Od will not bow to evil; and where hope and compassion are as powerful weapons as the sword DISCUSSION UESTIONS INCLUDED Story Behind the Book“When my six kids’ eyes glossed over 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 blank stares Shortly thereafter I awoke in the middle of the 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 a fictional 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 supremely significant story of Jesus Christ and His mission to save mankind” Chuck Black. I love the way that these books have taken the stories of the Bible and put them in a medieval adventure kind of setting The only thing that bothered me with this book was that this book takes the view of the rapture and I don't believe that their will be a rapture but other than that I really am enjoying this series

The stranger arrived For Cedric of Chessington every day is the same full of poverty and despair And he knows that will never change Or so he thinks Then a stranger comes to the city Drawn to the man’s mysterious ways Cedric discovers the stranger’s humility belies great strength and wisdom That’s when an astounding truth becomes clear the stranger is a Master of the Sword and He is there to train Cedric Suddenly propelled into a desperate battle against evil Cedric must rely on the Master’s training if he is going to survive But the ultimate battle is yet to come for the Dark Knight is at work implementing his plan to take over the kingdom Will Cedric be ready to stand in the face of pure evil Journey to Arrethtrae where the King and His Son implement a bold plan to save their kingdom; where courage faith and loyalty stand tall in the face of opposition; where go. I very much related and like Cedric the main character of this book however I felt the Prince Jesus' character seemed rather distant untangible and almost Cold The author said he was compassionate but that never really came through in any of his actions or words I did really enjoy the Silent WarriorsShadow Warriors aspect I thought that was uniue and a great way of portraying angelsdemons Including one of the Silent Warriors talking about his old friends that followed Lucifer's character A great way of telling it I did also enjoy the writing style of this book Complex enough for an avid adult reader to be entertained simple enough for a child to understand I also thought this moved a little too fast and told so many stories at once It was at a much faster pace than the previous two books possibly because this was truly the first one he wrote before he turned it into a series Not sure but because of this I felt some things were not explained well

    At first I was delighted that I'd given this series a second chance The writing is a vast improvement on the first two books Kingdom's Dawn and Kingdom's Hope The opening is less allegorical and of fantasy adventure Top marks It was greatBut then as the allegorical content became obvious I became increasingly disturbed by what the story was presenting The 'Jesus figure' the Prince of this story is a super fighter who trains his devoted band of knights in the art of swordplay Nonetheless the Prince has a lot in common with the Jesus who is willing to sacrifice all to save the world BUUUUUUUUUTTT yeah a very big BUT I felt I was looking at the idealised revolutionary Jesus who was the desire of all the first century Jews who wanted a warrior commander to expel the Romans This allegory was a makeover of Jesus I felt uncomfortable with It wasn't entirely wrong but being partly right made it worse for me I felt that the unrecognised stronghold of violent thinking that dominates much of Christian fantasy fiction had slipped into this allegory the very place it shouldn't be

    This book is exciting and heart stopping It is about a man called Cedric and his friend William They start out poor and not noble until a prince of the king makes them his knights and leads them to war I decided to read this book because I wanted to know how peoples life was back then I wanted to know if it was hard and miserable or if it was wonderful and fantastic This fits to A book that teaches you about another time in history This is a good thing to have on the bingo board because it teaches you about another time in history and who sacrificed there life for you to live today I found Derek interesting because before the knights told him the story about the Prince He was mean and didn't have any feelings for anyone else and only cared about himself After he got told the story he was respecting his family My favourite uote from the book was This family was transformed by His story and I knew they would never be the same I like this uote because it means even one person can be the difference in life One person can make you succeed or fail I learnt from this book that we are lucky to have such an easy life Those people had to fight to be able to have such an easy life

    This book allegorizes Christ's time on earth the ministry of the apostles and Christ's second coming The author's eschatological views were evident in this book than in the previous two I'm curious to see where the next book will pick up as this one ended with the rapture of the saintsThe three star rating is due to the minimal violence mainly sword fights although the Prince is described as being beaten and hanged I would also take exception to the author's eschatology There was no romance and overall it was an interesting read

    Wow This is my favorite book in the series so far and has the potential to be my favorite even after I've read the restI loved the allegory in this book It was such a wonderful depiction of everything that Christianity is founded on God's love for us and how that affects the choices we make I loved the parallel of Jesus ministry death resurrection and even the rapture It was so refreshing and such a challenge to my faith When I reached the final page I felt so enthusiastic to make the right choices for My King The message was so powerful I just wanted to throw my hands up and laugh and shout and Praise the Lord for all that he has done for meThis book was such an inspiration and it truly blessed me and encouraged me in my faith Thank you Chuck Black for such an empowering faith thrill ride

    This is where everything he has been doing to try to write without magic comes back to bite him Jesus performed miracles They were miracles and you can't get away from itHere the Son is a really good swordsman lives for a few months and is uickly executed only to rise and leave For no apparent reason The incarnation and the resurrection are the most crucial moments in the Bible and both are miracles on level with only creation itself This jumps past them in three chaptersIn fact this little book blitzed through the New Testament It basically ends at the rapture There are three of these If he wanted to write a Left Behind series he should have just stuck with thatInstead of providing talking points he muddies the water Imagine being a childWhy is Jesus sword fighting?Where did the Son come from?How did he rise?Why did he have to die in the first place?Those uestions are not only never answered they are borderline unanswerable in the context of this book This one this was hard Jesus' life and work deserved better than this

    Kingdom's Edge continues the Kingdom series with exciting action and inspiring heroic choices As a growing writer is it fun to read through Black's series and watch him grow in the art of fiction too
