Manna & Mercy
Bring your bible! The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is recommended, because that’s what you’ll hear in worship at All Saints.
The book Manna & Mercy by Dan Ehrlander will be another main “text book” for Fall 2014. It’s more like a comic book than a text book–one you get to color and decorate yourself! It tells the whole story of the bible–Genesis to Revelation–creation to the fulfillment of time.
Martin Luther’s Small Catechism will be used as well.
Manna & Mercy and the Small Catechism will be provided to students at no cost. At students’ request, bibles can be provided as well.
