Irenaeus is remembered for his work in helping the church to preserve the faith handed on by the apostles and to defend it when it was attacked. In this simply written and beautifully illustrated book, Simonetta Carr shows young readers the difficulties the early church faced and how Irenaeus taught Christians to discern truth from error by listening to the Bible. To Christians, the lessons Irenaeus taught are as important today as they were in his time.

Review quote

"I love Simonetta Carr's books. I know of no other volumes on Christian history that are so wonderfully accessible and beautifully illustrated. Now Simonetta brings to us the story of the second-century pastor and defender of orthodoxy Irenaeus of Lyon. The author skillfully weaves together historical facts and biblical meditations to produce a compelling account. I lament that my children are now too old to place on my lap so that I might read to them this excellent book about a most excellent man." --Todd Pruitt, pastor, Covenant Presbyterian Church, Harrisonburg, Virginia, and cohost of Mortification of Spin
