The Church Rocks: A History of the Catholic Church for Kids and Their Parents a

By Hill, Sr Mary Lea (Author)
$30.95 AUD

The story of the Church is an epic drama, filled with adventure, danger, politics, sacrifice, and courage. Sister Mary Lea Hill tells this exciting story in a book sure to thrill children ages 10 and up, taking readers on a whirlwind tour of Church history that will enlighten and entertain everyone.

Hill starts with the very beginnings of Christianity and goes on to the troubles of the early Church, the conversion of Constantine, the "days of danger" of the fifth-century persecutions, the mystery of the Dark Ages, the Great Schism, the different popes, saints, and missionaries, the Crusades, the breakaway of the Protestant Reformation, the dialogue between science and religion, political movements, and finally brings readers to the new evangelization of the 21st century.

Sometimes it's easy to feel disconnected from the past: this is true for families and countries, and it's also true for religions. The Church Rocks will help young readers reconnect with their collective history and understand how the past led to the present and leads on still further into the future.
