Product Details

Who was the first pope? Who is the pope today? What does he do? And why do we need one anyway? The answers to these questions and more can be found in this beautifully illustrated book for children. Our Holy Father, the Pope takes us back to the time of Jesus so that we can learn about the origins and role of the Papacy.

The storybook format begins with the Gospels: Jesus calling Simon, Jesus renaming him Peter, meaning "rock", and giving him the keys to the kingdom, and so on. It follows Peter as Jesus suffers, dies, and rises from the dead for all mankind. The descent of the Holy Spirit, the birth of the Church, and the death of Peter himself for the sake of Jesus also are described.

The Church carries on with a new leader to replace Peter, as she has down through the centuries to our own day. As children will learn from this book, although the Church has adapted to the times, the tasks of our modern popes are not that different from those of Peter.

The book includes brief biographies of some famous popes, a list of all the popes from Peter to the present, and a bibliography.

Includes beautiful and inspiring illustrations by renowned French illustrator Emmanuel Beaudesson.
