Item Description...
Overview
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not planning on reading the rest of the series  May 2, 2005
A shallow and transparent allegory espousing a narrow Christian worldview where good triumphs over evil by violence, rather than by the power of love. Add to that as story which lacks depth of plot, and has almost no meaningful character development. The result is a story which I found offensive to the extent that I regret reading it to my kids.

So ... if you looking for a fantasy novel that bolsters your belief in a titanic and violent struggle between good and evil, then you may love this book. If like me, you call yourself a Christian but believe that God calls Christians to overcome evil with acts of kindness, you will find the book deeply obnoxious. If you are of a faith other than Christianity, there is a good chance you will find it to be a shallow and preachy treatise on a particular Christian worldview which thinks it knows all the answers and does not have patience other faiths.
 
Excellently written Christian fantasy  Nov 13, 2001
I read this when I was in grade school the first time around, and thought it was decent. It wasn't until I decided to read it again recently that I realized what a truly well-written book this is! Honestly, this book is a lot closer to the quality of C.S. Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia" than I realized. I would also compare this writing to many of Stephen Lawhead's works.

White's writing is solid, well-paced, and skillful, and his characters are decently well-developed. He works the message of the gospel (as well as some solid Christian-living principles) in the story with a delicate touch, although at no point is the book preachy, dogmatic, or cheesy.

I was very happy with the quality of writing to be found in this book (NOT a common occurrence in christian fiction), and plan to read the rest of the series.

 
Love'd the whole set....  Feb 9, 1999
John White's "The Sword Bearer" is not only a great book, but it's the start to a great series of books... I wish I wouldn't have read this series only because now I want to read them all over again!
 
Tracing history back through time  Dec 19, 1997
With each book of his "Archives of Anthropos," John White weaves a better story, making up for the fact that the writing is a bit plain in style. In this book, we get to travel back in time, rather than forward, and learn more of the history that makes Anthropos so interesting.
