$50 Gift Certificate to Exodus Books

Exodus BooksExodus Books operates a huge homeschool website and a 4000-square-foot bookstore located in Milwaukie, Oregon. We specialize in books for “education, edification and enjoyment,” and offer approximately 28,000 products, a fairly carefully selected inventory of new and used home school materials, quality literature, music, games, and Christian books and media of a Reformed persuasion.

One of the main services we offer is buying and selling used books. Our entire used inventory is on the website for your browsing pleasure.

Our website is an attempt to blend our knowledge of products with a very usable interface: easy to search, easy to browse; fun to read and interesting to look at. We do our best to provide as much information about each product as possible, including many custom-written reviews, product descriptions and samples.

Because we want to promote education itself (not just our store), we are working to make this new site a portal, with plenty of external links, biosketches of authors, and topic headings intended to help you educate your children and yourself. Our goal is ambitious: we hope to make this one of the most helpful and informative home school sites on the web.

  30. Besides the Bible, A Woman After God’s Own Heart

  31. I have a few books on my list to eventually read this year that I believe will be life changing for me – can’t remember the titles off the top of my head. I did read Lamplighter’s Jessica’s Prayer with my five-year-old daughter and we had some life-changing spiritual conversations. I hope that counts.

  32. The Bible.

  33. What Happens When We Pray For Our Families by Evelyn Christenson. This one got me on my knees for my family.

  34. I can’t the book was called, “Out of Control & Loving It!” by Lisa Bevere

  35. Wow! What a difficult question–so many to choose from. I don’t want to sound silly, but sometimes simple truths are best. I learn a lot as I explain truths to my children. We’ve really enjoyed the Miller books. Right now we’re enjoying Wisdom and the Millers.

  36. Besides the Bible – Mere Christianity by CS Lewis

  38. Aside from the Bible, I’d have to say that Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands by Dr. Laura changed my life and marriage.

  43. The Bible is, of course, life-changing! Enders Game helped me learn to love science fiction. The Happiest Baby on the Block helped me want to know more about raising children. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie helped me learn how to do theme units. So many memorable books!

  58. Love our Bible but my son reads a book a day and just finished the Narnia series and that really made him look at life differently.

  59. My Bible! No, other book comes close!

  60. As several have said, the Bible, but it is so much more than ‘a book’, I agree! I’ve read many books over the years that have made an impact, chosing just one is a sure challenge, but I’d have to say amongst the top contenders is John Bunyun’s Holy War. It was one of those books that gets inside your head and works on your heart and teaches and convicts you as you read.

  61. So many! The Bible, of course. Radical by David Platt was a challenge. And Homeschool Heroes by Chris Klicka makes me appreciate those who went before.

  62. other than the Bible? probably the No Greater Joy series.

  63. Besides the Bible, Hinds Feet on High Places

  64. Shepherding a Child’s Heart

  65. The Bible just keeps getting better and better!

  75. My Bible !!!

  76. The Bible and when I was younger Hinds Feet on High Places

  78. God bless your business. Thank you for providing resources to homeschool families!

  79. Give Them Grace!

  80. Don’t know if I could say just one. Explicit Gospel, by Matt Chandler, is up there. Splendour of God, a biography of Adoniram Judson by Honore Morrow would also be a contender. His dedication to his work was amazing. I still think Reforming Marriage by Doug Wilson was a life-shaping book for me too.

  81. The Bible!

  82. Choosing Forgiveness by Nancy Leigh Demoss

  83. This would be such a blessing! Would be great to give some good books as Christmas gifts!

  84. Most life changing book? – (other than the The Bible…) The Gospel Primer for Christians

  100. the Bible

  101. The Bible of course. 🙂

  102. The Chronicles of Narnia

  103. Would be a toss up between One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp and Created to Be a Helpmeet by Debi Pearl.

  104. Wow, God is so good. I was thinking of the myriad of books I have read, besides the Word of God ( which continues to impact my life ) and trying to decide which one has really been a life changer for me. As I was scrolling down the list to see some of the other books people were mentioning I came to a book that a friend told me a few days ago, that I must read…..so, I haven’t read it yet, but I will be, and something is telling me that it is going to be a life changing book because this was a clear confirmation from God to get this book and read it. Created to be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl.

  105. The Bible. Because I never read it until I was in my 20s.

  106. Why Won’t They Listen, by Ken Ham…actually anything by Ken Ham has been incredible.

  108. Aside from the Bible, “homeschooling with a meek and quiet spirit,” by Teri maxwell. It came at the right time.

  109. So many but Shepherding a Child’s Heart has really helped with parenting.

  110. A Mother After God’s Own Heart and Created to Be His Helpmeet.

  111. Besides the Bible…”The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. I have used it not only in my marriage, but every relationship I have. It has also helped me with the captivating thoughts.

  112. The Bible and Sacred Marriage

  113. The Bible!

  114. I was changed by reading The Pursuit of Holiness.

  115. Aside from the Bible, “In His Steps”, by Charles Sheldon.

  116. Jessica Hatzopoulos

    Aside from the bible, George Mueller’s biography really helped me understand prayer better and my obedience to praying for others.

  117. The Bible!

  118. The Blessed Life

  119. Rediscovering the Lost Tools of Learning by Douglas Wilson

  120. Besides the Bible, Created to be His Helpmeet by Debbi Pearl was life-changing. Also, Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free by Nancy DeMoss was eye-opening.

  121. not to be cliche, but besides the bible, books like the giver, the girl who owned a city, or even the hunger games help me to really see the severity of our human need for Christ. human nature is not to be moral! we are slaves to sin and under the law, even if God is never spoken of again.
    on that note, i’ve also enjoyed other fiction writings such as number the stars, and the elsie dinsmore series.
    compelled by love, by heidi baker is an amazing glory to Christ’s work in us.

  122. The Bible and biographies of missionaries.

  123. Created to Be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl

  124. Besides the Bible- my most recent book that has been a huge blessing is Give Them Grace.

  125. Besides the Bible, of course, was Quiver Full by Rick and Jan Hess. It solidified our belief in trusting God with our family size through scripture and has been pretty life changing considering we’ll have 3 chidren ages 3 and under in July. 🙂 But Created to be his Helpmeet runs a close second.

  126. Choosing Forgiveness – Nancy L Demoss

  127. Ranking after God’s word, the Believing God (bible study book) by Beth Moore. It helped me learn to not only believe in God, but press into Believing God. The difference? We LIVE what we truly believe.

  128. Outside of the Word – I think Sheparding or Romancing a child’s heart. Changed how I parented.

  129. “Do Hard Things” by Alex & Brett Harris and “A Chance to Die” by Elisabeth Elliot. What a great giveaway! We would love this!

  130. Most life changing book….R.C Sproul’s Chosen.

  131. Operation Worldview (an incredible Bible study)
