Kids need Church History Too!
5 stars By Shelly, Dec 30 2010
Kids need real heroes - and (other than the Bible itself) the best ones are found in Church History. Nichols and Bustard have produced a fine resource in this book for kids. Real Christian heroes - ancient and modern - are presented in an ABC format in age appropriate language. As a primary-age Church History teacher, I'll definitely be using this with my students as an introduction to Church History. I'm hoping they'll come out with more in this series. Check out their website too for some great activities. A wonderful find.
