By Christine Perdotti

The book begins with the most important stories and characters of the Bible, beginning with the Old Testament: Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David. Next comes the New Testament with Mary and Joseph, Jesus, John the Baptist, the twelve apostles, and the sisters Mary and Martha. The history of the Church is then traced through the first Christians, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and into modern times. The exciting story unfolds with thumbnail sketches of great men and women of faith: some well-known and beloved saints, such as Francis and Clare of Assisi, along with the recently canonized Kateri Tekakwitha and Father Damien of Molokai. The basic beliefs of the Catholic Church as well as her major sacraments and feast days are all briefly described. This rich treasury of information is sure to fascinate young children while teaching them the most important elements of their Christian heritage. 96 pages. Padded hardcover.
