"The New Testament lies hidden in the Old,
and the Old is unveiled in the New."
- Saint Augustine (from title page of Into the Sea, Out of the Tomb)
Without having to endure a weighty lecture on this topic, children can easily flip through the pages of the "Old and New" series books and ignite a simple yet deep understanding of the Old Testament foundations prefiguring the New Testament covenant between God and man.
It is refreshing to see an author realizes the importance of this finely woven thread in our salvation history. Absorbing this material as a child will assuredly provide them a deeper appreciation for the Faith and our place in salvation history. As a parent my heartfelt thanks to Maura Roan McKeegan for enlightening our children's minds to biblical typology.
