~ This coloring book introduces children to important characters from church history, focusing on at least one person per century. This basic timeline illustrates how God has woven deeply flawed characters into a single living story. And this story is not over. As children color these pages and see God's unfolding plan in church history, pray they will learn to praise God for the wonderful works that He has done.
This is just the sort of activity that families are looking for fun for the kids, educational, and most of all, stimulating for gospel conversations. Buy a new pack of crayons and sit down with your kids to reflect on God's faithfulness to His church throughout the centuries. --Gloria Furman, author of Missional Motherhood
An excellent, fun introduction to church history for kids. Not only will children and grandchildren love it but you might want to buy one for yourself and join them in coloring the history of the church. --Bill VanDoodewaard, professor of church history, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
A stimulating and interactive way to help children connect the dots between the church of the apostles and of today while introducing dozens of important men and women of church history. Coloring the illustrations, with their various situations and costumes, will help the young readers to understand the passing of time and reflect on the constant nature of God's faithfulness to His church. This is a wonderful 'first book' of church history that parents can supplement with other material. --Simonetta Carr, author of the Christian Biographies for Young Readers series
