These are the top books I recommend for each subject. I mention a lot of books on this site, but these are the cream of the crop. This list is targeted for home school parents and Christian school teachers, so I include recommended grade levels in parentheses (based on what I consider the ideal age to study the subject). However, these books are useful for all ages! They can be used in churches for study groups or in individual study for adults.
