What do the Old and New Testaments have in common? To answer this
question, Maura Roan McKeegan presents biblical typology for children.
Taking familiar stories from the Old and New Testaments and placing them
side by side, children can easily understand at an early age what St.
Augustine meant when he said that “the New Testament lies hidden in the
Old and the Old Testament is revealed in the New.”
In this third book in the Old and New series, author Maura Roan
McKeegan recounts how all the world spoke one language—until the people
of Shinar became too proud, and the Lord came down from heaven and
confused their words. What can undo the chaos? And how will Pentecost
help God’s children understand one another again?
Building the Way to Heaven helps young readers to see God’s plan of salvation unfold within the stories of the Tower of Babel and Pentecost.
See biblical typology—the Old Testament people, symbols, and events that foreshadow the New Testament—come to life in Building the Way to Heaven.
