What do Adam and Jesus have in common? What do Eve and Mary have in common?
More than you think!
With full color illustrations, Maura Roan McKeegan has brought to life biblical typology for children. Presenting the stories of Adam and Eve and Jesus and Mary and placing them side by side, children can see biblical typology jump off the page.
In The End of the Fiery Sword, children will discover similarities between persons or events in the Old Testament that foreshadow persons or events in the New Testament without any difficulty and easily understand at an early age what St. Augustine meant when he said that the New Testament lies hidden in the Old and the Old Testament is revealed in the New.
Recommended for ages 7 and up.
