The Israelites were God's chosen people. They were special. They were His inheritance. So when God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, the capital city of Israel's enemy, Assyria - well, you know the rest of the story! Or do you? God used a reluctant prophet, a large fish, and a plant, all to drive some important lessons home. Read the book of Jonah and learn more about the real end of the story with our accompanying lapbook and study guide.
During the chaotic period of the Judges who governed Israel, when "there was no king, and everyone did as he saw fit," there emerged a beautiful love story between two unlikely people. Ruth was a pagan foreigner who needed redemption; her mother-in-law, Naomi, was a bitter shell of a woman who needed healing; and Boaz was the son of a prostitute who had migrated to Israel years ago. Who would suspect that this union would beget the great King David of Israel, and generations later, the Messiah? See the love story of Ruth in a whole new light with our accompanying lapbook and study guide.
