Product Description

A complex and fascinating character, Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria, is best remembered as the Father of Orthodoxy, upholding the doctrine of the Trinity against the Arian heresy.
 
In the newest addition to the Christian Biographies for Young Readers series, author Simonetta Carr introduces children to the life and times of this important church father who tirelessly defended the Nicene Creed, which many of us today recite as a confession of our faith. Born during the Great Persecution, forced five times to leave his church and city, and constantly threatened by those who tried to ruin his reputation, Athanasius provides an example of godly faithfulness.
 
Beautiful illustrations and a winsome, simply written narrative will bring the Nicene Creed to life for children of all ages, prompting relevant discussions on the divinity of Christ and the importance of creeds and confessions.
 
The early Christian bishop Athanasius is not an easy subject in some ways. But Simonetta tells his story with gusto, the right amount of admiration, and faithfulness to the Alexandrian bishop's life. - Michael A. G. Haykin, professor of church history, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

As with all of Simonetta's books, this volume is beautifully produced, lavishly illustrated, and delightfully well-written. - Carl Trueman, professor of Historical Theolofy and Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary
