Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. In the past, blogging about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette were a big part of the blog. I'm giving that up though. I just can't handle it anymore.
All About Jesus, From A to Z - Review the Acrostic of Jesus

Resurrection, because Jesus gives life to the dead; Before he was risen, he gave his life in our stead. See, all of us will die, returning back to the dust; But he’ll raise us like Lazarus—we just have to trust. Without sin, he is righteous, born of a virgin. By his resurrection, our salvation is certain. Now he is risen, ruling, and reigning, Soon he’ll be returning, to begin the final raising!
Catechism can be fun! The Acrostic of Jesusis a joy to read over and over again, and a brilliant tool to help kids gain a greater understanding of Christ. Young readers will learn “Christology”—the study of Jesus. The more we learn about Jesus, the more reasons we have to love him!
By giving children an alphabetical list of the names and attributes of Jesus written with a rhyming beat, Jonathan Gibson and Timothy Brindle makeThe Acrostic of Jesusfun to read and simple to memorize. Each characteristic, A to Z, weaves together a beautiful picture of who Jesus is and why he came to earth.
Using the alphabet to teach about God has a rich history in the Bible, especially in the Psalms and Lamentations. Several of the psalms—notably Psalm 119—begin with letters of the Hebrew alphabet, forming an acrostic that spells out the entire alphabet.
The authors make learning Christology easy and enjoyable. Their book shows Jesus as he is, not “just to know about him more in our brains, but to know him as the God of glory who reigns.”
Illustrated by C. S. Fritz,The Acrostic of Jesusis the second in the series, An Acrostic Theology for Kids, introducing children ages five to eleven to systematic theology uniquely on their age level.
