Paperback. What do Adam and Jesus have in common? What do Eve and Mary have in common?
Much more than you think!
Including beautiful full color illustrations, Maura Roan McKeegan has brought to life biblical typology for children. Taking familiar biblical stories from the Old and New Testaments and placing them side by side, children can see biblical typology leap off the page.
Biblical typology is when a person or an event in the Old Testament prefigures a person or an event in the New Testament. The Bible is chock-full of these fascinating “types.”
Children now can discover similarities of types 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 Testament.
Recommended for ages 3 and up.
