Illustrated Biography Book


A complex and fascinating character, Athanasius, who was the bishop of Alexandria (Egypt), is best remembered as the Father of Orthodoxy, upholding the doctrine of the Trinity against the Arian heresy. In this illustrated storybook, which is part of the Christian Biographies for Young Readers series, author Simonetta Carr introduces children to the life and times of this important church father who tirelessly defended the Nicene Creed – a statement of belief that’s still being recited by believers today as the confession of their Christian faith.

Born during the Great Persecution, forced five times to leave his community, and constantly threatened by those who tried to ruin his reputation, Athanasius provides us a fine example of Godly faithfulness. The beautiful illustrations – along with the book’s winsome, simply written narrative – will help children of all ages acquire a greater understanding of the Nicene Creed, prompting relevant discussions on the divinity of Christ as conveyed in the church’s historical creeds and confessions.
