About this item

Age Range: 8 and up

"I am Eve, the first woman God made. I have come to tell you about the creation of the world and what happened in Eden.”

So begins one of the many exciting lessons in this surprising adventure catechism — lessons taught by Abraham, St. Patrick, St. Cecilia, and, of course, Eve, the mother of all mankind.

Eve tells young Cecilia and Michael how the world was made and how the Devil deceived her. She describes the sorrowful events that followed. Abraham picks up the story, speaking of his own life, of Moses, and of the savior God promised the Jews.

But this is an adventure catechism, so in these pages there's more than talk: Abraham takes the children back in time to watch Moses save the Israelites by parting the Red Sea. St. Patrick lets them see the Druids try to kill him for his Catholic faith. And he takes Michael and Cecilia to Bethlehem, where they stand with the shepherds in adoration of the newborn King.

Between catechism lessons taught by saints, the children travel back in time to witness persecuted Catholics risking their lives to attend furtive Masses in Roman days, in Reformation England, and in the Soviet Union just a few decades ago.

Through words and witnessing, deeds and doctrine, adventurous Michael and Cecilia learn the central truths of our Catholic Faith and discover how important they are, even today.

Perfect catechism for little ones
I bought this for my grandsons, who love stories and who need catechesis on their level. This volume is written by a British author, and we love the cleverness of the story-telling.

Excellent for First Communicants
This book is so fun, I will be reading it to the children that I teach for First Communion class. This is an older book so it speaks of the Latin Mass, but leads to great discussions as well. The story is based in England and speaks of the Trinity and many other catechist lessons in a way that is easy for kids to understand. All while having an adventure through time!

A wonderful book for First Communion Preparation
I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is an indispensable piece of our First Holy Communion preparation for our children. We've read it many times and given many copies as gifts. Faithful to the Magisterium and well-written enough to explain complex things to adults, yet thoroughly entertaining.
