Interested in learning about the lives and examples of early Christian believers in Church history?  Since I first learned a little about church history and the Church leader Athanasius, I always thought his life was worth studying more in-depth for not just historical knowledge but encouragement as a Christian for today’s contemporary world.  Now with this book written by Simonetta Carr both adults and children can learn about Athanasius and be edified!  This book is part of the Christian Biographies for Young Readers Series and this is the first volume I read aloud to my three daughters.

Purpose: In this session we shall explore what is the doctrine of adoption with four questions so that we can further appreciate God’s work of saving us.
