviewer: Andrew Wencl
Rating: 5 Stars

“What I find especially helpful about a book such as this is the reminder that Christianity has never been the domain of men alone. Faithful women, married and serving alongside their husbands or single and serving wherever they can, have been part and parcel of the faith from the very beginning. We do a great disservice to the cause of Christ by forgetting such facts. This volume should be an inspiration and encouragement to men AND women of the faith.”

“…there is much to gain from reading Reformation Women, both for historical enrichment and spiritual encouragement.”
Reviewer: John Wiley

“I appreciate how the author never elevates nor demeans women who worked alongside their husbands and children on the home front. Though often in obscurity, yet their works, as a light set on a hill, could not be hidden, and we are blessed and encouraged to follow in their footsteps with honor and dignity even if we never leave the sphere of our homes. Yet, those who are active in the workforce or in positions of leadership will also gain many insights into how to portray the love of Christ where they serve with those qualities unique to believing women. I would especially encourage high school aged women to read this book as they are seeking to discern God’s plan for their lives, and it would make an excellent graduation gift.”

Pray About Everything: Cultivating God-Dependency Book Cover Pray About Everything: Cultivating God-Dependency
Paul Tautges
Shepherd Press

Believers need to learn to pray about everything, but so many unanswered questions hinder our progress.

  • What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name?
  • How do I pray for my non-Christian friends?
  • When does the Holy Spirit pray for me?

In this book, a seasoned pastor and counselor answers these questions—and many more—by effectively instructing us with biblical principles, examples, and commands. By doing so, he encourages us to develop a life of prayer. Pastors, elders, and small group leaders will also find this book an indispensable help to cultivating an atmosphere of God-dependency in their local church.

Pray About Everything delivers an urgent call for believers to commit themselves to regular and systematic heartfelt prayer as an essential spiritual discipline for the Christian life.

Who should read this book?

  • Christians at varying stages of maturity
  • Small-group or prayer-group leaders
  • Preachers, ministers, Bible teachers
  • Worship leaders
  • Church prayer leaders

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers are sharing their thoughts about Paul Tautges’ new book Pray About Everything.

“This book is far from a full-orbed treatment on prayer. But it is not intended to be so. Rather, the author intended to help the reader understand his/her dependency upon God and how that is manifested in prayer, not only in the individual’s life but also in the life of the larger church body.

A Message of Hope and Grace

Sometimes in our big-picture discussions about homosexuality and same-sex marriage, we lose sight of the person in the middle of the struggle. Whether that struggler is you or someone you care about, there are two fundamental questions that need to be answered: How can someone with same-sex attraction be faithful to Jesus? And how can everyone else support and encourage them in this pursuit?

With clarity and grace, author and pastor Ron Citlau will help you think through every option the Bible offers--and what it does not. Having personally dealt with same-sex attraction, walked with others still struggling, and pastored those with gay loved ones, he encourages readers to think deeply and biblically about heterosexual marriage, singleness, celibacy, and more.

Discover the remarkable gifts God provides to the same-sex-attracted Christian who desires to faithfully follow Jesus. And learn how others can come alongside them with love, encouragement, and grace.

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted by Ron Citlau.

Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted is just that – a word of hope. With so much focus in the Church today upon the nature of the sin, Ron’s book is a powerful correction and reminder that the Gospel is about transformation, not condemnation. Ron has written a book that will be helpful going forward both for the same-sex struggler and the church called to welcome them in truth and love. I highly recommend it.”
Reviewer: Scott Nichols
Rating: 5 Stars

“Ron not only includes his own testimony but the testimony of several others who live out their Christian faith in spite of their same-sex attraction. He demonstrates that there is hope. He clearly articulates the gospel and the necessity of involvement in the local church. There is much worthwhile in this book, for those struggling with homosexuality and their friends, family and church leaders.”

As the team did with the book, Making the Case For Christianity (CPH), Drs. Bombaro and Francisco bring together a variety of contemporary Lutheran apologists to respond to a wide array of challenges to the heart of the Christian faith.

Each chapter addresses a specific argument from a popular, non-Christian author and offers a clear and concise rebuttal and argument for the resurrection.

The editors have found able representatives from the disciplines of biblical studies, history, philosophy, and the legal profession to write each chapter.

The book is accessible, written for a broad audience, and is ultimately designed to equip its readers for the apologetics task.

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on The Resurrection Fact: Responding to Modern Critics by John J. Bombaro and Adam S. Francisco.

The Resurrection Fact: Responding to Modern Critics is a wonderful addition to the many excellent resources on the Resurrection of Jesus. I appreciate the degree of scholarship demonstrated throughout, and I think the format will be very helpful in that each chapter focuses on the various claims of leading Resurrection deniers.
