The first 450 years of Church history is a foundational time period during the establishment of the Church of Christ. All later history depends on the precedences set during these early years. Paidea Classics initial publications focus heavily on this critical time period.
I have uploaded a pdf sample of Stories from Church History, Volume 1.
You can see how it correlates with A Children's History of the Church here:
Here is a sample of Stories from Church History, Volume 2.
These three volumes including Stories from Church History, Volume 2, which is coming out, hopefully by the end of August, provides good coverage of the first 450 years of Church history.
A Children's History of the Church is the history spine which connects the overall events of history during this time period together, describing in more detail the councils, the heresies, and major happenings of various geographical regions. While the two volumes of Stories from Church History compliment it by providing short stories of major historical figures and saints, often only briefly mentioned in A Children's History of the Church. These short stories more effectively capture the child's heart and interest in the historical narrative. The history spine alone would be too dry and fast paced. The stories alone would fail to provide necessary context in relationship to the greater story line and major concurrent events. The three volumes together provide comprehensive and balanced coverage that is both broad in scope while also engaging, helping the child to figuratively enter into the experience being shared in story form.
There is a chart in the appendix of both volumes of Stories from Church History that correlate the stories with the pages where their references are found in A Child's history of the Church. This chart is intended to simplify lesson planning. A reading can be done first from A Children's History of the Church, which is then followed by a complimentary short story.
Paidea Classics also publishes, and carries titles from other publishers, that compliment this time period as well. These volumes together, form a very comprehensive study of the early Church that is both informative and a joy to read.
