Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 6-8-These clear, color-photo-filled books provide informative, balanced introductions to their respective religions and successfully distill the essential elements of Christianity and Judaism into 44 pages each. Chapters on the highlights of belief and history precede descriptions of family and public celebrations and worship, scriptures, pilgrimage sites, and subgroups (Christian denominations are defined by their worship style rather than differences of belief; Reconstructionist Jews are mentioned only once, and not discussed or described). Great men-Abraham, Moses, St. Paul-are covered briefly, as is the layout of buildings for worship. Roman Catholic reverence for saints is correctly described; however, the prohibition against image making is not mentioned in Judaism. The brevity of these books dictates simplification, and there are some omissions, e.g., arguably the word "Shoah" should have been used, as many other Hebrew terms are, and kippah should replace yarmulka. However, much is included in these lucid and readable texts.-Patricia Lothrop-Green, St. George's School, Newport, RI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
