Ed Dunlop is a genius! You will be in awe as you begin to uncover how he ties together scripture with the smallest detail. The more I read, the more I wonder how much I missed. Probably why my 9 yr. old son is rereading the set...after he jumped ahead of our "family reading" and read the whole series in a matter of days! You will not be disappointed! I am getting just as much out of these as my children! Very convicting...but in a gentle way! Thought provoking! You could easily turn this into family devotion time! If I could only pick one book (other than the Bible)to buy for my children, I'd pick one of these!
This is an amazing set of books. Parents, if you want to see what faith truly is, or how to serve God and be yielded to His will, these books are a must read! My 9 year old daughter read the whole set of books in a matter of days, and told me that she now understands the Bible better. I can say, without any reservation, that she is right. This series of books does help you understand the Bible better. Do not miss out on a great allegory, even better and easier to understand than Pilgrim's Progress.
My family has been reading the Terrestria Chronicles together as a family. We have family devotions each morning but in the evening after the supper meal, the children know that they need to clear the table quickly so they can sit and listen to me read the book to the family. We are now on book 4. The children love the Terrestria books! I love the books! They are great. I am purchasing a few more sets with the study guide to be able to give to some of our church families. I believe every Christian should read these books. They have deepened my love for my Saviour. Although the books are fiction the analogies they hold have inflamed my love and zeal for the Lord. These books keep you on the edge of your seat with excitement and anticipation. You find yourself saddened when Josiah goes the wrong way and feel excited when he gets right with the King. These books typify the Christian life and the struggles that are faced. With every trial there is truth to be learned on how to overcome. These books are not just for children but even the seasoned Christian should read and reread these books to keep their love and devotion to the Lord fresh. I wholeheartedly recommend these books.
The truths portrayed in these books are amazing! The author has made the Christian walk come alive in story form that grips the imagination, but also teaches and convicts those with a "hearing ear". Our entire family is enjoying these books and we are recommending them to everyone!
My family is a reading family. We have read the series and can say without reservation that this is the best read we have ever come across! This faith building allegory will keep you ruminating on its content all day! We don't want to put the book down and stop at the end of a chapter, but we will so that we can just enjoy and absorb what has unfolded in each chapter. These stories are captivating for adults, teens and children alike. They have stimulated not only great spiritual conversations in our home...but discussions about the adventures within the stories! A side interest about "castles" is also developing! I recommend this series to everyone...Christian or otherwise! They are POWERFUL!
