~~ New Materials ~~

1000 Years of Catholic Scientists has been expanded and revised!

A new Psychology book, suitable for high school, has been printed and is available! Psychology Handbook for a Windy World. It's about 258 pages of text plus a detailed table of contents and a beautiful index. 

A Curriculum for the Culture of Life  This print edition remains available, as also the laminated chart.

A Doorway of Amethyst  in full color, provides an introduction to geology -- to the basic types of stone, their origins and changes, and the basic types of erosion, as well as the history of earth in terms of its geologic eras, and more.

One unique feature is a discussion of the Williston Basin, where drilling has turned up representative sediments from each of the major geologic eras, in their standard order. It makes a nice review and explains why geologists find it difficult to imagine how Noah's Flood could have produced the sedimentary rock formations of the world. Whatever you believe about Creation or the Flood, you need to understand this.

Like the Irish under the Penal laws, who educated their children in caves and behind hedges to escape the imposition of anti-Catholic priorities in education, many families feel the need to take their children's education into their own hands.
