“I have never concealed the fact that I regarded George MacDonald as my master: indeed I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him.” ~ C.S. Lewis
This is one of the best fairy tales ever told, written by George MacDonald, a master storyteller. This book is the kind of book that will keep both children’s and adults’ attention as they wait to find out about what happens to Princess Irene and Curdie as they go underground near the kingdoms of the Goblins.
This Canonball reprinting includes an Introduction by Timothy Larsen: “Although The Princess and the Goblin is not an allegory, it is nevertheless a deeply Christian piece of writing…. Throughout his entire life George MacDonald was always trying to lead people to God, and it is clear that he hoped that this chief lesson of The Princess and the Goblin would be applied to the person most worthy of our trust and obedience, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Trust and Obey Him.”
Picture Of Dorian Gray Worldview Edition$11.95Add to cart
“Before Lady Gaga, Madonna, Prince, David Bowie, Salvador Dali, or Liberace, there was Oscar Wilde, the archetype of the artist poseur….Oscar Wilde’s career established a cult of artistic spectacle and personal scandal inspiring provocateurs in every generation since.” -From Marcus Schwager’s Introduction
Lord Henry Wotton devotes himself to convincing Dorian Gray that physical beauty is the only thing in life worth pursuing. The younger man falls entirely under Wotton’s alluring influence, and Dorian eventually gets the aesthete’s sole desire: his appearance never changes, no matter what he does to his own body. Instead it is a portrait of himself that is increasingly ravaged by time and his mistreatment of himself and others. Dorian’s pursuit of pleasure-beautiful and sensually perfect on the outside-is shadowed more and more closely by his own hideous portrait. Oscar Wilde’s dark tale feels so real because it paints a picture of human nature not only in Dorian’s gullible innocence but also in Wotton’s corrupting influence.

Worldview Guide For Much ADO About Nothing$6.99Add to cart
“If a theatrical performance is primarily seen and heard, the main action in Much Ado About Nothing is principally overheard. The act of noting defines the play. While this dependence on noting seems rather harmless if the task is tricking Beatrice and Benedick to fall in love, Claudio’s mistaken noting threatens to upend the comedy and undo all of the matches. Can anything good come out of this chaos over ‘nothing’?”–

Worldview Guide For War And Peace$6.99Add to cart
“There is a shelf load of great books whose mere size places them in a special category. These are the heavy hitters; slap some mortar between them and you have a fortress. … Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace is perhaps the most formidable of these books. But the most impressive thing about Tolstoy’s magnum opus is that over three hundred and sixty-three chapters and well over half a million words he not only crafts a compelling story, but presents a view of life deeper and more vivid than many authors ever dream of.” ~ from Samuel Dickison’s guide
