January 2011 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

If you have ever visited the "About Our Books" section of our website, you may have read about our "No Kissing!" rule. (If you haven't read it, you can find it here.) When people read that, they seem to have one of two responses: "That's great!" or "That's weird!"

Whichever response you have, I want to take a minute and share with you some of our thoughts on romance in the books that we choose to republish.

First off, let me say that we are not anti-romance and we are certainly not anti-kissing after marriage! That said, male/female interaction is an important area that we evaluate when choosing which books to republish. It has been my observation that there are two basic ways in which authors approach romance: either the man is seeking to defend and protect the honor of the woman as he wins her heart, or he is seeking to take advantage of her. As Christians, we believe that the former scenario fits the Biblical model and that the latter definitely does not! While this may seem obvious, I have read books where even a young lady's desire to be taken advantage of was presented in a positive light.

One famous illustration of this is found in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen where Lydia happily runs away with Mr. Wickham. In this story though, Wickham's actions are clearly contrasted with the way in which Mr. Darcy, at great cost to himself, expends his time and energy to preserve the honor of Elizabeth and her family.

For better or worse, the worldview of children and young adults regarding romantic relationships will be shaped by the stories that they read. I am very excited to be republishing our newest title, A Sea-Queen's Sailing, because in addition to being an exciting historical story, it is also presents a wonderful romance of the best possible type.

God bless,
Daniel Mills, Publisher

Our Newest Release!

A Sea-Queen's Sailing A Sea-Queen's Sailing

Early one summer morning in 935 A.D., Malcolm the Jarl’s home in northern Scotland is attacked by Viking raiders led by Heidrek the Seafarer. Struck down during the brief battle that follows, Malcolm is taken captive and imprisoned on what was once his own ship. Refusing to join the murderous Vikings, he manages to escape with two of the other prisoners, only to end up lost at sea. Through a strange series of events, the three young men come upon the young queen, Gerda, who is alone and desperately in need of help. Together, the three friends, Scottish jarl, Irish prince and English thane, pledge themselves to protect Gerda and seek to restore her kingdom which has been usurped by her evil uncle Arnkel. But first they must escape from Heidrek who is pursuing them across the northern seas. Adventure and danger abound in this exciting tale of brave manly men fighting to uphold the honor of a woman.

From their website: "There is only one perfect book — the Bible. Nevertheless, we believe the books offered by The Vision Forum represent some of the most helpful tools on the market today which address critical issues concerning family renewal, child discipleship, and Biblical patriarchy; godly education; Christ-centered apologetics; righteous government; and the providential hand of God in history. These are real books for families of vision. In short, this is the library we recommend to any family hoping to build a Christian worldview for its children."
