Celebrate Our Christian Heroes (Instead of Halloween)


It's time to go Back to School! From now through August 28th, selected titles and classes have been marked down by 30%! For more Back-to-School savings, visit the Back to School sale page.

Is there an alternative to celebrating Halloween? Yes! Let's take seriously the example set by the early church of celebrating our history and heritage as Christians.

Learning church history can not only be painless, it can be fun! Try having a Heroes for Jesus Party with your family, church family, and friends. You just need some volunteers to dress up as your favorite church history heroes and stay in character for an hour or so....How about bringing in the Apostle Paul, St. Francis of Assisi, Amy Carmichael, St. Patrick, Martin Luther, or St. Augustine? Your children will not even realize they are learning about church history!

We have been having Heroes for Jesus parties for years with everyone who participates having a grand time! We have loved making memories and learning together about mighty men and women who have changed the world for the glory of God!

Celebrate our Christian Heroes covers: How, Why, and What to Celebrate, Alternatives to Celebrating Halloween, and How to have your own Heroes for Jesus Party. Here are the heroes covered in the book.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
