The adventures of the apostles, as recorded by Saint Luke in the New Testament, are told for young readers with vibrant and expressive four-color, comic-book style illustrations. The simple but engaging text begins where The Illustrated Gospel for Children leaves off - with Pentecost, when the followers of Jesus are transformed by the gifts of the Holy Spirit into heroic witnesses of the Resurrection of Christ. The experiences of the early Church -- the works of mercy, the miraculous healings, and the amazing conversions -- come to life in these seventeen inspiring stories of the faith and courage.
