Product Description

The Sword Bearer - It was John's birthday. He would be thirteen. And what's more, it was on this day that his grandmother would tell him the mystery of his locket ... and of his parents. But it was not to be. Before he could find out, he was magically transported to the land of Anthropos where he was startled to be hailed as the Sword Bearer, the slayer of the Goblin Prince. Here, in this imaginative story of the early history of Anthropos, John White captures the excitement and wonder of another world.

Publisher's Description

It was John's birthday. He would be thirteen. And what's more, it was on this day that his grandmother would tell him the mystery of his locket . . . And of his parents. But it was not to be. Before he could find out, he was magically transported to the land of Anthropos where he was startled to be hailed as the Sword Bearer, the slayer of the Goblin Prince. Here, in the imaginative story of the early history of Anthropos, John White captures the excitement and wonder of another world.

Author Bio

John White was born in Liverpool, England, on March 5, 1924, and grew up in Manchester. After serving as a reconnaissance photographer in the Fleet Air Arms during World War II, he completed medical training at Manchester University. He later participated in a variety of short-term missions efforts (including Bible smuggling!) and capitalized on many opportunities to encourage Christians behind the Iron Curtain during the beginning of the Cold War. On June 25, 1955, White married Laureate May O'Hara. From 1955 to 1964 he served as a medical missionary with New Tribes Mission. Later he was appointed associate general secretary of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students of Latin America. White emigrated to Canada with his family in 1965 and later completed his residency in psychiatry in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He next filled the post of associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Manitoba and also served locally as pastor of Church of the Way. He wrote 25 books as well as numerous articles and study guides. A much sought-after speaker, he lectured around the world at churches, conferences and leadership events. During his later life, White moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, helping to plant a Vineyard church there (Surrey Vineyard) and becoming involved in the larger Vineyard Christian Fellowship. John White died in 2002, but his written ministry lives on, with over 1.5 million of his books in print.

    I read the Tower of Geburah and the Iron Sceptre when I was a teenager, but I didn't realize there was four more in the series. I'm just now reading them them in order, and I'm on Gaal the Conqueror. It's great to discover the rest of the history of Anthropos. I still have to say, though, the Chronicles of Narnia are still my favorites.

    THIS IS AWESOME!!! WONDERFUL! SUSPENSEFUL! READ IT! It's unpredictable and AMAZING! It has you realize how much power God really has, and you learn fast because you CAN'T PUT IT DOWN! I LOVED IT! You understand how evil Satan is, and how Perfect the Lord is! Worth more than the price! I'm in 5th grade, and all kids (Or adults...or teenagers) that have even the least bit of liking for Fantasy will love it!

    I first read this whole series when I was in middle school and I LOVED it. However, I started to read this series again recently, and I often felt like I was reading a combination of C.S. Lewis' _The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe_ series and J.R.R. Tolkien's _The Lord of the Rings_ trilogy. The stories are interesting and exciting; however they stray from originality and brilliance and often one wonders if they are reading the Archives of Anthropos or a re-telling of a different story.
