New YA Bible Adventure Series - Relics of Power by RJ Peck
The Lion's Den is book one in a series of Bible Adventure stories for young adult. Twelve-year-old Christopher Cyprus has inherited the Legacy from his grandfather. Now it is his turn to become God's Secret Agent, time-traveling to help God's people when they get into a jam. His first assignment? Help Daniel the Prophet survive the night in The Lion's Den. And rescue Grandpa Jack on his final mission.
Book Review by Award-Winning Author Martin Roth
This is the first in an intriguing new series for youth and young adults, and I have to admit that right from the start I was hooked (though I am far removed from the target audience demographic). The theme is simple - twelve-year-old Christopher Cyprus is the latest in a long line of secret agents who have been used by God to help build His kingdom on Earth. It seems that in each book he will be required to go back in time and participate in some kind of adventure.
In this first book, Christopher receives, Mission Impossible-style, a secret message from a stranger. He is instructed to go back to ancient Babylon to help Daniel in the lion's den.
The book is fast paced and well written. It is full of atmosphere, taking us right into the heart of Babylon, with all its sights and sounds and smells. We learn enough about Christopher to enjoy being in his company. This is a great start to a new series. I highly recommend this book.
