About More Than a Passing Glance: Early Christian Art

"Susan Elliott merges her passion for early Christian art and her love for the Bible in this layman's guide to early Christian art. Susan offers a unique Christian perspective on ancient concepts and symbolism. Learn about early Christians, what motivated their art, and the messages they left behind. This book was written for anyone who ever looked at Christian art and wondered.

This material is great to incorporate into a hands-on art class.

About The Book God "Breathed"

"The very foundation of Christianity is the fact that Jesus Christ is the "only begotten Son of God" (John 3:16). But, what assurance exists that He is deity, except that the Holy Scriptures are proven to be the infallible message from God? Since the Bible was written by human beings for human beings, man's very hope rests upon the question, "Could the Scriptures be the very Word of God, though penned by men?" Brother Mosher will affirm the answer to be "yes!"
