In Robbie Cheuvront and Erik Reed's Christian adventure novel, The Guardian, a young college student finds herself in possession of an ancient biblical scroll and under obligation to guard it for the rest of her life. Although this is a daunting task for someone who has lived a life outside of the church, the girl nevertheless accepts the calling. However, she is not alone. Anna Riley, this new guardian of the scroll, is surrounded on her journey to unlock the scrolls secrets by well meaning people who unwittingly cause harm, dangerous adversaries who want the scroll for their own purposes, and friends who have sworn to God to protect both the scroll and the one who guards it.
Bequeathed to Anna by her grandfather, a man who had dedicated his life to the role of guardian, the scroll is believed to be the one God gave John the Disciple in the book of Revelation. It was then passed down and protected through the numerous generations of John's descendants. Anna is a direct descendent. It is said that the scroll contains more information about John's vision regarding the end times information not included in the Bible. The moment Anna accepts the task of protecting the scroll, she slaps a red target on her back. The artifact is being hunted by the Roman Catholic Church; but, the force behind this relentless search is the Prince of Darkness himself.
Solomon writes in the book of Proverbs, "Do not forsake your friend Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother who is far away." This is a lesson Anna learns when she is deserted by her family, yet defended and protected by loyal friends. Among those friends is a potential romantic interest, Jason Lang. Together, they strive to uncover the riddle contained in the scroll.
Religious doctrine is not discussed or defended in the novel. However, numerous controversial beliefs are apparent throughout the story. A conviction in the complete sovereignty of God that He determines everything that comes to pass along with the idea of an addition to the existing Bible (with the words of the scroll) make this a novel that not all audiences will be comfortable with.
I would recommend this novel to those who enjoy the stories of Indiana Jones and Dan Brown's DaVinci Code, only this time told with a twist. Lucinda Sweazey, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
"I haven't read a book front to back in a long time but The Guardian was one that I just couldn't put down! I knew Robbie Cheuvront was a very creative person from writing songs with him over the years. But as a Novelist, Robbie has, without a doubt, taken his craft to a whole new level!" - Richie McDonald, Former Lead Singer of BNA recording artists LoneStar, writer of multiple BillBoard #1 songs, and CMA and ACM award winner.
"Having been privileged to work with Robbie co-writing songs and recording in the studio,I'm certain anything with his name on it deserves a closer look--he is the definition of multitalented." -Chris Waters, Grammy Award winning writer of multiple BillBoard #1 songs, and also an award winning columnist and critic (Graduate of the Culinary Institute of America) for a food magazine in the San Antonio area.
This book was "unputdownable" for me! From the moment I started reading, I was on the journey with Anna. I felt her successes and her losses. The story is well written and the characters seem real. The Epilogue was a thrilling point of expectation and promise for me! I recommend this to all readers. Groups will find discussion questions at the end with many other points of discussion throughout the book.
Hairbreadth escapes, the deceptions of power-hungry church leaders, murders, even entry into the ancient holy of holies make for a riveting tale. Recommend to those who enjoy action-packed Christian fiction.
The main characters are so lifelike the reader cheers them on during every step of the quest. The dialogue is natural; the settings are vivid; and, by the story's end, there is a good Christian lesson to be learned. I highly recommend this book for fans of adventure stories.
