Despite not being a bible in the strictest sense, The Illustrated Bible Story by Story from DK press is an incredible secondary source for biblical information. This book summarizes and augments each story from the bible with large classical artwork, maps, and photographs of artifacts, all in full vivid color. In addition to these visual aids to the Old and New Testaments, DK brings together biblical scholars and historians to offer marginalia regarding the ancient interpretation of the bible, past and present significance of passages, and general contextualization of the works in both secular and Christian society.

Jewish sports heroes? You betcha! From boxers like Barney Ross, who dominated the professional ranks in the 1920s and ‘30s, to playground basketball stars who went on to be pros, like Red Holzman and Doph Schayes, to Sid Luckman who originated the position of the modern dropback quarterback, Jews have had an enormous impact on American sports. In Jewish Jocks: An Unorthodox Hall of Fame (Twelve, $26.99), Franklin Foer and Marc Tracy have compiled fifty biographical portraits that entertain, enlighten, and educate. The range of subjects is diverse, and so are the contributors. They include Simon Schama, David Brooks, Jane Leavy, Sholom Auslander, and David Remn

Hard times abound. In Living Beautifully (Shambhala, $22.95), Pema Chodron is back with advice on handling the difficulties we must confront throughout our lives. Building from the most basic principle of Western Buddhist practices, to be present, Chodron offers three new commitments to aid growth during struggle: commit to cause no harm, commit to take care of each other, and commit to accept the world and face it just as it really is. You do not have to be interested in Buddhism to benefit from this book, nor do you have to be suffering. The ideas promoted here offer strength and wisdom for all of us.
