This book was written to be read daily for an entire year. It is set up as a passage marked with each month and day of the year. But of course you could read it at your leisure several passages at a time if you would prefer; and this would not affect the integrity of the book. Each daily reading has a summary of a historical person or event in America's history, including a timeline with dates and events that are a part of American history over the years that occurred on that particular day. Included in the book are wonderful historical illustrations and a reference for state flags, facts, and symbols.
This book would be a great asset to any history teacher or student. Being a homeschooler I plan to definitely use this book as a supplement to our American History studies. Or if you are just a history buff you would definitely enjoy this book.

What I like most about this book was the short application suitable for young and old; especially helpful for someone with multiple ages in their family. Each prayer was simple and engaging when I used it with my children. The illustrations were colorful and very child friendly.
I found the quality of the cd's to be a bit lacking. Although the song choices were great the sound was a little warbled and not as clear as I would have expected. Scripture quotations were taken from the Holy Bible New International version and the The New King James Version; so depending on your preference this could make a difference in your decision in purchasing.
Overall a great resources for families, homeschools, christians schools and churches.

"The Jesus you can't ignore" is the first book I have read by author John MacArthur. This book gives examples of how Jesus calls out the Pharisees and religious leaders over their practices and traditions. MacArthur explains how Jesus chastens the religious leaders over adding laws and how their actions were self-serving.
I liked the fact that the author went through the chronological life of Christ when giving examples of how Christ responded and interacted with the Pharisees and religious leaders. I also liked that the author stressed that Christ didn't confront them just to make people angry, but to stop people from turning away from God.
Being the first book I have read by this author, I did find this book a little wordy and would not consider this light reading. However, I did enjoy the content and I did learn from the principles. I found that the applications of this book could be missed without reading the prologue and epilogue.

Kids of all ages will love the flashbacks of the bugs in their early years. Parents will love the spiritual applications that can remind their child that God didn't make anybody by accident, and that he isn't finished with us yet. The cartoon graphics and story line are engaging and will even produce a few laughs now and then from viewers. In addition to this the bonus materials included trivia questions, music singalong, and short film on how the Hermie and friends dvd series are created(which I found fascinating and laborious)
Once again a great Hermie and friends film and an important lesson in who is in charge of our lives. My family enjoyed watching this together and loved seeing some scenes from prior DVD series. Overall, a must have for all family video libraries
