Some lessons we never outgrow. The alphabet we recite and the numbers we count--we need them day by day. In a similar way, Christians never outgrow their first lessons in the faith. The Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, and the Lord's Prayer remain part of daily living and believing. Like letters and numbers, they form our thoughts and guide our lives. In this book fine works of art and stirring meditations will help you embrace and understand the eternal truths of the Bible. This book helps believers--whether young or mature--connect the most foundational beliefs of Christianity to their everyday lives. Each devotion begins with a central aspect of Christian belief such as the Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, and the Lord's Prayer. As you turn each page, fine works of art will intrigue your eyes and enrich your understanding of Christian teaching. Works of art by Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Holbein, Cranach, Rubens, Whistler, Gauguin, Tanner, Dali, and more are included. Hardcover with dustjacket.
