Download a sample chapter of Church History ABCs.
A church father was arrested and martyred for teaching the truth about Christ's incarnation. Captured by pirates and shipped off to Ireland, a priest baptized thousands of pagans, from beggars to princes. Dramatically converted on the stormy seas, a slave-trader-turned-abolitionist penned the best-loved hymn of the Christian faith, "Amazing Grace". Now who ever said church history was boring?
The Church History ABC's is a fun way for kids to learn about great figures in Christian history. Twenty-six heroes or heroines march through the alphabet, boldly telling their stories in language children can understand. This wide range of characters - men and women from across the centuries and from all over the globe - reflects the breadth of church history and reminds children that these great figures of the past were living, breathing people who lived and died for the glory of God.
"And don't forget...the story of church history is your story!"
"C is for catfish, castle, and John Calvin, champion Reformer"
So fun to learn your alphabet with the great heroes of Church History.
We just bought this book a week ago, and already our family loves it. My oldest is almost 5, our middle is almost 3, and our youngest is over a year. My two oldest enjoy the little stories that accompany each character, and I love that they deftly use humor and a unique illustration style to grab and keep each child's attention. Learning about important church figures while making it fun and accessible to young children has never been better!
