"When I decided 3 years ago, to create an illustrated gift book that explained the meaning of The Apostles' Creed and make it easier to memorise, I had no idea of the enlightening path it would lead to. Finally understanding the "The Apostles' Creed" and working out how to visualise it within a modern family context, has given me renewed clarity in the fundamentals of my faith and how to share the good news with others. Every day I live in the peace and joy of confidently knowing I am forgiven."

Forgiven. by Alison Smallwood
"Forgiven is a wonderful retelling of the Apostles' Creed that through Bible references, beautiful illustrations and storyline shares the gospel message that Jesus was crucified, died and was buried for us and our salvation. Whether it be a coffee table book in the foyer of a Christian business, a church gift given out at baptisms or a resource for reminding our elderly saints of the historic Christian faith this book offers a new creative way for us to share the timeless truths of Jesus Christ with our world."
“Beautifully crafted, masterfully illustrated, cleverly interpreted, this book powerfully speaks to both young and old as a visual accompaniment for the Apostle’s Creed- a delightful gift of encouragement & inspiration. ”
"You can’t describe it, it’s a very special book and its quite rare, she’s obviously a very, very talented book illustrator. If you go into a bookshop and you see it you will fall in love with it."
