Great for children of all ages!  Feb 28, 2005
As Jordan, Mariah and Joshua Abrams pushed open the secret door in the closet they could not possibly have imagined the journey God was laying before them. In Kenna Manning's book The Temple and the Sword these three children are taken on a journey that introduces them to Jesus in a very real and miraculous way. Using scripture throughout the book, Manning uses God's word to speak to the heart of each reader.

Having to face some harsh realities of life, these children are dealing with the death of their alcoholic father and the changes to their family that follows. It is 2027 and the world is becoming less tolerant to Christianity. But God has ways of revealing His truth to the Abrams children that fills their hearts and opens the door to a wonderful adventure. Along with their Uncle Paul and a journey through Solomon's Temple the real story is revealed to them; leading them to a deeper understanding of God's truth for life and His love for each one of us.

The Temple and the Sword grabs your attention and pulls you into the story from the beginning. Great for children of all ages. If you like C.S Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, you'll love Manning's Temple and the Sword.
This Is A Good Book  Feb 28, 2005
I would recommend this to my friends! I really like how it talks about life in the future and what it is like in Jerusalem. If you are a Christian it will make you stronger in your walk. If you don't know the Lord, it makes you think about maybe getting to know Jesus in your life because it teaches about him. I really like the pictures a lot. Also my favorite characters are Uncle Paul and Rabbi Benjamin. Jordan, age 12
a tool of Christian outreach  Dec 14, 2004
It is 2027 and many things have changed when it comes to technology and society, but daily life in what used to be America, and family troubles, are still very much the norm. Twelve-year-old Jordan and his younger brother and sister are struggling to come to terms with all that has changed in their lives, from their father's death to their having to sell virtually all of their possessions and move to a rented house in a not-so-good neighborhood. And then a voice calls to Jordan and he and his siblings are led to the attic. There, they find the source of the voice to be an ancient book, stashed away in an old trunk.

The book speaks to them and miraculously shows them things from the past. Realizing that this is a thing of great religious importance, they call their Uncle Paul who has always been one to speak to them of such things. Paul is understanding and listens to the children, then sees for himself the wonder of the book. They are then shown the Temple of Solomon and are left to ponder the meaning of what they've seen. In later chapters the four end up traveling to Israel and learn a good deal by visiting the Temple ruins and seeing the plans of it being reconstructed.

I am not certain who this book is truly aimed at, for it is a bit deep for young readers and the point of view switches from that of Jordan to that of the Uncle. Throughout the book the author takes every opportunity to explain the Christian point of view and at times this gets a bit tedious to read what is practically verbatim from the Bible. The fictional plot is quite simple and not all that exciting, though the gadgets that are described as will become available in the world just 25 years from now are interesting to read about. I was disturbed by the author's fictional description of a world police that forbids the discussion of religion in public. This seemed a reach to be relevant to the plot of the children's lives and also seemed to be a political commentary that was misplaced within a storybook.

What bothered me most though was the message that Jews have religion all wrong and then later in the book, the implied assumption that Wiccans are devil worshippers, actually possessed by the devil. The author called them "Wicks" but that really did little to disguise the implication.

The author does not try to hide the fact that this is a work of Christian Fiction. For what it is, an outreach to give readers understanding of Christianity and Jesus, and accept him into their lives, it is well done. So long as the reader knows what he or she is picking up, I see no problem with that. I only disagree with the putting down of other religions, simply because the author does not understand them and cannot see things from their point of view.

As a work of fiction, the story is somewhat weak, as a tool of Christian outreach, I would guess it is an interesting option.
