  • Princess And The Goblin

    $13.95

    When Princess Irene is sent away to live in a great old castle-house in the mountains, her life is dull until she happens upon a hidden stairway. But whatever-or whoever-she finds upstairs will lead her out of doors and into the mountains where only the miners are brave enough to go…

    “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

    $11.95

    “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

    $6.99

    “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

    $6.99

    “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

  • Worldview Guide To The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer

    $6.99

    “Ah, childhood. Boys. Long summer days, barefoot, fishing, swimming, laughter, pocket knives, dirty hands, dirty faces, sweaty brows, trouble, joy. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is an unmistakable celebration of youth and in particular boyhood. At the same time, it’s an extended commentary on adulthood, grownups, society, and culture. And that commentary largely consists of a long, exaggerated eye-roll. Welcome to one of the great American stories. Welcome to the wit and the wonder of one of America’s greatest writers”–

  • Readers Companion To Sherlock Holmes

    $22.00

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in his memoirs, “It is a great mistake to start putting out cargo when you have hardly stowed any on board,” explaining why he didn’t become an author until relatively late in life. Father J. Michael Venditti has Sherlock Holmes cargo in abundance and his A Reader’s Companion to Sherlock Holmes offers fans a friendly and intriguing perspective into the classic stories. Venditti hopes to encourage new readers to crack open the tales of the Sleuth of Baker Street, while offering fresh insight for those already familiar with the cases.

    This is not a book of literary criticism of the Holmes tales – instead Venditti dispels myths and misconceptions about the works, as well as offers insight into the man who created them. Part biography and part history, Venditti’s book frames the Holmes canon as only an avid fan can do. This Companion will send the reader straight to the pages of the Holmes tales with historical context to bring them to vivid life.
