History comes alive in each volume of Chronicles of the Church. The stories of Paul, Polycarp, Justin, Origen, Cyprian, Constantine, Athanasius, Ambrose, Augustine, John Chrysostom, Jerome, Patrick and Benedict will give your children a better grasp of history and a profound appreciation for great Christian witnesses of the past.
As you read through history, from the apostle Paul to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, you can discover how the heroes of the early church influence Christianity today. Through their lives you will see the developing church struggling and growing in a hostile and difficult world. Watch in amazement as a varied selection of people from different countries, cultures and times merge together to form the Christian church.

Written in a modern and relaxed style this is a book that will introduce you to history without the tears and with all the wonder.
Extra features throughout this book look deeper into issues such as persecution; worship; creeds and councils and the formation of the Bible as well as a timeline.
They are written with 9-14 year olds in mind but the modern, relaxed and enthusiastic style is infectious!
