It’s Passover in Jerusalem, and the young weaver Shira wants to do something special for the Lord Yeshua. She wishes she could just tell Him how much she loves Him, but she is mute. Instead, she offers the work of her hands and presents a gift that is more marvelous than anyone could ever have imagined.

In rhyming text, this ABC book focuses on aspects unique to the Catholic faith, such as Queen of Heaven, Rosary, Sacraments, and Tabernacle. Something for "X" and "Z"? You bet!

​A Catholic ABC

Cold and cranky, the young daughter of the Bethlehem innkeeper is annoyed with how crowded her home is. Remembering the young couple staying in her family's stable across the lane, she brings them fire for warmth. When she encounters the newborn Jesus, she finds her mood suddenly altered and her life forever changed.

Teenager Tabby Long can't understand her father's miraculous healing and immediate conversion to Christ . . . that is until she inserts herself into Scripture and imagines herself in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus' crucifixion. She's Tabitha Longinus, daughter of the Roman centurion whose lance pierces the Lord's side, bringing the soldier healing and faith. But can she possibly follow her father's path to conversion?
