Description

By Metropolitan Hierotheos Vlachos

A unique and handsome catechism of the Orthodox Christian faith, helpful to young children, older children, and adults. Most of the book consists of full-page illustrations with one simple sentence of text in large print, sequentially numbered. The illustrations are in soft pastel colors in a style reminiscent of Byzantine iconography and are often patterned after well-known icons, but are somewhat simplified for the child. (The artist is an iconographer in Greece). The art is unmistakably Orthodox and of high quality, but clearly done for children. The numbers correspond to paragraphs of text in latter part of the book which explore that theme in much greater depth. Thus it can be used a picture book for preschoolers and beginning readers, while parents and teachers of older children may either read the extended texts to the children or make use of these texts to prepare their own explanations. This catechism covers the biblical stories and themes contained in the Nicene Creed, as well as basics about the Church, the sacraments, and the Christian life.

Then the little children were brought to Him, in order that He should lay His hands on them and pray: but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, "Let alone the little children, and cease hindering them to come to Me; for of such is the kingdom of the heavens. And He laid His hands upon them, and He departed from that place. The Gospel According to St. Matthew 19:13 14
