    The Children's Bible provides, in simple English, a translation of selections from both the Old and the New Testament. These selections have been made as a result of more than 25 years of observation and study. The text is that of the Bible itself, but in the language of a child, so that it may easily be read to younger children and read by those who are older. The immortal stories and songs of the Old and New Testaments are a child's richest inheritance from the past.

    The Trial and Death of Socrates presents the trial and subsequent execution of Socrates in 399 BCE. Socrates was tried on the basis of two ambiguous charges: corrupting the youth and impiety. “Euthyphro”, one of Plato's early dialogues, takes place during the weeks leading up to Socrates' trial. “Apology” is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defends himself against the charges of being a man "who corrupted the young, refused to worship the gods, and created new deities".

    Many of the novella's core themes, such as the struggle between individualism and collectivism, are echoed in Rand's later books, such as The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. However, the style of "Anthem" is unique among Rand's work, more narrative-centered and economical, lacking the intense didactic expressions of philosophical abstraction that occur in later works.
