What do the Old and New Testaments have in common? To answer this question, author Maura Roan McKeegan presents a biblical typology for children. Seeing familiar stories from the Old and New Testaments placed side by side, children can discover at an early age what St. Augustine meant when he said that “the New Testament lies hidden in the Old, and the Old is unveiled in the New.” In her latest book, Beloved Son: Joseph and Jesus, the author present the story of Joseph, son of Jacob, and his journey: from being a beloved son to a slave and then to the liberator of the brothers who betrayed him—alongside Jesus’s life, death, and Resurrection. Through Joseph and Jesus, the book seeks to teach children to learn to trust God, no matter where He leads obedience to God’s plan can lead to truly unexpected places.

The End of the Fiery Sword: Adam & Eve and Jesus & Mary,
Building the Way to Heaven: The Tower of Babel and Pentecost,
Saved by the Lamb: Moses and Jesus, and
