Rise and Shine!: The Early Church is another wonderful book in the Pick Up 'n' Do series. Each lesson will give your kids 40 minutes to 1 1/2 hours of solid Bible teaching and serious discipleship on the growing church as found in the book of Acts. Bible lessons include: Jesus' ascension into heaven, the Holy Spirit comes at Pentecost, the martyrdom of Stephen, Philip and the Ehtiopian, Saul's conversion, Peter's jailbreak and Paul and Silas' imprisonment. Two options let teachers take the lesson from super simple to more challenging. For an "instant" lesson teach the Bible 4U and Shepherd's Spot sections. And the optional Workshop Wonders stretches each lesson with a craft, science or food activity. Teach your young believers what it means to be faithful disciples with this all-in-one resource!

E-BOOK EXCERPT

What has Alexander the Great to do with Jesus Christ? Or the legendary king's conquest of the Persian Empire (335–23 BCE) to do with the prophecies of the Old Testament? In many ways, the early Christian writings on Alexander and his legacy provide a lens through which it is possible to view the shaping of the literature and thought of the early church in the Greek East and the Latin West. This book articulates that fascinating discourse for the first time by focusing on the early Christian use of Alexander. Delving into an impressively deep pool of patristic literature written between 130–313 CE, Christian Thrue Djurslev offers original interpretations of various important authors, from the learned lawyer Tertullian to the 'Christian Cicero' Lactantius, and from the apologist Tatian to the first church historian Eusebius. He demonstrates that the early Christian adaptations of the Alexandrian myths created a new tradition that has continued to develop and expand ever since. This innovative work of reception studies is important reading for all scholars of Alexander the Great and early church history.

How and why did the early church grow in the first four hundred years despite disincentives, harassment, and occasional persecution? In this unique historical study, veteran scholar Alan Kreider delivers the fruit of a lifetime of study as he tells the amazing story of the spread of Christianity in the Roman Empire. Challenging traditional understandings, Kreider contends the church grew because the virtue of patience was of central importance in the life and witness of the early Christians. They wrote about patience, not evangelism, and reflected on prayer, catechesis, and worship, yet the church grew--not by specific strategies but by patient ferment.

The beautiful and charming translation originally made by Rev. Brownlie has stood the test of time as we can now look back and see with what elegance the very early church used in its worship of the one true God. While we today have taken worship to be more pragmatic and more existential, the original hymns of the church were mainly focused on the true theological aspects of God that made Him worthy of worship. We often have to take a step back and look at the old texts of the church to regain a truthful look at the Bible and worship is no different as this text takes us back to a time when worship was different.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Life and Practice in the Early Church brings together a range of primary texts from the church's first five centuries to demonstrate how early Christians practiced their faith. Rather than focusing on theology, these original documents shed light on how early believers "did church," addressing such practical questions as, how did the church administer baptism? How were sermons delivered? How did the early church carry out its missions endeavors? Early Christian writings reveal a great deal about the tradition, as well as the wider culture in which it developed. Far from being monolithic, the documents which present the voices of the early church fathers in their own words demonstrate variation and diversity regarding how faith was worked out during the patristic period. The texts illuminate who was eligible for baptism, what was expected of worshippers, how the Eucharist was celebrated, and how church offices and their functions were organized. Contextual introductions explain practices and their development for those with little prior knowledge of Christian history or tradition. The pieces included here, all in accessible English translation, represent such sources as Justin Martyr, Tertullian, the Cappadocians, Cyril of Jerusalem, John Chrysostom, and Augustine.
