“A picture is worth a thousand words, and the Word of God is worth more than the world and all that is in it. In this wonderful little book, Mize combines Luther’s simple and beautiful teaching with a little bit of his own, and illustrates it with the beauty of timeless Christian art. A feast for eyes and heart, mind and soul, this book is a wonderful devotional bringing us once more to the beauty of our Savior.”
“Beauty and Catechesis is not just “another catechism resource” to sit on the shelf. Pastor Gaven Mize has woven a delightful tapestry richly adding to the prayer life of the church. The blending of classical art, keen theological insights, and elegant prayers, make this a must have for those who love praying the catechism with their family. Young and old alike will find new jewels as the art, catechism, reflections, and prayers, draw one deeper into the Scriptures and the Christ who is found therein.”
“Beauty and Catechesis is a book written for Christians of all ages: for the young Christian who is just beginning to learn Luther’s Small Catechism and for any Christian who is continually learning the truth of the Scripture. Pastor Mize has provided a feast for the eyes and for the soul with gorgeous art from many time periods, Christ-centered devotions, and beautiful prayers, and collects. The accounts of the Old Testament are brought to life, focusing the Christian heart on Jesus Christ. Lutheran Church will GREATLY benefit from this book.”

Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church stands as a beacon of the promise of Christ on the hill in Hickory, North Carolina. We are steeped in traditional liturgy and love the Lutheran Confessions. We hold that God's inerrant Word is the true source of Law and Gospel and we preach Christ crucified for the forgiveness of sins. Sunday services being at 10:30AM.
Confirmation is NOT graduation. We constantly learn and grow in the faith given to us by Christ Himself.
"As the head of the household should teach..." Luther wrote these words for the whole family to learn over an entire life time.
From Father to Mother to children to our Sunday school rooms we must make sure we are teaching rightly and faithfully. Mize Family Books will strive to produce these materials, so help us God!
