Nicene Creed : Illustrated and Instructed for Kids (Hardcover) (Joey Fitzgerald)
about this item
Every week in worship services around the world hundreds of millions of Protestants, Catholics and Orthodox confess their faith by reciting the Nicene Creed. Now comes the first-ever book to teach children about this most widely accepted statement of the Christian faith. It will help parents, grandparents, and teachers engage 5 to 12 year olds in the marvelous light of God’s love for them. The lucid commentary will help children understandwhat we affirm by reciting the Creed, and why each of its affirmations is important to the Christian faith. The artwork will introduce children and adults to an ancient Christian style by evoking, but not imitating, the beautiful visual art of iconography. Added features include “Why Teach the Creed to Children,” and “Keywords For Kids” to help them grasp that even though some of the language may sound grown-up they can understand it and claim it for their own. The author wrote and illustrated this book for his own children and children everywhere.
