A Riveting Medieval Parallel to the Bible

Good and evil clash. Leinad and Cedric are determined to not only survive, but claim hope and victory! In"Kingdom's Dawn," Leinad and Tess, along with all the king's people, must escape slavery by the powerful Lord Fairos. "Kingdom's Hope" finds them free andarriving in the Chessington Valley. But when they forget the king, will Kergon and the Kessons capture them for good? After many years, "Kingdom's Edge" finds Cedric living a hopeless life untila stranger appears with powerful words of a new kingdom and a grand army. Finally, "Kingdom's Reign" marches you through the danger of earth's last days as the evil dark knightthreatens to defeat the prince once and for all. Swords, knights, and battles define these captivating tales that parallel biblical events from Genesis to Revelation!

"He's just ayoung man, but that doesn't change the truth. "

"He was chosen... "

Sixteen-year-old Leinad thought he was a common farmer'sson, nothing more. He wondered why his father had trained him for years to master the sword--not exactly a tool of the trade for farmers--but one tragic event initiates a world of revelation.

Only then does he begin to understand his calling--a calling no other man in the entire kingdom of Arrethtrae can fulfill--a calling given him by the King himself.

Teamed with a young slave girl, Leinad is thrust into adversity and danger--for the Dark Knight and his vicious Shadow Warriors will stop at nothing to thwart the King's plan torestore the kingdom. Leinad will need more than a sharp blade and a swift hand to fulfill his mission and survive the evil plots of the King's sworn enemies!

Journey to Arrethtrae, where theKing and His Son implement a bold plan to save their kingdom; where courage, faith, and loyalty stand tall in the face of opposition; where good will not bow to evil--and the future of a kingdom lies in the handsof a young man.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS INCLUDED

Story Behind the Book

"When my six kids' eyes glossedover during a reading from the Bible, I paused to explain the significance of redemption to a sin-sick soul. I was rewarded with patronizing elephant nods and more blank stares. Shortly thereafter, I awoke in the middle ofthe night with a medieval story enveloping my mind. I wrote it down and later read it to my children. Their waning attention transformed into complete anticipation. I was amazed and disappointed. Why did it take afictional story, not a Bible passage, to get that response? Then I realized--that is how Jesus taught! Parables are powerful! I penned the Kingdom series to help young people get excited about the supremelysignificant story of Jesus Christ and His mission to save mankind."
