Last week, Lexham released its first children’s book: The Apostles’ Creed: For All God’s Children. The feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive. Here are just a few of the reviews that have come in so far.
Michael Bird gave the book a glowing recommendation on Twitter:
On her site Finding God Among Us, Shirley Alarie praises the book’s accessibility for all age levels:
I love the idea of the FatCat – making the Church’s core messages of the Bible (the catechism) approachable for young learners. The Apostles’ Creed meets children’s level of understanding at any given time, making it a tool that can be used over and over again.
Brent Niedergall praised overall quality of the artwork and the content:
Myers and Kennedy put an amazing level of care into this book. There are clever details like FatCat measuring the gate with a measuring tape in eternity and the Hebrew word for “Amen” framing the scene on the page for the creed’s concluding “Amen.” And the book is even typeset in a custom FatCat font designed by the illustrator.
Spencer Robinson appreciated the focus on teaching children such significant truths:
This is a fantastic book on a fantastic subject. The Apostles’ Creed has always been an important part of learning in church, and this book will certainly help to begin training up the little ones (and their parents too!).
Amber O’Neal Johnston also valued the deep-yet-approachable content in the book:
There were also many adults who just as excited to learn about the creed as their kids were:
