Item Description...
"Who were the first Christians?" Chris asked. Grandpa smiled and said, "Oh that's quite a story, Chris. A great story, in fact." Twelve-year-old Christopher has always tried to sort truth from fiction. Ever since The Very First Christmas and The First Easter, he looked for the story behind the story. This time, Christopher's grandfather teaches him about the drama of Pentecost and the powerful change God brought the world through Peter, Paul, and the very first Christians.

Publishers Description
In the follow-up to The Very First Christmas and The Very First Easter, 12-year-old Christopher entreats his grandfather to tell him about the first Christians. Using the book of Acts as a foundation, Christopher's grandfather helps him visualize the significance of that historical time.

Christopher learns about Peter, Paul, and Stephen. He discovers the important contributions each made to the Church. And he finds that these real stories are better than anything a storyteller could imagine.

The award-winning team of Paul L. Maier and Francisco Ordaz work together again to bring children a vivid picture of the first days of Christianity. The Very First Christians makes a wonderful gift for children, families, and friends.

Review on The Very First Christians by Paul L. Maier  Nov 27, 2006
Hello! You can call me StoryMaker. The Very First Christians by Paul Maier sums up the book of Acts in a picture book full of detailed paintings. Christopher and his grandfather are just fishing when Chris wonders about a certain fish symbol. Chris's grandfather is happy to tell him that its an early symbol of Christianity and ends up telling Chris all about the early Christians. Practically everything in Acts is told in this book in a child-friendly way that you are bound to love. They cover everything from Jesus' ascencion to Stephen getting martyred to how the church got started. This is a must-have for your Christian book collection! Signed, StoryMaker. "Gotta trust the kid's review!"
Ably retells a classic and engaging story  Oct 17, 2001
In The Very First Christians, twelve-year-old Christopher is taught by his grandfather about the drama of Pentecost and the powerful changes God brought to the world through Peter, Paul, and the very first Christians following the death and resurrection of Jesus. Paul Maier (professor of ancient history at Western Michigan University) ably retells a classic and engaging story drawn from Christian history, and one which is superbly enhanced throughout by Francisco Ordaz's "museum quality" paintings. The Very First Christians is an enthusiastically recommended picturebook for family, parochial school, Sunday School, Bible Camp, and community library collections.
