I just got back from three days at a homeschool convention. Still trying to recover from late nights and all day on my feet.
My favorite part was finding a new author. I am beyond excited to read his books. His name is Chuck Black and he does several series. The one I am most excited to try is The Kingdom Series, which covers all of Biblical history during medieval times. Someone shoot me now. Because if it has swords and knights, I am totally in. It's like the Narnia series, only the allegory is much more obvious that they are actually talking about God and the Bible.
This is the first book in the series. They are about $8 a piece. There are 6 total books in this series and it covers from Genesis through Revelation.
Then he has a book called Cloak of the Light, which is a story on modern day spiritual warfare. I haven't read it yet, but I am assuming it will be along the lines of Frank Peretti's books, which I also loved.
Here to order this one at Christian Book.
I am really excited to at some point read these to Owen. He loves this type of stuff and since the public school gave him a complex about his reading ability, we have been struggling with him declaring that he doesn't like books. I don't know what age group they are directed to, but once I start reading I will give you an update.
And they are all on audio recording. They hired a team from England to do the voices and apparently, it totally rocks. There was a whole bunch of young to teenage boys around this book table, as you can totally imagine, but some of the moms that I went with also said that these series rock. So I say give it a go. I know I am.
