Review: The Church History ABCs

The Church History ABCs
by Stephen J. Nichols
illustrated by Ned Bustard
published by Crossway

The Church History ABCs is a trip through the alphabet with a major person from Christian history for each letter.  I really enjoyed this book, the illustrations are very nice and appealing to my children.  I haven't seen a book that give this great of information and summaries of the lives of saints who have gone before us.  Children are introduced to John Foxe, Charles Spurgeon, and John Newton and many more Christian history makers.  I can see this being a very helpful reference book to my children as they grow and a stepping point to learn more about some of other heroes of the faith.

There is also a Church History ABCs website.  It has some fun printable copywork, color pages, and timelines, even a "pin the beard on the theologian" game.  Great fun activities for homeschoolers using this book as part of a unit study or lesson.

I was provided a free copy of this book for the purposes of review, the opinions expressed are my own.
