Christian Biographies for Young Readers: Athanasius


Simonetta Carr

Introduce your children to one of the great leaders of the early Christian church, Athanasius. Learn about his life and how he tirelessly defended the Nicene Creed, which many recite today as a confession of faith. Filled with paintings, illustrations, photographs, and a timeline, you will discover Athanasius' godly faithfulness through the trials he endured as he held true to his beliefs.

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.

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 series of Christian Biographies for Young Readers was born in response to a need for simple but accurate and informative books on men and women of church history, emphasizing Godís preservation of His church and doctrines rather than moral samples to follow. Masterful illustrations capture the imagination of readers, and photos help them to realize that these stories are really true. These are hardcover books of excellent quality and will appeal to readers from middle and upper primary right through to adult.
