Introduce children to the Apostles' Creed and the foundations of the Catholic faith.

As children begin to question more about their faith, use The Creed Explained to help them understand the basic beliefs held by the Catholic Church, and to begin delving more deeply into their faith.

This guide explores each of the twelve "articles", or lines, of the Apostles' Creed. The chapters examine the articles piece by piece and consider what each piece means. Quotes and prayers from various saints and theologians give more depth to the articles. Reflections and notebook sections conclude each chapter and provide ways for children to figure out how the articles apply in their own lives.

The Creed Explained offers the Apostles' Creed as a guideline for taking them through the basic tenets of Catholicism, and begins to bring them into a deeper understanding of God.

Ideal for ages 8 - 12.

Silvia Vecchini was born in 1975 in Saint Francis's province-Perugia, Italy-and holds a degree in modern literature from the Theological Institute of Assisi. She is the author of numerous books for children as well as a number of volumes of scholarly and educational material. Along with her husband, Antonio Vincenti, Silvia founded the Sycamore Group, which promotes the work of children and adolescent authors and illustrators and focuses on catechetical story-telling. The Creed Explained and The Ten Commandments Explained are her two bestselling titles with Pauline Books & Media.

"This series by Silvia Vecchini is a valuable catechetical aid for parents and teachers, and a smart, approachable resource for young people to help them not only know, but understand and live our Catholic faith. In The Creed Explained, The Ten Commandments Explained, and Works of Mercy Explained, Vecchini skillfully weaves together a rich, yet focused treasury of Scripture and Tradition, wisdom from the popes and the saints, Church documents, the prayers of the Mass, Church history, and more to thoroughly explain and celebrate the fundamentals of our faith. Each book also includes reflection questions, prayers, Scripture meditations, and action points to help young people open themselves up to experiencing the authentic joy and freedom that comes from a living relationship with Christ. Parents, teachers, and youth ministers can benefit from the style and approach of this series, which is a perfect springboard for group discussions, activities, service projects, and guided prayer experiences. A true celebration of faith, these books are a solid addition to home, classroom and parish libraries."
